20:00: Batter up! Games about to start ya'll.

18:25: Nail with a little knock to Derek Roy, as the play goes under review. Nashville thinks they've scored, the refs first instinct was to wave it off.  Trust your gut guys.

18:25: Told ya so! No goal.   Faceoff in the Oilers end.

15:30: Ring-a-ding-ding! Nashville hits the post. Coming awfully close on that one.

6:37: Well it's been anything but a humdinger, Preds pelting Scrivens with shots.  10-3 in favour of Nashville.

6:28: For the record, last season the Oilers won all three contests against the Predators by a combined score of 8-1.

0.0: Welp, that's over now time to regroup before the second. Preds 11 shots to the Oilers three.  Ben's been busy.

INTERMISSION ENTERTAINMENT: Every week we catch-up with players in the Oilers System, wtch it HERE!


20:00: Time to tango.  Second period has begun.

19:41: Second starts just as the first.  Play under review as Nuge goes bar-down and out. No goal.

13:37:  Craig Smith (2)  snaps the loose puck past Scrivnes.  Rebound came off Roman Josi's initial shot. | EDM 0, NSH 1

12:11: Colin Wilson finds Taylor Beck (3) back door, doubling up for the Preds. | EDM 0, NSH 2

10:18: Spoiler alert: The Giants JUST won the World Series.

8:15: Yak with a solid shot on Rinne, who can't find the puck right away.

2:59: Delayed penalty, the oilers add to their shot count before Eric Nystrom is escorted to the box for hooking. The Oilers have five power play goals this season.

0.0: Easy does it in the second.  The Oilers close the gap energy wise but need to find two scores before the final buzzer.


20:00: Kit-Kat Break!

19:36: Back and in no time a blistering shot from Shea Webber make it a trifecta for the Preds. | EDM 0, NSH 3

13:50: Tayor Hall just got knocked off his feet, big open ice hit by Ryan Ellis.

13:47:  Seth Jones, two minutes for interference.

12:47: Oilers take the lead, in shots for 25-24.  One minute on the PP remaining.

11:06: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins rebound goes right to Taylor Hall (6) who makes no mistake. Second assist goes to Jordan Eberle. Oilers within 2 now. | EDM 1, NSH 3

7:36: Two-on-one started by by Matt Cullen, finished by Craig Smith (3). | EMD 1, NSH 4

2:16: Two minute warning (sort of).  Andrew Ference will essentially end the game in the sin bin for hooking.

0.0:  That'll do it. Oilers streak ends at four games.  Up next Vancouver visits Rexall on Saturday.
