FIRST PERIOD

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

19:02: Flames starting goaltender Kari Ramo was injured and replaced in net by Jonas Hiller only 58 seconds into the game.

18:01: Calgary got on the board first after a couple of scoring chances were denied by Hiller. The play went back down the ice where Joe Colborne was stationed in the crease of Ben Scrivens and swept the puck over the goal line after a scramble in front. After a brief video review, it was ruled a good goal. | CGY 1, EDM 0



14:00: Taylor Hall wires a shot off the post behind Hiller. 8:02: Oilers carry most of the play after the Calgary goal, outshooting the Flames 8-5 in the period through the first 12 minutes of the opening frame.

0.0: Shots after 20 minutes were 11-8 for the Oilers but Calgary had a one-goal lead.

SECOND PERIOD

20:00: Period two has now begun.

14:30: Shots are 12-11 for the Oilers just past the five-minute mark of period two.

8:36: Josh Jooris took advantage of a Taylor Hall turnover and broke in alone on Scrivens. His shot was gloved by the Oilers netminder to keep it a one-goal game.



6:00: Scrivens somehow manages to keep the puck out of the net after a quick three-way passing play between Johnny Gaudreau, Jiri Hudler and Sean Monahan ends with Monahan somehow getting denied on what looked like a wide-open net opportunity.



2:04: Calgary finally managed to double their lead. Mikael Granlund corralled a pass across the crease from Jooris, got a handle on the puck and then roofed it over a sprawled Scrivens for the marker. | CGY 2, EDM 0



0.0: Final shot count in the second period was 11-6 for Calgary. Overall in the game, 19-17 for the Flames.

THIRD PERIOD

20:00: The third period is now underway. 17:50: The first penalty of the game went to Keith Aulie, who received two minutes for cross-checking Colborne. This put the Flames on the power play.

17:44: Only six seconds into the man advantage, Dennis Wideman blasted his 15th goal of the season by Scrivens to make it a three-goal game. | CGY 3, EDM 0



10:05: Near the midway point of period three, Shots were 9-3 for Calgary; 28-20 in the game overall for the visitors.

8:35: Hiller stuck out his left pad to make a nice save on Taylor Hall as the Oilers forward tried to jam the puck in after a wild hop.

8:15: Flames call their 30-second timeout.

1:08: Granlund scored his second of the game to extend Calgary's lead to 4-0. | CGY 4, EDM 0
