SEATTLE (AP) — While the Minnesota Vikings are still fully in control of their path to the postseason Stefon Diggs Jersey , Adam Thielen knows it’s starting to slip away.Ten points last week in New England. Seven points on Monday night in an ugly 21-7 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. It’s not good enough. The Vikings know it, and the frustration is beginning to build.“We’re fighting as an offense, we’re trying to get something going. We just need a spark. We need a spark and we need it fast,” Thielen said. “I think we have a bunch of guys on this offense that want to win and want to make plays. But we haven’t found that rhythm. It’s there. It’s there. We just have to keep fighting.”Minnesota lost its second straight and had an offensive night to forget against a Seattle defense that had appeared vulnerable of late. Minnesota (6-6-1) twice had scoring chances in the fourth quarter when it was still a one-score game, but was turned away each time.The Vikings’ chances of winning the NFC North took a major hit with the loss, but they still hold the No. 6 spot in the NFC — for now.“I don’t know how to give you a measurement on that, I don’t know what the scale is for that number, but certainly, when you’re not putting as many points on the board as you’re capable of or have shown in past games it is disappointing Harrison Smith Jersey ,” Minnesota quarterback Kirk Cousins said. “I think the added piece of the disappointment is when your defense is playing so well.”Minnesota’s defense more than did its part against Seattle. The Vikings held the Seahawks to six points into the fourth quarter, taking advantage of a poor night by Russell Wilson. And while Seattle ran crazy against one of the better run defenses in the NFL, the Vikings did enough to keep it a one-score game long enough for Cousins, Thielen and the rest of their offensive crew to have a chance.But Minnesota couldn’t convert. They were turned away on fourth down at the Seattle 1 with 9:06 remaining and on their next possession Dan Bailey’s 47-yard field goal attempt was blocked by Bobby Wagner on a debatable call whether Wagner’s leap over the offensive line was legal.Whether or not Wagner’s play was legal, the Vikings never found the end zone until Cousins’ 6-yard TD pass to Dalvin Cook with 1:10 left. All it did was keep the Vikings from being shutout for the first time since 2007.“We’ve got to score points, we’ve got to move the ball, we’ve got to stay on schedule,” Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs said. “We can’t get behind the chains. It’s simple things. We can’t get behind the sticks.”Cousins finished 20 of 33 for 208 yards, but had just 56 yards passing entering the fourth quarter. He noted that teams are rotating their coverages on Diggs and Thielen Adam Thielen Jersey , trying to slow down Minnesota’s passing game, and he’s not going to force throws into danger. Seattle played seven defensive backs at times trying to contain Diggs and Thielen.That extra coverage is partly why Thielen, who entered the game with 98 catches, didn’t get his first target until midway through the third quarter. By that point, Seattle offensive tackle George Fant already had a catch after reporting eligible on a play.“We didn’t have a lot of explosive plays, again credit the Seahawks for limiting those,” Cousins said. “When you don’t have explosive plays, and you’re kind of marching methodically down the field, it was hard for us to sustain.”The most frustrating sequence for Minnesota was early in the fourth quarter trailing 6-0 and after finally hitting a 48-yard reception to Diggs to get deep into Seattle territory. The Vikings had first-and-goal at the 4 Kirk Cousins Jersey , but after two short runs and an incompletion, faced fourth-and-goal at the 1. Rather than run, Cousins tried to hit Kyle Rudolph across the middle, but the pass was broken up by Bradley McDougald.“Every situation that we failed at the end of the night is frustrating,” Cook said. “We just have to go and fix it and watch film. We have to get it right.” Before his older brother Matt was hired by the Green Bay Packers this week, San Francisco 49ers receivers coach/passing game coordinator Mike LaFleur was just an average joe. Now, however, he’s quite the popular guy, but his current employer is telling everyone that he’s not available.Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that the Minnesota Vikings are one of three teams that were denied permission to speak to the younger LaFleur by the 49ers. The Packers and the Cleveland Browns were also denied permission to bring him in for an interview.It hasn’t been made clear in what capacity the Vikings might have been interested in having Mike LaFleur fill on their coaching staff. The only currently known openings for the Vikings are the offensive line coach position and the special teams coach Marcus Sherels Jersey , neither of which it would appear Mike LaFleur would be a fit for at first glance. The Vikings don’t have a specific “run game coordinator” or “pass game coordinator” on their staff as many NFL teams do today, so maybe that would have been what the interview was for.However, we’ll likely never know what the Vikings’ interest in bringing in Mike LaFleur would have been. There was interest, however.Also, for purposes of context. . .and apologies for the awful quality, but it’s the only version of this that I could find that wouldn’t auto-play.

