ST. LOUIS (Ticker) -- The Edmonton Oilers and St. Louis Blues have very different goals at this point.

When the teams face off Sunday, the Oilers will try to improve their playoff position while the Blues aim to end the longest losing streak in franchise history.

Edmonton sits in seventh place in the Western Conference, one point behind sixth-place Colorado with four games remaining.

The Oilers, who have alternated wins and losses in their last seven games, are coming off Friday's 4-3 overtime triumph over Chicago. Ryan Smyth scored his second goal of the game with 1:42 remaining in the extra session for Edmonton, which also got tallies from Ales Hemsky and Fernando Pisani.

Meanwhile, St. Louis has dropped 13 straight games since a 3-2 overtime win against Columbus on March 13. The team's latest defeat came Saturday in a 4-2 loss to Colorado despite power-play goals by defenseman Kevin Dallman and Keith Tkachuk.

St. Louis, which sits one point better than Pittsburgh in the race for the league's worst record, holds a 2-1 advantage in the season series with Edmonton.
