(Sports Network) - The Edmonton Oilers have lost three of their last four games, but theyve been able to earn points in their last two outings. Jacquizz Rodgers Womens Jersey . Theyll look for two points tonight when they host the Colorado Avalanche at Rexall Place. Edmonton posted an overtime win Saturday in Ottawa and then lost in OT to visiting Toronto on Wednesday. Tim Connolly scored the game-winning goal just 1:39 into overtime to lift the Maple Leafs to the 4-3 decision. Ben Eager, Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle lit the lamp for the Oilers, who are 15 points out of the Wests final postseason berth. "We had a slow start but came back hard and played a good game," Eager said. "We had our chances to win, but unfortunately couldnt convert." Nikolai Khabibulin was tagged for all four goals on 26 shots in Wednesdays defeat. The setback ended Edmontons four-game home winning streak and it came at the start of a three-game homestand. The Oilers, who will close the residency Sunday against Vancouver, are 15-8-4 as the host this season. The Oilers hope to get defenseman Theo Peckham back tonight after he sat out the last six games due to a facial injury suffered in practice. Fellow blueliner Corey Potter is also questionable after missing the last two games with a groin injury. Edmonton forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is still out indefinitely after re- injuring his shoulder earlier this month. The No. 1 overall pick of last summers draft has 13 goals and 35 points in 40 games as a rookie. The Avalanche, meanwhile, will try to pick up their first road win in nearly a month when they visit the Oilers for tonights Northwest Division battle. The Avalanche are 0-1-1 so far on a four-game road trip and the club has lost four straight away from Denver since recording a 3-1 decision in Los Angeles on Jan. 21. Colorado has also lost seven of its last nine as the guest and is just 12-13-3 as the road team this season. Colorado will likely need to pick up its road play if it wants to qualify for the postseason. The Avs are currently five points out of a playoff spot in the Western Conference and 13 of their remaining 24 games are on the road. The Avalanche were handed a 3-1 setback Wednesday night in Vancouver and Colorado lost more than the game, as goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere left the contest with a groin injury. Giguere started the game in net, but left late in the first period after giving up a goal on nine shots. Semyon Varlamov let in one goal on 21 shots the rest of the way and will likely start tonights test. Goaltender Cedrick Desjardins was recalled from Colorados AHL affiliate in Lake Erie and is expected to serve as Varlamovs backup tonight. Colorado also played Wednesday without forward Peter Mueller, who was a late scratch due to a torso injury. He could return tonight. Fellow forward T.J. Galiardi left Wednesdays game with an upper-body injury and will miss the next seven-to-ten days. The Oilers have won three of four meetings against Colorado this season and have taken five of eight overall in the series. Edmonton is also 5-0-2 in the last seven games as the host against the Avalanche. Julio Jones Black Jersey . Victorias Ryan Cochrane followed up his 2008 Olympic bronze medal with a silver in the same event, the mens 1500-metre freestyle, on Saturday. Roddy White Womens Jersey . The Jets now have 64 points, which is the same as eighth place Toronto in the Eastern Conference, one less than Southeast Division leading Florida, but both the Leafs and Panthers have games in hand. http://www.shopnflfalconsgears.com/nike-matt-ryan-pink-jersey/ . -- Thousands of fans turned out in a small town in central Alberta to see the Stanley Cup. Peter Konz Jersey . The Toronto Marlies scored four times in the first period and never looked back as they thumped the Hamilton Bulldogs 6-1 on Saturday in American Hockey League action. Todd McClure Jersey . -- Boston Red Sox outfielder Carl Crawford will be shut down this week to let his left wrist heal and its unlikely hell be ready to play by opening day. ARLINGTON, Texas -- Austin Jackson had to run a lot harder than Prince Fielder for the same result. Fielder got to jog around the bases after a go-ahead three-run home run for the Tigers, an inning before Jackson raced home for his first career inside-the-park homer in Detroits 6-2 victory over the AL West-leading