VANCOUVER - If half a Boston Bruins team didn’t show the Edmonton Oilers just how far away they really are on Thursday night, the Vancouver Canucks certainly did on Friday.

After putting together a nice little stretch of 7-4-1 in 12 games, the Oilers moved up a weight class against Boston and Vancouver and got knocked right out, losing back-to-back games for the first time in a month.

The Oilers started their road trip the same way they ended their homestand — by losing to a bigger and better team.

Devan Dubnyk kept Vancouver at bay for as long as he could, but couldn’t make up for the mess in front of him forever and finally wilted under the relentless pressure, giving up three goals in the third period of the flattering 4-0 loss.
