ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Anaheim Ducks roster is an injury-plagued mess, and they havent won a game by more than one goal in nearly seven weeks.The Ducks are still leading the entire NHL, thanks to a team-wide tenacity that the Edmonton Oilers just couldnt match.Matt Beleskey scored his 14th goal and Frederik Andersen made 21 saves in Anaheims fifth consecutive victory, 2-1 over the spiraling Oilers on Wednesday night.Ryan Kesler also scored for the Ducks, who held off last-place Edmontons late charge for their eighth win in 10 games. Anaheim (19-6-5) is three points ahead of Detroit in the overall standings despite the absence of top goal-scorer Corey Perry, who has the clubs latest major injury.We have a lot of good players on this team, and experience makes players better, said Kesler, who has 10 goals in 30 games with his new team. When guys go down, guys have opportunities, and they make the most of it. We dont let much define us in here when we deal with adversity — or the mumps.The Ducks last 12 victories were by just one goal, and they hung on to that slim lead yet again after Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored early in the third for Edmonton, which has lost 13 of 14.I think if you want to win championships, you have to be a good defensive team and you have to win close games, said defenceman Hampus Lindholm, whose sublime outlet pass set up Keslers goal. We can always be better, but we did enough to get a win.The Ducks won their second straight game without Perry, who is out until January with a sprained knee. Major injuries have been commonplace this season for Anaheim, which has already lost 192 man-games with a quarter of its opening-night roster on the injured list.Theres definitely a lot of opportunity out there, and were just trying to take advantage of it, said Beleskey, who is tied for seventh in the NHL in goals.Former Ducks goalie Viktor Fasth stopped 32 shots for the Oilers (7-17-5), who are tied with Carolina for the fewest points in the NHL.We played a good road game, Fasth said. Freddy was good in net at the other end, but I still think we could have a little more traffic in front of him and make it harder for him. ... Its small things, and we have to look at those small details to become better. Weve got to start winning.After Anaheim took an early 2-0 lead, Andersen hung onto it with a series of sharp saves. The Danish goalie even earned an assist on Keslers goal.Edmonton has just one victory since Nov. 9 and has already fallen 24 points behind Anaheim in the Western Conference race.Third game in four nights, and we had the ability to stay in the game, Oilers coach Dallas Eakins said. Its hard to really single out anybody for a bad night. I thought our guys worked hard against a team that had been sitting here waiting for us for a few days.Beleskey put the Ducks ahead during a first-period power play, converting a one-timer after sharp passes from Kyle Palmieri and Rickard Rakell.Midway through the second period, Lindholm sent a long pass to Kesler, who outskated Taylor Hall and beat Fasth with a clean wrist shot. Kesler has four goals in three games after a nine-game drought.NOTES: The teams meet again in Edmonton on Friday. The Ducks played road games in Minnesota and Winnipeg last week before flying home for this game — and then starting a five-game Canadian road trip. ... Rakell has assists in both games since his return from a demotion to the AHL. The Swede had just three points in Anaheims first 17 games. ... Anaheim hasnt won a game by more than one goal since Oct. 24.

Bourque leads the Canadiens with four goals through six games of the playoffs but was forced to miss Mondays practice with the flu. You can listen to the game live on TSN Radio 690 in Montreal or on TSN.ca/Montreal. Tuesdays skate was optional with defencemen Andrei Markov and P.K. Subban, forwards Thomas Vanek, Max Pacioretty and David Desharnais as well as goaltender Carey Price among those who elected to skip the skate. The series shifts to Montreal after the Canadiens and Bruins split the first two games in Boston. Facing the prospect of a two-game hole in the conference semis, the Bruins sent everything they could at Carey Price on Saturday. One shot knuckled into the ice and skipped past Price to tie the game. Barely two minutes later, Price couldnt get all the way over to stop Reilly Smith. Smith scored the go-ahead marker during a four-goal flurry to end the third period as Boston came back to beat Montreal, 5-3, in Game 2 on Saturday after dropping Game 1 in double overtime. The Bruins rebounded from Thursdays Game 1 loss, when P.K. Subban scored on a Montreal power play 4:17 into the second overtime, and they rallied from a 3-1 deficit in the second meeting with 13 1/2 minutes to play. "Weve been a strong third period team the entire year," said Smith. "We started getting bounces. ... It ended up working out great, but its tough when youre relying on the third period to come back." After Thomas Vanek scored his second goal of the game for Montreal -- both on deflections from Subban -- Dougie Hamilton beat Price with a high wrist shot from the point at 10:56 of the third off a pass from Brad Marchand. Just over three minutes later, Patrice Bergeron picked a loose puck off the wall, and his harmless shot from the right boards looked like it had little chance of going into until it took that funky hop next to defenseman Francis Bouillon and several feet in front of Price, going in over his shoulder.dddddddddddd Smiths winner with 3:32 left came after a cross-ice pass from Torey Krug was tipped by Brendan Gallagher, slowing it down before it reached Smith in the right circle for his near-side wrist shot. "They poured it on at the end of the game," said Price. "I thought they got pretty lucky. They were playing desperate ... and they found a way to put it in the net." Milan Lucic added an empty-netter and Daniel Paille scored earlier for the top-seeded Bruins. Tuukka Rask made 25 saves for Boston, which also lost Game 1 to Detroit in the first round, then won the next four to advance to the second round for the fifth time in six years. The Bruins, Stanley Cup winners in 2011, made it to the Cup Finals for the second time in three seasons last spring before bowing out to Chicago in six games. Mike Weaver had a goal for Montreal and Price gave up four on 34 shots. He had 25 saves on 26 shots in the first two periods. "I thought we put ourselves in a position where we thought we could take the win," said Subban. "But its very tough to go into an opponents building and steal two games in the playoffs. Its not an easy thing to do. And unless you play a full 60 (minutes) youre not going to be able to do it. We didnt play a full 60 today." The Original Six rivals are meeting in the playoffs for the 34th time. The Canadiens are 24-9 in the previous 33 series, but the Bruins have won the last two in 2008 and 2011. Game 4 is set for Thursday in Montreal. The Bruins and Habs split two meetings at the Bell Centre during the 2013-14 regular season, but Boston has claimed four of the past six road encounters in this series.
