In Winnipeg, Edmonton, led by Wayne Gretzky's record-tying performance, swept into the Campbell Conference finals by completing a four-game sweep. Gretzky scored three goals -- two short-handed -- and had four assists for the defending Stanley Cup champions.

Edmonton, unbeaten in the playoffs this season, will play the winner of the Chicago-Minnesota series.

Gretzky tied his own record for points in a playoff game (seven). He first achieved that total April 17, 1983, at Calgary.

After Edmonton center Mark Messier scored at 3:29 of the third period, Jari Kurri scored his third goal of the game, assisted by Gretzky, at 5:35.

Gretzky scored his third goal on his second shot at an empty net at 10:21.

Gretzky's two short-handed goals tied a playoff mark set by Toronto's Dave Keon in 1963 and Bryan Trottier of the Islanders in 1980 and Gretzky in 1983.

Gretzky scored twice, including a short-handed goal, to give the Oilers a 2-1 lead after the first period.

After Jets defenseman Randy Carlyle opened the scoring at the 53-second mark, Gretzky slipped the puck between the post and the pads of goalie Brian Hayward on an unassisted effort at 5:20.

At 12:22, while Winnipeg had a five-minute man advantage, Gretzky broke across the Jets' blueline and fired a 20-foot slap shot to the stick side.

Gretzky set up Kurri for two quick goals in the second period.
