TAMPA, Fla. Kevin Molino Jersey . -- After another big offensive night, Steven Stamkos gave the credit for the Tampa Bay Lightnings
latest win to goalie Ben Bishop. Stamkos had two goals and Bishop made 38 saves,
helping the Lightning beat the Edmonton Oilers 4-2 on Thursday night for their
sixth win in seven games. "Hes the reason why we won," Stamkos said of Bishop.
"Im not very happy with the way we played. If it wasnt for Bish, its not a win
for us. We didnt deserve the win." Bishop (10-2-0) made saves on first-period
breakaway shots by Mark Arcobello and Taylor Hall. "Best player on the ice. ...
hands down," Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said. "Dont need to comment on it
anymore." Stamkos, who extended his goal-scoring streak to five games, has 13
goals this season. Tampa Bay was outshot 40-26. "Absolutely. Boy, its a crazy
game," Oilers coach Dallas Eakins said. "Theres been games this season where
youve won the game and maybe you didnt think you deserved it, and youre upset
with your play. And theres been games that weve lost where weve been disgusted
with ourselves as a group. And then tonight, its one of those nights where ... I
loved the way we played. And I thought we played with passion and we competed
hard." Taylor Fedun and Hall scored for the Oilers, who have lost six of seven.
Fedun, playing in his second game, also scored in his NHL debut Tuesday night at
Florida. Hall, the first overall pick in the 2010 draft, returned after missing
seven games due to a knee injury. His in-close power-play goal got Edmonton
within 3-2 midway through the third. "As far as my game goes, its just tough
when you lose the game," Hall said. "Thats the main thing. Were searching for
wins right now, and whatever anyone can do is huge." Stamkos put the Lightning
up 1-0 when he beat Devan Dubnyk from the high slot 7:37 into the game. The
centre has eight goals and 12 points during a seven-game point streak. After
Fedun scored at 10:11, Stamkos gave Tampa Bay a 2-1 advantage on a wraparound
goal with 52.7 seconds left in the first. Bishop turned aside all 15 shots he
faced in the second. Tampa Bay got the lone goal during the period to go up 3-1
when Tyler Johnson scored from the low shot at 18:33. "Youre not always going to
be pretty," Bishop said. "Youve got find ways to win when youre not at your
best." Valtteri Filppula added an empty-net goal for Tampa Bay with 1:05 to
play. The Lightning are 6-0-0 against Western Conference teams this season. "You
can never be disappointed after a win," Cooper said. "Im glad for the two
points. Just a little rattled about the way we ended up coming out with them."
NOTES: Tampa Bay starts a three-game road trip against Atlantic Division foes
Saturday at Detroit. The Lightning will also play at Boston and Montreal. "I
think it will be a big test," Stamkos said. ... Edmonton LW Jesse Joensuu
(back), D Anton Belov (lower back) and D Justin Schultz (groin) are all
practicing. LW David Perron (neck) could soon resume practicing with the team.
... Oilers LW Linus Omark played after being recalled from Oklahoma City of the
AHL on Wednesday. ... As part of Military Appreciation Night, the Lightning wore
camouflage jerseys during the pregame skate. .... Tampa Bay D Matt Carle was
plus-4 for the game. ... Edmonton RW Nail Yakupov played just 11:08 and is
minus-14 this season, including minus-1 Thursday. Bryan Rochez Orlando City SC Jersey . "We were left with the overall impression that the team wasnt trending toward being
able to compete for a Stanley Cup," Capitals owner Ted Leonsis said in a news
conference at the clubs arena. "And that was just a clear signal and why it was
time to make those changes. Cyle Larin Jersey . He was still a kid, going into his senior year of high school. Thursday, the point guard stood in front of
a couple dozen members of the media and spoke with poise about how much hed
grown since then, and how hes ready for the next level.( -
Colorado may be ahead of the Vancouver Canucks in the Western Conference
standings, but they are a club that the Avalanche may want to avoid in the
playoffs. The Canucks, though, are no lock to reach the postseason and they will
continue their push for a wild card spot on Thursday night versus the Avs.
Vancouver is four points back of Phoenix for the second wild card spot in the
Western Conference and has played one more game than the Coyotes, who visit the
New Jersey Devils tonight. The Dallas Stars also are one point ahead of the
Canucks in the standings and have played two fewer games than Vancouver. That
gives the Canucks an uphill battle in reaching the postseason and the squad has
responded with its longest winning streak since late December. That includes
last nights 5-2 triumph over the Minnesota Wild. David Booth scored twice in the
win and Eddie Lack made 29 saves as the Canucks have claimed three straight
victories for the first time since Dec. 20-29. Another win tonight would give
Vancouver its longest string of victories since a season-best seven-game run
from Dec. 1-14. "Were breathing. Thats the most important thing and we found a
way tonight," said Canucks head coach John Tortorella. Daniel Sedin, Ryan Kesler
and Zack Kassian all added goals for a Vancouver squad that was without captain
Henrik Sedin due to a left knee injury suffered in Sundays win against the
Buffalo Sabres. He is day-to-day and did not travel with the club for its quick
two-game road trip that ends tonight. It is unknown if Lack will get another
start tonight or if backup Jacob Markstrom will get the call. Neither has eever
faced the Avalanche and Markstrom has made just one appearance in relief since
coming over in the trade that sent Roberto Luongo to the Florida Panthers. Kevin Molino Orlando City SC Jersey. Whoever gets the call will try to extend the Canucks recent string of success over the
Avalanche. Vancouver picked up a 3-1 victory over Colorado at home on Dec. 8 and
has won 11 of 12 as well as 19 of the previous 22 encounters. The Canucks also
have won 10 of their last 13 trips to Colorado, though they did have a four-game
series road win streak snapped in the most recent meeting there on April 13 of
last season. The Avs are rolling towards a playoff spot as they own a nine-point
edge over the fourth-place Wild in the Central Division and are also a mere
three points back of the Chicago Blackhawks for second. Colorado did bring a
three-game winless stretch (0-2-1) into Tuesday nights meeting with the
Nashville Predators and escaped with a 5-4 shootout victory on the road despite
never leading in regulation. Gabriel Landeskog scored twice in regulation and
had the deciding shootout tally, while Cody McLeod and Nick Holden both scored
to erase third-period deficits. "What I like about our group is we were
resilient even if we were not playing our best game," said Colorado head coach
Patrick Roy. Semyon Varlamov made 29 saves as Colorado reached 45 wins in a
season for the first time since 2001-02. The Avs won a franchise-best 52
victories the previous season en route to a Stanley Cup title. Varlamov will
start tonight and is seeking his first career win versus the Canucks, having
gone 0-7-1 with a 2.80 goals against average in previous meetings. Wholesale Jerseys China ' ' '
