their lowest-ever finish in 15 MLS seasons

EDMONTON -- Before closing the curtain on another disappointing season, the Edmonton Oilers at least offered up some hope for next year. Kamar Aiken Jersey . Nail Yakupov scored his first career hat trick as the Oilers closed out their season with a 7-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday. The Russian rookie scored all three of his goals in an explosive third period for Edmonton, which scored five goals in a span of 3:35. "It felt amazing to have a three-goal game," Yakupov said. "We finished strong and I think everybody feels good about that. We didnt make the playoffs, but I think we can go into the summer feeling good about the last couple of games and our season next year." Fellow rookie Justin Schultz had a goal and three assists, Jordan Eberle two goals and Jerred Smithson another marker for the Oilers (19-22-7), who won their last two games of the season but only three of their last 12. Oilers head coach Ralph Krueger hopes that the win over Vancouver and a 6-1 victory over Minnesota on Friday are positive signs for the future. "It was a character finish for us," he said. "Were not pleased with our final placing and wanted to desperately still be playing hockey after today, but it didnt happen. We had to answer a question with 10 minutes to go today and that was how do we want to send our fans into a summer? I was really pleased that they had that explosion and lets remember those cheering fans and create that a lot more than we did this year." "We threw our sticks into the crowd and they didnt throw them back, so I guess thats a good sign," added Oilers captain Shawn Horcoff. The Oilers have missed the playoffs for seven straight seasons since losing in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals to Carolina in 2006. Derek Roy and Tom Sestito responded for the Canucks (26-15-7), who rested several of their key players in advance of the playoffs. No. 3 Vancouver will meet the No. 6 San Jose Sharks in the first round of the playoffs. "It was not the ideal way to finish the season, but well have to put this one behind us and get ready for the first game of the playoffs," said Canucks assistant captain Kevin Bieksa, who returned to the lineup after missing the last five games. "There is never an excuse for seven goals against. We were playing well for 50 minutes and felt good about our game and made a couple of mistakes and it snowballed. "Youre not going to win too many playoff games unless you put forth a 60-minute effort, so we have to be better." The first goal of the game came three minutes remaining in the first when the Canucks struck on the power play. Vancouver exhibited some great tic-tac-toe passing before Jannik Hansen found Roy at the side of the net for an easy tap-in past Edmonton starter Devan Dubnyk. Vancouver had nine first period shots to Edmontons seven on Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo. Another late goal highlighted what was otherwise an uneventful second period as the Oilers tied it up with 1:20 remaining. Eberle was able to tip a Schultz shot through Luongos legs for his 15th of the season. Edmonton took a 2-1 lead two minutes into the third period on a two-man advantage. Luongo stopped a point blast from Schultz, but Yakupov was there to lift in the rebound. The Canucks knotted the game back up two minutes later as Dubnyk allowed a bad rebound on a soft shot by Kevin Bieksa and Sestito banged it in to make it 2-2. The Canucks had a good chance to regain the lead midway through the third as Keith Ballard had a breakaway coming out of the penalty box, but Dubnyk stopped him and a subsequent point blank shot from Maxim Lapierre. Edmontons goal barrage started at 13:17 as Taylor Hall made a no-look backhand pass from behind the net that went right to the stick of Schultz in the blue paint for the goal. Just 59 seconds later Yakupov got his second of the night as Luongo coughed the puck up to Magnus Paajarvi behind the net and he sent it in front for Yakupov to put into the empty cage. Eberle made 5-2 only 21 seconds later as he walked around defender Frank Corrado and lifted his second of the game up high on Luongo. Yakupov completed the hat trick a little over a minute later when picked up a rebound in front and lifted a backhand shot into the net for his 17th of the season. That gave the 19-year-old the lead in goal-scoring this season among rookies. Edmonton added another one at 16:42 as Smithson beat Luongo with a hard shot from the slot. Notes: It was the final game of the season for both teams and the fifth meeting of the season. The Oilers and Canucks split four their previous games this season... The Canucks opted to sit a large portion of their usual starting lineup as they prep for the playoffs. Sitting out were defencemen Dan Hamhuis, Jason Garrison, Christopher Tanev and Alex Edler, forwards Alexandre Burrows and Daniel Sedin and goalie Cory Schneider. It was the second game that Schneider has sat out with an undisclosed injury and it has not been confirmed if he will be available for the start of the playoffs... Out with injuries for the Oilers were Ales Hemsky, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Ryan Whitney and Lennart Petrell... Oilers rookie defenceman Justin Schultz has been added to Team Canada for the World championships in Sweden, joining Edmonton teammates Hall, Eberle and Dubnyk. Daryl Smith Jersey .

NEWARK, N.J. -- Steve Bernier scored at 4:19 of overtime and Cory Schneider made 15 saves and the New Jersey Devils shut out the Buffalo Sabres 1-0 on Saturday. Schneider has won back-to-back games after beating Carolina on Friday night. Andy Greene stole the puck and passed it to Bernier, who beat Jhonas Enroth with a high shot for the Devils. Enroth stopped 23 shots for the Sabres. Devils forward Ryan Carter left the game just 12 seconds into his first shift on the ice at the 2:05 mark of the first period when he lost a fight to Marcus Foligno. The two squared off away from the play and the 6-foot-3, 223-pound Foligno threw a right hand that caught Carter square on the side of his helmet. That ended the fight and sent Carter to the locker room for treatment. He did not return. The Devils held a 9-3 advantage in shots in the first period and nearly scored in the final minute when Patrik Elias point-blank attempt banged off the left post. Schneideer drew cheers when he made a kick save to deny a point-blank shot by Tyler Ennis of the Sabres near the end of the second period. Jeremy Zuttah Ravens Jersey. The Devils held a 15-10 shot edge through two periods. The Sabres had a chance early in the third period when Ville Leino skated in alone, but his shot was knocked wide by Schneider. Enroth foiled a shot on his doorstep by Travis Zajac late of the third with a brilliant glove save. NOTES: The Devils killed all three Sabres power plays to make them 16 for 16 over their past four games. ... Patrick Kaleta is out for the rest of the season for Buffalo after a torn ACL in a game for Rochester of the AHL on Friday. Kaleta was sent down by the Sabres on Nov. 2. ... The Sabres snapped a five-game losing streak with 3-2 overtime victory over Toronto on Friday. ... Jaromir Jagr scored the 692nd goal of his career on Friday against Carolina, tying him with Steve Yzerman for eighth place on the NHL list. cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys Ray Ban Outlet Michael Kors Outlet Michael Kors Sale Cheap Michael Kors ' ' '
