EDMONTON -- It appears the Edmonton Oilers have another weapon to add to their already potent arsenal. David Perron scored a goal and added an assist on Saturday as the Edmonton Oilers came away with a 5-2 exhibition victory over the Vancouver Canucks. The 25-year-old from Sherbrooke, Que., upped his pre-season totals to three goals and four points in his first three games with the Oilers since coming in an off-season trade with St. Louis for fellow forward Magnus Paajarvi. Perron was pleased when he first learned of the trade because he would be leaving a strict defensive system with the Blues and joining the likes of Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle and Nail Yakupov in a more free-wheeling system with the Oilers. That feeling hasnt changed since he officially arrived in Edmonton. "Im even more excited now," said Perron. "Im trying to do my best to be a factor on both sides of the puck and produce every night. Hopefully I can keep improving. This is just the start. "Its nice to be coming to a team that is a little more offensive oriented. It is not like St. Louis wasnt trying to score, but it was pretty evident that they are a defence-first hockey team." Oilers head coach Dallas Eakins believes his club could have a gem in Perron. "I think we have a lot there," said Eakins.. "He can score, he competes hard and hes not afraid to get his nose dirty. Weve let him loose on the penalty kill a little bit. I think we have a very well-rounded player and another guy who is excited to play hockey. He really likes to play the game and thats important." Sam Gagner, Ryan Smyth, Yakupov and Will Acton also scored for the Oilers (3-1-1). Mike Santorelli and Jannik Hansen replied for the Canucks (0-3-0). The Canucks got on the board with the games first shot 1:20 into the first as Santorelli snuck the puck through the pads of Oilers starting goalie Jason LaBarbera. Edmonton had a full two minute five-on-three power play seven minutes into the opening period after a head shot on Hall, but were unable to get a puck past Vancouver goalie Eddie Lack. The Oilers tied the game on the power play with seven minutes left in the first as Perron sent a pass through the crease, giving Gagner an easy tap-in to an open net. Edmonton went up 2-1 four minutes into the second period with a short-handed goal from Perron, who picked up a rebound and sent a backhander in for his third of the pre-season. The Canucks lost centre Jordan Schroeder midway through the second as he had to be helped off the ice favouring his left leg after blocking a shot. Gagner also left the game late in the second after taking a Zack Kassian stick in the face and losing several teeth and did not return. The game stayed 2-1 until 15:58 of the third period when a puck deflected to Smyth at the doorstep and he shovelled it past Lack for a two-goal lead. Less than a minute later the Canucks responded as Hansen picked the corner on Oilers backup Tyler Rimmer to make it 3-2. Edmonton put the game away shortly afterwards, however, as Yakupov beat Lack with a quick wrist shot and Acton scored into an empty net. Notes: It was the second consecutive pre-season game between the two teams. Edmonton won the first contest 4-1 in Vancouver on Wednesday. The Oilers and Canucks will next meet in regular season play on Oct. 5 in Vancouver. Winger David Booth was expected to make his first appearance in a Canucks game since March 16th, but left the morning skate after just five minutes with what was described as groin stiffness. Chris Higgins, Alex Edler and Schroeder made their pre-season debuts for Vancouver... Neither Daniel or Henrik Sedin made the trip to Edmonton. Defenceman Anton Belov made his Oilers debut after arriving at training camp a few days late due to visa problems. The six-foot-four Russian was a coveted free agent after a career-high 26 points in 46 games for Omsk Avangard in the KHL last season. Dion Lewis Jersey .

"What I love about the team today is that, when people tell you youre supposed to win the game by a lot, you come in at halftime and its close, if you listened to the outside people youd get a little anxious," Shaw said. "In the locker room at halftime, we were not anxious. We knew we had to play our best, came out in the second half, and played great." Played to a near standstill the first two quarters by a 30-point underdog, the Cardinal regrouped in the second half and beat the Black Knights 34-20 on Saturday. Kevin Hogan threw for three touchdowns and Tyler Gaffney had two touchdowns and 132 yards rushing for the Cardinal (2-0). Still, Stanford had its hands full against Armys triple option offence, falling behind 6-0 at the outset as the much smaller Black Knights (1-2) challenged at every turn. "They came out there with a little bit different approach than what we had seen," said defensive end Josh Mauro, who led Stanford with seven tackles. "It just took guys having the will to do their jobs. We made some adjustments in the second half to stop the inside run. We got the look all week, but its so much different when youre actually doing it. All the credit to them. They played their butts off." Hogans 23-yard touchdown pass to Gaffney after an Army turnover gave Stanford a 27-13 lead late in the third quarter and the Cardinal averted an embarrassing moment. Army has not defeated a ranked team since a 17-14 win over No. 15 Air Force on Nov. 4, 1972. "We kept our calm. We tried to keep an even keel," Gaffney said after his second straight solid performance following a year of minor league baseball. "We went out there knowing that six points wasnt going to win the game. We went out there with the same mindset, keep grinding. We didnt overlook them. We had to keep grinding. We were down. Adversity stepped in and we responded." Ty Montgomery had six catches for 130 yards and one score, while Hogan was 11 of 18 for 188 yards passing for Stanford. Terry Baggett led Army with 96 yards rushing on nine carries. Done in by three turnovers and eighht penalties in a 40-14 loss last week at Ball State, Army needed to play a flawless game against the Cardinal to have a fighting chance and acquitted itself well.ddddddddddddThe Black Knights forced the lone turnover of the first half as neither team was penalized before the break. The most critical play came in the third quarter. Trailing 20-13 and poised to tie the game, Army quarterback Angel Santiago botched a third-down handoff after the Black Knights had driven into Stanford territory, and James Vaughters recovered the fumble for the Cardinal. Montgomerys 27-yard catch on a third-and-7 play set up Gaffneys touchdown catch. "We didnt play the game we wanted to play," Baggett said. "Our goal coming into the game was to win. There were about three offensive plays offensively that changed this game. We have to make those plays every time. Its a step in the right direction, but its not the final step for us." Army failed on a fourth-and-1 play early in the fourth quarter inside its own 30 and the Cardinal secured the victory on Gaffneys 1-yard run. Stanfords rushing defence has posted the best numbers in school history the past two seasons, allowing 84.4 yards per game in 2011 and 97 per game last year. Armys triple option led the nation in rushing both years, averaging a school-record 369.8 yards per game and accumulating 4,438 yards on the ground in 2012. The Black Knights, despite the loss of four-year starter Trent Steelman at quarterback, entered Saturdays game on pace for another strong year, averaging 329 yards rushing in splitting their first two games. Not quite so effective without Raymond Maples and Larry Dixon, who were hurt in the game and sat much of it, the Black Knights still finished with 284 yards rushing on 61 carries, and inspired play by the Army defence kept the game close for most of the first three quarters. "They didnt do anything different. Weve seen everything they did on film," Mauro said. "Its just so different actually being out there, the speed they go. Those linemen are undersized, but theyre the quickest offensive line probably in the nation. Those guys are really good at what they do. Its hard to simulate that in four days and do it on Saturday, actually see the real thing."
