EDMONTON, ALBERTA (TICKER) —The Vancouver Canucks try to extend their franchise-record unbeaten streak to 12 games when they visit the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday at the Skyreach Centre.

Vancouver is 7-0-4 during the streak, including 2-0-1 on its four-game road trip.

On Thursday, defenseman Nolan Baumgartner scored his first NHL goal and set up another as the Canucks defeated St. Louis, 4-2, to set a new team record for its longest unbeaten streak. Vancouver won 10 straight games from November 9-30 and went 5-0-5 from March 5-25, 1977.

Artem Chubarov, Brendan Morrison and Matt Cooke also scored against St. Louis.

The Canucks are 4-0-2 in their last six road contests since a 3-2 loss at Nashville on January 21.

Edmonton is 1-5-0-1 in its last seven games and capped a 1-3-0-1 road trip with a 6-2 setback at Detroit on Thursday.

Rookie Jani Rita and Todd Marchant scored but Tommy Salo was pulled midway through the second period after giving up his fourth goal in 20 shots.

The Canucks are 3-0-1 against the Oilers this season, including a pair of wins here.
