Canucks rally past Oilers

Sep 23, 2008 - 4:06 AM EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) -- Jason Krog scored in the third round of the shootout as the Vancouver Canucks rallied from three different deficits to post a 4-3 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Monday.

Jeff Cowan, Mattias Ohlund and rookie Dan Gendur all scored for Vancouver, which hosts Edmonton in the second leg of the home-and-home series on Tuesday.

Gendur tied the game at 3-3 with 5:37 remaining and eventually sent it to overtime despite relentless pressure from the Canucks. Vancouver outshot Edmonton, 16-4, in the third period.

After a scoreless five-minute overtime, the teams went to a shootout and were knotted at 1-1 after the first two skaters. Krog put the Canucks in front and Ales Hemsky misfired on his attempt to give Vancouver the win.

New acquisition Erik Cole made a solid debut for the Oilers, recording a goal and an assist within the game's first 6:37.

Traded from the Carolina Hurricanes in the offseason, the former 30-goal scorer assisted on Sheldon Souray's power-play goal at the 1:21 mark of the first and later scored on a pass from Souray just over five minutes later to give Edmonton a 2-1 lead.

Beginning his second season in the league, 19-year-old Sam Gagner gave Edmonton a 3-2 lead with 4:35 left in the second period on a shorthanded tally.
