ST. PAUL, Minnesota (Ticker) -- The Minnesota Wild can stretch their team-record unbeaten streak to 10 games Friday night as they host the Edmonton Oilers in the back end of a home-and-home set.

Minnesota is 4-0-5 in its last nine games but has not won in nearly two weeks. Since their 5-2 win home win over Columbus on December 20, the Wild have skated to four straight ties.

Minnesota joined San Jose and Phoenix as the only teams with at least 10 ties as it battled to a 2-2 deadlock at Edmonton on Tuesday.

Defensemen Willie Mitchell and Nick Schultz tallied for the Wild, who have scored 26 goals during this run.

The Oilers have scored just three goals since erupting for six Saturday at Vancouver. They are just 2-5-4 in their last 11 games and 3-10-5 since November 20.

Mike York scored twice against Minnesota Tuesday and has three goals in his last two games.

Despite going winless in the last three meetings with the Wild, the Oilers lead the all-time series, 12-1-3-2, going 6-0-1-1 in Minnesota.
