Oilers 2, Ducks 1

by Staff Writer / Anaheim Ducks
ANAHEIM, Calif. – Ethan Moreau and Raffi Torres each tallied second period goals and Dwayne Roloson stopped 32 shots to lead the Edmonton Oilers over the Ducks 2-1 in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals on Saturday night at the Arrowhead Pond.

With the victory, the Oilers won the Western Conference title and will now face either Carolina or Buffalo in the Stanley Cup Finals.

Francois Beauchemin got the Ducks on the scoreboard first with his third goal of the postseason at 7:30 of the first period.  The rookie defenseman rifled a slap shot past Roloson to give the Ducks a 1-0 lead.

The Oilers would take the lead in the second period and not look back.

Moreau opened the scoring for Edmonton 3:42 into the second stanza with his first goal of the playoffs.  After a scramble in front of JS Giguere, Moreau picked up a loose puck and fired it into the Anaheim net to tie the contest.

Raffi Torres got the eventual game-winner at 8:31 of the second period by tipping a Marc-Andre Bergeron shot behind his back and past Giguere for his third of the playoffs.
