EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) John Gibson made 21 saves for his second consecutive shutout and fourth of the season and the Anaheim Ducks extended their winning streak to three games with a 1-0 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night.
Ryan Getzlaf scored for the Ducks, also 1-0 winners in Calgary on Tuesday night. They are 4-1-1 in their last six games, while the Oilers have lost four in a row and seven of their last eight.
Getzlaf scored on a power play midway through the first period. The puck came loose during a scramble in front and Getzlaf was able to score just his third goal of the season on a backhand shot over goalie Cam Talbot.
Talbot finished with 30 saves.
The Ducks kept pressing, but Talbot was able to keep it a one-goal game, notably making a highlight-reel glove save on a point-blank shot by Sami Vatanen with 5 minutes left in the second period.
Anaheim held a 25-14 edge in shots after 40 minutes.
Edmonton came close with the extra attacker late in the third, but Shawn Horcoff hooked down Teddy Purcell in front to prevent a goal and the Ducks were solid in front of Gibson with the Oilers pressing on the power play.
