The Vancouver Canucks aim to stay perfect on their current homestand and extend their longest winning streak of the season on Friday night as they play host to the Edmonton Oilers. The Canucks have taken the first three contests of their five-game residency that wraps on Saturday versus Boston. That success at home has pushed Vancouvers overall winning streak to five in a row, the longest for the club since it took six straight from March 19-28 of last season. The Canucks got solid goaltending in winning games on back-to-back nights earlier this week. Roberto Luongo posted 28 saves in Sundays 3-1 victory over Colorado and backup Eddie Lack followed up with a 31-save shutout the following night to best Carolina 2-0. Lack, a 25-year-old rookie, was making his first career start at home and improved to 4-2-0 with a 2.08 goals against average in eight games (6 starts) following his first NHL shutout. "I was real excited going into tonights game, playing my first home game and everything. Just tried to do whatever I could to make the team come out with a W here," said Lack. "The guys did an unbelievable job." Christopher Tanev scored 3:35 into the game, but the Canucks didnt find the back of the net again until Jannik Hansens empty-net tally with 1:14 to play. The tight score, though, didnt get to Lack and left coach John Tortorella praising his composure. "The thing I like most about Eddie is just his presence. I think he settles the team down," Tortorella said. "Theres not a lot of extra movement in his game. He moves the puck really well. ... He doesnt get rattled." Despite the shutout, Tortorella is expected to go back to Luongo tonight. Vancouvers No. 1 netminder is 24-11-3 with a tie, three shutouts and a 2.37 GAA in 40 career meetings with the Oilers, all but one of those starts. Luongo made 21 saves in a 6-2 home victory over Edmonton on Oct. 5 in the first of five meetings this season between the Pacific Division residents. The victory was the Canucks eighth in the past 12 meetings overall and 10th in the last 12 encounters in Vancouver. The Oilers kick off a four-game road trip tonight after falling 4-2 to the Boston Bruins on Thursday. The defeat gave Edmonton a 2-2-1 mark on a five- game homestand. It was a rough night for Devan Dubnyk, who gave up the first of three first- period goals to the Bruins on a long shot from the blue line. Dubnyk stopped 15 shots in the frame, but was replaced by Jason LaBarera to start the second and he halted all 12 shots faced in relief. "I dont know if we won a battle in the first period," Oilers coach Dallas Eakins said. "I dont know if we were, Jeez, the Bruins are in town. Theyre one of the top teams in the League. We need to play cautious. You cant play cautious against anybody. Youll get killed if you give them too much time and space. "But even though we werent winning the battles, I didnt think the first period was as bad as the shot clock showed or the score was. I still felt we had a chance if we could get a goal." David Perron got the Oilers back into the game with two goals in the second period, but Edmontons offense was silenced from there and Boston iced the game with an empty-net tally. Perron now has 14 goals and 27 points on the season, getting six goals and nine points in his past seven games. It is unknown if Eakins will go back to Dubnyk tonight or give LaBarbera his first start since Oct. 26. Dubnyk is 5-5-3 with a 2.48 GAA and two shutouts in 14 games (12 starts) versus Vancouver, but was lifted early in the loss on Oct. 5 after allowing five goals on 31 shots faced in just under 34 minutes of work. Like he did last night, LaBarbera stopped all 12 shots faced in relief and is 4-2-1 with a 2.14 GAA in nine games against Vancouver with six starts.

