After a disastrous homestand, the Edmonton Oilers are embarking on a three-game road trip that could present a perfect storm for a continued losing streak. Logan Paulsen Falcons Jersey . It begins tonight in Dallas, where the Oilers will try to overcome sustained struggles against the Stars while beating a Western Conference opponent for the first time this season. A five-game homestand extended Edmontons losing streak to 0-5-1, with Saturdays loss of the embarrassing variety, 7-1 to Chicago. The Oilers have matched their longest losing streak of last season and another defeat will give the team its worst slide since going 0-8-3 from March 8-31, 2011. Viktor Fasth will start in net for the Oilers. He has a 2-1-0 record with a 1.65 GAA in four games against Dallas. All three of Edmontons opponents on the trip are from the West, against which the Oilers are 0-10-1. It only gets more difficult after the Dallas matchup with stops in Nashville and St. Louis, but even the Stars (8-9-4) have dominated the Oilers (6-13-2) with 13 wins in 16 meetings. Edmonton hasnt given itself much of a chance with 23 goals in a 2-9-1 stretch. David Perron scored against the Blackhawks, but it was just his second in 21 games after scoring a career-high 28 a season ago. Fellow forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has gone four games without a point and has two in eight career games against Dallas. Weve got to find a way to not get too frustrated or else the negativity really seeps into your game, Nugent-Hopkins told the teams official website. It just makes things a lot worse and I know the past few years there have been instances where it has been like that. Weve shown a lot more promise this year than in the past couple of years, I know that for sure. Weve just got to find a way to get ourselves motivated and get back on track. The Stars were probably having similar thoughts after opening a five-game homestand with a third straight loss. Theyve since won two in a row, including Sundays 5-4 victory over Los Angeles. Theyll need more time to improve a 3-5-4 home record, and possibly have more success while playing with a lead after nearly blowing a 4-0 advantage. Dallas has allowed 17 goals in four games. Its hard to stand here and talk about how well we played for almost 40 minutes, Ruff told the teams official website. Weve got some guys that have to grab hold of moments in a game and be able to change it. Defenseman Jason Demers, acquired from San Jose on Friday, scored in his first game with the Stars, while Jamie Benn had two goals and an assist. Benn has three goals and three assists in three games. Kari Lehtonen faced 41 shots and allowed at least four goals for the third time in four games - a 2-1-0 stretch with a 4.17 goals-against average. Hes been considerably better against the Oilers with an 11-2-1 record and 1.92 GAA in 14 starts since joining the Stars. Ben Scrivens struggles have been far more sustained. Hes posted a 4.27 GAA in a 0-6-1 span and has allowed five goals in each of his past two games - he faced only 13 shots against the Blackhawks before being pulled in the second period - culminating in the firing of goaltender coach Frederic Chabot prior to the trip. Luke Gazdic is scheduled to make his season debut against his former organization.

Louis Cardinals for the National League Wild Card, are in the drivers seat as they open the final series of the regular season, but they face a large task in the form of the Philadelphia Phillies. http://www.thefaclonsshoponline.com/Isaiah-Oliver-Falcons-Jersey/ . - Anthony Beauvillier had the winning goal in the third period as the Shawinigan Cataractes edged the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies 2-1 on Wednesday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League play.The Oklahoma City Thunder will try to make it a competitive series against the San Antonio Spurs Sunday night when Game 3 of the Western Conference finals shifts to Chesapeake Energy Arena. The Thunder badly need a lift and they may get one in the return of Serge Ibaka. Ibaka, who missed the first two games and was expected to miss the entire postseason with a calf strain, improved significantly and will return. Watch the game on TSN starting at 8:30pm et/5:30pm pt. "The abundance of blood and therefore swelling in Serges calf has reduced substantially and unexpectedly, allowing a level of movement and stability not thought possible after the initial diagnosis," OKC general manager Sam Presti said in a release earlier on Sunday before Ibakas return was confirmed. "With this new information, and in an effort to keep his status current, we are now listing him as day-to-day with the understanding that there is a possibility for him to play in this series." "Im waiting what the doctor going to tell me and how my body going to feel," Ibaka said after Saturdays practice, acknowledging pain is more of a concern than further injury. Oklahoma City desperately needs him. The Spurs marched to a 2-0 series lead and have done so in convincing fashion. San Antonio has won the two games by an average of 26 points, thanks in large part to Wednesdays 112-77 drubbing in Game 2. Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili made history on Wednesday night and led the Spurs to another win. San Antonios Big 3 combined for 47 points and the trio passed Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Michael Cooper as the all-time winningest trio in NBA playoff history, winning their 111th postseason game together. Parker scored a game-high 22 points, Duncan went for 14 with 12 rebounds and Ginobili added 11 points off the bench in the blowout, as the Spurs leave the comfy confines of AT&T Center for Oklahoma City. In league history, 94 percent of teams to open a seven-game set 2-0 have gone on to advance. The Spurs sadly know all about the six percent. San Antonio held this exxact margin in the 2012 Western Conference finals against Oklahoma City, only to lose the next four and watch the Thunder lose to the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals. Garrett Grayson Jersey. "We know what were walking into," Duncan said. "Theyre so much better at home. Theyre going to have a lot of days to let it all fester." Duncan also racked up just under 29 minutes, passing Abdul-Jabbar for second most playoff minutes in league history in the process. Duncan is just 27 minutes back of Kobe Bryants all-time mark of 8,641 and barring injury will pass him later in this series. Danny Green made 7-of-10 from 3-point range for the Spurs, who won Mondays Game 1, 122-105. He finished with 21 and Boris Diaw was the other San Antonio player in double figures with 11. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook didnt do nearly enough to make up for Ibakas absence. The MVP and his electric point guard netted just 15 points apiece on 16 and 24 shots, respectively. The other three OKC starters only scored four points between them. "Were disappointed in our performance. We have to make a few adjustments and come back better," Thunder head coach Scott Brooks said. "We will continue to figure things out as a group like we always have done and come back Sunday and play a much better basketball game." The Thunder led 26-24 after the first quarter but were outscored 88-51 the rest of the way. The poor play has led to some blowups on the floor for OKC. At the end of the first half, when the game started getting out of hand for the Thunder, prior to a timeout, Westbrook and Durant got into a heated exchange. "I was just getting on Kevin about some stuff and he got on me right back," explained Westbrook. "And thats what teammates do. Thats what leaders do. We get on each other, we come back and we talk about it, and then we come out like nothing ever happened." The two have combined to shoot 35-for-80 from the field in the first two games. Westbrook has taken 10 more shots than the league MVP. Game 4 will be Tuesday night in Oklahoma City.
