Horcoff, Souray shine as Oilers blank Flames

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -- Shawn Horcoff and Sheldon Souray each

had a goal and two assists and the Edmonton Oilers beat the

Calgary Flames, 5-1, on Friday night, giving Chicago the No. 4

seed in the Western Conference playoffs.

Ales Kotalik, Steve MacIntyre and Patrick O'Sullivan also scored

for the Oilers, eliminated from playoff contention Tuesday

night.

Jeff Drouin-Deslauriers made 31 saves for the Oilers, out of the

playoffs for the third straight year, in his first start since

Nov. 30. Dwayne Roloson started the previous 36 games.

Michael Cammalleri scored for the Flames, two points behind

Vancouver for the Northwest Division lead. Calgary played the

game with only 15 skaters because of a recent series of

injuries.

Kotalik opened the scoring with his 20th goal with 5:39 left in

the second, MacIntyre made it 2-0 with 3:55 to go in the period,

and Horcoff scored his 17th at 12:06 of the third.

After Cammalleri made it 3-1 at 12:42 of the third with his 37th

of the season, O'Sullivan added his 16th for Edmonton, and

Souray capped the scoring on a power play with his 23rd goal.

The teams will meet again Saturday night in Calgary in the

regular-season finale.
