(SportsNetwork.com) - The Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks both take aim at their first wins of the season on Saturday, as the Canucks open their home slate at Rogers Arena. The Canucks began the John Tortorella era on Thursday in San Jose, but the new head coachs debut didnt go well. Vancouver was handed a 4-1 loss by the Sharks, so Tortorella will try to earn his first win with the Canucks on home ice. Vancouver opened the scoring Thursday with a power-play goal from Jason Garrison in the first period, but Brent Burns tallied the first of San Joses four unanswered goals in the second stanza. The Canucks were swept by the Sharks in the first round of the playoffs last year, prompting Vancouver to fire head coach Alain Vigneault and bring in Tortorella. Roberto Luongo gave up all four goals on 35 shots in defeat, but he did help the Canucks kill off all eight of San Joses power-play opportunities. "The first 10 minutes we played the way we should," Tortorella said. "Then after we scored, we turned a couple over and we lost the momentum." Vancouver was 15-6-3 as the home team last season and is playing four of its next five games as the host. The Canucks and Oilers have been divisional foes for decades, but the clubs are now members of the Pacific Division after spending recent seasons in the now-defunct Northwest. The clubs met five times during the lockout-shortened season of 2013 and Edmonton claimed three of those encounters. Vancouver, which won the Northwest Division title in each of the previous five seasons, has claimed six of nine overall in its series against the Oilers. Edmonton also has lost four of five and nine of the last 11 matchups at Rogers Arena. The Oilers also are aiming to rebound from a season-opening loss after dropping a 5-4 home decision to Winnipeg on Tuesday. The setback came in the NHL head coaching debut of Dallas Eakins, who is Edmontons fifth different head coach in the last six seasons. Edmonton held a 4-2 lead in the second period of Tuesdays game before allowing Winnipeg to notch three unanswered goals to pull off the comeback. Michael Frolik scored the game-winner for the Jets with 5:02 remaining in the third period. Devan Dubnyk suffered through a difficult season debut, making just 23 saves and surrendering all five goals in the setback. "I just got to be better," Dubnyk said. "I got to give these guys a better opportunity of winning the game." Boyd Gordon and Jesse Joensuu both scored in their first game with the Oilers after signing as free agents in the offseason. Mike Brown and Ales Hemsky were Edmontons other goal scorers. After Saturdays tilt in British Columbia, the Oilers will head back home for games against New Jersey and Montreal. Edmonton will then follow the two-game residency with six straight on the road. Ryan Nugetn-Hopkins will miss his second game to begin the season due to left shoulder surgery he underwent in April, but Eakins said on Friday that the forward will return sooner than expected on Monday versus the Devils.

Catch the game on TSN starting at 4pm et/1pm pt. Saskatchewan kicked off the campaign with five straight victories and wins in eight of its first nine games, but then the Riders hit more than a few stumbling blocks which included a four-game slide and back-to-back defeats to close out the regular season, which is why they are playing this weekend and not enjoying added time to prepare for the division final. The Lions, who were immediately in chase mode as they tried to catch up to Saskatchewan, managed to produce a couple of three-game win streaks this year and also posted consecutive triumphs in the final weeks in order to match the Riders record overall. The Lions will be without MLB Solomon Elimimian, who did not make the trip with a leg injury. Last season, BC was the clear-cut, regular-season leader with a 13-5 record, winning the West Division by a game over Calgary, while the Roughriders finished two games below .500, but because the bottom teams in the East Division were worse than the rest of the teams in the league, Saskatchewan was given entrance into the postseason where it bowed to the Stampeders in the semifinals by a score of 36-30. With Calgary advancing to the division finals in 2012, the Lions ended up having their hands full and eventually suffered a 34-29 loss at home. With regard to success in the playoffs over the years, more specifically each teams response to playing in the Grey Cup, the Roughriders have had the worst luck of any active club in that title tilt over the years. Saskatchewan has appeared in a total of 18 Grey Cups, but taken home the prestigious trophy a mere three times. The last of those championships came in 2007 when the team topped Winnipeg at Rogers Centre, 23-19. Saskatchewan has appeared in the championship game two times since winning it all, but in 2009 the Riders suffered a narrow 28-27 setback to Montreal and then a year later it was the same story versus the Alouettes, this time being a 221-18 final.dddddddddddd British Columbia has appeared in the fewest Grey Cup Championships of any of the current eight league members, only 10, but still the Lions have twice as many trophies as the Roughriders. It was just two years ago that the Lions posted a 34-23 win over Winnipeg in their home stadium, BC Place. This year the challenge might be a bit bigger for the Lions, seeing as how they fielded their third different starting quarterback of the season in their final outing, a 26-7 victory over visiting Calgary on Nov. 1. In that contest, Buck Pierce took the field for the Lions, although so did Thomas DeMarco and Travis Lulay, even though there really was nothing left to play for with the playoff picture already set. Lulay will get the start against the Roughriders. While there was some uncertainty at quarterback for the Lions this season, it shouldnt come as much of a surprise to find that the squad ranked next-to- last in the league with just 4,408 passing yards and produced an efficiency rating of 88.4. Over on the other side, Darian Durant was one of the most reliable passers as far as durability was concerned, starting all but two games, one of which was the season finale. Durant may have had some trouble with overall accuracy at times, but in the final tally he still led the league with 31 passing TDs, against just 12 INTs. In addition to having a solid passer orchestrating the offense for the Riders, the defense was also something to behold as it led the league in points allowed at 22.1 ppg. In terms of their matchups during the 2013 regular season, these teams played a total of three times, all within a span of just five weeks between Sept. 22 and Oct. 19, with the Roughriders posting back-to-back victories after dropping the first encounter by a mere two points, 24-22. The latest triumph was a lopsided 35-14 final at home for a Saskatchewan team that scored 21 points in the second quarter and 31 in the first half in order to pull away for the comfortable victory. The team that survives this battle will be back in action next week against Calgary in the West Division Finals, for the right to take part in the 101st Grey Cup at Mosaic Stadium later this month.
