He was eased in as the Oilers had 10 of the first 11 shots on goal.

"Anytime you get one of your core players or key players back, regardless of position but maybe even more important in (goal) it's calming influence," coach Todd McLellan said. "I felt our team didn't panic tonight."

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jesse Puljujarvi also scored for Edmonton, which has alternated wins and losses for nine straight games dating to Dec. 2.

"We've been playing the right way the last five, six games and it seems like every other game we've been getting the result that we want," Lucic said.

Lucic gave the Oilers a 2-1 lead late in the second period with a quick shot from the slot after the puck squirted away from a battle between Ryan Suter and Leon Draisaitl.

Dumba scored with 5 minutes left for the Wild for his second career two-goal game. The defenseman has four goals in his past seven games.

A Talbot save during a scramble resulted in the Oilers first goal -- a short-handed tally -- when a rebound went directly to Zack Kassian in the defensive end. On a textbook 2-on-1, his perfect feed allowed Nugent-Hopkins to easily beat Stalock for his team-leading 13th goal.

"You give them six power-plays and then when you get your four and you don't take advantage of it and they're plus-1 on it then you're in trouble," Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said.

Dumba, who was caught deep on the Oilers goal, got redemption 4 minutes later as he blasted a feed from Mikael Granlund behind Talbot.

"Those two rolling pucks to the middle, they're tough to read coming off his stick. He does have a good one-timer when he gets it off," Talbot said.
