VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- Daniel Sedin scored once with the man advantage and assisted on two other goals as the Vancouver Canucks showed their power play was in top form with a 6-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday night.<

Vancouver went 4-9 with the man advantage. The Oilers' power play struggled, going 0-8.

Anson Carter, a free-agent signee who is already paying dividends, scored once on the power play and earned an assist on Henrik Sedin's goal. Josh Green and Trevor Linden also scored on the power play. Defenseman Ed Jovanovski scored the other goal as the Canucks ended the preseason with a 3-2-2 record.

Shawn Horcoff scored once for the Oilers and assisted on Ryan Smyth's goal.

Dan Cloutier went the distance in goal for Vancouver, stopping 27 shots. Ty Conklin made 22 saves for Edmonton.

The Canucks have been flexing their power-play muscle all preseason. Vancouver went into the game with the league's second-best power play, having scored 14 goals on 61 chances for a 23 percent efficiency.

The teams were tied 2-2 after the first period before Vancouver broke the game open with four unanswered second-period goals.
