ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -Ryan Getzlaf had two goals and an assist, Corey Perry and Dustin Penner each had a goal and an assist, and the Anaheim Ducks beat the Edmonton Oilers 5-1 on Friday night for their fourth straight victory.
Andy McDonald scored his 20th goal and Ilya Bryzgalov made 28 saves for the Pacific Division leaders, helping send Edmonton to its sixth straight loss. The Ducks have 41 victories and lead the division with 93 points. They are two wins and five points from equaling the franchise record both set last season.
Toby Petersen scored a short-handed goal for the Oilers, who have yet to win a game since trading Ryan Smyth to the New York Islanders on March 1. They faced the Ducks with five forwards and five defensemen sidelined by injuries, and dressed only 17 skaters.
Jan Hejda dislocated his left shoulder and Steve Staios injured his left knee in Edmonton's 3-1 loss to Tampa Bay on Wednesday. The Oilers had 20-year-old defenseman Bryan Young make his NHL debut after being promoted from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL.