EDMONTON -- The Edmonton Oilers are the latest victims of Alex Ovechkins torrid goal-a-game pace. Ovechkin scored his 10th goal of the season and added an assist as the Washington Capitals won their third in a row, defeating the Oilers 4-1 on Thursday. "Hes a goal scorer," said Washington head coach Adam Oates. "Theyre kind of broken plays and before you know it, with his release, theyre tough on goalies." Ovechkin not only has 10 goals in 10 games this season, he has 32 in his last 31 games dating back to last year. Joel Ward, Jason Chimera and Nicklas Backstrom also scored for the Capitals (5-5-0), who have won four of their last five after a 1-4-0 start to the season. Ovechkin said Backstroms early third-period goal was really the backbreaker. "That was a big goal," he said. "We scored that goal and then they stopped playing, then they gave us a lot of opportunities three-on-two and three-on-three. Its a good situation and we have to take advantage of those kind of chances, dont give them anything. I think we played well and (goaltender Braden) Holtby played well today, too." Justin Schultz responded for the Oilers (3-7-1), who saw a two-game winning streak snapped and have now lost six of their last eight. Oilers captain Andrew Ference said his team was going good through the first two periods, but didnt have the same intensity in the third. "We worked hard in the first 40 minutes and in the third period you are supposed to cash in," he said. "You have guys who are worn down and have had extended shifts and we didnt enjoy the payoff of those first two periods of pressure. Its disappointing not to see the same consistent quick tempo, quick transition ... there was way more gliding in the third. It just doesnt work." Edmonton head coach Dallas Eakins agreed that his team just couldnt keep up with the Caps for the full game. "I thought we had some good offensive-zone play until that third period," he said. "I really believe they were trying to step on the gas, there was just no gas left. I give a lot of credit to their goaltender. He made some great saves. We had some good looks, we just couldnt get it past him." The Capitals came close to starting the scoring seven minutes into the first period as Ovechkin tipped a shot that trickled past Oilers goalie Devan Dubnyk and was rolling into the net before he dove back and covered up the puck. Ovechkin wasnt about to be stopped a second time, however, as he scored his league-leading 10th goal of the season in 10 games with just under twwo minutes left in the opening period.dddddddddddd A face-off deep in Oilers territory came back to the Washington captain and he deposited a quick wrist shot up high past Dubnyk. Edmonton had a glorious chance to tie the game midway through the second period as a hard rebound came out to Jordan Eberle in front but he shot it wide of the empty net with Holtby trying to get back into position. Washington went up 2-0 with four minutes to play in the second as Ward stood in the paint in front of the Oilers net to screen Dubnyk and was able to direct in a John Carlson point shot. Edmonton out-shot the Capitals 22-18 through 40 minutes. Washington extended its lead to three goals just over a minute into the third on a nice tic-tac-toe passing play. Marcus Johansson made a nice pass through the crease to Backstrom, who scored his second of the season and 11th point. The Capitals made it 4-0 with seven minutes remaining after a turnover allowed a two-on-one and Chimera, who was originally credited with Wards earlier goal, picked the corner on a snap shot. The Oilers broke Holtbys shutout bid with 2:04 remaining as a David Perron pass gave Schultz a clear lane and he scored on a backhand. "We did some good things, we were a little bit shaky in the first," Oates said. "But as the game went along, we did a better job playing the way were supposed to play." The Oilers head right back out on the road for a two-game trip, starting Saturday afternoon in Phoenix. The Capitals play the third game of their five-game trip in Calgary on Saturday. Notes: It was the second of two meetings between the teams, having already faced each other on Oct. 14 in Washington, where the Capitals won 4-2. It was Washingtons first visit to Rexall Place in Edmonton in nearly two years since the Oilers won 2-1 on Oct. 27, 2011. ... Washington came into the game having lost eight of its past nine in Edmonton. ... Capitals defenceman Mike Green was back to taking regular shifts after being benched midway through the third period of his teams last game in Winnipeg. It was the first game all season he failed to log at least 20 minutes of ice time. ... The Capitals are a relatively healthy team, their biggest absence being defenceman Jack Hillen, who is recovering from leg surgery. Conversely, the Oilers are beat up, missing star forward Taylor Hall, who is expected to be out for a month with a knee injury. Also out of the lineup are forwards Sam Gagner (broken jaw), Jesse Joensuu (back), Ryan Smyth (groin), Ryan Hamilton (knee) and Steve MacIntyre (knee).
