The Edmonton Oilers will try to build off their first road victory of the season on Sunday night as they visit the New York Rangers and Madison Square Garden. Draymond Green Jersey . The Oilers lost their first five road contests of the season, going 0-4-1, and dropped the first two of a five-game swing before topping the Buffalo Sabres 3-2 on Friday. Boyd Gordon potted the winning goal in the late stages of the third period. Iiro Pakarinen netted his first career goal and Mark Arcobello lit the lamp as part of a 52-shot showing by Edmonton. Teddy Purcell finished with two assists to help his club halt a four-game slide overall. We were able to respond after their second goal, gave a good push-back and got the win, said Gordon. Viktor Fasth came up with 29 saves for the victory, his first in four starts this season. Edmonton may go back to Ben Scrivens in net tonight and he is 2-1-0 with a 2.00 goals against average and .943 save percentage in three prior meetings with the Rangers. The Oilers and Rangers split two meetings a season ago, with each club winning on the road. Edmonton picked up a 2-1 win at MSG on Feb. 6, with Nail Yakupov scoring the game-winner with 1:38 to play and Scrivens making 35 saves. The Rangers were bested 5-4 by the Toronto Maple Leafs last night, the first time in five games they failed to record a point. They had gone 2-0-2 before the road setback. Rick Nash netted his 11th goal of the season in the loss, tied with Anaheims Corey Perry for the NHL lead, and Derek Stepan had an assist in his season debut. He had missed the first 12 games with a broken leg suffered during training camp. Chris Kreider and Mats Zuccarello each had a goal and an assist, Carl Hagelin also scored and Cam Talbot turned aside 26 shots in defeat. We played right into their hands, Zuccarello said. We have to get into lanes and back each other up. With Talbot having gotten the start last night, Henrik Lundqvist will return to net for this contest. Lundqvist, though, is just 1-1-2 in four career meetings with the Oilers, posting a 2.53 GAA and .909 save percentage. Golden State Warriors Pro Shop . Ferrer, the two-time defending champion in Buenos Aires, is aiming to win his 21st ATP tournament. Ferrer will next face fellow Spaniard Nicolas Almagro, the fourth seed, who defeated Jeremy Chardy of France 7-6 (7), 6-3 in another quarterfinal match. Andrew Bogut Jersey . 4 jersey of former defenseman Rob Blake this coming season. The ceremony will take place prior to the Kings January 17 game against Anaheim. https://www.cheapwarriors.com/ . - The Baltimore Ravens and tight end Dennis Pitta reached agreement on a five-year contract Friday.Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn.ca. Kerry, after watching P.K. Subban called for slashing Tampas Brett Connolly from the bench on Tuesday, shouldnt any foul committed by a player on the bench against another player on the bench be called as unsportsmanlike conduct? Why would the ref still call it slashing? Mike Vail Mike: Other than objects thrown onto the ice from the players or penalty bench (results in bench minor) the referee(s) is directed to impose the appropriate penalty to any identifiable player that commits an infraction from those bench areas. This application results from a broad extension of rule 56.2 -Interference, A minor penalty shall be imposed on any identifiable player on the players or penalty bench who, by means of his stick or his body, interferes with the movements of the puck or any opponent on the ice during the progress of the play. The appropriate penalty according to the playingg rules shall be assessed when a player on the players or penalty bench gets involved with an opponent on the ice during a stoppage in play. Gus Williams Jersey. .. Rule 56.3 adds that the bench minor penalty would be assessed if the officials were unable to identify the specific player guilty of such action. While it was more of a poke or tap than a slash, P.K. Subban did make deliberate stick contact with Brett Connolly of the Lightning while standing on the Montreal players bench. As such, Subban was clearly identifiable and the referee appropriately assessed a stick related infraction against the Montreal player. The referee had the option of deeming Subban guilty of unsportsmanlike conduct (minor or misconduct) but in my judgment chose the better course of action. The intent of this rule application is to identify and punish the specific player guilty of violating the playing rules when positioned on the players bench or penalty box. This needless penalty resulted in a Lightning power-play goal scored by Tyler Johnson. ' ' '
