Up in good ol' Edmonton, on the day before Thanksgiving (the holiday was celebrated on Oct. 8 in Canada), the Oilers are thankful the league adopted the shootout rule after the lockout.

This season, the Oilers have a league-high five shootout victories, including Tuesday's 5-4 win over the visiting Canucks. Those wins account for more than half of their total number of wins. They have just three regulation victories among their 21 games (8-12-1).
