It was quite the game last night in Edmonton as the Oilers lead for most of the game.Their first goal scored on a power play at 18:38 into the first period, by Hemsky, assisted by Yakupov and Gagner. The Canucks gave up the second goal of the game scored at 8:08 into the second period, by Smith with Lander, while the Oilers were shorthanded on a Canucks power play!
However, the game was not over, and the Canucks proved it! A mere four minutes later J.Hansen snapped one past Dubnyk, assisted by Shroeder and Higgins. Then with less than three minutes left in the final period, Bieksa slaps the Canucks second goal home, assisted by Raymond and Hansen, sending the game into overtime. With 20 seconds left in OT, Chris Tanev scores his first goal of the season assisted by the Sedin Twins, making it 3-0 Canucks.
Way to go guys! GO CANUCKS GO!
Congratulations to Chris Tanev!
On ward and hopefully upward as the Canucks head out to play the Minnesota Wild.