MIAMI (AP) — Contemplating the agony of the Miami Dolphins‘ latest defeat Reshad Jones Jersey , coach Adam Gase drew on his experience, wishing he had less of it."You always debate — are you better off getting blown out, or losing in a heartbreaker," Gase said.His conclusion? "No matter which way you do it, it just hurts the same," he said.The Dolphins (7-7) have lost both ways too much this year. Ditto Jacksonville (4-10), Miami's opponent Sunday.Here are things to know about two teams afflicted with the holidays blahs:ALSO-RAN STATUSA 41-17 loss at Minnesota last week pushed Miami to the verge of elimination from the AFC playoff race, and dropped Gase's three-year record in games decided by more than one score to 3-18.That's a lot of lopsided losses Jesse Davis Jersey , including three this year. The 2018 Dolphins also squandered fourth-quarter double-digit leads in two defeats.That's why they're ninth in the AFC race for six playoff berths. They'll likely be postseason spectators for the 15th time in the past 17 seasons."It is out of our hands," quarterback Ryan Tannehill said. "We do not have any control in this situation. We are going to need a lot of help."The Jaguars are beyond help. They've lost nine of their past 10 games and seem to be getting worse, scoring a total of 28 points in the three weeks since Cody Kessler replaced Blake Bortles at quarterback."What is on the field is my responsibility," said coach Doug Marrone, who is 15-17 with the Jaguars. "I have done a poor job of communicating, of keeping everyone on track, of keeping everyone consistent. That falls solely on me."GROUNDED JAGSJacksonville is one of two NFL teams (along with Philadelphia) that hasn't had a 100-yard rusher this season. Leonard Fournette gained 95 yards on the ground in consecutive games last month, but hasn't topped 50 yards rushing in the three weeks since ."Obviously it's shocking Kenny Stills Jersey ," said Marrone, whose offensive identity is to run the ball and take advantage of play-action passes.The Jaguars will try to end the skid against Miami, which ranks 31st in the league against the run.ROOKIE'S BREAKOUTNFL active rushing leader Frank Gore will miss the final two games because of a sprained foot, which likely will mean more snaps for Dolphins rookie Kalen Ballage.The fourth-round draft pick from Arizona State rushed for a career-high 123 yards last week, including 75 for his first career touchdown.Ballage wasn't keen to discuss his performance at Minnesota."Not to be rude or anything," he said, "but we lost."HOMECOMING OF SORTSFor Jaguars defensive end Calais Campbell, a two-time all-Atlantic Coast Conference selection at the University of Miami Reshad Jones Jersey , this trip has more meaning than most."It's fun to compete in the old stomping grounds," Campbell said. "I found a lot of success in that city in college."Campbell had hoped to face Gore, one of his college teammates, and still plans on getting Gore's jersey — but not his Dolphins No. 21. Campbell, who spent the first nine years of his career in Arizona, plans on asking Gore for a San Francisco 49ers jersey since they had so many "great battles" in the NFC West.Gore spent 10 years in San Francisco.HOME-FIELD ADVANTAGEThe Dolphins have been awful on the road, but only one AFC team has a better home record than their 6-1 mark.Tannehill has won nine consecutive home starts. He has 17 touchdown passes and a 129.4 rating in his past six home games."It's an honor to get to go out and step foot on that field every time we get to play at home," Tannehill said. "We want to put on a good show for our fans."Jacksonville is 1-5 on the road Minkah Fitzpatrick Jersey , including losses of 40-7 at Dallas and 30-9 at Tennessee.

