11:13: Edmonton's 30th consecutive penalty kill keeps it a two-goal game as we get close to the final 10 minutes of Game 1.

13:13: Perry knocks Lundell down in the corner to set up the Panthers' second power play.

15:20: Bobrovsky goes post-to-post to take away the shot from McDavid after the Panthers committed a turnover late in a shift, setting up Leon Draisaitl to feed it across the slot to the Oilers captain.

0.0: Edmonton trails 2-0 through 40 minutes, but the Oilers are all over it. They just can't find a way to beat Bob.

7:39: The power play is buzzing, but Bobrovsky is on the case as he continues to keep it out for the Panthers. Edmonton's power play drops to 0-for-3. Foegele then gets two chances on two separate rushes that are stopped in their tracks by Bobrovsky.

9:36: Janmark is the latest Oiler to be denied on a breakaway by Bobrovsky, this time with back pressure as the Swede had his low effort stopped beneath the right pad of the netminder before a scrum ensues off Connor Brown's attempt to push it over the line. Two pairs of coincidental roughing penalties are issued.

14:00: Evan Bouchard bats a puck out of mid-air that Bobrovsky stops before Adam Henrique misses a chance in front in a good response by the Oilers after giving up that second goal, but the Florida netminder is proving his worth with an 18-6 shot disadvantage for the Panthers to this point.

17:44: Panthers double the lead. After getting the kill early in the frame, where Hyman was denied in tight by the outstretched pad of Bobrovsky, Florida turns a dump-in into an open chance for Evan Rodrigues that he places over the glove of Skinner. 2-0 Panthers.

20:00: The second period is underway!


0.0: The Panthers lead 1-0 through 20 minutes on Verhaeghe's opening goal despite the Oilers leading in shots 14-4. Edmonton will have 1:51 of power-play time on the other side of the intermission to try and find an equalizer early in the middle frame.

8.8: Verhaeghe high-sticks Bouchard trying to chace down an icing. A late power play for the Oilers!

4:00: Another stellar stop by Bobrovsky on a Nugent-Hopkins power-play breakaway.
