Recap


OILERS 2, DUCKS 1: Teemu Hartikainen scored his first two goals of the season as Edmonton continued its road point streak and spoiled Anaheim's home finale.

Devan Dubnyk made 32 saves for the Oilers, who improved to 5-0-2 in their last seven road games.

Hartikainen stole the show from the other Teemu as the Honda Center crowd may have seen the last of Teemu Selanne, who is contemplating retirement.

Edmonton got on the board just 15 seconds into the contest as Jordan Eberle pounced on a turnover in the right faceoff circle and dished the puck to Hartikainen, who beat Jonas Hiller to the glove side from the slot for his first goal in 14 games this season.

Hartikainen doubled the lead at 6:04 of the first, completing his first career two-goal performance by tipping defenseman Ryan Whitney's shot from the left point past Hiller.

Anaheim halved the deficit with less than six minutes remaining when Selanne converted a pass from the bottom of the left circle by Niklas Hagman for his third goal in four games. Selanne is Anaheim's all-time leader in games, goals, assists and points.

Hiller stopped 13 shots for the Ducks, who had won five straight meetings with the Oilers.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Hagman's assist was his 300th career point. ... The goal by Selanne was his 663rd, putting him one behind Philadelphia's Jaromir Jagr for 11th place on the all-time list. With 1,405 points, the "Finnish Flash" trails Dale Hawerchuk by four for 18th in league history. ... Anaheim went 21-18-2 on home ice. ... Edmonton's Ryan Nugent-Hopkins notched an assist for his 51st point, tying him with Colorado's Gabriel Landeskog for the rookie scoring lead.
