For the Anaheim Ducks, Edmonton's Rexall Place is the next best thing to home.

The Ducks made it eight wins in a row in Edmonton as Jonas Hiller stopped 33 shots for his 100th NHL victory and Ryan Getzlaf set up four goals in 5-0 victory against the struggling Oilers on Friday night.

Corey Perry scored twice for the Ducks (14-22-7), who are 4-0-1 in their last five games and 8-1-0 overall in their last nine against the Oilers.

Hiller enjoyed the milestone win even more than his second shutout of the season and 13th of his career.

"That probably means more than the shutout tonight," he said of his 100th win. "It's great to get up to 100 wins. I always said I don't want to just be here to be here -- I want to be part of the team and shot what I can do. I think 100 wins definitely helps that."

The Ducks got points from 10 players as they continue on their best stretch of the season under new coach Bruce Boudreau.

"Points have been tough to come by for everybody," Getzlaf said. "The more scoring we can have in games like this, the better. It adds a little bit of confidence to our group.

"We've worked really hard [the last few games], and the numbers have shown it. We haven't allowed many goals against, and the wins have come. We have to go out there and outwork the opposition, and we've been doing that as of late."

Selanne said the Ducks played their best game of the season.

"I didn't see one bad play out there today," he said. "It was overall a very solid effort by everybody. It was the best game we've played all season. We're gaining so much confidence as a team right now.

"The last four or five games, that's the way we were supposed to have played all season. Hopefully we can keep pushing, and you never know."

The Oilers (16-23-4) are headed the other way -- they've dropped five in a row and have lost 12 of their last 14 -- and coach Tom Renney was not impressed with his team's work ethic.

"I'm not sure what Anaheim did in the game was all that spectacular. We were just brutal," he said. "They don't feel real good about themselves at the moment and they shouldn't.

"The thing I don't like is that I don't see ice bags and guys sore from really gutting it out and doing everything they possibly can to win a hockey game."

Jason Blake, who missed most of the first three months of the season with a serious wrist injury, opened the scoring eight minutes into the first period when he took Cam Fowler's pass and ripped a shot from the slot past Nikolai Khabibulin.

Teemu Selanne made it 2-0 at 1:46 of the second period when he swung behind the net and backhanded the puck in front, where it hit Khabibulin and bounced behind him for a power-play goal. Selanne, who assisted on Perry's second goal, has 15 goals and 43 points in 43 games at age 41.

The sellout crowd of 16,839 thought the Oilers had gotten on the board a few seconds later when Anton Lander lifted the puck over Hiller -- but the goal was waved off because the whistle had blown.

Bobby Ryan ended Khabibulin's night at 10:54 of the middle period when he took a nice setup from Getzlaf in the slot and beat the goaltender with a stoppable shot. But backup Devan Dubnyk fared no better -- he stopped Perry's breakaway just over three minutes later, only to see last season's Hart Trophy winner knock home the rebound.

"Poor response to falling behind," Renney said. "Tonight we weren't very good in any department."

Perry's power-play goal with 2:42 completed the scoring as the Oilers' fast start in October continues to fade under a plethora of opposition goals.

"We have to find a way to play a better defensive game and the offense will come from there," forward Ryan Jones said.
