They just dropped that round thing at centre court.  The Match is underway.  Playball. 

18:42: Some good news early on, the Oilers get to play with an extra man because Derek Dorsett decided to play hooky. 

11:57: Joensuu, Gordon, Hendricks with another solid shift.  10:45: Yakupov nearly notches one.  Shots 5-4 for Oilers, thats five good shots. 

7:43: Ouch Charlie, that really hurts.  Perron goes into the net hard while going for goal. 

6:43: Oilers not liking the Canucks continuing to dig at Scrivens after the whistle. 

0.37: Edmonton will start the second period on the power play unless... 37 seconds left.  Kassian takes a seat. 

0.0: Shots 10-12 in favour of Vancouver after 20 minutes.  Still scoreless. 


 Second period has begun! 

18:50: A sliding Justin Schultz breaks up the Vancouver rush, then Oilers with a shot in transition. 

18:37: Marc Arcobello in the box, Oilers about to work the PK. 

17:25: NUGE with back-to-back chances in close. 

12:29: Hello Hendy! Matt Hendricks stopped on the doorstep as Oilers even up the shot count at 16 a piece. 

10:44: Ben Scrivens, what a save!

10:22: Scary moment on the ice, Arcobello's stick hits Hamhuis square in the face.  Bleeding, he leaves the ice for medical treatment. 

8:34: And then there was one... one twin available to play as H.Sedin goes to the box for cross checking. 

6:35: Joensuu asks Kevin Bieksa what flavour of Gatorade they have on the Canucks bench today... or something like that.  That 4th line tho!

5:03:  Oilers time out. Strategy session by the bench 4:11: First goal of the game, Radim Vrbata (3), the Sedin's with the assists. | EDM 0, VAN 1

The third melee behind the Oilers net this game. This time the Canucks trying to get at Petry.  He’s called for boarding on Dorsett 

2:21: Hamhuis returns to the game, full cage and I'm pretty sure it's chrome. 

1:26: Well that return was short lived, 
Hamhuis is promptly sent to the bench on the opposite side of the ice for delay of game.  
0.0: Heads up Oil country, it's just one goal game! 


 Heading into the final frame the shots are 27-21 in favour of the Canucks but Oilers with the physical edge as hits are 17-11. 

19:11: Let's do this!

15:03: Three quick shots from the Oilers.  Draisaitl, Perron and Pouliot putting on the pressure. 

9:53:  Jesse Joensuu is going to be upset about this one.  Two for high sticking.  He skates to the box while the crowd has this reaction about the call:

7:32: Holy Cannoli! Joensuu burst out of the box and leads the rush, Oilers so close to the tying marker. 

1:25: Oilers 6-on-5 set up Hall at the top of the circle. Great look.  

0:46: <--- time remaining! 

0:14: Vancouver find the back of the empty net. | EDM 0, VAN 2
