11:32: Scrivens gets plowed over, no call by the offical. 

10:16:
Well La-De-Dah, just when the place seemed to fall silent, Jordan Eberle deflects the pass through the neutral zone to Taylor Hall. Two-on-one rush and Eberle with his first goal of the season. | EDM 1, CAR 0


4:52:
Point shot tipped in front by Riley Nash (2). And no I will not elaborate. | EDM 1, CAR 1 


3:14:
What an answer! Khudobin can't handle the point shot from Nikitin and Joensuu slaps it in. | EDM 2, CAR 1

2:02:
Jeff Skinner ties it up.  This back and fourth is harder to watch than really good ping pong |EDM 2, CAR 2

15:34:
Then Eberle (2) got his second of the game. | EDM 3, CAR 2


15:34:
At the EXACT same time as the goal the Hurricanes weren't too happy about an on ice incident and took a b-minor.

7:05:
Oh! Ya!  Leon Draisaitl is just AMPED after his first ever NHL goal! | EDM 4, CAR 3
4:10:
You just 'Nuge' he wouldn't be left out of the scoring fun.  Ryan Nugent-Hopkins from Schultz and Eberle. | EDM 5, CAR 3

Holla, Matt Hendricks. Gets some insurance by potting it in the empty net. | EDM 6, CAR 3
