7:55: Well if there was ever a time... Patrice Bergeron gets a high sticking penatly. PP again for the Oilers. 

6:52: After two unsuccessful attempts to gain the zone, Klefbom gets a heavy slap shot on net. 

3:24: Oilers have 24 seconds left in the power play, and a face off in the offensive zone!

0:04: Holy youknowwhat! Was that ever close. Lucic misses point blank. The game goes to OT.
