Andrew Cogliano and Francois Beauchemin each had a goal and an assist, and the Anaheim Ducks clinched their third straight Pacific Division title with a 5-1 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday night.

Corey Perry, Nate Thompson and Simon Despres also scored in the fourth straight win for the NHL-leading Ducks, who became the first team to wrap up a division race with their eighth victory in 10 games overall.

Frederik Andersen made 22 saves, and Jakob Silfverberg had a career-high three assists in a dominant effort by the Ducks, who lead Nashville by four points for home-ice advantage throughout the Western Conference playoffs.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored and Ben Scrivens stopped 22 shots for the 28th-place Oilers, whose three-game winning streak ended.

Anaheim swept the clubs' four-game season series.
