EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) -- The Edmonton Oilers try to stretch their unbeaten streak over the Columbus Blue Jackets to 10 games Tuesday night as they continue a five-game homestand.

Since a 2-1 home loss on November 2, 2001, the Oilers are 6-0-3 vs. the Blue Jackets. They were 3-0-1 vs. the Blue Jackets last season and are 1-0-2 vs. Columbus this season.

Edmonton opened the season series with a 4-3 overtime win here on October 30 and skated to a pair of ties at Nationwide Arena.

The Oilers are 10th in the Western Conference, five points behind Nashville and Los Angeles for the final playoff spot.

Edmonton has gained a point in nine straight games but has just four wins in that span. On Sunday, the Oilers snapped a four-game winless skid with a 3-1 win over Ottawa.

Radek Dvorak, Ethan Moreau and Raffi Torres scored in a span of seven minutes late in the second period.

Columbus has scored just 10 goals on a six-game losing streak and has opened a five-game road trip with losses at St. Louis and Minnesota.

The Blue Jackets took a 2-0 lead as Trevor Letowski extended his goal-scoring streak to three games. But they gave up two tallies with under three minutes remaining in the second and suffered their 17th one-goal loss of the season.
