EDMONTON -- Injuries have put a crimp in many of the plans for the top lines of the Edmonton Oilers, but at least one pairing looks to be a lock. Fake Yeezy 700 China . Jordan Eberle had a goal and two assists and linemate David Perron scored twice as the Oilers won their fourth consecutive pre-season game, defeating the New York Rangers 5-3 on Tuesday night. "Were playing well together, said Eberle of Perron, who was acquired in the summer in a trade with St. Louis for Magnus Paajarvi. "We play very similar games and I think that helps. He really reads the play. Chemistry is a tough thing to find in this league and when you find it, it is something to keep. Obviously the confidence in each other is there." Eberle himself has looked very solid in the lead-up to the regular season, recording a league-high eight points in four exhibition games. "You cant look too much into pre-season, but it has been a good start," he said. "Were just anxious to get going and do the real thing. Ive worked all summer to get to a point where I felt good about my game and thats what the pre-season is about." Taylor Hall and Ben Eager also scored for the Oilers, who improved to 5-1-1 in exhibition action. Hall will be under the gun playing centre for the first time at the NHL level with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins likely out for a month recovering from shoulder surgery and Sam Gagner reportedly expected to miss up to two months after suffering a broken jaw in a pre-season stick to the face from Vancouvers Zack Kassian. However, Hall said he is being careful not to put too much pressure on himself despite the new position. "Im just trying to have fun with it," he said. "The second you start thinking too much and have a billion thoughts going through your head when you have the puck is when you dont play well. Im just trying to play relaxed and in the moment." Marc Staal, Dan Girardi and J.T. Miller replied for the Rangers (1-3-0) who lost games on back-to-back nights in Alberta. New York struck first eight minutes into the opening period on Tuesday after Oilers defender Jeff Petry hit the side of his own net with a pass and Mats Zuccarello was able to get it behind the net and send it back to Staal at the point. Staals long shot through traffic beat Edmonton starter Jason LaBarbera glove side. Edmonton got that goal back five minutes later just as a power play concluded as Hall was able to tip a Justin Schultz shot past Rangers goalie Martin Biron. The Oilers took a 2-1 lead on a goal with just 30 seconds remaining in the first period as Mark Arcobello sent a long lead pass toward the Rangers net and Perron was able to out-hustle New York defenceman Aaron Johnson to the puck and chip it past Biron for his fourth of the pre-season. Edmonton made it 3-1 on a power play goal just past the one-minute mark of the second period. Petry sent the puck in front of the net and Perron was there to make a perfect deflection into the net for his second goal of the game. The Rangers came right back a minute later, as Miller picked up a rebound in front of the Edmonton net and hooked it past LaBarbera in his first game of the pre-season for New York. New York had a glorious chance to tie it midway through the second frame with a two-man advantage, however it went awry as Eager got the puck just as he was coming out of the box for the first penalty and his shot hit the post before coming back to hit Birons leg and carom into the net for a short-handed goal. The Rangers controlled the bulk of the play in the third, but Edmonton padded its lead as rookie Darnell Nurse send a pass from behind the net and Eberle was able to lift a backhand shot in to make it 5-2. New York finished the scoring with a power play goal on a point shot by Girardi with four minutes remaining. The Rangers continue their western Canadian pre-season trip in Vancouver on Thursday. The Oilers are off until Friday when they face the Dallas Stars in Oklahoma City.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Denver Broncos locked up a shutdown cornerback, only his name wasnt Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. The Broncos spent the first day of free agency bolstering their defensive backfield, agreeing to a four-year deal with Pro Bowl safety T.J. Ward on Tuesday afternoon and then hours later reaching an agreement on a six-year contract with cornerback Aqib Talib. Talib and Ward will play in a secondary that will be without Champ Bailey, who was released last week, and may be moving on from Rodgers-Cromartie, who entered free agency without a new deal from the Broncos. The 28-year-old Talib had quite a year for New England last season, with teams largely choosing to go the other way rather than pick on him. Sound familiar? It was the same way for Bailey in his