Authentic Anthony Miller Jersey

Defenseman Derrick Pouliot snapped a 1-1 tie with his third
goal of the season early in the third period and the Vancouver Canucks defeated
the Edmonton Oilers 2-1 Thursday night for their third consecutive win.

Sam Gagner also scored for the Canucks Authentic
Michael Dickson Jersey
, who have won four of their past five
games.

Connor McDavid scored for the Oilers, who have lost two in a row. Edmonton is
3-2-1 in its past six games.



Pouliot gave Vancouver the lead just 2 minutes into the third period. Nikolay
Goldobin fed the Canucks defenseman a pass from along the boards. Pouliot skated
in on Oilers goalie Cam Talbot, make a deke then scored his first goal in 42
games.

Leon Draisaitl had a chance to tie the game on an Oilers power play late in
the third, but his shot hit the post. Ryan Strome’s slap shot also hit the post
after a Canucks giveaway with just over two minutes remaining.

McDavid’s goal was his 41st of the season, giving him an NHL-leading 103
points Ryne
Sandberg Jersey
, leaving him six ahead of Tampa Bay’s Nikita
Kucherov. McDavid trails Washington’s Alex Ovechkin by four goals in the race
for the Rocket Richard Trophy.

Vancouver goaltender Jacob Markstrom stopped 35 shots. He’s 4-0-0 in his past
four starts. Talbot made 28 saves for the Oilers.

Markstrom kept the Canucks in the game with some big stops, including getting
a pad on Milan Lucic’s shot in the first period.

”For me right now it’s just a carry-over from the feeling I had in the
previous games,” Markstrom said. ”I just keep building on it.”

McDavid showed some of his magic on the game’s opening goal at 11:33 of the
first period. After defenseman Andrej Sekera flipped a puck down the ice,
McDavid showed his speed by skating around Gagner then muscled defenseman
Michael Del Zotto off the puck. He scored on a shot that hit Markstrom’s
blocker, went off the post Authentic
Chad Thomas Jersey
, and into the net.

Gagner was also battling the flu Thursday.

”When you get stuck on the ice with him (McDavid) it’s not funny even when
you are feeling 100 percent,” Gagner said. ”Obviously he’s special.”

The Oilers captain has 14 points (seven goals, seven assists) in his past six
games.

Gagner earned some redemption by tying the game at 15:14 of the second.
Daniel Sedin took a shot from the faceoff circle that Talbot stopped. Gagner,
alone at the side of the net, put in the rebound for his third goal in four
games.

”You never want to be a culprit on a goal-against Matt
Garza Jersey
,” Gagner said. ”It was a tough one there. I thought
the guys battled back really well. It’s a nice feeling.”

Adam Gaudette, the former Northeastern University Husky who recently signed
with Vancouver after leading the NCAA with 30 goals and 60 points, played his
first NHL game. On his opening shift, he sent a sizzling shot just wide of the
Oilers net.

NOTES: Gaudette is a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award as the best player in
NCAA hockey. … Henrik Sedin’s opening shift of the game was the 30,000th of his
career. … Brendan Gaunce returned to the Canucks lineup after missing 24 games
with a foot injury. … With several Canucks down with the flu Authentic
