FIRST PERIOD

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

17:25: Through the first 2:35, neither team had registered a shot on goal.

15:03: The first penalty of the game went to Nick Ritchie after holding Nail Yakupov high in the Anaheim zone. Edmonton went on their first power play of the night.

2:15: Talbot slid across to make a nice pad save off a one-timer by David Perron.

1:23: Benoit Pouliot received two minutes for slashing the stick out of Kesler's hands.

50.0: Talbot stopped the initial shot but David Perron crashed the net and the puck slid across the goal line. The goal was reviewed twice. First, by Toronto to determine that the puck wasn't kicked in. The ruling there was that it was not kicked in. Then it was announced that the Oilers issued a coach's challenge, citing goaltender interference. That was also confirmed as a goal. | ANA 1, EDM 0



0.0: Shots after one period were 9-8 for Edmonton.
