Edmonton (16-11-2) at Ny Islanders (14-12-2) 7:00 pm EST
UNIONDALE, New York (Ticker) -- Two days after getting their road
trip off to a special start, Ethan Moreau and the Edmonton
Oilers look to ride the momentum into Saturday's contest with
the New York Islanders.
The Oilers opened their three-game road swing Thursday with a
3-2 triumph in Philadelphia. Moreau scored a pair of
shorthanded goals and Jarret Stoll added a power-play tally for
Edmonton, which won for the fifth time in seven games.
New York is coming off Thursday's 4-3 shootout loss to Columbus
in which Mark Parrish scored with 37 seconds left in regulation
to tie it before Rick DiPietro allowed the game-winner to David
Vyborny in the shootout.
Trent Hunter and Mike York, who has six points in his last two
games, also scored for the Islanders, who had won three of their
last four games.
New York has owned Edmonton over the last six years, winning
five straight matchups since a 4-2 loss on December 14, 1999.
The Islanders took the lone meeting of the 2003-04 season,
winning 3-2 on January 8, 2004 behind two goals by Justin
