DETROIT (Ticker) -- Even if they fail to win Tuesday, the Detroit Red Wings can still clinch the league's best record.

Detroit can wrap up the Presidents' Trophy for a league-best fifth time since 1985-1986 when they face the Edmonton Oilers, who remain in a fight for the final Western Conference playoff spot.

With six wins in their last seven games, the Red Wings have an eight-point lead over Ottawa and Carolina for the league's best mark. The Senators and the Hurricanes have just four games left.

Brendan Shanahan scored his 36th goal and Jason Williams added his 20th for Detroit, which won its 10th straight road game with Saturday 4-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Red Wings also set a league record with their 29th road win of the season.

Looking to avoid missing the playoffs for the third time in four seasons, Edmonton is eighth in the West, with a two-point edge over Vancouver and three games left.

Despite a 23-4 edge in shots on goal in the third period of Sunday's matchup against the St. Louis Blues, the Oilers suffered a 2-1 loss. Chris Pronger's power-play goal with 25 seconds left prevented the shutout.

Edmonton won the first two encounters against Detroit this season before the Red Wings posted a 6-5 victory on March 18. Williams and Henrik Zetterberg scored in the shootout for Detroit.
