EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) -- Two divisional opponents looking to end five-game winless streaks meet at the Rexall Centre Wednesday night as the Edmonton Oilers host the Minnesota Wild.

Edmonton has been outscored, 20-9, in going 0-4-1 in its last five games. The Oilers have lost three in a row and have been held to one goal each time.

Rookie Jarret Stoll, defenseman Marc-Andre Bergeron and Radek Dvorak have accounted for the goals in the last three games. The latest defeat came against the San Jose Sharks, 2-1, on Sunday.

Minnesota is in last place in the Northwest Division - three points behind Edmonton - and is 1-4-0 in five games since a 6-2 win at Pittsburgh on November 19.

The Wild have scored just six goals during their second 0-4-1 stretch of the season. They snapped a four-game losing streak with Sunday's 1-1 tie vs. Anaheim as Wes Walz scored and Manny Fernandez made 32 saves.

Edmonton is 12-0-2-2 vs. the Wild, including 6-0-1-1 at home. In the first meeting, the Oilers posted a 2-0 win at Minnesota on November 13 as Ty Conklin stopped 22 shots for his first NHL shutout and Ethan Moreau and Mike York scored first-period goals.
