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 Papineau.
