EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) -- The Detroit Red Wings look to rebound from a rare loss Saturday when they visit the Edmonton Oilers.

Detroit had its nine-game winning streak snapped with Friday's 4-1 loss at Calgary. Dan Cleary scored the only goal for Detroit, which outshot Calgary, 30-25, but surrendered three power-play goals.

Detroit netminder Dominik Hasek had an uncharacteristic off night, allowing four goals on only 25 shots.

The Oilers, the defending Western Conference champions, have gone 3-0-1 in their last four games. Edmonton is 7-2-0 at home this season, outscoring its opponents, 34-19.

Edmonton is coming off Thursday's 6-2 victory over St. Louis. Ryan Smyth, who was injured in Edmonton's 2-1 victory Colorado on Monday, showed no effect of the injury against St. Louis.

Smyth scored twice, including the eventual game-winner on the power play at 12:08 of the first period.

The Oilers, who got three quick goals against the Blues to take control early, also got goals from Marty Reasoner, Joffrey Lupul, Marc-Andre Bergeron and Fernando Pasani.

Edmonton goaltender Dwayne Roloson was solid in making 25 saves for the Oilers, who were 4-for-10 on the power play.
