FIRST PERIOD

20:00:The game has begun.

19:07: Less than a minute into the game, amid chants of "Go Leafs Go", the Oilers get on the board first. Benoit Pouliot takes a drop pass from Jordan Eberle and fired it on net from the left circle. The shot was redirected on its way to the net off the stick of Eric Brewer. | EDM 1, TOR 0



18:11: Matt Hendricks gets called for interference, giving the Leafs the game's first power play.

13:23: Dion Phaneuf received two for tripping, sending the Oilers on their first man advantage of the night.

12:44: The red-hot Oilers power play strikes again. Justin Schultz spots Jordan Eberle in the slot and he makes no mistake, wiring it by Jonathan Bernier to double the Edmonton lead. | EDM 2, TOR 0



11:52: Oilers extend their lead to 3-0 only 52 seconds later. Pouliot netted his second of the game, converting a feed from Nail Yakupov. | EDM 3, TOR 0



11:52: Bernier is chased from the game after allowing three goals on four shots. He is replaced by James Reimer.

10:14: Tempers flare on both sides after the whistle as a skirmish erupts in the corner of the Toronto zone. The result was a single roughing penalty to Eric Brewer.

9:01: Anton Lander made the Oilers two-for-two on the man advantage. After converting a feed across the crease, he quickly converted it past Reimer as the onslaught continued. | EDM 4, TOR 0



7:23: Lander receives two for unsportsmanlike conduct to send Toronto back on the PP.

6:33: James van Riemsdyk's shot beat Scrivens to get the Leafs on the board with a power play marker. | EDM 4, TOR 1



4:42: Shots on goal are 11-5 for Edmonton with less than five minutes to play in the third.

0.0: Shots on goal after one were 14-8 for the home team.

SECOND PERIOD

20:00: Period two starts now.

13:57: Shots in the middle frame are 2-2 six minutes in. 12:49: Oilers get penalized for having too many men on the ice, giving the Leafs their first power play chance of the period.

6:41: Reimer extended out his right pad to make an unbelievable stop on Derek Roy after it looked like the Oilers pivot had a wide open side of the net to score.

6:17: Aulie cross-checked Leo Komarov and was sent to the bin for two minutes as a result.

4:23: Late in the penalty kill, Scrivens got caught behind the Oilers net but managed to recover in time to make a save on Nazem Kadri's wraparound attempt.

0.0: Shots in period two were 13-8 for the Leafs. Overall in the game, shots are 22-21.
THIRD PERIOD

20:00: The third period is now underway.

17:00: Toronto fires off the first three shots of the period. 9:02: Fraser gets blindsided behind the Toronto net by Nazem Kadri -- an elbow to the head -- and has to be helped off the ice. Kadri receives a two-minute penalty for hit to the head.

6:57: After the penalty ended, Yakupov chased down Richard Panik. He slid to knock the puck away from Panik but also toppled the Leafs forward at the same time. Leafs returned to the power play.

5:34: Andrew Ference crunched Kadri into the boards from behind in a little bit of payback. 3:49: Another Edmonton power play after Tyler Bozak got two for tripping, two for unsportsmanlike, 10 and a game misconduct.

0.0: Final shot count at the end of the game was 32-29 for Edmonton.
