Postby yudan18 » Fri Dec 07, 2018 6:54 am

CHICAGO (AP) — Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers didn’t miss when it really mattered.McDavid scored 53 seconds into overtime to lift the Oilers to their third straight win Brian Elliott Jersey , 2-1 over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday.After Patrick Kane and Brandon Saad got caught deep in the Chicago zone, McDavid finished a 2-on-1 break, taking a cross-ice feed from Leon Draisaitl and beating Cam Ward from the low edge of left circle for his eighth goal.With only Chicago defenseman Erik Gustafsson back, Draisaitl made the perfect pass and McDavid buried the shot to give him goals in four straight games.“We’re fortunate to have those two,” Oilers coach Todd McLellan said. “They feel real comfortable in those situations. They wait for their moments and they make them count.”Along with four goals, McDavid has two assists in his last four games. Overall, he has a point in nine of 10 games.“We’ve got some skill,” McDavid said. “Even if it’s not me and Leon, it’s some of our D jumping in and up and down the lineup. And we know how to play 3-on-3. It’s different style hockey that we all seem to understand.”Cam Talbot stopped 31 shots as Edmonton improved to 3-1 in overtime games. Chicago is 3-3 in contests that go beyond regulation.“We didn’t give them a whole lot Womens Claude Giroux Jersey ,” Talbot said. “I thought we stayed poised, calm and collected. Connor and Leon did what Connor and Leon do all the time.”Chicago’s Brent Seabrook and Edmonton’s Zack Kassian scored in the first period.Kane, Chicago’s leading scorer, assisted on Seabrook’s goal to extend his point streak to six games. Kane entered with an NHL-leading 11 goals and has been held without a point only once in 12 games.Ward made 24 saves as the Blackhawks rebounded with a tighter defensive effort following a 7-3 loss at St. Louis on Saturday.“It was a concerning game going in,” Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said. “It was interesting to see how we responded.“I thought our first (period) was ordinary, but our last two were OK. We took a point and you hope you get a second one.”The Oilers and Blackhawks play again at Edmonton on Thursday in their second of three meetings.Seabrook opened the scoring at 11:02 of the first period, completing a give-and-go with Kane during a 5-on-3 power-play for his second goal this season.Seabrook passed from the blue line to Kane in the right circle. Seabrook then slipped through the slot, took Kane’s return feed and beat Talbot high on the glove side.Kassian’s first goal tied it 1-all with 1:34 left in the period to cap a flurry around the Chicago net following a faceoff. Ward made a pad save on Darnell Nurse’s shot from the point, and then Jujhar Khaira flipped the rebound off the crossbar.Kassian corralled the loose puck at the right side of the net and scooped it in with Ward sprawled on the ice.Chicago outshot Edmonton 13-7 in the scoreless second. Talbot stopped Nick Schmaltz on a breakaway 3:22 into the period and Marcus Kruger close in with 2:20 left.Tobias Rieder shot wide on a short-handed 2-on-1 break midway through the scoreless third. Talbot stopped Erik Gustafsson from the slot with 17 seconds left in regulation.NOTES: Oilers C Draisaitl and D Adam Larsson took regular shifts on Sunday after both sustained messy injuries in the second period at Nashville on Saturday http://www.flyersshoponline.com/authentic-ivan-provorov-jersey , and then returned in that game to help Edmonton win 5-3. Draisaitl was high-sticked above the left eye and Larsson was struck by a puck in the mouth against the Predators. Larsson skated on Sunday with a protective cage mask. … D Jan Rutta, C John Hayden and LW Chris Kunitz were healthy scratches for Chicago. D Evan Bouchard, C Cooper Marody and RW Jesse Puljujarvi sat out for Edmonton.UP NEXTOilers: Host Minnesota on Tuesday.Blackhawks: At Vancouver on Wednesday to start a three-game Western Canada trip. WASHINGTON (AP) — Cameras followed Willie O’Ree’s every move and flashbulbs popped as the hockey pioneer toured the Smithsonian’s Museum of African American History and Culture.When the player who broke the NHL’s color barrier in 1958 stood next to a statue of Jackie Robinson, Commissioner Gary Bettman paused to take his phone out and snap a few photos of his own. O’Ree and Bettman have attended countless events together over the past two decades, but this tour on the opening day of the season and a month before they’re inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame together was a unique opportunity for an influential newsmaker to immerse himself in hundreds of years of history.“It brought back a lot of memories for me,” O’Ree said Wednesday. “My grandparents, they were slaves, and then bringing up to date, it’s just amazing. I had a few tears in my eyes there.”With Bettman by his side Jakub Voracek Jersey Kids , O’Ree wiped tears from his eyes as sports curator Damion Thomas talked about the small buildings slaves slept in in after picking cotton from sunrise to sunset. He stopped to read about Michael Jordan’s influence and got a kick out of a story about Chuck Berry driving a red Cadillac on stage to perform at St. Louis’ Fox Theatre.Memories came flooding back in a room featuring a picture of one of Robinson’s games in Atlanta with so many people packed into the stadium that some were on the field. O’Ree sat down in one of the replica seats from Ebbets Field and recalled meeting Robinson in the dugout after a game at age 14 and telling him he played not only baseball but hockey, too.“He remarked that, ‘I didn’t know that there were any black kids playing hockey,'” O’Ree said. “I said, ‘Yeah, there’s a few.'”Thirteen years later when O’Ree was playing professional hockey in Los Angeles, a coach introduced him to Robinson. Or, rather, re-introduced him.“Mr. Robinson turned around and said Youth Jordan Weal Jersey , ‘Willie O’Ree, aren’t you the young fella I met in Brooklyn?'” O’Ree said. “So he remembered me from 1949 to 1962 and that made a big impact on me.”O’Ree’s impact is still being felt today as there are now more than two dozen black players in the NHL. There isn’t yet anything about the Canadian-born O’Ree in the museum, though that could change after he and Bettman got to experience what it was all about.“This museum is amazing,” Bettman said. “As a bit of a history buff, there’s so much I didn’t know and that I was learning and it’s clear to me that I have to come back. But as importantly to be able to experience this with Willie, special doesn’t begin to describe it.”O’Ree, 82, also wants to return with his family after getting only 90 minutes or so to walk around. But those were some important minutes for the museum itself with a living legend in its hallways.“It was an honor to tour through the museum with Willie,” Thomas said. “You’re not just sharing history with a member of the public Scott Laughton Jersey , but you’re sharing history with a history maker. So, what you hope that you’re able to do in the museum is to have people see their contributions in a much larger light, have people be able to see how their contributions connect to other parts of history.”
