Los Angeles for sec
(Sports Network) - Ryan Smyth and the Edmonton Oilers will try to win their sixth in a row for the first time in over nine years tonight when they visit the Los Angeles Kings. Smyth might hear some boos from the Kings faithful tonight after asking for a trade out of L.A. after last season, but the veteran is more concerned with taking care of business on the ice. "Its a game against my former teammates and its going to be what its going to be, so just go out and hopefully get the win," said Smyth. The winger took care of business in last game, scoring twice in the Oilers 4-2 victory over the Blues on Sunday. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, the leagues Rookie of the Month for October, added two assists to give him five goals and six helpers over his first 11 games. Shawn Horcoff and Jordan Eberle also scored and Nikolai Khabibulin made 28 saves as the Oilers won five in a row for the first time since Dec. 3-11, 2009. They havent run off six consecutive victories since March 14-26, 2002. Edmontons hot start has it tied with Chicago and Dallas for the most points in the Western Conference, but Smyth knows that things can change in a hurry, especially with the Oilers set to begin a six-game road trip tonight. They are 1-1-1 as the guest so far. "Obviously, you are only as good as your last shift or your last game," said Smyth. "As a group, weve built a string of wins together, which is great, but now weve got to take it on the road." The game also marks a renewal of the budding rivalry between young stars Drew Doughty and Taylor Hall. Last January Doughty caught Hall with a hard hip check, and when the two met again a month later, Hall dropped Doughty with the butt-end of a stick to the face. "I was just trying to get body position and unfortunately I got him right in the face," Hall told TSN after the incident. "I didnt mean to or anything but I guess that a little bit of payback is nice. "I played against Drew in the OHL a lot," continued Hall. "Hes a great player and I have a lot of respect for him and how he plays the game, but were just competitors playing against each other." Edmonton will be thin at the blue line to start the trip. Andy Sutton was suspended for five games for an illegal hit to the head last Friday versus Colorado and isnt eligible to return until Nov. 11 after sitting out Sundays win. Also, defenseman Cam Barker was scratched before the Blues game with a sore shoulder and Ryan Whitney is already out with a knee injury, so Edmonton recalled Colten Teubert from the minors on Wednesday. Teubert could make his NHL debut tonight against a Kings club that dealt him to the Oilers on Feb. 28 of last year for Dustin Penner. Having dropped three of their last four, the Kings will try to avoid getting caught up in Smyths return and just try to get a win following Sundays 3-2 loss to the Avalanche. The decisive goal came early, when Colorados Matt Duchene beat Jonathan Quick, who had 13 saves. "He came down with a lot of speed. He made a great shot," Quick said. "He put it in a great spot. I dont think me or the defenseman could have played it any differently." Anze Kopitar and Scott Parse each had power-play goals for the Kings, while Jarret Stoll notched an assist to give him 299 career points. A bulk of those points came early on in Stolls career as he spent his first five seasons with the Oilers. Los Angeles will play six of its next seven on home ice and is slated to have winger Simon Gagne back in action after an injury held him out of Sundays game. He was able to return to practice this week. The Kings swept their four-game series with the Oilers last year and are 8-0-4 in the past 12 meetings, dropping all four contests in a shootout. دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.

. By then it was clear: The 76ers were going to win for the first time in two months, and they were going to do it with ease. The 76ers snapped their NBA record-tying, 26-game losing streak, routing the Detroit Pistons 123-98 on Saturday night to avoid establishing the longest skid in U.SEATTLE -- Lamar Neagle scored off of a free kick by Marc Burch midway through the first half to lead the surging Seattle Sounders to their sixth win in seven matches, 1-0 over Chivas USA on Wednesday night. The Sounders (13-8-4) won their third straight and climbed into a tie with Los Angeles for second place in the Western Conference. Seattle is five points behind league-leading Real Salt Lake, with three games in hand. "Ive had chances here and there, even playing left back," said Neagle, whose goal was his sixth of the season and first since July 28. "Its one of those things that has been coming. Even in training, Ive been trying to work on finishing as much as possible. "When it came down to it, we got one, and thats all we needed with the shutouts weve been getting." It was the Sounders fourth straight goal in the last four games scored off of a free kick. "We felt it was important for Lamar to do well," Seattle coach Sigi Schmid said. "We also felt weve been very good in set pieces and free kicks lately. We said thats something we want to ttry to take advantage of, and we did again.ddddddddddddquot; Chivas (5-15-7) had its road winless streak extended to 12 (0-9-3). "We almost scored at the end, but unfortunately, the referee finished the game," Chivas USA coach Jose Luis Real said. "Before the game, we talked about (Seattles scoring on set pieces), but it wasnt enough. In the first half, Seattle was better. But in the second half, Chivas, in my opinion, was better." A hard foul on Seattle defender DeAndre Yedlin gave the Sounders a free kick 23 yards up from the goal line on the right side. Burch drove the ball into the penalty area and Neagle, after settling it at the top right corner of the box, turned and drilled a right-footed shot into the far side of the net early in the 24th minute. Sounders goalkeeper Michael Gspurning picked up his third straight shutout and ninth of the year. The Sounders were without Clint Dempsey and Eddie Johnson, who are both with the U.S. national team for World Cup qualifying games Friday at Costa Rica and next Tuesday against Mexico in Columbus, Ohio.
