FIRST PERIOD

20:00: Welcome back, Bill Ranford. Once an Oiler, Always an Oiler!

19:11: Ben Scrivens gets bowled over. Ouch.

17:48: Holding out collective breath as Iiro Pakarinen is laying on the ice in pain.  Looks to be a knee injury.

17:47: Pakarinen puts no weight on his left knee as he leaves the ice with assistance.

15:27: Solid shift by the Oilers top line. Maintaining puck possession in the offensive zone for upwards of a minute.

11:13: Scrivens makes a great pad save on Dmitrij Jaskin at point blank range. Smothers the rebound ASAP (Rocky).

7:49: Jaskin (10) slaps one under Scrivens' glove to open the scoring and putting the Blues up. | EDM 0, STL 1



5:04: Blues weather the storm early and have the lead in shots 7-2 now.

0:00: Re-grouping time..

SECOND PERIOD

20:00: INTERMISSION ENTERTAINMENT ---> WATCH 

19:50: Back to business, not much to report except for Matt Hendricks' four hits and Pakarinen has yet to return.

15:00: Two chances in front of Brian Elliott both resulting in saves and skirmishes.

13:29: Justin 'Money' Schultz (5) takes the drop pass from Jordan Eberle and snaps it home to tie. Also, I'm aware 'Money' probably won't stick.  | EDM 1, STL 1  




3:11: *wipes brow* *sighs in relief* A series of dangerous plays by the Blues.

0:09: A trio of backdoor passes nearly burned the Oilers. Get out of this period knotted at ones.

THIRD PERIOD

20:00: INTERMISSION ENTERTAINMENT ---> WATCH 

17:46: i don't want to jinx it but there have been zero penalties given out so far in this game. #squeekyclean

15:01: Nuge to Eberle and ROBBED by Elliot. Just stoned. Denied. You get it.

14:46: Knew I shouldn't have said anything. Martin Marincin for holding.

13:42: Srivens continues to impress. Kicking out his right pad like he had a leg crap to deny Lehtera.

11:52: Derek Roy, hooking. PK again. Last time they came out unscathed.

10:04: The definition of feelin' it. Scrivens with another huge save, glove this time, on Paul Stastny.


5:40:
After making a series of very strong saves, Stastny slides one in. | EDM 1, STL 2



1:39:
Timeout. Scrivens is still between the pipes.

1:06: Timeout round two. Oilers generated a ot of pressure last time. Gordon-Pouliot-Yakupov-Nuge-Purcell-Ebs on.

:53: Stastny in the box! 6-on-4.

0:00: No dice. Eberle got a last second chance but had more time than he though to get it off.
