ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Teemu Hartikainen gave Edmonton an early lead with his first two goals of the season, Devan Dubnyk made 32 saves and the Oilers beat Anaheim 2-1 on Sunday night in the Ducks' final home game of the season.
Teemu Selanne scored for the Ducks, and Jonas Hiller stopped 13 shots. Hiller, who has set franchise records with 70 starts and 71 appearances, finished his home slate 19-16-2.
Anaheim captain Ryan Getzlaf had a goal disallowed that would have tied it. Television replays confirmed that his slap shot from the top of the right circle got past Dubnyk a split-second after time expired in the second period.
A delayed penalty was about to be called against the Oilers when Getzlaf took the shot, and Eric Belanger spent the first 2 minutes of the third in the box for holding. Anaheim came up empty on the ensuing power play and finished 0 for 5 overall. Edmonton got its only power-play opportunity when Cam Fowler was sent off for tripping with 4:39 to play.

Few among the Ducks are more popular than George Parros, whose work on and off the ice over the past six seasons has made him a fan favorite.
But the enforcer's future with the team is cloudy now that he's become a regular healthy scratch over the last six weeks and has an expiring contract.
Unlike three years ago when the Ducks talked to him and got him locked up midway...

Teemu Selanne scored a goal in perhaps his final home game in Anaheim.
Selanne was actually outdone by another Teemu (Hartikainen), who tallied twice to lead the Edmonton Oilers to a 2-1 victory over the Ducks on Sunday.
Anaheim cut its two-goal disavantage in half with less than six minutes remaining in the first period when Selanne converted a pass from the bottom of the left...
Cam Fowler of the Anaheim Ducks was one of the higher profile rookies in the NHL last year. As an 18 year old he played a significant role with the Ducks. He showed some offensive prowess scoring 40 points from defence. The problem was he wasn’t much of a defensive player. He had the worst team and zone adjusted Corsi rating in the league last year. Anaheim Duck fans...
If you didn’t realize that it was April 1st this morning, the latest Oilers’ press release may have caught you off guard:
Setting an unprecedented sporting spectacle, Oilers President and COO Patrick LaForge announced Sunday the Edmonton Oilers issued a challenge to the Edmonton Eskimos to go head-to-head in a two-game, total-point series later this spring. In addition to bragging...
Fan Appreciation Night at the Honda Center and the final home game of the year in Anaheim. Possibly the final home game of Teemu Selanne's illustrious career. Clearly the Edmonton Oilers did not get the memo and spoiled any chance of Anaheim finishing off the season at home on a high note by earning a 2-1 victory over the Ducks. There did seem to be a memo stating that...

Imagine growing up in Southern California; the land of sun, surf and hockey. Anaheim Ducks prospect Emerson Etem is the latest name to be added to an ever-increasing list of players from the United States’ left coast.
Etem grew up in Long Beach, a beach city located in Los Angeles County. It’s an area more...
Oilers beat Ducks (no April fools joke) 2-1
Three first period goals and all scored by a Teemu, this was an NHL first in what may have been Teemu Selanne’s last home game as a member of the Anaheim Ducks. While fans filled the lower bowl with signs asking for one more year, Selanne remained mum on the subject.

The Pacific Division is a strong one this season with four teams within two points of each other. And then there are the Ducks. Not even close as a result of a really bad first half of the season.The Ducks could have put a crimp in Phoenix's season by defeating them, but instead, the Coyotes demonstrated why they have a good chance at winning the division and doing well in...
It's safe to say that Teemu Selanne will get the biggest cheers during the Anaheim Ducks' home finale Sunday night.
Selanne has not yet committed to returning for the 2012-13 season as he takes the ice at home for the final time this season when the Ducks meet the Edmonton Oilers.
The veteran winger will turn 42 in July but continues to be productive, leading Anaheim (33...
