"Can anyone up there help us score? God? Anyone?"


The Oilers got all 3 goals on the powerplay, and won the game in OT with Matt Cooke (who took a double-minor penalty late in the 3rd) still in the penalty box. The Oilers also killed 7 of 8 penalties to show a strong outing on special teams.
Game notes:
*Raffi Torres scored the OT winner,
*Ryan Smyth and the suddenly hot Joffrey Lupul also scored for the Oil.
*Daniel Sedin scored both Canuck goals, for a team leading 5 in the preseason.
*Wade Flaherty had a solid game despite the loss, to respond to critisism that he may not be good enough to back up Luongo this season.
*Markus Naslund played with the Sedins and looked good there. Maybe this will be the top line this year.
