The Edmonton Oilers visit New Jersey to face the Devils this evening for their final contest before the Olympic hiatus. Tom Starke Soccer Jersey . The Oilers are coming into the contest following a 2-1 victory over the New York Rangers last night at Madison Square Garden. Ben Scrivens was excellent with 35 saves and Nail Yakupov netted the game-winner with 1:38 to go in regulation. Scrivens helped Edmonton move to 5-1-0 in its last six games, stoning Ryan Callahan on a short-handed breakaway just past the midway mark of the second before posting another 12 stops in the final frame. "I think that was our top game of the season," said Yakupov. "Not too many turnovers and our goalie played an awesome game." Ryan Smyth scored Edmontons first tally and the go-ahead goal came after Taylor Hall won a battle for the puck behind the New York net. He sent it out to Sam Gagner, whose centering pass from the left corner was rocketed by a charging Yakupov. "It was one of those games where we had to scratch and claw for everything we got," Hall remarked. "Sometimes those games are a lot more fun than the 8-2 wins or the wins where youre ahead off the bat." Scrivens improved to 3-3-0 with a 2.01 GAA and .948 save percentage since being acquired from the Los Angeles Kings, but Ilya Bryzgalov could still start tonights game for the Oilers. Bryzgalov is 5-5-0 with a 2.09 GAA, .919 save percentage and two shutouts in his career versus the Devils. Edmonton moved to 10-19-4 as the visiting team this season and wraps a four- game road trip tonight. The Oilers play their first five at home following the Olympic break. The Oilers posted a 5-4 shootout win over the visiting Devils back on Oct. 7, snapping a two-game series losing streak. They are 3-0-2 in the past five encounters overall, but have lost three of the last four in New Jersey. The Devils have allowed a game-tying goal in the final two minutes of their past three games, going 1-0-2 as each contest went to overtime. They recovered to beat the Dallas Stars 3-2 on Jan. 30, but lost a 3-2 decision in Nashville the following night before again getting burned in a 2-1 setback versus the Colorado Avalanche on Monday. Ryan Carter scored an early goal for New Jersey, but Colorado picked up a game-tying goal with 1:47 to go in regulation as P.A. Parenteau tipped home a Tyson Barrie shot from the point. New Jerseys Andy Greene then took a slashing penalty with 42 ticks left in regulation and the Avalanche cashed in 28 seconds into overtime on another deflection goal. "Tonight, the story is we have to find a way to get the second and third goal," noted Devils head coach Peter DeBoer. "We got one goal out of our fourth line and enough chances to get five. If you let anybody hang around in this league long enough, bad things will happen and thats the story lately." Cory Schneider made 23 saves in his fourth straight start as the Devils fell to 1-2-2 in their past five games. They sit five points back of Detroit for the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference. Schneider will get the start again tonight and ranks second in the NHL with a 1.91 goals against average. He is 4-2-0 lifetime versus the Oilers with a 1.98 GAA. Martin Brodeur is likely to start Saturdays contest in Washington before the start of the Olympic break for the Devils. Jan Kirchhoff Jersey . "It was one of the worst feelings Ive had in hockey for sure," the Edmonton Oil Kings defenceman said. Being forced to sit and watch the first three Canadian games of this years tournament has been almost as painful. David Alaba Jersey . After going 10-6 in 2012, the Vikings regressed this year, done in by a leaky defence and an ongoing inability to find stability at quarterback. Frazier finished 21-33-1 in three-plus seasons.INDIANAPOLIS - Peyton Manning still tugs on the heartstrings of Indianapolis football fans. Friends and former teammates are happy hes made it back to the NFLs biggest stage, and the general public is excited to see if No. 18 can win a second Super Bowl ring this weekend, too. Many in this town just wished this incredible season had come in Colts blue rather than Broncos orange. "I think as fans of Peyton, people hoped he would stay with the same team and finish it out," said Jeff Saturday, Mannings longtime centre. "But that wasnt possible. Peyton wanted to still play. The Colts released him and that happens in our business. As a player, you have to move on to the next team and hes done what hes supposed to do." Hes continued to win at a record-breaking rate. Many in Indy never doubted Manning would continue to play at this high level — if he could get healthy. But after missing the entire 2011 season to recover from a damaged nerve in his neck and facing a salary cap dilemma, Colts owner Jim Irsay made the toughest decision of his career — cutting ties with Manning and using the No. 1 draft pick to begin anew. Immediate reactions in Indy were mixed when Irsay tearfully tried to explain he wanted Manning to have another shot at the Super Bowl before his career ended, while the Colts were attempting to remain a Super Bowl contender for the next decade with a completely new cast. So far, so good. Since drafting Andrew Luck, the Colts have posted back-to-back 11-win seasons and reached the playoffs twice. Manning, meanwhile, has posted two straight 13-win seasons, just completed perhaps the greatest regular season by any quarterback in league history and will make his third Super Bowl start Sunday in New York. Indy fans arent surprised by Mannings success, especially after watching him turn this basketball bastion into a football-friendly town. "I think everyone is pulling for him," said Joe Gray, a 59-year-old Colts season ticket holder who was impresssed by the standing ovation Manning got when he returned to Lucas Oil Stadium in October. Ivan Lucic Jersey. "Im not saying I dont like Luck, I just wish Peyton was still here." Grey finds himself in a crowded group. Even longtime friends, such as Saturday and former linebacker Gary Brackett, acknowledge it was tough to see Manning leave, though theyre happy to see him playing well. Some Indy football fans say they cheer for Manning first and the Colts second, which may explain why so many orange No. 18 jerseys — or some variation of them — have been seen around town the last two years. Manning has remained close to the community, too, returning each of the last two springs to host fundraisers for the childrens hospital that bears his name. On Sunday, the Peyton Manning Childrens Hospital at St.Vincent is even planning a Super Bowl viewing party for patients and their families. "We are fortunate to partner with a selfless individual who has given his time and resources off the field for the betterment of children and our overall community," said Vince Caponi, executive chairman of the hospitals board. "Peyton has the highest respect for our health ministry, and values his time spent with its pediatric patients." But to those who know Manning best, this goes far deeper than rooting for an ex-teammate. "My career is over, so now I can sit back and cheer for the guys I respect and hes definitely on top of that list," said Brackett, who served as Indys defensive captain while Manning was the offensive captain. Saturday concurs. "Hes a friend, so Im always pulling for him that way. But to see a guy coming back from all the neck surgeries hes had, at 37, going to another team, going to a Super Bowl, its fun to watch," Saturday said. "Peyton Manning was everything youd want our of a franchise quarterback while he was in Indy. He won the way you wanted to win. It was exactly what you wanted out of a franchise quarterback."
