The Anaheim Ducks were on the road on Friday night, taking on the Edmonton Oilers in a battle of last-place teams. The Ducks took an early lead in the first period and never let up, racking up the goals en route to a 5-0 win.
Jason Blake opened the scoring at 8:00 in the first period with his first goal of the 2011-12 NHL season. That would be the entirely of the scoring in the opening period and, as it turned out, the only goal that Anaheim would ultimately need.
In the second period, Teemu Selanne picked up his 15th goal of the season on a power play at 1:46. Bobby Ryan added his 16th at 10:54. Corey Perry added his 19th of the season less than three minutes later.
The only scoring in the third period was Perry's second of the night and 20th of the season, coming at 17:18 on another power play. The five goals came on 33 shots on goal by the Ducks.
With the win, the Ducks improve to 14-22-7, with 35 points. The Oilers fall to 16-23-4, with 36 points.
