FIRST PERIOD

20:00: Tonight's game is now underway.

19:24: Taylor Hall got in behind the Devils defence on the first shift of the game, but his deke attempt was kicked away by Cory Schneider's right pad.



12:41: The Oilers were denied on another breakaway attempt about seven minutes later. After stripping a Devils player of the puck, McDavid skated in all alone but his shot rang off the post behind the Devils netminder.

10:42: The first power play of the game went to the Devils after Matt Hendricks took a hooking penalty.

9:27: With 46 seconds left in the Hendricks penalty, New Jersey converted. Reid Boucher's shot was stopped in front by Cam Talbot but Adam Henrique was at the doorstep to lift the rebound over the Oilers goaltender. | NJ 1, EDM 0



8:21: Oilers got that goal back just over a minute later. McDavid made a nice quick backhand pass over to Benoit Pouliot who dished it to Jordan Eberle for a quick tap-in and tie game. | EDM 1, NJ 1



5:50: A penalty to Seth Helgeson gave Edmonton its first power play of the night.

3:49: Devils killed that one off, but a penalty to Lee Stempniak on the tail end of that New Jersey kill resulted in another Oilers power play.

7.9: Taylor Hall cleared the puck over the glass late in the period, receiving two minutes for delay of game.

0.0: Shots on goal after one were 7-6 for Edmonton.

SECOND PERIOD

20:00: Second period starts now. Oilers have to kill off 1:53 of the Hall penalty to start things off.

17:55: Coming out of the box, Hall picked up the puck and skated in on a two-on-one with Letestu. He dished the puck over to Letestu who had two cracks at it, but Schneider came up big both times.

10:00: At the exact midway point, Matt Hendricks and Seth Helgeson dropped the gloves at centre ice. It was a spirited bout with plenty of punches landed but no clear victor.

7:58: Shots on goal were even at 11-11 with just under eight minutes to go in the second.

4:41: Jordan Eberle gets sent to the box, giving the Devils a chance to take the lead on the PP with under five minutes to play in the second.

16.1: With 16 seconds to go in the period, Andy Greene took a penalty for high sticking to give Edmonton a late man advantage.

0.0: Shots after two periods were 17-12 for New Jersey.

THIRD PERIOD

20:00: Period three opens with Oilers on the power play for another 1:44.

17:42: Devils killed off the penalty with Oilers unable to even register a shot.

14:33: Clendening cleared the puck out of the rink from his own zone, resulting in New Jersey heading to the power play.

13:42: Jacob Josefson had a wide open net but the puck skipped over his stick, keeping the game tied.

12:47: With 14 seconds remaining in the penalty, the Devils finally found the net. Boucher's shot from the right circle beat Talbot glove side for the goal. The goal was the first shot of the period for either side. | NJ 2, EDM 1



11:04: Edmonton's penalty killers went back to work. Hall was sent off for slashing.

5:05: With five minutes to go, shots were 23-16 for New Jersey.

1:50: Hall and Draisiatl have a flurry of chances in front of the Devils net but can't convert. Oilers call their 30-second timeout and then pull Cam Talbot for the extra attacker. 

0.0: Oilers run out of time. Final shot count 26-20 for New Jersey.