THOUSAND OAKS Samson Ebukam Jersey , Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Rams have plenty of offseason work to do. Thanks to their run to the Super Bowl, they have a relatively short amount of time to do it.Sean McVay professes to love few things more than his next challenge, and the coach is already hitting the Rams' offseason tasks with extra motivation from the humbling experience of Los Angeles' 13-3 loss to the New England Patriots in Atlanta."If you can't handle getting gut-punched and responding, this business probably isn't for you," a typically energized McVay said Tuesday at the Rams' training complex. "That's the only way that I know how to respond as a coach. I know our coaching staff feels that way. I know our players feel that way, and that's what's powerful. … If things are always easy, you never get a chance to get tested and find out." McVay said he isn't ready for a vacation, and he already has a lengthy to-do list.The Rams must replace quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor, who took over as head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday. McVay is heading to the NFL scouting combine in three weeks, and he will play a role in general manager Les Snead's numerous roster decisions to be made within the compressed timeframe of evaluation before free agency opens next month."When you do go this late into the season, which is certainly a blessing, we're really far behind with a lot of the things that typically take place Josh Reynolds Jersey ," McVay said.The NFC champions were mostly upbeat while they cleaned out their lockers Tuesday, but the Super Bowl defeat will take weeks to fade.Andrew Whitworth is contemplating retirement, yet the left tackle was in the Rams' training complex working out on a bike within hours after the team returned home. Jared Goff had already watched film of the Super Bowl, taking a close look at his offense's numerous failings."It definitely stings," said Goff, who will have his fourth position coach in four seasons. "It's hard. You can't ever really get over it, maybe. It'll be tough, but it'll be definitely something that will motivate us, and something that we'll use. It's hard saying this when we know, had we won, right now we would probably be in the parade, and how fun that would be John Johnson Jersey , and how many different things go along with winning the Super Bowl. It's hard to put that in perspective, really, but there was a lot of good things that came out of this season."With McVay and defensive coordinator Wade Phillips still leading a roster stacked with elite talent, the Rams appear to have a foundation for a prolonged stretch of championship contention. Veterans of the Rams' bad old days don't take this success for granted, even if the ending currently stings."This season is a truly great accomplishment by this team," left guard Rodger Saffold said. "Sean McVay did an unbelievable job being able to turn this team around from a 4-12 team to a 13-3 team with a chance to win the Super Bowl. You can't ask for anything better than that. It hurts right now, but these guys are resilient. These guys show great poise. I expect everybody to come back and have another victorious season, whether it's with me or without me."With that final phrase, Saffold underlined the uncertain nature of any NFL offseason. The stalwart offensive lineman is among several Rams whose futures are undecided.Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, edge rusher Dante Fowler and safety Lamarcus Joyner all were not available Tuesday to discuss their futures as unrestricted free agents. Veterans with hefty salary cap hits in the upcoming season include defensive tackle Michael Brockers, linebacker Mark Barron and cornerback Marcus Peters.Suh's $14 million contract is up, and the 32-year-old veteran gets to choose his career's direction again after he gambled on the Rams' prospects for providing his first career playoff success. Aaron Donald wants Suh back next to him Gerald Everett Jersey , but while Suh appeared to thoroughly enjoy playing in LA, he probably could make bigger money elsewhere.Fowler improved his stock with solid play after his midseason arrival from Jacksonville. He wants to stay, but could be targeted with multiyear offers due to the valuable nature of his position.Joyner played this season on the franchise tag, and the Rams' hesitance to give him a top-dollar, multiyear deal could be foreshadowing.Cornerback Sam Shields played in every game after missing the past two seasons while recovering from repeated concussions. Shields said he "most definitely" wants to play football again next season."I beat all odds, and I feel like myself again," Shields said.Running back C.J. Anderson provided an enormous late-season boost, and the Rams could be interested in keeping him longer than five games. Backup running back Malcolm Brown, whose injury led to Anderson's arrival, is also a free agent."One thing you can say about this team is they'll be back," Anderson said. "McVay and some of the key players have the talent to get them over the hump." The NFL's Rams will pay $24 million to personal seat license holders in St. Louis who filed a class-action lawsuit after the team moved to Los Angeles.The settlement notice was filed in federal court last week but details weren't released until Wednesday.The class-action suit was filed on behalf of thousands of fans who bought PSLs that were good for 30 seasons, which was the length of the lease at the St. Louis stadium formerly known as the Edward Jones Dome. Rams owner Stan Kroenke took the team to California in 2016 after 21 seasons in St. Louis.The lawsuit sought a refund for the nine unused years of the seat license fee John Kelly Jersey , plus damages.Attorneys representing St. Louis Rams PSL holders filed a motion for preliminary approval with U.S. District Court, a process expected to take several weeks."This settlement is about fairness," attorney Ryan Bruning, whose firm represented many of the license holders, said in a statement. "The PSL holders paid for 30 years of NFL football in St. Louis, but got just 21 years. They should get their money back for the years of football they paid for but never received. Under this agreement, they will."An email message left with the Rams was not immediately returned.Personal seat licenses are common in sports, requiring fans to pay a one-time charge for the right to buy season tickets. The amount each PSL holder will receive will depend on the value of the PSL, which ranged from $250 to $4,500, based on the location of the seat.

