With a hard-fought victory, the Oilers clinch the final playoff spot in a Smythe race that went down to the wire with the Canucks
The injury-ravaged Canucks fought valiantly, as Kirk McLean slammed the door for most of the game, frustrating Edmonton shooters
In a very stingy game, Igor Larionov whipped the crowd into a frenzy tying the game 6:19 into the third period on a breakaway
The flood gates opened soon after.  Craig Simpson scored the GWG tipping a Ruotsalainen shot, and the Oilers poured it on a desperate Vancouver team who was pressing, needing a win
Vancouver has 1 game left when they host the Kings.  Edmonton has clinched 4th place.  The Oilers did not get a powerplay, while Vancouver had 7 including a 2-man-advantage