prime. By agreeing to a deal, Talib seemed to show theres no bad blood between him and the Broncos after he hurt his knee early in the AFC championship game against Denver when he was bumped by Wes Welker on a crossing route. The leagues officiating chief later ruled it a legal hit by Welker. ESPN first announced the agreement with Talib, which is reportedly worth $57 million. The Broncos also are reportedly interested in defensive lineman DeMarcus Ware, who was released by Dallas on Tuesday in a salary-cap move. Talib will be reunited with cornerback Chris Harris Jr., whos also a former Kansas Jayhawk. Harris played opposite of Rodgers-Cromartie last season before blowing out a knee against San Diego in the divisional round. Harris later posted on his Twitter account: "I had to call my Fam Talib to see if it was real." Yep, its real. The Broncos also brought in Ward, who had 129 tackles and two interceptions for Cleveland in 2013. The Broncos are looking for some stability at a position that got juggled last year, with the loss of Rahim Moore and the inconsistent play of Duke Ihenacho. Veteran Mike Adams, also formerly of Clevelannd, started the season as a reserve but ended up in the starting lineup. Fake Jordan Shoes. "Hes a young, explosive strong safety who is going to bring a lot of energy and toughness to our secondary," Broncos boss John Elway said of Ward. Denvers big receiving news Tuesday was a two-year extension for fourth receiver Andre Caldwell, who could move up a notch if the Broncos part ways with Eric Decker. Caldwell came on late in the season when Welker was sidelined with a concussion. The 28-year-old Caldwell had 11 of his 16 receptions over the final three games of the season. His most productive game in 2013 was against San Diego on Dec. 12, when he had six receptions for 59 yards and two TDs. Caldwell was held without a catch in the 43-8 loss to Seattle in the Super Bowl. "Hopefully I can compete for an extended role this year and contribute a lot more to the team," Caldwell said. Caldwell received an invitation from Peyton Manning to attend off-season workouts at Duke University. Last spring, only Welker, Demaryius Thomas and Decker were invited to work on their chemistry with the five-time NFL MVP quarterback. "Its just a process of building confidence with those guys all the way from April," Caldwell said. Ward is expected to be a main piece around which the Broncos reshape a defence that was obliterated by an injury epidemic last season, losing Von Miller, Harris, Derek Wolfe, Kevin Vickerson and Moore. The Broncos also could seek a replacement for linebacker Wesley Woodyard, a free agent who is exploring other options. Theyll need a new starting guard now that Zane Beadles has agreed to terms with Jacksonville. Running back Knowshon Moreno is a free agent as well after rushing for 1,038 yards and 10 TDs in 2013. The Broncos also hired two new coaches on Tuesday, bringing in assistant offensive line coach James Cregg and offensive quality control coach Bo Hardegree. ' ' '
LOS ANGELES -- Just as the Dodgers were wrapping up their most successful month since moving to Los Angeles in 1958, the NL West leaders acquired infielder Michael Young from Philadelphia to bolster a potential playoff run. Henry Ellenson Jersey . Adrian Gonzalez hit a tying single in the seventh inning and pinch-hitter Mark Ellis singled home the go-ahead run in the eighth for a 2-1 victory over the San Diego Padres on Saturday night. The Dodgers also received cash from the Phillies in exchange for minor league left-hander Rob Rasmussen. Young waived his no-trade clause in a deal that was completed 10-15 minutes before the 9 p.m. PDT deadline to make him eligible for the playoffs with the Dodgers, according to general manager Ned Colletti. "Someone that brings obviously World Series experience, one of the classier people in the game, a winner," Colletti said. "He can play first or third, can come off the bench. Someone we feel has a lot left." Los Angeles manager Don Mattingly said Young could spell Juan Uribe at third base or Gonzalez at first. "We like the guys that we have, but Michael just adds to it," he said. Mattingly spoke to Uribe about the deal. "I dont feel bad," he said. "I dont feel mad. Im good. Hes a good player. He can help the team, too." Young batted .276 with eight home runs and 42 RBIs in 126 games with the Phillies this season, including seven hits in his last 10 at-bats before the trade. He has made 101 starts at third base and 17 at first. The 36-year-old veteran is a .300 career hitter with 185 homers and 1,026 RBIs. "He makes us stronger," Mattingly said. Young was acquired by the Phillies last December from Texas. He is from nearby Covina. The Rangers paid a portion of Youngs salary to Philadelphia, which is passing it on to