EDMONTON -- The Anaheim Ducks continued their trend of playing from behind Sunday night against the Edmonton Oilers despite scoring the game's opening goal.

Three unanswered second-period goals paced the Oilers to a 4-2 win against the Ducks in at Rexall Place on Sunday night.

Taylor Hall, David Perron, Justin Schultz and Jordan Eberle scored for the Oilers, who have won two in a row.

Jakob Silfverberg and Corey Perry scored for the Ducks, who have lost two straight. They have fallen behind by at least two goals in their past four games.

"I thought we started off well," said Ducks forward Devante Smith-Pelly. "We were dictating the play for the first 10-15 minutes. Then, the momentum seemed to switch."

Goaltender Viktor Fasth made 34 saves for the Oilers in the win, beating his former team for the first time since being traded to Edmonton a day prior to the March 5 NHL Trade Deadline.

Goalie Jonas Hiller stopped 24 shots for the Ducks, who failed to extend their lead in the Pacific Division. Anaheim is one point in front of the second-place San Jose Sharks.

Silfverberg opened the scoring 1:20 into the game, benefiting from a fortunate bounce in front of the net. Silfverberg's initial shot was stopped by Fasth, but the rebound bounced in off Oilers center Sam Gagner.

The Oilers tied the game on the power play at 6:17 of second period when Hall scored his 27th goal. The Oilers left wing was able to squeeze a shot from the side of the net through Hiller.

Perron, with his 27th goal, gave the Oilers the lead at 9:21, snapping a shot through Hiller from the faceoff circle. The goal came shorthanded as Ducks right wing Kyle Palmieri was stepping out of the penalty box with the teams playing 4-on-4.

Schultz increased the Oilers lead to 3-1 at 16:38 of the period, getting to the puck off a scramble in front and knocking it into the net before Hiller was able to cover it up with his pad.

The Ducks cut the lead to 3-2 when Perry scored his 42nd goal 25 seconds into the third period on the power play. Perry redirected a Ryan Getzlaf point shot past Fasth, with Patrick Maroon providing a screen in front.

Getzlaf came close to tying the game six minutes into the period on the power play, but his point shot hit the goal post behind Fasth.

Eberle scored his 27th goal into an empty net with 14 seconds left in the game.

The Ducks have scored 117 road goals this season, which breaks the franchise record. The previous record was 115 in 2008-09

The Ducks play the Vancouver Canucks on Monday in the second of a two-game road trip.
