Post e coming off an 88-81 win over Kansas
EDMONTON -- The Los Angeles Kings are looking very much like a team that has hit its stride heading down the stretch. Jeff Carter had two goals and an assist as the Kings stretched their streak to seven wins in a row with a 4-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday. Alec Martinez and Trevor Lewis also scored for the Kings (37-22-6), who are now on their longest win streak since taking nine in a row in 2010. "It feels good to feel like you are contributing on an individual level, but the most important thing is that we are winning games right now," Martinez said. "This is the crunch time of the year and we have to be playing playoff hockey. Its been good to be getting these two points consistently." Kings forward Jarret Stoll said the wins dont always have to be pretty. "Tonight wasnt our best game by any means, not even close, but we found a way and just stuck with it," he said. "We didnt really have our legs at some points, but you have to find ways to win. Dirty ways, ugly ways, whatever. Thats the biggest thing right now. We are getting timely saves from our goaltenders like we usually get and we are finding goals." Taylor Hall and Sam Gagner responded for the Oilers (22-35-8), who had a two-game winning streak snapped. Oilers head coach Dallas Eakins said that the game wasnt as one-sided as it may have seemed and his team was somewhat the victim of bad luck with two goals going in off of odd deflections. "I thought our guys were in the battle, they were sticking together, they were playing hard," he said. "There was no standing around watching them play. We made our mistakes and then they had two goals like that. The first one is a heart-breaker, its not a good way to start, it goes off a guys foot. That gets you down against a team I consider one of the best in the league." Los Angeles was all over Edmonton, outshooting the Oilers 50-27. Gagner tried to downplay the stat. "If you look at the shot differential you draw conclusions from that, but I didnt think it was as one sided as the shots suggested," Gagner said. "I thought it was one of those games where we battled against that team and we held our own physically. Were obviously not happy with the result, but we have to move forward." Kings goalie Jonathan Quick said he felt for his former teammate Ben Scrivens in the Edmonton net, but said his 46-save performance only shows the kind of goalie the Oilers acquired when they traded for him in mid-January. "He has done it all year, he did it with us too," he said "I think he is just what this team needed here in Edmonton. He consistently gives you a solid effort and a chance to win every night. We put 50 shots on him and they still had a chance at the end there. "For a few years now I think it is an area the Oilers needed improvement, not to knock the goalies they had before. The team defence could be better as well. But (Scrivens) has really stepped in since he came here and given them a chance to win every night." The Kings got off to a quick start, scoring a gift goal on the games first shot 1:36 into the contest as a Carter shot that was going wide hit the skate of defender Philip Larsen and got past a surprised Scrivens in the Oilers net. Edmonton tied the game seven-and-a-half minutes into the opening period as David Perron made a nifty no-look backhand pass to Hall, who made a move before sending a backhand shot through Quicks legs. It was Halls 22nd goal of the season and 60th point. Los Angeles outshot Edmonton 12-5 in the first period. Scrivens continued to be tested, making a huge kick save on a Marian Gaborik blast eight minutes into the second period -- the Kings 20th shot of the game. Los Angeles took the lead less than a minute later as a Martinez point shot seemed to hit something in front on its way into the Edmonton net. Carter got another odd goal midway through the second period as Scrivens blocked an Anze Kopitar shot, but the rebound caromed off of the back of Carters leg and in. It was Carters 24th goal of the season. The Kings made it 4-1 with four minutes left in the second as Carter fed a pass to a hard-charging Lewis, who fluttered a shot that Scrivens could only wave his glove at. It was just Lewis third goal in 56 games this season. The shots favoured the Kings 33-19 after 40 minutes. It was Edmontons turn to get a lucky bounce early in the third with the teams playing four players a side. Gagner tried to feed Ryan Smyth at the side of the net, but it hit defender Drew Doughty in front and went into the Kings net to make it 4-2. It was Gagners first goal in 16 games. The Kings conclude a three-game road trip in Calgary on Monday. Edmonton embarks on a four-game trip, starting in Minnesota on Tuesday. Notes: It was the third of four games this season between the Oilers and Kings. The Kings won the two previous encounters, both played in Los Angeles. The Kings held a 13-1-4 in their past 18 games against Edmonton. ... The Oilers have had their troubles against Pacific Division opponents, coming in with only four wins against them this season, two of those wins coming against Calgary. ... Los Angeles has been a very strong defensive team all season, allowing a league-low 2.05 goals per game. ... Remaining out for the Oilers was defenceman Anton Belov (partially torn oblique). The Kings had no injuries to report. Sammie Coates Jersey . Villa has already confirmed his short-term deal and the Daily Mirror reported early Tuesday that Lampard will join him as both build up match fitness ahead of moves to the new Major League Soccer franchise New York City. Cleveland Browns Jerseys ... as usual. Even with the salary cap being set lower than many general managers expected and hoped for at $69 million and whats considered a shallow pool of top-end players available, this unrestricted-free-agent period figures to follow the familiar script of teams bidding up prices to keep up with each other. http://www.footballbrownsnflprostore.co ... te-Jersey/.

