Oilers Injury Report >>



FIRST PERIOD

20:00: Tonight's game is now underway

18:09: A penalty to Winnipeg's Chris Thorburn resulted in Edmonton getting the first power play of the game.

16:09: The Jets killed off the penalty. During the two-minute minor both Edmonton and Winnipeg had a couple of five-star scoring chances. Goaltenders Cam Talbot for the Oilers and Connor Hellebuyck for the Jets stood tall.  12:36: Nikita Nikitin headed to the box, giving the Jets their first man advantage of the evening.

10:36: Oilers kill that one off. Shots in the game are 4-4.

8:45: Teddy Purcell's shot from the right side boards founds its way through a screen and off the stick of Mark Stuart past Hellebuyck to give Edmonton the lead. | EDM 1, WPG 0



7:01: Purcell scored again 1:44 later. He wound up and blasted a shot from the left circle off the bar and in after a great cross-ice pass from Draisaitl. | EDM 2, WPG 0



5:01: Before the whistle, linesman Devin Berg got in the way of a Nikita Nikitin hit on Mark Scheifele and gets treatment during the TV timeout. 3:25: Shots are now 11-7 for Edmonton.

0.0: A late surge by the Jets resulted in Winnipeg outshooting Edmonton through the first 20 minutes 12-11 but Talbot made some big stops to keep the Oilers ahead by a pair.

SECOND PERIOD

20:00: Period two has begun.

12:47: Darnell Nurse went  down to block a shot and did just that but looked like he hurt himself in the process. He skated gingerly to the bench and was tended to by trainer T.D. Forss.

12:16: Edmonton took a 3-0 lead when Justin Schultz pinched down to quickly convert a pass from Teddy Purcell. Hall got the other assist for his third point of the night. | EDM 3, WPG 0



12:16: After the goal, Hellebuyck was replaced in goal by Michael Hutchinson.

10:42: Nurse returned to the ice.

9:34: Hall received two minutes for hooking, giving Winnipeg a power play opportunity to get back in the game.

7:33: Just as the penalty expired, Blake Wheeler ripped a shot from the top of the left circle that went wide but the rebound bounced off the end boards and in front where Bryan Little batted it out of mid-air in past Cam Talbot. | EDM 3, WPG 1



5:36: Talbot stuck out his glove to absolutely rob Drew Stafford.

3:59: Nikitin took Scheifele into the boards and received two minutes. Scheifele also received two, him for unsportsmanlike.

3:32: Eberle wired a shot from the slot that rang off the post behind Hutchinson.

3:21: The Oilers took a bench minor for having too many men on the ice, setting up an extended four-on-three power play for Winnipeg.

0.0: Jets outshot the Oilers 17-7 in the second period. Overall in the game, shots were 29-18.

THIRD PERIOD

20:00: The third period is now underway.

18:55: Andrew Ladd ran some interference on Cam Talbot, giving Edmonton an early third-period power play to try and quell some of the momentum that Winnipeg has built up.

16:02: Anton Lander was sent off for hooking, putting Winnipeg back on the power play.

10:13: Shots on goal were 36-20 for Winnipeg near the midway point of the third.

7:39: Talbot makes a couple more spectacular saves, keeping it a two-goal gap. Shots now 39-20 for Winnipeg.

6:06: The Jets go back to the power play. Purcell hooked Mathieu Perreault in the corner of the Oilers zone.

2:38: Winnipeg pulls their goaltender. Shots are 41-21 for the visitors.

0.0: Oilers hold on to win this one! Talbot makes 43 saves on 45 shots against.
