EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) -- The Edmonton Oilers' strong play at
home this season is an extension of what took place last
The Oilers conclude a three-game homestand against the
struggling Phoenix Coyotes on Monday.
Edmonton closed the 2005-06 campaign with three straight wins
here before defeating the Detroit Red Wings, 3-1, on Saturday to
begin 4-0-0 at home this season.
Petr Sykora and Joffrey Lupul scored a goal apiece while Dwayne
Roloson made 26 saves for the Oilers, who have won four of their
last five games.
The Coyotes absorbed their second consecutive shutout loss, 4-0,
at the Dallas Stars on Saturday. Curtis Joseph turned away 28
shots for Phoenix, which was outshot, 32-22.
Phoenix, which won last year's season series with a 2-1-1 mark,
has not scored in its last 120:23, dating back to a 5-2 win over
the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday.