the Dodgers, Colletti said. The rest of Youngs new teammates were enthusiastic about his impending arrival. "One of the better human beings around, not just baseball players," said Skip Schumaker, who attended UC Santa Barbara after Young did and knows him from alumni games. "Hes going to fit right in. Anybody in the big leagues would love to have him." Gonzalez and Young were teammates in Texas. "Another guy who knows how to play the game, a great guy in the clubhouse," Gonzalez said. "He knows how to prepare and be ready for at-bats." The Dodgers ended August with a 23-6 record, their most wins in a month since 1958. The club record of 25 was set in July 1947 and equaled in August 1953, when the team played in Brooklyn. "Weve stayed healthy and our bullpen has done very well," Gonzalez said. "You cant win without pitching. Days like today, we won with our pitching and defence." Brian Wilson (1-0) came on in relief to earn the victory -- his first since joining the Dodgers last week. Kenley Jansen pitched the ninth for his 23rd save in 25 chances. Nick Vincent (3-2) took the loss, allowing two hits on nine pitches in the eighth after relieving starter Andrew Cashner. Dodgers starter Chris Capuano allowed one run and eight hits in seven innings, struck out seven and walked one. "There were a number of 3-2 and 2-0 changeups, and when a pitcher does that and throws it in the strike zone, its pretty tough," Padres manager Bud Black said. "And he had enough velocity to keep us honest. We got some hits off him, but we just couldnt string them together and get the big blow." Schumaker led off the eighth with a double and was sacrificed to third by Tim Federowicz. Schumaker scored on Ellis single to centre, one of the Dodgers 13 hits, equaling their amount in Fridays series-opening win. The Dodgers tied it at 1 on Gonzalezs RBI single with one out in the seventh. Pinch-hitter Jerry Hairston Jr. and Carl Crawford opened the inning with singles. Cashner intentionally walked Andre Ethier to load the bases before Uribe grounded out to end the inning. Ronny Cedeno homered with two outs in the fourth for the Padres. Cashner gave up one run and 10 hits while striking out seven and walking three. The Padres, who had 10 hits, have lost seven of nine. NOTES: The Dodgers transferred injured pitcher Josh Beckett to the 60-day DL to make room for Young. ... Dodgers OF Matt Kemp was set to be the DH again at Class-A Rancho Cucamonga on Saturday and Sunday. Kemp has been on the DL since July 24 with a sprained left ankle. "His timing doesnt sound very good yet," Mattingly said. "Its hard to jump in at 94-95 (mph) when you havent seen it in a while. Matt wants to be swinging the ball good when he comes back." ... The Padres activated OF Kyle Blanks from the 15-day DL and optioned RHP Anthony Bass to Triple-A Tucson. Blanks was 1 for 11 with a run scored and a walk in four rehab games. ... Padres 3B Chase Headley, who left Fridays game in the fifth inning with back stiffness, didnt show much improvement overnight so he didnt play. Brooklyn Nets Gear . In five games last month, Billings led all scorers with 11 goals, 27 assists and 38 points as the Rock posted a 2-3 record. Kenny Anderson Jersey . 5 Trade Deadline is drawing closer and teams will be deciding on whether to buy or sell.Washington, DC (SportsNetwork.com) - Myles Davis continued his strong play with 19 points and Xavier went into Verizon Center and stunned No. 21 Georgetown 66-53 on Tuesday. Davis shot 6-of-9 from the floor, finishing in double figures for the fifth straight game, and Matt Stainbrook scored 12 for Xavier (14-7, 5-4 Big East), which had lost its last five road games, including four straight to open conference play. We knew we could do this, Davis said of the win. We just prepped so hard and we knew the opportunity we had in front of us and we just took full advantage of it. Georgetown (14-6, 6-3) was coming off four straight wins and six of seven since losing to Xavier in the conference opener for both teams on Dec. 31. DVauntes Smith-Rivera paced the Hoyas with 13 points in the unlikely setback. Give them credit, they really defended well, Smith-Rivera admitted.

Georgetown countered with four straight points on free throws, but Myles Davis connected on a pair of triples later in the half and Xavier led 29-16 at halftime. The margin was double figures until Joshua Smiths three-point play with 4 1/2 minutes to play. Smith-Rivera followed with a layup that had Georgetown within 54-47. The Hoyas could have cut it down even more on their next possession, but Tre Campbell missed a 3 and Smith, who grabbed the offensive rebound and got fouled, bricked the front end of a 1-and-1. Stainbrooks layup on a nifty inbounds feed from Dee Davis with 1:26 left made it an 11-point game, and Xavier held on.
