"If you were late to the game, ya dun goofed. The Oilers scored on their first three shots of the game, Canucks goalie Cory Schneider was pulled for Roberto Luongo, and the Oilers continued to pile it on."

The Canucks had their six-game winning streak snapped and dropped into second place behind the Minnesota Wild in the Northwest Division -- both teams have 44 points, but the Wild have a game in hand. The four goals allowed by Vancouver in the Oilers' first-period outburst were only two fewer than the Canucks had allowed during the six-game winning streak.

It was not pretty. But...the Canucks had a super streak going into this game and the Oilers really needed these points (and played like it) to have a chance to make the postseason dance.

The Copper & Blue Three Stars:
★★★ - Magnus Paajarvi
★★ - Ladislav Smid, Jeff Petry
★ - Taylor Hall