HABS HEADED TO CONFERENCE FINAL The Montreal Canadiens scored early in Game Seven, built a lead and protected it well on their way to a 3-1 series-clinching win over the Boston Bruins. While this game or series isnt necessarily a referendum on the value of fourth lines, the Canadiens certainly benefitted from production lower down their forward depth chart.Lexington, KY (SportsNetwork.com) - Aaron Harrison scored all of his 14 points in the second half and No. 1 Kentucky got all it could handle from Vanderbilt before pulling away late for a 65-57 win on Tuesday. Vandy was within three with five minutes to play and four at 2:36 after Matthew Fisher-Davis drilled his fourth 3-pointer of the game. Harrison answered with a trey of his own, and his brother Andrew scored on a layup to help the nations top team stay unbeaten. Dakari Johnson added 10 points for Kentucky (18-0, 5-0 SEC) and Willie Cauley-Stein had a game-high 10 rebounds. Riley LaChance shot 6-of-8 for 16 points and Fisher-Davis had 13 for Vanderbilt (11-7, 1-4), which has dropped its last four games after opening league play with a win over Auburn. Damian Jones gave 11 points, seven rebounds and three blocks. Final Score: (6) Wisconsin 82, (25) Iowa 50 Madison, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Sam Dekker had 17 points, Nigel Hayes scored 16 and No. 6 Wisconsin rolled to an 82-50 win over No. 25 Iowa on Tuesday. Frank Kaminsky and Bronson Koenig added 13 points each for the Badgers (17-2, 5-1 Big Ten) and Kaminsky pulled down a game-high 11 rebounds. Wisconsin picked up its eighth consecutive Big Ten home win and tied No. 13 Maryland for first place in the conference. Jarrod Uthoff scored 12 points to lead the Hawkeyes (13-6, 4-2), who had a two-game winning streak snapped. Wisconsin is 10-1 in its last 11 games overall, the only loss coming Jan. 11 at Rutgers when it played without Kaminsky because of a concussion and finished the game without point guard Traevon Jackson, who suffered a fractured foot in the ssecond half.dddddddddddd Final Score: (9) Iowa State 77, Kansas State 71 Ames, IA (SportsNetwork.com) - Jameel McKay tied his career-high of 15 points and also had seven rebounds and three blocks off the bench as No. 9 Iowa State held off Kansas State 77-71 on Monday night. Georges Niang scored 14 points with six rebounds and four assists and Monte Morris and Abdel Nader each netted 11 for the Cyclones (14-3, 4-1 Big 12), who were coming off an 88-81 win over Kansas on Saturday. Nino Williams had 22 points on 8-of-13 shooting and eight boards, while Marcus Foster and Thomas Gipson chipped in 16 and 15 points, respectively, for the Wildcats (11-8, 4-2), who had their four-game winning streak come to an end. Final Score: Davidson 77, (22) Dayton 60 Davidson, NC (SportsNetwork.com) - Davidson showed Tuesday its high-powered offense can light up the scoreboard against stingy defenses too. Peyton Aldridge hit four of the Davidsons 12 3-pointers and the Wildcats snapped Daytons eight-game wining streak and handed the 22nd-ranked Flyers their first A-10 loss in a 77-60 drubbing at Belk Arena. Davidson (13-4, 4-2 A-10) did not hit its season average of 82.4 points, but only because it took its foot off the gas after building a healthy lead. Aldridge finished with 22 points, Tyler Kalinoski chipped in with 21 and Jordan Barham, who started in place of an injured Jack Gibbs, added eight. Jordan Sibert and Kendall Pollard carried Dayton (15-3, 5-1) with 23 points apiece, but the Flyers committed 16 turnovers and for the first time all season had no answers on the defensive end.
