Oilers Injury Report >>



FIRST PERIOD

20:00: The game is on in Buffalo.

19:38: Boy... That escalated quickly. Jordan Eberle finds Connor McDavid in front, he puts on a move and buries. | EDM 1, BUF 0


17:48:
Talbot covers the Sabres first shot of the night.

16:57: McDavid drives the net, turned away by Lehner.

15:11: Oilers breathe a sigh of relief. Lots of traffic out in front but the puck somehow stays out.

09:34: McDavid line has a few more good looks. There seems to be a trend forming.

00:00: McDavid line keeps Sabres hemmed in offensive zone for a very long time to close out the period. They can't capitalize on a tired Sabres group and head into the second up by one. | EDM 1, BUF 0

07:03: Oilers can't pot one on the man advantage.

00:00: Oilers score at the buzzer! (Well, .3 seconds left...) Sekera buries a rebound from Cracknell shot... Hold on though, it's being challenged... UPDATE: Offside... No goal...

00:00: A goal wiped away for offside, but Oilers still on top 1-0 heading into the third. | EDM 1, BUF 0

THIRD PERIOD

20:00: The third is underway.

19:16: Kane's wraparound attempt stopped by Talbot.

13:48: Pardy gets tripped. Oilers get the PP!

12:09: Davidson winds up but Lehner denies his heavy shot.

10:54: Cal O'Reilly pots one back door. All tied up. | EDM 1, BUF 1

04:19:
Kassian in the slot can't handle a pass in front.

00:00: Headed to OT!

OVERTIME

05:00: We are underway!
