FIRST PERIOD

20:00: Time to go.

19:27: Well that escalated quickly. After a 2-on-1 fail to yield results, Jordan Eberle (22) joined the rush late and scores early. | EMD 1, DAL 0




15:18: 
Ref fell, Yak gave him a hand up. Big applause from Rexall. 

13:01: Anton Lander breezes by the defender, finds Nikita Nikitin on the far side but he's robbed by Lehtonen. #soclose

9:01: 
Yakupov and Vernon Fiddler collide at centre ice. Fiddler gets the worst of it, no penalty on the pay. Incidental contact. 

8:47: Hall takes one though, tripping. PK up next.

6:00: Horcoff netted one, but refs blew down the play. He's not a happy camper. 


4:45: Not really sure where to begin, but Oilers just had four legitimate scoring chances on the Stars within 30 seconds. 

0:00: Shots 10-7 in favour of Dallas, but it sure doesn't feel that way! 

SECOND PERIOD

20:00: If you have a free moment find out about the latest prospect getting an audition with the Oilers --> HERE.

18:22: Second starts with a close call by the Stars. 

17:44: Dallas turns the puck over to Teddy Purcell in the right circle, stopped by Lehtonen. 

14:19: Seemingly for retaliation for mid-ice collision in the first, Chris MacKenzie crosschecks Nail Yakupov into the boards. Gets two.

12:09: MacKenzie is sprung from the box after penalty expires. Misses breakaway. As that's happening, Hall gets into it with Jamie Benn after hitting him. While that's going on, Nuge gets a clean break, stopped point blank.  

9:53: Learn the lingo.
8:42: Great backhand pass from Gazdic springs Fraser, Lehtonen with the stop. Scrum in front of the Stars net after. 

8:42: Fraser and Roussel are in the box for the afore mentioned scrum.

7:57: Nuge Joins Fraser to watch 4-on-3 hockey. Tripping the call.

3:07: Richard Bachman doing his darndest to keep the clean slate. 

:39: He has a point...
THIRD PERIOD

20:00: About last period...Bachman turned away 13 shots and the Oilers are a poultry 27% in the faceoff circle but up one!

17:12: Bachman stops Ales Hemsky on a breakaway. Third or forth breakaway in the game today for both teams combined. 

13:49: Remember when Hall swept Benn off his feet? <3 


10:36:
Yak lays a hit forcing a bad pass, chases down the puck and throws it in front for Derek Roy (12)! These two I tell ya. | EDM 2, DAL 0



9:27:
Not an ideal time for a penatly. Pouliot takes two for hooking. 

6:28: Hall extends his point streak getting a helper on Pouliot's (17) goal. | EDM 3, DAL 0



3:20
Edmonton Oilers have a penalty shot, Andrew Miller (1)! SCORES!!! SMILES!!! | EDM 4. DAL 0

0:00: Miller gets his first goal a game after his first point and Bachman with his first NHL shutout.
