Colin McDonald and Matt Donovan go back in the lineup tonight for the Islanders. Eric Boulton, Matt Carkner and Brock Nelson are scratched.
4:15: Taylor Hall just had space on a breakaway up the middle, but lost the puck off his stick, allowing Evgeni Nabokov to kick the puck away without a problem. Shots: NYI 3 EDM 2.
9:59: Josh Bailey's one-timer from just outside the crease puts the Islanders up 1-0. Travis Hamonic skated down below the goal line and dished to Bailey, who was untouched and converted his third goal of the season. Pierre-Marc Bouchard got the second assist on the play.
10:37: Ales Hemsky gets called for hooking on Matt Martin, and the Isles will quickly go on the first power play of the game.
12:55: Power play comes to an end. The first 1:20 wasn't especially exciting, but the Islanders finished with momentum, keeping the puck in the Oilers zone for a while following the resumption of 5-on-5 play. Shots: NYI 10 EDM 3.
15:52: Nice movement by the Oilers results in a tie game. Hall took a pass from Justin Schultz across the slot on the left side and beat Nabokov, who couldn't get back in position. Tie game, 1-1.

7:08: Okposo goes off for tripping in the Edmonton zone, and the visitors will go to their second man advantage of the night.
9:10: Nabokov makes two big saves (one on Nail Yakupov, one on Justin Schultz) to keep the Oilers off the board.

16:30: Islanders have killed three penalties in a row over the last six or seven minutes. Shots: NYI 24 EDM 19.
18:53: Tavares makes it 3-2 with his fourth of the year. Okposo found him from below the goal line and the captain stepped into the shot, aiming top shelf.