The Kansas City Chiefs finally tracked down Lamar Jackson when it mattered most.After watching the elusive Ravens quarterback scoot all over the field Sunday Joe Montana Jersey , Justin Houston and Dee Ford combined on an overtime sack that left Jackson holding his ankle. He then had to watch from the sideline as Robert Griffin III threw two incompletions and Kansas City escaped with a 27-24 victory Sunday.Jackson had X-rays on his ankle afterward that came back negative, and he did his best to brush off the injury, likely knowing full-well that Joe Flacco appears ready to return from his own injury."They just wanted to see what happened," Jackson said with a shrug, "but I'm good."He was excellent most of the way.In a matchup of school-yard gunslingers, Jackson threw for 147 yards and two touchdowns without an interception while adding 71 yards on the ground. His counterpart, Patrick Mahomes Len Dawson Jersey , threw for 377 yards and two scores with an interception while leading the Chiefs to the tying touchdown with 53 seconds left.The Chiefs won the toss and got the ball first in overtime, and Mahomes kept finding Tyreek Hill for big chunks of yards. They marched into the red zone before Baltimore's top-ranked defense stiffened, and Harrison Butker kicked a 36-yard field goal to give Kansas City the lead.The Ravens looked as if they'd answer ?if not one-up the Chiefs with a touchdown ?when they got their chance with the ball. Jackson connected with Willie Snead IV to pick up one first down, and his run and another by Kenneth Dixon gave the Ravens another first-down in Chiefs territory.The drive began to unravel after Ronnie Stanley was called for holding, though. The ground-oriented Ravens were forced to go to the air, and the Chiefs 鈥?who led the NFL in sacks coming into the game ?were able to send their best pass-rushing unit onto the field for the second-down play.Houston and Ford met Jackson at the same time, sending him crumpling to the turf."That offense is a problem. (Jackson) is a great athlete Mitch Morse Jersey ," Ford said, "but he knows how to execute the offense. We really had to be on one page as a defense. If you don't, they're going to gash you."The Ravens finished with 198 yards rushing, just two yards shy of their fourth straight 200-yard game. All of them have come with Jackson under center, a byproduct of coach John Harbaugh reinventing the offense to better suit the elusive style of his former Heisman Trophy winner."I was just trying to manage the game," Jackson said. "We knew we had to keep (Mahomes) off the field. We had to pound the ball, throw the ball around the field. We just had to do our job."It wasn't enough to extend the Ravens' three-game win streak. And while linebacker Terrell Suggs said there are no moral victories Chris Jones Jersey , Jackson seemed emboldened by the way his team performed."We're a strong team. We can fight with anybody," he said. "I know a lot of people doubted us to lose this game, but it was now how they thought it was going to be. We just have to get better next week."Now, the question is whether Jackson will have that chance next week.Harbaugh said Flacco was medically cleared to play on Friday from the hip injury that has kept him out, but he wasn't prepared enough to face the Chiefs. Another week of practice could have the Super Bowl-winning quarterback ready to play when Baltimore returns home to face Tampa Bay.They could need him if Jackson's ankle is sore, though he tried to dismiss any such concern."They were concerned. They just wanted to check and see if anything was broken, anything like that. I'm good Tanoh Kpassagnon Jersey ," he said. "We've got to regroup next week and get ready for our next game." The Latest on the conference championship games (all times EST):10:15 p.m.The Patriots are headed to the Super Bowl for the third consecutive season.They needed overtime in Kansas City to do it.After winning the coin toss in overtime, the Patriots never gave Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs‘ offense a chance. Rex Burkhead capped a drive that featured three third-and-10 conversions with a 2-yard touchdown run to give them a 37-31 victory over the Chiefs.New England squandered a 14-0 halftime lead, and the teams waged a back-and-forth fourth quarter before the Chiefs’ Harrison Butker forced overtime with a 39-yard field goal in the closing seconds. The teams combined for 38 points in the fourth quarter.Tom Brady showcased his mastery once more, though. He twice hit Julian Edelman and once found Rob Gronkowski to convert crucial third downs that set Burkhead up for the winning score.

