The Edmonton Oilers are giving 1 week 3 days ago #688

WINNIPEG Custom Nashville Predators Jerseys , Manitoba —new meaning to the term “road warriors.”After opening the season in Sweden against New Jersey before crossing the Atlantic Ocean to play the Boston Bruins and the New York Rangers — not to mention finishing their pre-season with a game in Germany — the Oilers will wrap up their longest road trip in franchise history, distance-wise, with a tilt against the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night. Prior to flying into town on Tuesday morning, the Oilers have flown a total of nearly 11,000 miles.Even though they defeated the Rangers 2-1 on Saturday at Madison Square Garden, the Oilers have scored just five goals thus far this season and captain Connor McDavid, who has led the league in points each of the past two seasons, has figured in on all of them. Article continues below ...“We’ve only scored five goals in three games. When offence isn’t there www.officialdevils.com , you need to check. I thought we did a great job finally getting a win in a tough building,” McDavid said. “It wasn’t the prettiest way to win a game but we needed to win a game.”The Jets, meanwhile, are hoping to avoid their giveaway-prone performance against Carolina on Sunday night, a game that they managed to win 3-1 despite leaving backup goalie Laurent Brossoit high and dry for extended periods and being outshot 18-6 in the first period and 43-25 overall. It was Brossoit’s first win as a member of the Jets after spending parts of four seasons with the Oilers. (He won’t get the chance to start against his old mates as coach Paul Maurice has given the crease to Connor Hellebuyck.)The good news for the Jets was their No. 2 line may be starting to get on track. Center Bryan Little scored the winner with his first of the season with just a couple of minutes left on the clock on Sunday while his right winger, Patrik Laine, scored his second of the campaign on the power play to open the scoring.Jets captain Blake Wheeler said there was no panic in the Jets dressing room after the second period of the still-scoreless game.“There was no coming to Jesus speech, we didn’t need to reinvent the wheel New Jersey Devils T-Shirts Authentic ,” he told The Winnipeg Sun. “There’s an element of patience and being positive five games into the season that you know you just stay with it and find a way to get two points. (Monday) we’ll try to get better (in practice). Hopefully, the next game will be quicker.”The Jets will have one less player in the press box after forward Marko Dano, who was acquired a couple of years ago from Chicago in exchange for captain Andrew Ladd, was picked up on waivers by Colorado on Monday morning. The first round pick in 2013 hadn’t played for the Jets this season. He scored 10 goals over parts of three seasons for the Jets. EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) David Poile now has the most wins in NHL history as a general manager.Viktor Arvidsson scored a pair of goals as Poile’s Western Conference-leading Nashville Predators rallied for a 4-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night. The victory was the 1,320th in Poile’s career, surpassing Glen Sather, the front-office leader for the Oilers’ dynasty of the 1980s who later took over the New York Rangers in 2000.”It’s big. It’s a big two points in the standings and it’s a big accomplishment for David and his family to be the winningest GM in the history of the league New Jersey Devils Hoodies Authentic ,” Arvidsson said. ”It’s huge for him.”Scott Hartnell and Austin Watson also scored for the Predators, who have won six straight. Pekka Rinne made 34 saves.”It’s not something that we want to make it a habit of, but I think it was a couple of bad bounces that put us in the hole,” Watson said of the need to mount a comeback. ”I think we have that confidence as a group that we know that we can score goals if we stick to what we’re talking about and stick to what (coach Peter Laviolette) is preaching, then we’re going to be able to score goals and come back in the hockey game and we were able to do that.”Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl scored for the Oilers, who have lost two straight.Nashville was trailing 2-0 when Nick Bonino made a touch pass to Hartnell in front, and he beat Cam Talbot for his 12th of the year with 3:32 left in the second period.Arvidsson tied it with 10 seconds left in the second when he converted on a Filip Forsberg pass on a 2-on-1 opportunity.Arvidsson got his second of the game and 24th of the season with 5:08 remaining in the third period as he batted home the rebound from a shot by Forsberg.Nashville put the game away two minutes later as Watson scored into a wide-open net.McDavid opened the scoring 11 minutes into the first period with his 29th goal of the season. He showed some patience in front of the net, waiting for Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne to commit before scoring.Draisaitl beat Rinne with a long wrist shot on a power play to give the Oilers a 2-0 lead with 53 seconds left in the first.NOTES: It was the last of three games between the teams this season New Jersey Devils Hats Authentic , with Nashville winning the previous two.
