10:52: Eric Gryba cleared the puck over the glass from his own zone near the midway point of the opening period, giving Anaheim the game's first power play.

4:25: Shots on goal past the 15-minute mark of the game was 13-4 in favour of the Ducks.

38.0: Nilsson made a big save off Rickard Rackell from point-blank range with traffic in front to keep it a one-goal game.

0.0: Shots on goal after 20 minutes ended up 15-8 for the Ducks.

SECOND PERIOD

20:00: Period two is now underway.

18:07: Anaheim nearly doubled their lead two minutes into the second. After Nilsson made a stop, the puck trickled past him and laid unguarded in the crease. Mark Fayne managed to shovel the puck under his goaltender and out of harm's way.

17:31: Hampus Lindholm ran some interference on Draisaitl at the side of the Ducks net, resulting in Edmonton's first power play of the game.

15:37: With six seconds left in the power play, Draisaitl wired a one-timer from the right circle that found its way past Andersen on the glove side to get the game back on even terms at 1-1. | EDM 1, ANA 1



12:59: Shots are now 18-12 for Anaheim.

9:52: Hall got in behind the Ducks defence and broke in alone on Andersen but his shot went over the net. 5:00: With five minutes to go in the second, the game remained tied 1-1 with Anaheim holding a 20-14 edge in shots.

3:34: On the rush, Hall's initial shot was denied by Andersen and the Ducks goaltender then extended out his left toe to make another big save. Andersen got shaken up on the play.

3:07: Pakarinen got rocked by Maroon in the Oilers zone and Gazdic then dropped his gloves to go after the Ducks forward. The bout lasted quite awhile but there was no clear victor. The result of the sequence of events was an Oilers power play after Maroon received two minutes for boarding.

2:07: Yakupov turned the puck over in the neutral zone, resulting in a breakaway opportunity for Josh Manson. Manson tried to backhand deke it past Nilsson but the Oilers goaltender was right there with a big stop.

0.0: Shots in the second were 10-6 for the Oilers. Through 40 minutes, Anaheim had a 21-18 lead on the shot clock.

THIRD PERIOD

20:00: Period three is now underway.

18:04: Anaheim moved back in front only 1:56 into the third. Cam Fowler skated in behind the Oilers net before feeding Shawn Horcoff at the right post. The former Oilers captain quickly chipped the puck past Nilsson. The goal was Horcoff's 500th career NHL point. | ANA 2, EDM 1



14:22: Oilers get back on even terms less than four minutes later. Klefbom's blast from the left point found its way into the back of the net. | EDM 2, ANA 2



13:55: Nilsson makes a nice glove grab through traffic on Vatanen.

13:16: Corey Perry corralled the puck in the slot, took his time and then backhanded it in over the blocker of Nilsson to put Anaheim back in the lead only 1:06 after Edmonton tied it. | ANA 3, EDM 2



11:41: The onslaught of goals continued. From behind the net, Hall found a way to get the puck to Nugent-Hopkins in front and he managed to get the puck to his forehand before snapping it past Andersen. The goal was the third in 2:19 and fourth in 6:23 as the game really took an offensive turn. | EDM 3, ANA 3
