EDMONTON, ALBERTA (TICKER) —The Edmonton Oilers try to extend their unbeaten streak to five games on Monday when they host the struggling Toronto Maple Leafs, who open a three-game road trip at the Skyreach Centre.

The Oilers are 3-0-1 in their last four after losing seven of their previous eight games. They are trying to go five games without a loss for the first time since a seven-game unbeaten streak from November 19-December 3.

Edmonton extended its road unbeaten streak to three games with a 4-1 victory over the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim on Friday.

Rookie Fernando Pisani had his first two-goal game and Todd Marchant scored the go-ahead goal for Edmonton, which has taken a five-point lead over ninth-place Nashville for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

The Oilers snapped a four-game home winless slide with a 2-1 win over San Jose on Tuesday. They are 15-9-4-4 at the Skyreach Center this season.

Toronto snapped a three-game losing streak with a 3-3 tie against the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday. Owen Nolan scored twice in his first game with the Maple Leafs, who tied despite being outshot 33-19.

Toronto is winless in its last four games (0-3-1) and is trying to avoid its first five-game winless skid of the season.

The Maple Leafs have lost three straight road games and are 16-14-2-1 away from home this season.

Edmonton has won both meetings with Toronto this season, including a 3-2 overtime victory here on December 28.
