Playoff history was made on Thursday. 

During a wild second period that saw the lead change multiple times, the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers combined for four goals in just 1:11 of play on Thursday, good to beat the previous playoff record for four fastest goals scored set by Philadelphia and Toronto in 1976 by 22 seconds.

Zach Hyman (14:57) started the influx of goals, only to have Johnny Gaudreau answer back at 15:12. Calle Jarnkrok scored his first of the playoffs just 16 seconds later for Calgary and Evan Bouchard capped it off for Edmonton to make it 4-4. 

Seven goals were scored in the second, with Calgary's Mikael Backlund (5:41) and Edmonton's Darnell Nurse (7:40) and Jesse Pulijuarvi (9:56) scoring before the offensive explosion.
