(AP) — Mike Smith made 39 saves for his second consecutive shutout and 44th overall, and the Edmonton Oilers beat the Vegas Golden Knights 4-0 on Saturday.

Edmonton moved six points ahead of Los Angeles for second place in the Pacific Division — and seven points clear of Vegas. The Oilers are 14-3-2 in their last 19 games.

The 40-year-old Smith made 30 saves Thursday night in a 4-0 home victory over Nashville. Evander Kane had a goal and an assist and Kris Russell, Cody Ceci and Warren Foegele also scored. Logan Thompson made 32 saves for Vegas.

The Golden Knights have lost three of five.
