Watch: Flames, Oilers set record for fastest 4 goals in playoff history
The Battle of Alberta continued to live up to the hype.
Oilers forward Zach Hyman started the madness with just over five minutes remaining in the frame to give Edmonton its first lead of the contest.
That lead was short-lived, however, as Johnny Gaudreau responded 15 seconds later to even the score at three.
Flames forward Calle Jarnkrok kept the good times rolling with his first goal of the playoffs 16 seconds after Gaudreau.
Not to be outdone, Edmonton defenseman Evan Bouchard fired the equalizer off his stick 40 seconds later.
When the dust settled on the second period, the Flames and Oilers were tied at four.
The Battle of Alberta's four goals in 1:11 is 22 seconds quicker than the second-fastest time in playoff history.
