FIRST PERIOD

20:00: Tonight's game is now underway. Steve Mason was supposed to start in goal for the Flyers but Ray Emery gets the nod with Mason nowhere to be found. 19:09: And just like that, the Oilers get on the board with a goal on Emery. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins swooped in to hammer a loose puck past the Philly goaltender. | EDM 1, PHI 0



16:45: Matt Read wires a shot off the side boards, ringing it off the post behind Ben Scrivens.

13:52: The power play is shortlived as Taylor Hall gets an interference penalty only 29 seconds into the man advantage.

9:07: Oilers get caught with too many men on the ice, sending the Flyers to a full-length power play for the first time on the night.

30.8: Before the period would end, Oilers knot the game up at 3-3. Matt Hendricks picks up a rebound in front of the net and taps it past Emery for the goal. | EDM 3, PHI 3



0.0: Shots on goal after 20 minutes were even at 11-11.

SECOND PERIOD
