Vancouver, BC (Sports Network) - Ales Hemsky netted the deciding goal in the shotout, as the Edmonton Oilers rallied from a two-goal deficit to overcome the Vancouver Canucks, 3-2, at Rogers Arena.

Hemsky beat Canucks netminder Roberto Luongo cleanly with a wrister to end the second round, following up Sam Gagner's backhander on Edmonton's first try. Devan Dubnyk stopped both Alex Edler and Alex Burrows to salt away the victory.

Hemsky and Jordan Eberle scored in regulation for the Oilers, who halted a four-game slide to their division rivals in their season opener. Dubnyk ended up with 27 saves.

Edler and Zack Kassian tallied for the Canucks, who put together a better effort than Saturday's 7-3 loss to Anaheim but were lucky to come up with one point. Luongo finished with 30 stops in his first start of the year.
