20:00:
 Game about to start, but first, a Pat Quinn tribute here at Rexall and a moment of silence.

14:44: David Perron gets a clean look alone in front, can't capitalize. 

14:44: Zbynek Michalek two minutes for roughing. Aka pulling Perron down after his shot. 

14:23: Eberle (5) gets the Oilers on the board with a PP goal. | EDM 1, ARI 0

11:45:
Gazdic and Crombeen get into it.  Rd. 1 Gaz.

4:25: Shots just 5-3 nearing the end of the first.

2:34: Oilers already got a PPG tonight, can they make it another.  Two minutes for kneeing for Vermette.

0:10: Fasth gobbles up the rebound AND Shane Doan gets a roughing penalty.
