The surprising Edmonton Oilers are two victories away from advancing to the National Hockey League's championship series after beating the Anaheim Mighty Ducks 3-1.

Oilers' goalie Dwayne Roloson stopped 33 shots while his teammates scored a goal in each period Sunday in Anaheim.

Eighth-seeded Edmonton now leads the best-of-seven Western Conference finals two games to none, and will host games Tuesday and Thursday.

In the East, the Buffalo Sabres visit the Carolina Hurricanes Monday, after taking the series opener 3-2 Saturday.
