Oilers squeak by Canucks

Jordan Eberle and Taylor Hall each had a goal 2.

Shawn Horcoff also lit the lamp for the Oilers, who have won two in a row. Nikolai Khabibulin, coming off his first shutout of the season against the Rangers on Saturday, stopped 35-of-37 shots.

The news was not all good for Edmonton, which lost defenseman Ryan Whitney to a right knee injury in the first period.

Cody Hodgson and Alexandre Burrows scored for the Canucks, who had a two-game winning streak snapped.

Roberto Luongo turned aside 11-of-14 shots before being pulled for Cory Schneider, who made eight saves over the remainder of regulation.

Forward David Booth received nearly 16 minutes of ice time and had three shots in his Vancouver debut. On Saturday, Vancouver acquired Booth and center Steve Reinprecht and a 2013 third-round draft pick from the Florida Panthers in exchange for forwards Mikael Samuelsson and Marco Sturm.
