Oilers Rout Canucks 6-2 in Final Game at Rexall Place
EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — Patrick Maroon scored twice and the Edmonton Oilers won at Rexall Place for the final time, beating the Vancouver Canucks 6-2 on Wednesday.
Nail Yakupov, Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl and Taylor Hall also scored for the Oilers, who snapped a three-game losing skid.
Matt Bartkowski and Bo Horvat scored for the Canucks, who had their three-game winning end.
It was the final NHL game scheduled to be played at Rexall, with the Oilers moving into a new downtown arena in the fall.
The Oilers have played in the building since 1974 when they were in the World Hockey Association.
More than 150 Oilers alumni were on hand for the farewell game and lengthy postgame ceremony, including the likes of Hall of Famers Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier, Jari Kurri, Paul Coffey, Glenn Anderson and Grant Fuhr.
