Fresh off receiving a Christmas gift of cash from the CIty of Edmonton, the Oilers were able to ice a full squad in a 6-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks.
Ryan Smyth, who will now be able to play the entire season, notched his second hat trick in as many games for the Oilers.
"WE're happy we got this windfall. SMyth will be in the lineup for as long as he's healthy. No more bake sales for us, baby," exclaimed Oilers coach Craig Mactavish.
ROunding out the scoring for the Oilers were Jani Rita, George Laraque and Jason Smith.
Vancouver's lone goal came from Canucks call-up Bryan Bieksa, who was having a strong rookie season in Manitoba before being called up earlier this month.
"Scoring my first NHL goal is the best present I could ever ask for this Christmas," said Bieksa, a Bowling Green University alumni.
