FIRST PERIOD

PRE GAME: Beautiful tribute for Cst. Wynn. Even better moment when his kids participate in the ceremonial puck drop.  




20:00: Ready, go! Back from the All-Star break and the Oilers are taking on the Wild. Things should get... wild?! Sorry.

16:23:
Oilers are going to get a chance on the PP early in the game. Mikael Granlund, two for delay of game. 
 
12:16: I mean, it's been a bit slow so far. Vacation legs for a lot of the players I'm sure. Shots 2-1 for the Oilers. 



10:49: Nino Niederreiter (15) jumps on the loose puck in front of the net. Top corner, glove side on Fasth.| EDM 0, MIN 1


10:10: The Oilers have been pretty consistent with answering goals the last little while. PP again to try and even the game at one. 

7:45: A little bit of fire from the Oilers in front of Fasth: 



7:27: Parise squirting blood all over the ice. Heads to the locker room, presumably for minor surgery. Thinking he'll BRB. 

1:26: Klink clanks into Matt Cooke. Some would call it a knee-on-knee hit, I'm more inclined to say it was an accident. The officials say it was tripping.  

0:00: Oilers to start the second on the PK. 

SECOND PERIOD

WHILE YOU WAIT: Intermission Entertinment HERE.

17:24: Hey @SunTrevorRobb, can you never request that song again. Thanks #Oilerstunes

15:25: Benoit Pouliot gets the first good chance this period for the Oilers. Slapper from close range is stopped by Dubnyk.

14:15: Petry just rocks Granlund, who's just returning from injury. 




9:40: Justin Schultz gets past the defence and is robbed by a falling Dubnyk!

7:25: Fun fact, Mark Fayne is wearing the econd 'A' tonight, since Hall is out.  


2:44: Boyd Gordon (6) goes for the 'old fashioned', puck hits Kyle Brodziak's skate and goes in. | EDM 1, MIN 1


0:00:
Tied up after two. Oilers looking for their third straight win for the first time since a four game streak, October 20-27.

THIRD PERIOD

WHILE YOU WAIT: Intermission Entertinment HERE.

20:00:
Mikko Koivu lost four of five second period faceoffs, dropping his FO% to 64% from 89%.
ICYMI: Wonderful moment at the beginning of tonights game. 



18:25: Dubnyk miss plays the puck off the end boards.  It swims around in the crease but doesn't find the back of the net. 

17:26: Brief stoppage in play, as Yak tags Prosser behind. He goes down but seems fine. 
13:14: Jeff Petry adds to his 22 penatly minutes. Holding. Second PK for the Wild. 

9:10: UGH! 2-on-1 rush and Oilers' Purcell can't get a shot on net. Shortly after Pouliot gets sprung and misfires. 

5:45: Tonight Dubnyk be like: 



4:23: Very nice, Charlie Coyle. | EDM 1, MIN 2


4:00:
Oilers rally call: 



1:22:
Oilers get the chance to tie it up. 6-on-4 for the remainder of the game. Ryan Suter sits in the box to watch. 

:12:
Double minors to Yakupov and Prosser. Final chance to tie the game, the draw is in Minnesota's end.
