The Edmonton Oilers prevailed 3-2 in Game 4 against the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday, evening the series at 2-2 in dramatic fashion.

After Brock Boeser tied it for the Canucks, Evan Bouchard scored the game-winner just over one minute later with 39 seconds remaining in regulation.

Canucks forward J.T. Miller took responsibility for the goal.

"I'm pretty upset with myself at the moment," Miller said postgame. "That was a pretty big play at the end of the game there. The pass should have never got to Bouchard and certainly shouldn't get past me."

The Oilers controlled much of the game and led 2-0 until Conor Garland gave the Canucks some life in the third period.

A loss would've marked another collapse for the Oilers, who held a 4-1 lead in Game 1 before ultimately losing 5-4.

Calvin Pickard recorded the win in his first career postseason start, turning aside 19 of 21 shots.

Leon Draisaitl and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored the other two goals for Edmonton.
