EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) -- If the Ottawa Senators are going to win their fourth Northeast Division title, they will have to do it on the road.

Ottawa continues a five-game road trip Sunday night as it takes on the Edmonton Oilers, who have played in a NHL-record seven straight overtime contests.

The Senators are just one point behind first-place Boston for the division lead and play eight of their final 11 games on the road.

Ottawa is 2-1-0 on the trip, which began with Monday's win at Washington. On Saturday, the Senators bounced back from Thursday's loss in Calgary with a 2-1 triumph at Vancouver.

Captain Daniel Alfredsson scored with nine minutes left in the third period as Ottawa improved to 3-3-0 in its last six games. Marian Hossa scored his 32nd goal of the season and backup goaltender Martin Prusek stopped 19 shots as the Senators raised their road record to 16-12-4-1.

Edmonton is 10th in the Western Conference and sits six points behind St. Louis for the final playoff spot. The Oilers have 11 games remaining and are 2-0-2-3 in their last seven.

Edmonton has gained a point in its last eight home games (5-0-1-2). But at the same time, the Oilers are winless in their last three (0-0-1-2).

On Friday, the Oilers dropped a 4-3 decision to Vancouver. Petr Nedved scored twice, narrowly missing a hat trick.

Edmonton is 11-5-4 all-time against the Senators and 6-2-2 at home. On November 6 at the Corel Centre, Ethan Moreau and Fernando Pisani scored in a 2 1/2-minute span late in the second period as the Oilers rallied for a 3-3 tie.
