Jesse Joensuu and Will Action scored and Devan Dubnyk made 28 saves to help the Edmonton Oilers edge the Winnipeg Jets, 2-1, at Rexall Place.

Chris Thorburn scored for the Jets, who have lost three straight.

Edmonton erased a 1-0 deficit 2:39 into the second period when Tyler Pitlick put the puck in front of the net for a hard-charging Joensuu to direct past Jets goalie Edward Pasquale. It was Joensuu's third goal of the preseason.

The Oilers then took the lead at 9:22 of the second, when Acton deflected an Anton Belov point shot through Pasquale's legs.

"My focus has been to take care of my game every day and hopefully the rest takes care of itself," Acton said.

Both teams finished 0-for-7 on the power play.

"There was a lot of special teams," Jets coach Claude Noel said. "Our penalty kill was decent. I didn't think our power play was very cohesive. I didn't think we moved the puck that great. It was kind of a scrambly game. On our part, we didn't generate a lot of offense. It was a tough night for us."

Material from wire services was used in this report.
