EDMONTON -- Michael Raffl looked like he had won the lottery. Jonathan Broxton Jersey . The 25-year-old rookie forward scored the winner on his first career shootout attempt as the Philadelphia Flyers overcame an early deficit to earn a 4-3 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday. "I didnt really expect to be sent out there," Raffl said. "I was ready to hold my helmet and then I heard that I was going third and I was like nice. I really enjoyed it. "It was nice to get the chance and it going in made it even nicer. Its always nice to score a goal, and to have it be the winner was even better" Wayne Simmonds had a pair of goals and Scott Hartnell also scored for the Flyers (18-16-4), who have won four out of their last five games and snapped a five-game losing streak on the road as they started a six-game trip in Edmonton. "Weve been struggling on the road, so to start off this long road trip with a pretty solid victory is very nice," said Flyers goalie Steve Mason, who was only called upon to face 16 shots. "We just need to carry it through to our next game and keep building on this." It was the third consecutive two-goal game for Simmonds, who has seven goals in his last five outings. He was the first Flyer to have three straight multiple-goal games since Reggie Leach in 1981. "Obviously it has been a good stretch for me," Simmonds said. "Its been even better that the team has been starting to win and piling up the two points most nights. It feels good. Ive just been getting the bounces." Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and David Perron responded for the Oilers (13-24-4), who had a two-game winning streak end and have lost seven of their last nine. "It wasnt our best game thats for sure, but sometimes you have to take a look at what youve done," Hall said. "A back-to-back after a three-day break isnt necessarily the easiest thing to do. Thats not really an excuse, but when you look back at the schedule sometimes theres reasons for why you dont do well. When we have a schedule like that, we have to keep it as simple as possible and make sure were not playing a mistake-filled game." It was the first game Edmonton goalie Ilya Bryzgalov had played against his old Flyers teammates since Philadelphia bought him and his hefty long-term contract out during the summer. "I know theyre not going to quit," the goalie said of his Flyer foes. "I knew what was coming, I knew they were going to play hard and they were going to get lots of pucks to the net. Thats the style they play, aggressive. "Playing back to back nights after three days off, its not easy. I think we battled through and tried our best. Its great to get the point. Edmonton got off to a very quick start to the game, scoring on its first shot just 32 seconds in. Hall picked the pocket of Flyers defenceman Braydon Coburn deep in the Philadelphia zone and beat Mason with a quick wrist shot high to the glove side for his 15th goal of the season. The Oilers made it 2-0 four minutes into the first period as Nugent-Hopkins made a nice move at the blue-line to give himself some space and beat Mason with a shot from the slot. A couple of Oilers hit milestones with assists on the goal, as Hall recorded his 100th NHL assist and captain Andrew Ference his 200th point. The Flyers started to pick it up for the remainder of the period, but could get any of their 11 shots past Bryzgalov in the Edmonton net. Bryzgalov came up huge to start the second period as he stopped Sean Couturier on a pair of short-handed opportunities in tight, including one on a diving stick save. The Oilers have allowed a league-high eight short-handed goals this season. The Flyers got on the board three-and-a-half minutes into the second period on a power play of their own as Simmonds was able to tip in a blast from the top of the circle by Claude Giroux, who extended his point streak to eight games. Philadelphia tied the game 2-2 with eight minutes to play in the second on another power-play goal as a pretty tic-tac-toe passing display had Bryzgalov spinning around in his net before Simmonds was able to put his second of the game into a wide-open cage. Edmonton was out-shot 14-3 in the second period. The Oilers came close to regaining the lead six minutes into the third on a power play but Sam Gagner hit the crossbar and Jeff Petry a post with the man advantage. Edmonton did strike for a goal on their next power play with eight minutes remaining in the third, however, as Perron banked a short from the side of the net off Flyers defender Niklas Grossmann and into the net for his team-leading 16th of the season and 100th career NHL goal. Philadelphia came right back to tie the game 3-3 with five-and-a-half minutes left with their third power play goal as Hartnell tipped a Kimmo Timonen shot past a frustrated Bryzgalov on a five-on-three opportunity. Mason