PLAY OF THE GAME

The Oilers were behind 4-3 and shorthanded with Chris Pronger in the penalty box when Shawn Horcoff took a pass from Ethan Moreau, hit the top of the circles and pounded a slapper past Maxime Ouellet for his first goal in 18 games to tie it 4-4 with less than eight minutes left.

YOU SHOULD KNOW

Sidney Crosby got an "A" with Pittsburgh this week at age 18, but Trevor Linden shared the "C" with Vancouver at age 20 in 1990-91 and was named the NHL's youngest captain with the Canucks in 1991-92.
