A week after the Edmonton Oilers came back from a 2-0 deficit to beat the Canucks 3-2 in their own building, Vancouver rolled into Rexall Place and did the exact same thing. Trailing 2-0 after 28 minutes, the Canucks flicked the switch to "swarm" and had their way with Edmonton the rest of the night, pounding the Oilers with 34 shots over the final two periods and overtime before earning a 3-2 win. Down to five defensemen and three centers after injuries to Mark Fistric and Shawn Horcoff, the Oilers held out as long as they could, but Jannik Hansen closed it to 2-1 late in the second, Kevin Bieksa tied it with 2:17 left in regulation and Chris Tanev won it with 19 seconds left in overtime. "This was just what they did to us the first time we met, so it was nice to return the favor," Bieksa said. "We just stuck with it, worked hard and got ourselves back in the ga...

No matter how hard equipment companies try to make hockey gloves as protective as humanly possible, there will always be seams where body parts stick out as the hand bends and flexes, and Edmonton Oilers captain Shawn Horcoff, who wears a pair of Cadillacs in top-of-the-top-of-the-line Warrior gloves, still ended up suffering a nasty injury during the Oilers' 3-2 overtime loss...

Edmonton Oilers captain Shawn Horcoff is expected to be out “long term” after suffering a broken knuckle while blocking a shot in the second quarter against the Vancouver Canucks.
“It got pushed right in,” said Oilers coach Ralph Krueger.
“The glove opens up just a touch and it’s not an injury that really is something that’s due to some kind of contact of any sort....
from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,
Unlike the San Jose Sharks, who have about eight natural centres amongst their top 12 forwards–moving Patty Marleau and Joe Pavelski and Scott Gomez to the wing–the Edmonton Oilers are seriously lacking in that commodity. With Shawn Horcoff breaking a knuckle on his hand and Eric Belanger busting two toes , both blocking shots...
It looks like Luongo will get the starts in Vancouver
Now your probably reading this and saying why is this on a Bruins blog? The answer is because I, like most Bruins fans despise the Canucks and all their antics after that 7 game Stanley Cup finals, and
