FIRST PERIOD

20:00: Tonight's game is now underway.

18:00: Winnipeg carried the play in the early going; buzzing around the Oilers net with a couple of scoring chances, though only one official shot on net.

15:10: Winnipeg's Matthieu Perreault took a hard hit into the boards by Jeff Petry and had to be helped off the ice and into the dressing room. 13:33: Keith Aulie upended Jacob Trouba by sticking out his leg and as a result, Aulie headed to the box to give Winnipeg the game's first power play.

12:14: Winnipeg got on the board first after Bryan Little scored on the rebound in front. Benoit Pouliot was without a stick on the play, giving the Jets multiple opportunities to score on the power play before they finally did. Shots were 9-2 Winnipeg after the goal. | WPG 1, EDM 0



9:15: Aulie went back to the box, this time for interference, sending the Jets back on the PP.

6:58: Jets are unsuccessful on the power play. Shots are now 11-2 Winnipeg.

6:11: Oilers tied the game when Nail Yakupov turned on the jets skating into the Winnipeg zone, taking a feed from Derek Roy then driving to the net where he slipped the puck past Jets starting goalie Michael Hutchison to make it 1-1. | EDM 1, WPG 1



5:39: Andrew Ladd receives two minutes for hooking, sending the Oilers to their first power play of the game.

4:41: Edmonton capitalized less than a minute into that man advantage. Anton Lander picked up the puck at the top of the crease, spun and slipped it past Hutchison to give Edmonton the lead. | EDM 2, WPG 1



3:51: Luke Gazdic and Anthony Peluso dropped the gloves for an epic bout. The two threw some heavy punches with a handful landing. Like Saturday's fight with Chris Neil, neither combatant was knocked to the ground.



3:28: Eberle gets two minutes for high sticking.

3:17: The penalty is shortlived as Enstrom goes to the box only 11 seconds later.

0.0: Shots on goal after one period were 16-6 for the Jets.

SECOND PERIOD

19:01: Mark Scheifele collided with Fasth in the crease, shaking up the Oilers netminder but he stayed in the game.

12:43: Shots are now 21-9 for the Jets; 5-3 Winnipeg in the period. 

11:44: Jets pull even nearly nine minutes into the middle frame. At the left circle, Bryan Little took a feed from Ben Chiarot, paused, then wristed it past Fasth to make it 2-2. | EDM 2, WPG 2



9:47: Midway through the period, shots are 23-10.

7:14: Dustin Byfuglien blindsided Luke Gazdic with a shoulder-to-shoulder hit. Gazdic's neck snapped back after the hit and the Oilers enforcer then hit the ice.

0.0: Period two comes to an end. Shots in the frame were 12-6 for Winnipeg. Overall, the shots are 28-12 in the game.

THIRD PERIOD

20:00: The third period is now underway. 18:52: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins was sprung on a breakaway by Jeff Petry. Nugent-Hopkins used his speed to create some separation between himself and the Winnipeg defender before rifling it glove side. | EDM 3, WPG 2



16:30: Tyler Myers blasted a shot from the point that beat Fasth blocker side just above the ice to tie the game. | EDM 3, WPG 3

5:57: Fasth got clipped behind the net by Michael Frolik and received two minutes as a result. The Oilers received a late third-period power play with a chance to regain the lead.

4:46: Nail Yakupov converted a feed across the slot by Benoit Pouliot past Hutchison on the short side for the goal. | EDM 4, WPG 3
