Washington (3-2-4) at Edmonton (6-4-0) 10:00 pm EDT
EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) -- The Edmonton Oilers have lost their
last two games, in exceedingly poor fashion, and look to
rebound when they host the Washington Capitals on Saturday.
Edmonton has been outscored, 12-4, in dropping its last two road
games at Anaheim and Phoenix. In its 6-2 setback to the
Coyotes on Thursday, the Oilers only killed 2-of-4 power-play
Fernando Pisani and Peter Sykora scored for the Oilers, who
actually outshot the Coyotes, 23-19.
Pisani, who had 14 goals, including five game-winners in the
playoffs last season, scored his first goal of the season.
Edmonton has won six straight home games against Washington
while outscoring the Capitals, 31-11.
The Capitals try to rebound from a 3-2 shootout loss to the
Vancouver Canucks on Friday.
Washington was blanked in the shootout by Vancouver netminder
Roberto Luongo, with Alexander Ovechkin beating Luongo but
hitting the goalpost on his attempt.
Dainius Zubrus and Ovechkin scored in regulation for the
Capitals, who were outshot, 44-21.
