Weight took a pass from Bobby Ryan before beating Oilers goalie Mathieu Garon. Corey Perry also scored for the Ducks while Marty Reasoner had the lone Edmonton goal.

The Ducks (19-15-5) are 4-0-1 since Scott Niedermayer returned. The playoff MVP had been contemplating retirement.

The Oilers (16-19-3) suffered their fourth straight loss.

The best chance in a scoreless first period came just four minutes in when Fernando Pisani rang a short-handed shot off the crossbar behind Ducks starter Jean-Sebastien Giguere. Anaheim had eight shots on Garon to four from the Oilers in the opening period.

Reasoner made it 1-0 at 4:32 of the second period when he tipped a point shot from defenseman Tom Gilbert past Giguere.

Anaheim evened it about eight minutes later as Todd Bertuzzi took the puck behind the goal-line and made a great feed to Perry in the crease. It was Perry's 20th goal of the season.

The Ducks led 15-11 on the shot clock after the second period.

Both teams return to the ice on Saturday as the Oilers visit Minnesota and the Ducks journey to Calgary.

Notes: Oilers forward Ales Hemsky missed the game with a knee injury. An MRI was taken on Hemsky's left knee on Thursday and he is day-to-day. ... Oilers captain Ethan Moreau (bruised foot) skated with the team Thursday and says he will be ready to go on Saturday. The forward has suffered a string of injuries that have kept him out of the lineup since Oct. 2006. ... Ducks center Samuel Pahlsson did not make the three-game post-break trip with the team, suffering from an abdominal strain. ... Edmonton took three of four meetings from the Ducks this year.
