EDMONTON, Alberta, April 6 (UPI) -- Devan Dubnyk made 26 saves Tuesday in the Edmonton Oilers' 2-0 shutout of high-flying Vancouver.

Roberto Luongo had 20 saves for Vancouver.

Ryan Jones and Magnus Paajarvi scored Edmonton's two goals, both on power plays. Jones tipped in a shot by Jordan Eberle with 3 seconds left in the first period to make it 1-0. Paajarvi scored at 17:14 of the third period.

The Oilers had 22 shots on goal to Vancouver's 26.