Connor McDavid managed two assists in the Oilers' home opener against the Bruins Adam Cracknell Jersey Womens , beating the visitors 3-2, marking the start of a rather unusual season for Edmonton.For starters, the win finally put the team past the .500 mark for the first time in the regular season. To do it in front of a local crowd at Rogers Place must have been as auspicious as the victory itself, with the Oilers being the final team to host a regular season game. They endured their first four games on the road, including a loss to the New Jersey Devils in Sweden, having survived the junket on both sides of the pond with a 2-2 track record.advertisingBut now, that the Oilers are on more familiar turf, they now have to worry about depth in terms of offense. If not for Connor McDavid, who managed two assists against the Bruins in their latest victory, the Oilers would still be searching for their first win. bruinsdaily.comSo far, McDavid has had a hand in 11 of 13 goals scored by the Oilers, having either assisted or shot pucks over the red line. After losing to the Devils 5-2 and the Bruins 4-1 in their first two games Wayne Simmonds Jersey , McDavid's contribution to their current streak has been critical. He nabbed an assist and the winning goal in overtime over the Rangers and garnered four points (two goals and an assist) in the Oiler's 5-4 win over the Jets.advertisingThe big question is when the rest of the squad will step up and take some pressure off the 21-year-old captain, arguably the best player in the NHL today.It's an easy cop-out to claim that the situation is similar to what the team experienced back in the 1980s when they won an armful of Stanley Cups. One could legitimately claim that much of those triumphs were attributable to Wayne Gretzky, the best hockey player in the world at the time. Without him, the Oilers probably wouldn't have won four league championships.But, while Gretzky still remains as the all-time points leader in the NHL, those accomplishments would not have been possible with some strong support from players like Jari Kurri, who actually scored more goals than Gretzky when they shared the same shifts. There were also superlative performances from the likes of Glenn Anderson, Paul Coffey, Grant Fuhr, and especially Marc Messier who helped Edmonton win their last Stanley Cup in 1990 鈥?two years after Gretzky was traded to the聽Los Angeles Kingsadvertising sportingnews.comMcDavid isn't just on top of the team leaderboard, he totally dominates it, credited with four goals so far Womens Bryan Rust Jersey , as well as seven assists. His performance is much to the detriment of other players who should be doing better, although second and third spots respectively are taken by Ryan Nugent-Hopkins with two goals and five assists, followed by Leon Draisadl with two goals and four assists.But considering that McDavid and Nugent-Hopkins play on the same first line with Ty Rattie (with one goal and one assist), that shift alone has been responsible for more than half of the scoring output. The second line with Dreisadl, Jesse Puljujarvi, and Tobias Reider (playing in place of an injured Drake Caggiula) have contributed less than a quarter of team goals thus far. The third line led by Milan Lucic has two goals, followed by a goose egg for the team's fourth line.advertisingFortunately, it helps that Edmonton's defense, which has been pointed out by pundits as lacking depth, is stepping up, as Darnell Nurse so far has been a positive factor 鈥?and the defenseman to have a goal so far. It's also helped that goaltender Cam Talbot continues to be solid this season with a .906 save percentage and a goals-against average of 2.69. Not great, but certainly reliable.At this writing Josh Jooris Jersey Womens , there are nine players on the active roster that still have yet to register an assist or goal, as if coasting on the results of McDavid, whose average ice time is roughly less than 24 minutes, more than any other forward in the league. He certainly has age on his side to absorb a lot of the workload, although no doubt fans are still waiting for the likes of Reider, Ryan Strome, Kyle Brodziak, and Zack Kassian to show up.advertisingLet's hope it's soon, given that the Oilers will hardly be taking on any slouches in their schedule anytime soon. The face the Predators on Sunday and the short-term schedule is just as grueling. Facing Pittsburgh, Washington and Minnesota鈥攁ll of whom did well in the playoffs and show no signs of slowing down鈥攚ill be a true test for the Oilers, unless they can take at least a few degrees of heat off McDavid. TAMPA, Fla Melker Karlsson Jersey , (AP) — Rookie Jordan Binnington stymied the NHL’s highest scoring team and Brayden Shenn broke out of a goal drought for the surging St. Louis Blues.Binnington made 32 saves, Shenn scored with 58.2 seconds left in overtime and the Blues won their fourth straight game, 1-0 over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday night.St. Louis is 10-4-1 since the start of this calendar year. Binnington has played a prominent role, going 8-1-1 with two shutouts since making his first NHL start on Jan. 7.