SAN JOSE, California (Ticker) -- The Edmonton Oilers can tie a season high with their fourth straight victory Sunday night when they visit the San Jose Sharks, who can move into second place in the Western Conference.

Edmonton's lone four-game winning streak was from November 13-20.

Edmonton has gained a point in 11 straight games (6-0-2-3). With eight games to play, the Oilers are three points behind St. Louis for the eighth and final playoff spot.

Edmonton defeated Nashville, 5-4, on Sunday as defenseman Igor Ulanov scored with 91 seconds remaining in a wild third period. Ethan Moreau also tallied twice and reached the 20-goal plateau for the first time in his career.

San Jose leads Dallas by three points in the Pacific Division. But the Sharks also trail Colorado by just one point for the second seed in the West.

The Sharks extended their unbeaten streak to five games (4-0-1) with a 4-2 win at Anaheim on Friday. Alex Korolyuk scored two goals in the third period as San Jose scored four unanswered goals.

The Sharks are 4-0-3 in their last seven home games in the series.
