(Sports Network) - The Columbus Blue Jackets try to end yet another losing streak tonight when they visit the Edmonton Oilers at Rexall Place.

A week ago the Jackets ended an eight-game losing streak and picked up their first win under new head coach Ken Hitchcock. Since then they have fallen to Vancouver and Calgary on the road, including Friday's 2-1 setback to the Flames. Jarome Iginla and Chuck Kobasew scored less than three minutes apart in the third period to lift the hosts.

Ron Hainsey had the lone goal for the Blue Jackets, who are 1-9-1 in their last 11 tries. Pascal Leclaire stopped 29-of-31 shots and is now winless in his last seven starts.

The Jackets play the third portion of a five-game road trip and will visit Colorado on Tuesday.

Edmonton, meanwhile, has lost its last two games. On Thursday the Oilers were pounded, 7-3, by visiting Colorado. Tyler Arnason tallied two goals and added an assist and Marek Svatos also scored two goals to lift the Avalanche.