“We’ve really come together as a team,” Binnington said. “We’re playing smart hockey, disciplined hockey. It’s just fun right now. I was just really excited when Schenner put that one home.”Schenn skated in from the left wing boards and beat Andrei Vasilevskiy for the win.“I owe these guys some goals,” said Schenn, who went 11 straight games without one. “Hopefully tonight’s a step in the right direction.”Vasilevskiy, who dropped to 9-0-1 this season following a loss, stopped 38 shots. The Lightning were coming off a 3-2 shootout loss Tuesday night to Vegas. Tampa Bay has lost consecutive games just twice this season.NHL-leading Tampa Bay has gone 4-3-2 over its last nine games. The Lightning have been held to two or fewer goals in seven of those contests.“You score a bunch of goals and you give up a bunch of goals,” Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said. “Now we’re not scoring, but we’re not giving anything up. So Tyler Ennis Jersey Womens , at some point we’ve got to find a happy medium.”After Colton Parayko hit the post, Vasilevskiy stopped Schenn’s in-close rebound while on his stomach with 7 ½ minutes left in the first.Binnington got a piece of Nikita Kucherov’s shot off a faceoff midway through the second that also hit the crossbar. He also had an in-close save on Victor Hedman during a 2-on-1 early into overtime.“Fastest game all year we’ve played by far,” Schenn said. “They’re a fast team. We moved the puck quick. That’s the games that you want to be part of, those are fun.”Tampa Bay’s No. 2 ranked short-handed unit kept St. Louis off the scoreboard and had a quality scoring on each of three consecutive penalty kills in the second.The Blues outshot Tampa Bay 15-8 during the opening period, and 32-19 through two.“We had plenty of chances during the game and the goalie made some saves,” Cooper said. “Not a whole lot to complain about other than the fact the first half of the game we didn’t have that killer instinct to go to the net and shoot pucks as we did the second half.”St. Louis has outshot its opponent in 18 straight games, which is three away from the team record set during the 2001-02 season.Tampa Bay’s top-ranked power play went 0 for 2.NOTES: Tampa Bay star Steven Stamkos was held off the scoresheet on his 29th birthday. … Blues C Ryan O’Riley had an eight-game point streak (four goals, 11 points) end on his 28th birthday. … St. Louis D Carl Gunnarsson sat out with an upper-body injury. … Tampa Bay RW Ryan Callahan was scratched for the second straight game and fourth time in five games.UP NEXTBlues: Start a home-and-home Saturday with Nashville in St. Louis. The teams then play Sunday in Nashville.Lightning: Host Pittsburgh on Saturday night.

SAN JOSE Womens Henrik Zetterberg Jersey , Calif. (AP) — Ken Hitchcock knows the routine well by now as he begins his tenure as new coach of the Edmonton Oilers. For the fourth time in his long coaching career, Hitchcock has been tasked with taking over a struggling team in the middle of the season.Hitchcock was hired Tuesday as coach of his hometown Oilers after the team fired Todd McLellan with the team languishing in sixth place in the Pacific Division.“It’s not going to change overnight, but we can start taking some steps,” said Hitchcock, who led St. Louis to a first-place finish in 2011-12 after taking over as coach one month into the season. “I told the players today I can take them to a place personally that they can’t get to themselves, but they’ve got to buy into that, and it’s not going to be comfortable at times.”The Oilers have lost six of seven games, getting outscored 27-11 in those losses, in a rough start to McLellan’s fourth season behind the bench. The team missed the playoffs in two of his previous three seasons despite having superstar Connor McDavid on its roster and the Oilers were just 9-10-1 entering their game Tuesday night at San Jose.“It’s tough to pinpoint what we need, but we’re all to blame here Jimmy Howard Jersey ,” McDavid said. “This obviously isn’t on Todd at all. It’s on us as players. That’s just how the business works sometimes. We got to wake up here.”McLellan is the fourth coach to be fired already this season, following John Stevens in Los Angeles, Joel Quenneville in Chicago and Mike Yeo in St. Louis. The Oilers are ahead of only the Blues and the Kings in the Western Conference standings.“Obviously we’re in a rough patch here,” general manager Peter Chiarelli said. “We’re leading into American Thanksgiving. It’s a bit of a template for making the playoffs. I felt I was seeing some things that I had seen last year after not seeing them for quite a fair bit this year, and these recurring themes, I wanted to nip them in the bud.”The 66-year-old Hitchcock announced his retirement in April after a 22-year coaching career, which included a Stanley Cup with the Dallas Stars in 1999. He had two stints in Dallas as well as head coaching stops in Philadelphia (2002-2006), Columbus (2006-2010) and St. Louis (2011-2017).Hitchcock is the third-winningest coach in NHL history with an overall record of 823-506-88-119 (.603 winning percentage). He has guided teams to eight division titles and twice to the best record in the NHL and has an 86-82 playoff record.