EDMONTON, ALBERTA (TICKER) —The Mighty Ducks of Anaheim look to run their winning streak to four games when they visit the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday.

Anaheim has won three straight one-goal decisions and is trying to win four in row for the first time since a season-high five-game skein from December 6-18.

Acquired from the Florida Panthers on Thursday, defenseman Sandis Ozolinsh scored the go-ahead goal in Tuesday’s 3-2 win at Calgary. Ozolinsh, who played for the Eastern Conference All-Star team, also assisted on Mike Leclerc’s fourth goal of the season in the first period.

With the Panthers, the 30-year-old Latvian had seven goals and 19 assists in 51 games.

Ozolinsh’s tally lifted the Ducks to their eighth win in 11 games (8-2-0-1) and moved them five games above .500 for the third time this season.

Edmonton trails first-place Vancouver by seven points in the Northwest Division and is 7-3-2-1 over its last 13 games.

The Oilers entered the All-Star break by skating to a 3-3 tie at Vancouver on Thursday. One night after his career first two-goal effort, rookie Jason Chimera scored the tying goal at 5:40 of the third period.

The Oilers have won the first two meetings of this season with the Ducks to improve to 21-22-2 in the all-time series.

Edmonton also has won seven straight home meetings from the Ducks since a 2-1 loss on February 24, 1999.
