Devan Dubnyk was pulled in the third period after giving up four goals on 15 shots for the Oilers, who have dropped three straight. Nikolai Khabibulin stopped all seven shots he faced the rest of the way.

The Ducks got the only goal they needed just 34 seconds in when Jason Blake used a toe drag at the left circle to get open and fired the puck down low where Selanne tipped it home. With 4:36 left in the second, the Ducks took a 2-0 lead as Dan Sexton let loose a shot on net from the top of the left circle that McMillan redirected into the net. Just 1:14 later, a turnover in the Edmonton end helped Corey Perry set up Ryan for a shot down low and a 3-0 lead. Perry again assisted on a Ryan goal 1:31 into the third period to account for the final score.
