VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- Rookie Jason King's at 7:37
of the third period led the Vancouver Canucks to a 4-2 NHL
exhibition victory Tuesday night over the Edmonton Oilers.
With the game tied at 2-2, King parked himself on the side of
the net and tapped in his second goal of the preseason after a nice
passing play between Swedish twins Daniel and Henrik Sedin.
Tony Salmelainen and Marc-Andre Bergeron scored for the Oilers
(1-2-1-1). Tommy Salo kept it close with 35 saves as Edmonton was
outshot 39-10 by Vancouver.
Mike Keane scored twice, including an empty-net goal with 28
seconds remaining. Sami Salo also had a goal for the Canucks
(4-4-0), who lost starting goalie Johan Hedberg to a first-period
Hedberg appeared to hurt his right knee after colliding with
teammate Mattias Ohlund and Oilers forward Georges Laraque while
diving out for a loose puck. Hedberg, who missed 11 days of
training camp with stitches above the same knee, played another
nine minutes, but left after Salmelainen scored on a rebound.
