After an entertaining opening period, the Dallas Stars and Edmonton Oilers are tied 2-2 in Game 4 of the Western Conference Final from Rogers Place.

Dallas extended their lead almost five minutes later when Logan Stankoven netted his fourth goal of the playoffs. 

The Oilers cut the Stars' lead in half when Corey Perry and Darnell Nurse assisted on Ryan McLeod's first of the playoffs at the 13:30 mark. Perry is playing his first game of the series while McLeod watched Game 3 in the press box.

Oilers defenceman Nurse was on the ice for both goals against in the opening period.
