VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Jannik Hansen scored the go-ahead goal 5:36 into the third period and Roberto Luongo made 28 saves to lead the Vancouver Canucks to a 4-1 exhibition win over the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday night.

Cody Hodgson started the scoring on a first period power play after Luongo turned aside three early odd-man rushes, and finished it with his second goal into an empty net with 1.2 seconds left. That came shortly after Mikael Samuelsson's goal made it 3-1 with 44.8 seconds remaining.

Magnus Paajarvi scored on a power play and Nikolai Khabibulin stopped 25 shots for the Oilers, who left several regulars out of the lineup after playing in Minnesota the night before.
