TORONTO (TICKER) —The Toronto Maple Leafs try to extend their season-high winning streak to six games on Tuesday when they host the Edmonton Oilers, who open a five-game road trip at Air Canada Centre.

The Maple Leafs have won five straight games following a three-game losing streak. They are trying to win six in a row for the first time since the 1999-2000 season.

Toronto followed an unbeaten four-game road trip with a 3-1 home victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday.

Mats Sundin scored twice and Ed Belfour stopped 32 shots for the Maple Leafs, which has scored 20 goals and allowed only seven during their winning streak.

Toronto has lost just twice in its last 16 home games (13-2-1-0) and is 17-9-2-0 at Air Canada Centre this season.

Edmonton has lost consecutive games following a three-game unbeaten streak and was held scoreless in Saturday’s 2-0 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Oilers failed to score despite seven power-play opportunities and are just 1-for-28 with the man advantage in the last six games.

Edmonton’s Mike Comrie returned from a broken right thumb after missing 13 straight games played just 14 minutes.

The Oilers have just two wins in their last 10 road games (2-3-2-3) and 11-9-3-3 away from Skyreach Centre this season.

Edmonton posted a 3-2 home victory over Toronto on December 28 after Todd Marchant scored with just 25 seconds left in overtime.