Texas Rangers on Friday night. "Yeah, they both count the same," Fielder said with a laugh. Jackson got his first career inside-the-park homer in the seventh inning after right fielder Nelson Cruz made a diving attempt to catch the ball, which bounced in front of him and then over his glove and to the wall. By then, Jackson was in full stride and third-base coach Gene Lamont was waving him home. "He had that look in his eyes like he wanted me to go, and he sent me," Jackson said. "Its one of those things, you dont think it will ever happen like that." It was the Tigers first inside-the-park homer since Curtis Granderson five years ago. Texas hadnt allowed one since Clevelands Grady Sizemore had one at Rangers Ballpark in Sept. 24, 2006. Max Scherzer (11-6) struck out eight in six innings for his 10th win in his last 13 decisions since May 10. Fielder 20th homer put the Tigers up 4-2 in the sixth and chased Scott Feldman (6-7), who had won his previous six decisions before the changeup that stayed right over the heart of the plate. "When you have Prince in your lineup, youre always one swing away from getting the game back in your favour," Scherzer said. "Thats kind of what happened." The Tigers, who lost the ALCS in six games to Texas last October, have won 25 of 38 games since losing two straight on their last trip to Texas in late June. Jackson, who is from nearby Denton, led off the fourth with a triple to right-centre. He scored on Miguel Cabreras single, his 96th RBI that tied him again with Josh Hamilton of the Rangers for most in the majors. Hamilton got his 96th RBI in the first inning with his 31st homer, a 419-foot shot to straightaway centre that tied him with Adam Dunn of the White Sox for the major league lead. "Scherzer was flirting with a little disaster early but he got settled in pretty good," Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. "We got a couple of big hits and they didnt." Detroit had two outs in the sixth before Andy Dirks reached on an infield single and Cabrera followed with a siingle. Matt Bosher Jersey. Fielder then pulled a pitch several rows deep into the stands in right. It is the seventh consecutive 20-homer season for Fielder, who is in the first year of a $214 million, nine-year deal with Detroit. After Jacksons inside-the-park homer, Cruz appeared to reach for his back but stayed in the game. Two batters later, he dropped Cabreras easy popup for an error that extended the inning. Cruz didnt take the field in the top of the eighth and the Rangers said he was out because of lower back stiffness. "I dont know if it affected him on the dropped ball, I just think he dropped it, but thats a lot of poundage hitting the ground," manager Ron Washington said. "He had a stiff back, so he came out, got some treatment, feeling better. I think hell be a player tomorrow, weve just got to wait and see." Feldman had won his previous six decisions after starting the season with six consecutive losses. He struck out two and walked one in 5 2-3 innings. The Rangers said, according to Elias, the right-hander was only the second pitcher in major league history to win six consecutive decisions immediately after starting the season with a losing streak of six or more games. Doyle Alexander started 0-8 for the Yankees and Blue Jays in 1983 before winning his next seven decisions. Texas led 2-0 in the third when Ian Kinsler had a leadoff double and scored on a single by Elvis Andrus, who was thrown out trying to stretch his hit into a double. Adrian Beltre was hit by a pitch in the upper left leg with two outs in the third, then picked the ball up and tossed it back to Scherzer. Cruz and Michael Young followed with singles to load the bases but David Murphys flyout ended the inning. Scherzer was never again in serious trouble. He struck out the last three batters of the sixth before coming out after 112 pitches. "They were one or two hits away from probably knocking Scherzer out early," Leyland said. "He kind of gathered himself and pitched very well." Notes: Scherzer is 11-3 in 17 career games vs. AL West teams. He is 4-0 in seven starts against the Rangers in regular-season games. ... CF Hamilton had a sliding catch in the fifth that turned into an inning-ending double play because Alex Avila couldnt get back to first base. ... Avila extended his hitting streak to 11 games with two hits. ... Young had three hits and has a 10-game hitting streak. ' ' '
