Tonight's game is now underway.

18:30: Joe Thornton and Tomas Hertl worked a give-and-go where Hertl's pass back to Thornton just missed the Sharks centre's stick and what would have been a tap-in.

12:27: Shots on goal were 2-1 Oilers almost eight minutes in with a lot of solid back-and-forth action.

5:17: Boyd Gordon picked up a loose puck in the slot and backhanded it five-hole through the legs of Sharks netminder Antti Niemi to open the scoring. | EDM 1, SJ 0

1:38: First penalty of the game went to the Oilers. Nail Yakupov received two for interference.

0.0: Period one comes to an end with shots even at 8-8.


Period two is now underway.

17:07: San Jose's first penalty of the game came 2:53 into the middle frame. Chris Tierney received two minutes for holding to send the Oilers on the power play.

14:09: The Sharks tie the game after killing off the penalty. Barclay Goodrow makes a quick pass from behind the Oilers net to James Sheppard in the slot and he quickly rifles it by Scrivens to make it 1-1. | EDM 1, SJ 1

12:24: San Jose took the lead for the first time in the game after Logan Couture's shot form the right circle beat Scrivens high blocker side. | SJ 2, EDM 1

11:37: Oilers very quickly tie things back up. During a wild goalmouth scramble, Steve Pinizzotto hammers the puck at the top of the crease and it finds its way along the ice past Niemi to make it 2-2. | EDM 2, SJ 2

10:01: The goals keep coming. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins gets a stick on the puck as it travels across the crease. The puck finds the back of the net to put Edmonton in front. | EDM 3, SJ 2

5:34: Oilers defenceman Oscar Klefbom heads to the box, sending the Sharks on a late-period power play.

1:05: Edmonton's line of Yakupov, Draisaitl and Pitlick have a solid shift pinning the Sharks deep in their zone with several good scoring chances.

12:00: Matt Hendricks blocks a shot and gets looked at on the bench.

11:31: Matt Tennyson flicks a wrist shot from the right circle past Scrivens for his first career NHL goal. | EDM 3, SJ 3

10:57: Barclay Goodrow got in behind the Oilers defence and despite Justin Schultz's best efforts to to catch him, backhanded a shot by Scrivens to put San Jose back in the lead only 34 seconds after the game-tying marker. | SJ 4, EDM 3

8:00: Shots on goal in the period to this point are 12-4 for San Jose.
