Sami Vatanen and Ryan Getzlaf each had a goal and an assist as the league-leading Anaheim Ducks beat the Edmonton Oilers 4-2 Friday night for their sixth straight win.

Kyle Palmieri and Nate Thompson also scored as the Ducks won for the ninth time in 11 games.

Tyler Pitlick and Jeff Petry scored for the Oilers, who have lost three in a row and 14 of their last 15.

Vatanen sent a wrist shot cleanly past Oilers goalie Viktor Fasth on a power play 5 minutes into the game for his eight goal of the season.

The Ducks made it 3-0 with two goals just 44 seconds apart to start the second period. Off the opening faceoff, Palmieri skated in alone through a confused-looking Oilers defense and scpred his fifth of the year just 7 seconds in. Getzlaf then cleanly beat Fasth with a quick shot for his ninth goal
