The Edmonton Oilers scoffed at the fact that their last victory lacked artistic merit.

Leon Draisaitl's second goal of the game early in the third period was the victor as the visiting Edmonton Oilers beat the Vancouver Canucks 3-2 on Sunday in the second half of a home-and-home series on consecutive nights. "You're not going to win every game, but you want to make sure when you don't win, you bounce back. It was a gritty effort through the whole lineup".

Connor McDavid leads the Oilers with 19 goals and has recorded 49 points.

Edmonton received a dominant performance from Mikko Koskinen against the Avalanche but eventually some sloppy play, combined with some extremely suspect calls put a L in the books for Edmonton.

Josh Leivo scored in a rebound 2-1 for the Canucks, in the second game it was still 7:54.

The Oilers are 7-7-3 in conference games. Vancouver leads the league with 28 power-play goals, led by Bo Horvat with six.

"It's frustrating", he said. For the Oilers sake, they need to hope both the original and the sequel are going to be enjoyable for them. "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".

Goaltender Jacob Markstrom, who made his first consecutive game, stopped 26 shots for Vancouver. The Edmonton Oilers are on the road as they face the Vancouver Canucks Sunday night.

Draisaitl struck again in the third game at the beginning, finishing a quick passing game with James Neal and Alex Chiasson.

The Canucks outshot the Oilers 23-14 through 40 minutes and the teams were tied 2-all.

Graovac, who was called up by the Canucks on November 13 ripped a shot past Smith just 3:31 into the opening period.

Vancouver Canucks Try to Defend Home IceVancouver had a big offensive showing but fell apart in the late stages of the game against Pittsburgh on the road. Not only do Draisatl and McDavid rank first and second, respectively, in points but they are also the only two forwards in the National Hockey League averaging over 22 minutes of ice time per game.

Skinner, 21, has a savings percentage of 3.23 GAA and.890 in 15 games for Bakersfield.

Smith was clearly hurting in last night's game, and has hit a cold streak over the last six games he has played going 2-4 and posting a.846 sv%.

"They are good players", said Edmonton coach Dave Tippett.

There are signs of looming regression, but they just may not be as drastic as we once thought.

"Even-strength tonight, I thought we were the better team", Canucks captain Bo Horvat said.

Pearson's first-period goal was the fifth shorthanded against the Oilers, tying them with Columbus and Calgary for the league high.

The Oilers opened the scoring when McDavid dug a puck out of the corner and sent a pass in front of the net that was deflected to the blue line.

"We're all pros, you learn from a game like that", Canucks forward J.T. Miller said. However, the Canucks successfully challenged for goalie interference, and the goal was taken off the board.

In 25 games this season, Nugent-Hopkins has five goals and 11 assists. Defender Alex Edler, who leads Vancouver on average in 23 minutes and 38 seconds, missed the game due to an upper-body injury. Defenseman Oscar Fantenberg dressed for his first game as a Canuck.

Kassian (back) and Mike Smith (leg) didn't play. Antonie Roussel has been recalled from the Comets after being on loan for a conditioning stint and playing two AHL games.
