FIRST PERIOD

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

15:27: The first penalty of the game goes to Benoit Pouliot for hooking Oliver Ekman-Larsson in the offensive zone.

13:04: Only 23 seconds after the penalty expired, Arizona struck for the game's first goal. Steve Downie took a pass from Jordan Martinook in the corner of the Oilers zone and quickly tapped it in past Talbot. | ARI 1, EDM 0



12:05: 59 seconds later, the Oilers got that goal back. Taylor Hall converted a no-look backhand pass from Leon Draisaitl in the corner of the Coyotes zone past Louis Domingue. | EDM 1, ARI 1



8:40: Shots on goal are 7-3 for Arizona. Coyotes get a penalty for hooking, on Nicklas Grossmann, sending Edmonton on its first power play of the day.

8:21: Only 19 seconds into the man advantage, Edmonton converted to take the lead. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins' cross-ice pass was intercepted in the slot but the puck rebounded to Mark Letestu who fed it over to Jordan Eberle for a quick shot past Domingue and a goal. | EDM 2, ARI 1



6:14: Pouliot's second penalty of the game was for interference, sending Arizona back on the PP.

4:14: Oilers kill off that penalty.

1:21: Eric Gryba takes a high-sticking penalty, resulting in the third power play of the period for Arizona.

0.0: After one, Oilers had a 2-1 lead but were outshot 12-10 by the Coyotes.

13:06: Shots in the game are 15-14 for Arizona.

11:03: Laurent Dauphin received two minutes for essentially punching Lauri Korpikoski in the face while in the Oilers zone. Result is an Edmonton power play.

5:30: Coyotes got the game back on even terms as Brad Richardson hammered the puck in past Talbot during a scramble in front of the net. | EDM 2, ARI 2

THIRD PERIOD

20:00: Period three is now underway.

17:05: Steve Downie received a penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct early in the period.

14:09: Coyotes struck to take the lead 5:51 into the third. Max Domi and Anthony Duclair skated in on a two-on-one where Domi fed the puck over to Duclair. His one-timer ripped past Talbot for the 3-2 lead. | ARI 3, EDM 2



12:30: Shots are now 28-26 for the visitors.

6:16: Domingue makes a nice glove save, robbing Pouliot after a nice no-look feed from Eberle goes right on the stick of Pouliot to the right side of the net.

5:52: Edmonton finally did tie the game up only 24 seconds later as Eberle made a very nice move in front before backhanding the puck in after receiving a great pass from Nugent-Hopkins. | EDM 3, ARI 3



5:08: Shots on goal are now 35-31 for Edmonton.

4:28: Coyotes get a penalty for having too many men on the ice, giving the Oilers a power play opportunity to win the game in regulation.

1:30: Coyotes killed off the penalty despite a couple of great chances by the Oilers. Shots on goal are now 38-31 for Edmonton.

48.5: Pouliot and Stone each receive two minutes for roughing to create some late four-on-four. 

0.0: Final shot count after 60 minutes was 38-31 for Edmonton; 16-9 in period three.

3-ON-3 OVERTIME

5:00: Overtime is now underway.

3:55: Hall's shot goes off the stick of Domingue and sends the Coyotes goaltender's stick flying.

3:22: With Domingue still without a stick, Nugent-Hopkins rushes up ice and his backhand attempt rings off the post.

2:00: Schultz takes a feed from Hall and very nearly converts, but can't quite get enough on the shot all alone in front.

0.0: 65 minutes are in the books. Shot count 41-34 for the Oilers.
