(SportsNetwork.com) - The Edmonton Oilers hope to prevent another losing streak from taking shape on Friday night as they take on the Colorado Avalanche at Pepsi Center. The Oilers halted a nine-game slide with Tuesdays shootout victory over the Los Angeles Kings, but was bested 4-3 in overtime the following night by the Calgary Flames. Edmonton failed to hold a pair of leads and was denied the win when Calgarys Josh Jooris, coming out of the penalty box, finished off a 2- on-1 rush 1:08 into overtime with a goal. Jordan Eberle, Andrew Ference and Matt Fraser all lit the lamp for the Oilers, while Ben Scrivens allowed four goals on 28 shots in the loss. Edmonton fell to 2-14-7 in its last 23 games. Its somewhat frustrating, but I think we can take a couple things out of this game, Oilers coach Todd Nelson said. On the tail end of a back-to-back, thats a solid effort. Defenseman Keith Aulie will miss the next two games for the Oilers as he was handed a suspension for an illegal check to the head of Calgarys Matt Stajan, while forward Tyler Pitlick landed on injured reserve due to a lacerated spleen. Edmonton did recall center Anton Lander from the American Hockey League and forward Benoit Pouliot is in line to return tonight from an 18-game absence caused by a broken foot. He skated on a line with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle on Thursday. There also are continued reports that the Oilers are set to send rookie forward Leon Draisaitl to the Western Hockey League as early as Friday. He had two assists in the loss to the Flames and has totaled two goals and seven helpers in 37 games this season. The Avalanche eye a second straight win tonight after snapping a two-game slide with Wednesdays 4-3 overtime victory against the Philadelphia Flyers. Ryan OReilly had the winner with 19.9 seconds left on the clock as he snapped home a pass from defenseman Tyson Barrie. I wanted to win the draw and then get the puck back, said OReilly. It was a good pass from Tyson and I just wanted to get it on net. It was a great game tonight and this win is a team effort. Nate Guenin and Jarome Iginla scored and Borna Rendulic became the first Croatian-born player to score a goal in the NHL. Semyon Varlamov made 26 saves. Friday marks the first of three meetings this season between the Avs and Oilers. Colorado has won the past two encounters overall and four of the last six at home. Varlamov is 5-8-0 lifetime versus the Oilers with a 3.25 goals against average and .892 save percentage, while Scrivens is 0-1-1 when facing the Avs with a 2.45 GAA and .924 save percentage.
.J. -- Kevin Gilbride retired Thursday as offensive co-ordinator for the New York Giants.
. Adam Lind provided the power and rookie starter Marcus Stroman had the best start of his young career as the Blue Jays dumped the Yankees 8-3 at Rogers Centre. Stroman, making his fifth start for Toronto, allowed one earned run and three hits over a career-high eight innings.
. -- Aaron Rodgers looked fine on the practice field Thursday.
. According to the CFL Scouting Bureaus January rankings, four of the top five Canadian prospects line-up on the offensive side of the trenches, which is good news for Bombers general manager Kyle Walters. With only one selection in the first two rounds Walters sent his second-round pick to Saskatchewan in the days ahead of the 2013 trade deadline the No.
. -- Hal Steinbrenner says Alex Rodriguez is "a great player" and "obviously an asset," but the New York Yankees managing general partner wouldnt discuss the third basemans possible return to the team following a season-long suspension.He shouted, he chewed, he spat but in the end, he couldnt do what he truly wanted. There was nowhere for him to hide. With much going on around him, it is hard to imagine a coach on the sidelines being lonely but in reality, it can be one of the loneliest places in the game. Standing on the side of the field in Houston on Thursday night, Montreal Impact boss Marco Schallibaum was a show in himself. Fortunately, as sideline reporter for TSNs broadcast, I had a front row seat. With the unscripted drama playing out on the pitch, Schallibaum stood powerless, at times, to the events unfolding in front of him. He told me in our morning meeting at the team hotel about that feeling he gets when he needs some of his players to be extensions of himself during the game. When the speed intensifies, he wanted calmness, some authority from his senior players. The decisions to play Nelson Rivas in his first game for 13 months and hand Matteo Ferrari the captains armband were attempts from the coach to bring the leadership from the side and on to the pitch. The attempts turned out to be nothing more than just that. When Ferrari got dragged out of position, lost his footing and left a gap for Houston to exploit for the first goal, Schallibaum turned in disgust and threw his gum to the ground. Fifteen minutes later, the ball was inches from him on the right side when his right back, Hassoun Camara couldnt find an outlet and gave the ball away. Seconds later, a foul in their own box, a penalty and a second goal left Schallibaum in tatters. He looked desperately for a replay of the Hernan Bernadellos foul and when he realised the stadiums video board wouldnt give it to him, I pointed to TSNs screen I had next to me for the replay. He waved me off. In a split second, the former player had gathered himself and knew full well it was a foul. He talked briefly with his assistants about the issue of the lack of outlets for Camara in the buildup and, down 2-0, now, more than ever, his players were looking at him. Constant misplaced passes were met by hand gestures and regular walks towards me with his back to goal. I got the feeling if there wasnt a stand behind me with fans in it, he might have kept walking. Back on the touchline, the coach gave RDS aan interview on 30 minutes, as he does for all games, and one he needed to be commended for, considering what was evolving on the stage in front of him.dddddddddddd At half-time in my interview, he tried to maintain some positivity but was unable to filter himself. A minute earlier, he was the conductor of an orchestra without instruments inside a drained dressing room of professionals who needed to be lifted. Time was running out and at such moments, he decided to react on impulse. There were no spreadsheet scenarios thought out ahead of time. This was on gut feeling, based around individual errors. When Andrea Pisanu cut inside and gave away another ball with a poor pass, Schallibaum signaled to his staff to call for Andres Romero. Soon after, still down 2-0, Andrew Wenger again lost the ball to centre-back Eric Brunner. Another signal came and this time, it was a double change. Schallibaum turned around again. He looked at me and, feeling the need to justify the changes, just said we need to get a goal! He was all-in at a card table with a terrible hand. It would get worse. Much worse. A red card for Rivas, a third goal for Houston, and a leg injury to Ferrari with all the subs used. There was still 20 minutes left and if he had a white flag, he would have raised it. Montreal were deflated, distraught and defeated. Schallibaum had nowhere to go. Fans behind us mocked him. "Doctor Phil says its okay to cry," shouted one. "Start the plane - time to get home to Canada," mocked another. Sport is a great theatre, one that brings out a whole range of emotions. The often emotional Schallibaum used this time to observe his silence. His players were not as reserved and a melee at the end saw two more sent off, leaving the Impact with eight men to finish the game. Eight men knocked out of the playoffs at their first attempt. It certainly was a nightmare Halloween for the coach and his team, and as Montreal traipsed off the field for the final time in 2013, their coach finally got to express his emotions behind closed doors. It isnt always easy to be yourself on the sidelines," he told me earlier in the day. Win, draw or lose, even like this; he still wouldnt want to be anywhere else. ' ' '
