The Vancouver Canucks centre is having another strong season off his Calder Trophy campaign and went into the first of a home-and-home series against the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday leading his team in scoring with 11 goals and 31 points in 26 games. "He takes the game seriously". "We played some games we defended well, but. the last couple we haven't defended as well as we'd like".

"We know we're going to play against the two best players in the world, and it's definitely a tough challenge", Eriksson said. Defenceman Matt Benning will return to the lineup after missing the past five games with a concussion, courtesy of San Jose Sharks forward Evander Kane. After trailing 2-0, J.T. Miller scored his 11 of the year at 16:42 off assists from Quinn Hughes and Bo Horvat to get back within a goal. "There are players that see that, but there aren't many that can pull it off".

"There is no doubt that's one of his best attributes, and obviously, he has an unbelievable shot and he's a complete player".

Pearson's first-period goal was the fifth shorthanded against the Oilers, tying them with Columbus and Calgary for the league high. I've harped on the play of Mike Smith who has struggled and been one of the worst goalies this year at 5 on 5. He's a good utility player.

Kassian has a suspected back injury and will miss his first game of the season.

Pettersson, 21, returned to Vancouver bigger and stronger this season and is not as vulnerable to the physicality of the National Hockey League as he was when he broke in as a skinny teenager. "I should have said no freezing", said Russell. "But they just capitalized on their opportunities on the power play".

Pettersson in undoubtedly Vancouver's most dynamic offensive player and as he goes, so do the Canucks.

Evacuation slide falls from Delta jet, lands in Milton yard
The pilot of the Boeing 767 reported a loud noise on the aircraft but had no trouble landing safely at 12.01 pm local time. Despite giving those it almost hit a shock, it isn't entirely surprising that the slide fell over Milton.

Skinner, in his rookie season with the Bakersfield Condors, has been the club's starting goalie for most of the season playing 15 games.

Acquired from the Vancouver Canucks last season, who had loaned him to the Toronto Marlies after a demotion to the AHL, Gagner was expected to begin the season on the Oilers roster out of training camp. "There were some guys that were trying to get me off my game, but it is what it is and I'm used to it". Pearson had 11 shots and a goal in the October 2 loss here and now has three goals and 15 shots in the two games against Edmonton.

"The third period was our best tonight", said Koskinen. Edmonton is the last stop on a six-game road trip.

While the Oilers were smoked 4-1 in Colorado Wednesday, the Vancouver Canucks crashed, giving up six third-period goals and tumbled 8-6 in Pittsburgh.

"Not a pretty one, but no one's going to ask how we won this game at the end of the day", said Draisaitl. "We had the game. We talked about it, learned from the video and we move on".

The win allowed the Oilers to restore their seven-point lead on the Canucks in the hyper-tight Pacific Division after Vancouver inched closer on Saturday. "Early in the year, it was all about defending and goals against", Tippett said. "I've had some good conversations with him way back to when I had him in Arizona". You want to be in that spot, you want people to key in on you, that means you're doing a lot of good things. "We did a lot of good things in that game too, but we had some breakdowns and made some mistakes that I don't think we're normally making". He's proven that every day and I think he's just going to get better and better, especially on these long road trips. "Canucks" GM Jim Benning, uncle of Matt, went out to Sherwood Park Friday night to see his other nephew Michael, a possible second round draft pick next June, playing D for the Crusaders against Camrose Kodiaks.
