FIRST PERIOD

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

17:12: Connor McDavid feeds the puck to Patrick Maroon off the rush but Maroon can't quite get a handle on the feed as it skips off his stick. 15:00: Five minutes into the game, the glass needs to be fixed. It's a good thing for the Oilers as the Avalanche have taken the only six shots on goal in the game so far.

9:08: McDavid spotted Nurse off the rush in the slot with a nice pass, catching Avs goaltender Calvin Pickard off guard. However, Nurse missed the net on his shot attempt. 5:04: Maroon had a wide-open net but couldn't get a handle on the puck as he attempted to whack it in.

4:31: Mikko Rantanen grabs a hold of Nugent-Hopkins' stick and hauls the Oilers pivot down. Result is the Oilers getting the game's first power play.

0.0: Shots are 12-8 Avalanche after 20 minutes of play.