was able to keep it a tied game with two minutes left as he stoned Perron with a pivotal glove save on a breakaway with two minutes remaining to send the game to extra time. The shots favoured the Flyers 36-15 after the third period. Notes: It was the second and final meeting between the two teams this season, with the Flyers winning the first game 4-2 in Philadelphia on Nov. 9. The Flyers came into the game without a win in Edmonton since March 19, 2001a Oilers defenceman Corey Potter missed the game with a groin strain. Recent AHL call-up Martin Marincin drew in as his replacementa Flyers winger Steve Downie returned from an upper body injury and fellow forward Adam Hall was also able to dress after missing practice on Friday with the flu. Defenceman Eric Gustafsson remained out with a knee injury. Jedd Gyorko Jersey .com) - Houston Texans interim head coach Wade Phillips confirmed Monday that starting quarterback Case Keenum sustained a sprained right thumb during Sundays 25-3 loss in Indianapolis. Chris Carpenter Jersey . The result means Atletico Madrid now tops the table, with Madrid level on points in second and Barcelona a point behind in third with nine games remaining as the title race shapes up to be the closest in years. http://www.baseballcardinalsauthority.com/Dexter-Fowler-Jersey/ ." One game is checked off, 15 remain and the next one to get crossed out could come Tuesday night when the defending champion Heat host the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference playoff series.(Sports Network) - While Alfonso Soriano and Alex Rodriguez continue to turn back the clock, New York Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda would just simply like to dial things back a few weeks. Kuroda tries to rebound from two straight subpar efforts and secure a series victory for the Yankees on Wednesday night in the finale of a three-game set versus the Toronto Blue Jays. Kuroda has been roughed up over back-to-back losses to Boston and Tampa Bay after having gone 4-1 with a 0.94 earned run average over seven starts prior. He gave up just five earned runs over 48 innings in that span, but the Red Sox got to him for five runs -- three earned -- and a season-high 11 hits over 5 2/3 innings on Aug. 17. The right-hander hoped to rebound on Friday versus the Rays, but instead matched career highs by giving up seven runs and four homers in six innings of work. It was the first home runs Kuroda had allowed since June 30. "It was really strange, he just didnt have his stuff tonight," said Yankees manager Joe Girardi. The 38-year-old hurler is now 11-9 with a 2.71 ERA in 26 starts this year, three of those coming versus the Blue Jays. He is 2-0 with a 1.69 ERA in those outings and 4-1 lifetime in six matchups against Toronto with a 3.03 ERA. Kuroda would love to see Alfonso Soriano stay red hot. The 37-year-old slugger is hitting .275 with 11 home runs and 33 RBI in 30 games since being reacquired by the Yankees and he went deep twice in last nights 7-1 win. Sorianos second homer was the 400th of his career. The first 98 of those came with New York to begin his career from 1999-2003 before he was dealt to the Texas Rangers for Alex Rodriguez. "Hes been great for us. St. Louis Cardinals Jerseys. Hes the reason we have been scoring a lot more runs," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said of Soriano. "We get another big night out of him tonight. Hes been great." Rodriguez also homered last night, his second in as many games. The 38-year- old has four in 20 games this season and 651 in his career, nine back of Willie Mays for fourth on baseballs all-time list. Andy Pettitte was also solid over seven scoreless innings, though New York got a scare when Robinson Cano was hit in the left hand by a pitch in the first inning by Torontos J.A. Happ. He was replaced in the bottom of the inning by Eduardo Nunez and x-rays after the game were negative and Cano is day-to-day. Nunezs status is also up in the air after he tweaked his right knee later in the game and had to come out. Still, New York has won seven of 10 and 12 of its past 17 to sit 4 1/2 games out of the leagues second wild card spot. Moises Sierra collected three hits for Toronto, while Happ was charged with five runs over 4 2/3 innings. "I wasnt sharp enough. Its tough when you get behind against a team like that," Happ said. Toronto has lost eight of its last 10 games and is 2-13 versus New York this season. On Wednesday, the Blue Jays turn to Todd Redmond, who is 1-2 with a 4.44 ERA in 11 games (8 starts) this season. The righty has not won since July 7, posting six straight no-decisions before a 12-4 loss at Houston on Friday. Redmond gave up season highs of eight runs -- seven earned -- and eight hits, also walking three and striking out six over 3 1/3 innings. Redmond, 28, will face the Yankees for the first time.