“It’s definitely going to be tough,” said forward Kyle Brodziak, who played for Hitchcock in St. Louis. “It’s always an adjustment. Guys will have to get used to different styles. Hitch is a hard coach Jonathan Ericsson Jersey , He’s going to be tough on guys and demand a lot. We have to be ready to produce and face the music for sure.”St. Louis made the playoffs in each of Hitchcock’s five full seasons, reaching the Western Conference finals in 2016. The Blues abruptly fired Hitchcock in February 2017, cutting short what was already going to be his last season in St. Louis. He returned to Dallas with the hope of getting the Stars back to the playoffs but a late-season slump kept them out for the second straight year and the eighth time in 10 seasons.In April, Hitchcock said he was retiring for good but changed his mind when the chance to coach the Oilers came up.He pointed to the chance to coach in his native Edmonton in an organization with many people he has worked with in the past, including with Chiarelli on Team Canada in 2014 as a reason to come back. Hitchcock said he also looks forward to coaching the 21-year-old McDavid, who has won the past two scoring titles.“He’s an awesome player. But he has an awesome responsibility,” Hitchcock said. “It’s not just scoring goals and getting points and stuff like that. He sets the competitive tone of the hockey club. I can really help him. I’ve been through some really good players who learned to adapt and do those things. I can help him along there and get him to understand what his responsibility is because he’s carrying too much of the burden and he needs to lighten the load a little bit.”There is plenty of blame to go around for the lackluster start in Edmonton by a top-heavy roster led by McDavid and Leon Draisaitl. Chiarelli traded winger Taylor Hall to New Jersey for defenseman Adam Larsson in June 2016, and then signed forward Milan Lucic to a seven-year, $42 million contract a few days later. Hall won the Hart Trophy as league MVP last season, while Lucic has two goals in his last 66 games.Hitchcock becomes the seventh coach for the Oilers since the team fired Craig McTavish at the end of the 2008-09 season Womens Justin Abdelkader Jersey , following Pat Quinn, Tom Renney, Ralph Krueger, Dallas Eakins, Todd Nelson and McLellan.“He’s always had very good defensive teams,” Lucic said of Hitchcock. “We need to come together as a group no matter who the coach is.” TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Pekka Rinne didn’t miss a beat after being sidelined for two weeks.He made 42 saves after sitting out five games with an injury, and the Nashville Predators beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-1 on Thursday night.“Anytime you miss time, you’re a little nervous,” Rinne said. “I was happy that we played one of the top teams. You have to have a mindset that you might be busy. I felt good Luke Glendening Jersey , and obviously very happy with the win.”Rinne was hurt in the third period of a 5-3 victory at Calgary on Oct. 19. He was stretching to try and stop the puck when teammate Kevin Fiala landed on top of the goalie in an awkward-looking collision.Kyle Turris, Roman Josi, Calle Jarnkrok and Miikka Salomaki scored, and Ryan Johansen had two nifty assists for the Predators. Right wing Viktor Arvidsson, who has eight goals and 12 points, was a late scratch due to a lower-body injury and is day to day.The Predators reached 10 wins in 13 games, the fastest in franchise history. The previous mark was 15 games, done three times.Nashville (6-0-0) became the fifth team in NHL history to start a season with six or more consecutive road wins.Tampa Bay got a goal from Slater Koekkoek, and Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 20 shots. Nashville is the only opponent Vasilevskiy (0-3-1) has never beaten.“We had our chances,” Lightning coach Jon Cooper said.Rinne made an outstanding save four minutes into the game when he lifted his right pad while lunging to the right and stopped Brayden Point’s rebound shot.“He looked really sharp to me Martin Frk Jersey ,” Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. “He was brilliant. He needed to be — they’re a dangerous team.”Rinne has 315 NHL wins and is four short of tying Miikka Kiprusoff for the most by a Finnish-born player.Turris opened the scoring at 6:02 of the first before Josi made it 2-0 with 6.4 seconds left in the period off a backhand pass through the crease by Johansen.“It was pretty unreal,” Rinne said of Johansen’s pass from near the left-wing boards. “A beautiful goal. It was pretty cool to see in a game.”Koekkoek snapped a 16-game goal drought and cut the deficit to 2-1 from the left circle at 14:21 of the second.Tampa Bay outshot the Predators 17-4 in the period.“The ice was lopsided at that point,” Laviolette said.Johansen made another backhand pass to set up Jarnkrok’s goal with 3:18 to play.“They made us pay for the looks that we gave them,” Lightning defenseman Ryan McDonagh said.Salomaki added an empty-netter.Nashville has earned a point in 13 of its last 14 games (11-1-2) against the Lightning.NOTES: Tampa Bay D Victor Hedman (shoulder) sat out his third straight game and could miss games at Montreal and Ottawa this weekend.

