The Oilers step into Game 2 looking to take a 2-0 lead in the WCF

2:03: Empty-net goal for Lindell. 3-1 Stars.

3:25: Oettinger stabs at Ekholm's slapshot for the glove save, stopping Edmonton's second shot of the period. Not long after, the Dallas netminder gets the knob of his stick to another chance for the Swede in the slot after he tried to go far side.

6:33: The game begins to get stretched out as Edmonton chases the tying goal.

16:19: Dallas goal. Mason Marchment puts the deflection on Ryan Suter's shot that eludes the blocker of Stuart Skinner and goes under his right arm. 2-1 Stars.

17:18: Dallas comes close to taking the lead after the puck goes dangerously through the crease on the wrap-around from Stankoven, but isn't put away by the Stars after Skinner got a piece of it with his glove.

20:00: The third period is coming underway!


0.0: We remain tied at 1-1 through 40 minutes after Dallas carried the majority of play in that second period, but Edmonton was full value for stamping out their opportunities. Shots were 11-9 for Dallas in that frame.

13:01: Tyler Seguin is cross-checked down by Darnell Nurse and it'll be a power play for Dallas.

18:47: Wyatt Johnston beats Skinner but not the post in a near-miss for the Stars early in the second period.

20:00: The second period is underway!


0.0: Tied at 1-1 after one period. Skinner makes a lucky stop on Stankoven in the last few seconds after he misread the pass, but it's all square through 20 minutes after the Oilers outshot the Stars 16-5.

2:51: Skinner shows his sharpness with his third save by stopping a one-timer from Tyler Seguin that was delivered from across the slot from Jason Robertson.

10:19: Oettinger makes two toe saves to keep things tied – first on Zach Hyman's turn-around backhander before Evan Bouchard had his fanned shot stopped by the right toe of the Dallas netminder.

11:43: Evander Kane can't believe he didn't put away a back-door chance after Dylan Holloway tipped it into his path off the zone entry by Edmonton's second line.

15:37: CONNOR BROWN BRINGS US LEVEL! Less than a minute after Dallas took the lead, Brown tried to feed Cody Ceci on a two-on-two rush chance that's deflected on goal before the rebound popped back out to Brown to walk in and slide his first of the playoffs five-hole under Jake Oettinger. 1-1.

Brown buries the rebound on a Ceci shot to even the score at 1-1

16:21: The Stars' captain fires and scores. Jamie Benn beats the chipping Cocy Ceci to create a two-on-one that he takes himself and finishes over the right pad of Skinner. 1-0 Stars.
