Oilers look to stay unbeaten at home

Nov 1, 2006 - 4:42 PM Nashville (7-3-1) at Edmonton (7-4-0) 9:00 pm EST

EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) -- The Edmonton Oilers have been like two different hockey clubs this season.

The Oilers are a perfect 6-0-0 at home but only 1-4-0 on the road. They will host the Nashville Predators on Wednesday.

After suffering a pair of road losses in which they were outscored, 12-4, the Oilers returned home and defeated the Washington Capitals, 4-0, on Saturday.

Joffrey Lupul and Ryan Smyth each led the Oilers with a goal and an assist while Dwayne Roloson made 19 stops in recording his first shutout of the season.

If the Oilers want to extend their home success, they have to beat a Nashville club that is playing outstanding hockey. The Predators are 7-0-1 in their last eight games.

Nashville got a 3-2 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday. Steve Sullivan scored the game-winner with just under six minutes left in the third period while Tomas Vokoun finished with 22 saves.

Alexander Radulov and defenseman Ryan Suter scored the other goals for Nashville, who got 22 saves from netminder Tomas Vokoun.

No one has shouted yet.
Be the first!