WASHINGTON (AP) The Washington Capitals have re-signed general manager Brian MacLellan to a contract extension.MacLellan is in the fourth year of his original four-year deal when he was promoted from assistant GM to replace McPhee. The team confirmed the extension Friday in the midst of its California road trip.MacLellan’s deal casts a shadow over the situation of coach Barry Trotz Justin Williams Jersey , whose contract is up after this season. The GM said after last season he needed to see ”improvements throughout our organization” before discussing an extension for Trotz.MacLellan and Trotz were hired at the same time in 2013 by owner Ted Leonsis and team President Dick Patrick.The Capitals won the Presidents’ Trophy the past two years before losing in the second round to the eventual Stanley Cup-champion Pittsburgh Penguins. They’re in second place in the Metropolitan Division and on the way to their fourth consecutive playoff berth under MacLellan and Trotz.— NEW YORK (AP) — One day after a tough loss to their crosstown rivals, the New York Islanders bounced back with a big win against the league-best Tampa Bay Lightning.Casey Cizikas and Cal Clutterbuck each had a goal and an assist, Thomas Greiss stopped 38 shots, and the Islanders beat the Lightning 5-1 Sunday night.On Saturday, the Islanders lost 2-1 at home to the Rangers.“Yesterday we left the rink with a bitter taste in our mouths and today we did a good job of rebounding and staying the course,” Cizikas said. “It just shows what type of team we are when we play the right way and how successful we can be. When we don’t play the right way, it’s ugly hockey and it’s not pretty. Tonight was a true test and the guys answered.”Brock Nelson, rookie Devon Toews and Josh Bailey also scored as New York had three goals in the opening five minutes and went on to get their 11th win in 14 games. Matt Martin had two assists to give each player on the Islanders’ fourth line two points.Tampa Bay was 18-1-1 in its previous 20. The Lightning — the NHL leaders in wins (35), points (72) and road wins (16) — lost in regulation for just the ninth time this season , but second in the last five games.“Going up against the No. 1 team in the league and to keep them to one goal is definitely big,” Cizikas said. “And it definitely speaks volumes to our defense, our goalies and our forwards. It’s definitely a huge win and something that we got to build momentum going into the next one.”Ryan McDonagh had a goal and Andrei Vasilevskiy finished with 23 saves for Tampa Bay.“It’s tough to spot a team a 3-0 lead in this league,” Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. “You’re playing with fire. It cost us.”With Tampa Bay skating with an extra attacker with the goalie pulled, Greiss — who had 32 stops over the last 40 minutes — made a nice shoulder save sliding to his right on Steve Stamkos with about 4 ½ minutes left to preserve New York’s 4-1 lead.Bailey scored an empty-netter with 52 seconds left to cap the scoring.While the Islanders were home for the second straight day, the Lightning were playing on the road for the second night in a row — coming off a 5-3 win at Buffalo.“It was a big win but they had a tough back-to-back,” Greiss said. “Can’t overthink it and got to be ready for the next one.”Trailing by three after one period, the Lightning picked up their intensity in the second and outshot the Islanders 22-14.However, Cizikas pushed New York’s lead to 4-0 with just under nine minutes left in the period as he beat Vasilevskiy from the left side for his 11th.McDonagh got the Lightning on the scoreboard with 1:48 left in the middle period Scott Darling Jersey , beating Greiss from the left circle for his fifth. Stamkos had an assist on the play, giving him seven assists and nine points in his last six games.The Islanders went on the power play just 20 seconds in, when Tampa Bay’s Erik Cernak was whistled for high-sticking. They took advantage 1:01 later as Jordan Eberle sent a pass from behind the goal line to Vasilevskiy’s right across in front to Nelson, who fired it past the Lightning goalie on the stick side from the right circle. It was Nelson’s 16th, tying him with captain Anders Lee for the team lead.Clutterbuck doubled the lead at 4:27 with his third of the season, and first since Nov. 15, tipping a pass off Vasilevskiy’s left skate with the puck fluttering in the air over the goal line.Toews made it 3-0 just 16 seconds later with a slap shot from the left point that gave the Islanders three goals on five shots.“We drew a penalty, we were able to get a goal and then you follow up and we got a little momentum,” New York coach Barry Trotz said. “Before they knew it Youth Sebastian Aho Jersey , they were in a little bit of a hole.”The Lightning didn’t get their first shot on goal until 9:04 in, when Greiss stopped a slap shot by Yanni Gourde.NOTES: Lightning D Mikhail Sergachev was fined $2,403.67 by the NHL, the maximum allowed under the league’s CBA, for cross-checking Buffalo’s Johan Larsson in the third period of the Lightning’s win Saturday night. … Tampa Bay D Victor Hedman left the game early in the second period after being accidentally hit in the face by an official. He did not return. … The Lightning lost against a Metropolitan Division team for the first time in 13 games this season. … Mathew Barzal had an assist on Nelson’s goal, giving him a team-leading 29. … New York scored at least four goals for the seventh time in the last 14 games.UP NEXTLightning: At Dallas on Tuesday night to finish a three-game trip.Islanders: Host St. Louis on Tuesday night.
