EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) -- The Edmonton Oilers began the season with three consecutive victories. However, that run seems like ancient history.

The Oilers look to stop their five-game losing streak Friday when they host the Colorado Avalanche.

Ethan Moreau scored his first goal of the season on Thursday for Edmonton, which suffered its second defeat to the cross-province rival Calgary Flames in six days, a 3-1 loss.

The Oilers, who had a 20-8 edge in shots through the first half of the setback to the Flames, have given up 16 goals during the losing drought, which includes an overtime loss to Phoenix on Tuesday.

Colorado has dropped its last three contests and has failed to hold three-goal leads in two of those losses, including Wednesday's 5-4 defeat to the Los Angeles Kings.

Ian Laperriere scored twice and Joe Sakic added his third goal of the season for the Avalanche, who are not picking up contract options on Sakic and Rob Blake for next season, which would make them unrestricted free agents.

Shawn Horcoff scored twice for Edmonton in a 4-3 triumph over Colorado in their first meeting of the season on Opening Night.
