VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Raffi Torres' power-play goal at 1:40 of overtime gave the Edmonton Oilers a 3-2 victory over the Vancouver Canucks in the final preseason game for both teams Saturday night.
Edmonton completed the preseason with a 6-2 record, while the Canucks were 2-6.
The victory gave the Oilers a sweep of their two-game preseason series with Vancouver and set the stage for eight regular-season meetings between the Western Canadian regional rivals.
Edmonton led 1-0 after the first period but the score was tied 2-2 after 40 minutes. All of Edmonton's goals came on power plays, as the Oilers went 3-for-7 with the man advantage.
Joffrey Lupul and Ryan Smyth scored Edmonton's other goals. Daniel Sedin scored both of Vancouver's goals, converting a pair of passes from his identical twin, Henrik Sedin.
The Canucks were forced to play shorthanded during the overtime session as Matt Cooke received a double-minor penalty for boarding and unsportsmanlike conduct with 6.6 seconds remaining in the third period.
Lupul, Edmonton's principal acquisition in the five-player trade that sent star defenseman Chris Pronger to the Anaheim Ducks in the offseason, gave the Oilers a 1-0 lead during a power play with less than a minute left in the first period.
Daniel Sedin evened the score at 1-1 with a power-play tally at 8:45 of the second. Smyth gave Edmonton a 2-1 lead during another power play at 14:30 before Daniel Sedin created a 2-2 deadlock at 18:28.
