FIRST PERIOD

20:00: Tonight's game will start at 5:12 p.m. MST.

19:29: Game underway and Derek Roy is already in the box! Hooking

19:15: And then... The Ducks make 'em pay. Right off the draw the puck goes to Francois Beauchemin and he scores. | EDM 0, ANA 1




17:08:
Tit-for-tat! Slashing called on Nate Thompson. Oilers on the PK. 

16:40: Ben I-love-to-steal-your-joy robs a perfect oppurtunity from the Oilers. 

15:47: A less than ideal power play for the Oilers. Besides the aforementioned chance, play exclusively in Oilers and neutral zones. 

9:56:  Rob Klinkhammer tries the good ole wrap around. No luck. 

9:37: It's been a laborious stretch for the Oilers.
6:20: 
After taking several minutes to register a shot the Oilers now have six to Anaheim’s seven.  


2:20:
Stay classy, Edmonton. 1:06: Yet again Oilers second line of Purcell-Roy-Yakupov has showed up. 

0:00: Strong backchecking effort from Roy to end the period and the Oilers get out of the first down one. 

SECOND PERIOD

INTERMISSION ENTERTAINMENT ---> WATCH

20:00: Hendricks heavy on the boards tonight. Four hits in 4:49 TOT

19:32: The Oilers connected early in the second period. 28 seconds in, Nail Yakupov made a great backhand pass across the crease to Teddy Purcell who put the puck past Gibson to tie the game up. | EDM 1, ANA 1




 13:17: It's amazing how much faster Luke Gazdic is without his signature locks flowing out of the back of his helmet. 

10:2: Ugh! Pouliot with a chance in front after a turnover and then RNH rings one off the post.  Oilers feeling it right now. 
0:00: Through one, the Oilers and Ducks are tied up at one. After the first RNH had a 83% success rate in the circle. 

THIRD PERIOD

INTERMISSION ENTERTAINMENT ---> WATCH 

20:00:
Final frame coming up.  New plan, keep the puck away from Ben Lovejoy, he has five blocks so far.

18:15:
Seemingly harmless possession by the Ducks in the Oilers end... seemingly. 

15:01:
High shot by Andrew Ference gloved down by John Gibson. 

14:13:
Everytime Yakupov gets the puck down the right side, OIlers fans jump to the edge of their seats. 

7:!3:
Unlucky number seven minutes left in the third and Ryan Getzlaf gets credit. The puck seeped out from under Scrivens' glove. | EDM 1, ANA 2 


5:26: Time for a power play from someone. The Oilers go up one, Thompson in the box for tripping. 

4:10: Tension on the ice. Prucell and Silfverberg with some stick work in front of Gibson.

0:07: In the last two minutes Nail Yakupov has had two great chances and nearly set up the game tying goal! This kid. 

0:00: Lost the draw and didn't get any Wolf of Wall Street chest pound montage. Final score 2-1 Ducks. Ice cream time.
