Pisani, Oilers Get By Ducks 6-5 in Shootout

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) - Fernando Pisani scored the shootout winner and had a goal and an assist in regulation to lead the Edmonton Oilers past the Anaheim Mighty Ducks 6-5 on Monday night.

Pisani had the lone goal in the shootout, and goalie Mike Morrison improved to 5-0 in shootouts.

Ryan Smyth scored twice, while Marc-Andre Bergeron and Jaroslav Spacek also tallied for Edmonton, which scored two power-play goals to tie Calgary for second place in the Northwest Division.

Chris Kunitz, Teemu Selanne and Corey Perry were stopped by Morrison in the shootout.

Andy McDonald, Corey Perry, Chris Kunitz, Todd Marchant and Scott Niedermayer scored for the Mighty Ducks in regulation.

Niedermayer, the Ducks' captain, is playing with a knee injury that might keep him off the Canadian roster at the Turin Olympics.

The Oilers improved to 6-4 after their NHL-high 10th shootout.

Smyth and Bergeron, on a power play, beat Anaheim goalie J.S. Giguere with Edmonton's first two shots of the game. Smyth's goal required a video review and took several minutes to confirm.

Smyth, with goals in four of his last five games, added Edmonton's second power-play goal to tie the game 3-3 in the second period after tipping Chris Pronger's point shot. The Oilers' defenseman finished with two assists for seven points in three game against Anaheim this season.

Spacek scored with a long shot from the point high over Giguere's glove in the third period. It was his first goal in his fourth game with Edmonton after coming over in a trade with Chicago.

The Mighty Ducks beat Jussi Markkanen twice on their first eight shots. Mike Peca coughed up a puck that McDonald pounced on, and Perry tipped a hard shot from the high slot.

McDonald, who has extended his career-high scoring streak to eight games, then set up Kunitz at 4:47 of the second period before Smyth answered at 12:13.

Marchant poked in a loose rebound in the third period.

Niedermayer gave the Mighty Ducks a brief lead before Pisani had his first goal since Jan. 3 to tie the game 5-5.

Georges Laraque went over 800 career penalty minutes following a first-period fight with Todd Fedoruk.

Edmonton defenseman Steve Staios recorded his 100th assist on Pisani's goal, and Peca sustained a right hip flexor strain and didn't play in the third period.

Notes: The Oilers placed No. 3 goalie Ty Conklin on waivers before the game. ... Edmonton captain Jason Smith returned after sitting out one game with a bruised toe. ... Fans were given a life-size poster of the 6-foot-6 Pronger.
