Overtime Time Goal Assist Assist Score  
N/A              
The Oilers inch ever closer to Vancouver with a convincing 5-2 victory in front of a sold out Northlands Coliseum.  Now trail by 2 points with a game in hand
The top line for Edmonton does a lot of damage with a +4.  Jari Kurri had a goal and 4 assists, messier 2 goals and 2 assists, and Craig Simpson 2 goals and an assist.
Bill Ranford again solid for Edmonton, saving 32 of 34 shots including 4 of 6 goalie rating draws, keeping Vancouver behind
Vancouver has won only 1 of their last 5, while Edmonton is 9-4-0 in their last 13 games.  The teams are fighting for the Smythe's last playoff spot
The two teams meet again on February 16th in Vancouver.  For now, Edmonton heads East to face the Hartford Whalers
