17:33: Jeff Carter (21) from Tyler Toffoli. A SH goal for the Kings. | EDM 0, LAK 3

13:32: Well Jarret Stoll heads to the box and the fans are doing the wave. One of these is a good sign. 

11:14: Hendricks with a frustration penalty. Slashing as the Oilers go on the defensive.  

6:42: Alrighty than! Oilers get on the board. Luke Gazdic (2) tips in the Oesterle shot. Oesterle with his first career NHL point. | EDM 1, LAK 3

 Some signs of life here at Rexall. First Yakupov getting the crowd aroused and then a nice passing play involving four Oilers ending with Schultz ticking the puck on goal. 

3:01: Spoke too soon. Clifford (4) pots the big rebound. | EDM 1, LAK 4

6:42: Ryan Hamilton, tripping. 

3:47: Derek Roy narrowly misses the net, trailing on the Eberle offering. 

3:30: Mash-up time. Oesterle takes the point with Schultz.  

1:00: Last minute of play before the Oilers head out on a five game roadie.  

:31: Tripping again called by the refs, Trevor Lewis in the box to end the game. 

0:00: Oilers off for what won't be an easy task: Chicago, Carolina, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Columbus.
