VANCOUVER - The Edmonton Oilers went in to face the Vancouver Canucks Monday determined not to be pushed around.

They weren’t.

In fact, the Oilers did plenty of pushing of their own, icing a lineup with more meat in it and pulling out a 4-2 win.

It was the first time this season the Oilers have beaten someone in their division not named the Calgary Flames. It was also the first time they’ve won on back-to-back nights.

Jesse Joensuu scored the game winner early in the third period for the Oilers, converting a feed from Ryan Smyth.

David Perron led the way with his second-career hat-trick, and first with the Oilers, to increase his team lead to 22 on the season.

Perron's first hat-trick also came against the Canucks.

Jordan Schroeder was credited with a both goals for the Canucks, although he didn’t put the puck in the net on either goal.
