EDMONTON - The Edmonton Oilers returned to practice Tuesday minus the 300-pound gorilla on their backs. Carmelo Anthony Jersey .The Oilers won their first game of the season Monday, ending a spectacular face-plant out of the starting gate that had left a fragile fan base teetering on the abyss of despairing deja vu.For the group, (the win) was more of, OK, everything that weve put in place here will work and it can work and theres no need to change anything, Oilers head coach Dallas Eakins told reporters after the optional skate at Rexall Place.That was the one thing we were really hammering home as a (coaching) staff.Were comfortable with our systems, the way were teaching it, the progress that were making it, and were not going to change it.Its going to work.The Oilers, galvanized by a electrifying penalty-shot goal by winger Taylor Hall, defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-2 Monday for the first win.The victory vaulted the Oilers out of the league cellar past the Buffalo Sabres, Carolina Hurricanes, and Winnipeg Jets into a tie with the Colorado Avalanche for 26th spot.The Oilers opened the season with a 5-2 loss to the Calgary Flames, followed by a shootout loss to the Vancouver Canucks and punishing beatdowns at the hands of the Los Angeles Kings and the Arizona Coyotes.Hall said things began to turn around in last Fridays 2-0 loss to the Canucks.We tried to eliminate those Grade A (opposition scoring) chances from our game, and it seemed like in Vancouver that happened, he said.Eakins agreed. He said the Oilers needed to improve their defensive play but were undone in the early going by some bad bounces.Weve had some pucks go right through us, where weve been in good positions — dieu, skates — (but) somehow it got through, he said.Weve continued to try to look after that red zone as much as you can, and were (now) finding a way to get our dieus and our feet in a way of those pucks.Eakins has also been matching his top line of Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle against the other teams best trio.Against Tampa Bay he matched them against Steve Stamkoss line and came out on top.I thought (Nugent-Hopkins) was by far the best player on the ice and was driving the game, said Eakins.Nugent-Hopkins line has also been matched up against the Sedin twins in Vancouver.Bring it on, said Hall.Its fun to go up against the guys. And we took it as a challenge last night to go up against a player like Stamkos, said Hall.The best way to play against those (top lines) is to play in their end, and make them play defence, and go at them that way.Eakins said the top line may be matched up against Alexander Ovechkin when the Oilers host the Washington Capitals Wednesday.But while the dark clouds have receded, the Oilers know theyre still in a storm.Offensive leaders from last year like Eberle and David Perron have yet to score this year.Goaltender Ben Scrivens has been erratic and the Oilers are still prone to getting caught running around in their own end of the ice.They need success now as they enter the mid-point of a seven-game homestand before heading east on a five-game trip in early November.The Oilers are also dealing with a fan base that, after eight consecutive seasons of empty promises and no playoffs, has gone from twitchy to downright jumpy.As the early losses piled up, fans took to social media to carve the team: too many youngsters, not enough focus in training camp, fire the coach. Eakins was ridiculed as some kind of eggheaded Mr. Peabody looking to X and O his way out of a game that is often no more complicated than who wants the puck more.Perron said theyre not out of the woods.We cant get ahead of ourselves, he said.Weve done a lot of nice things so far that people are talking about, but its only one win out of six games. Gary Harris Jersey . On Thursday, they signed former Browns linebacker DQwell Jackson. Terms of the deal were not immediately available. Custom Denver Nuggets Jerseys . Globo TV and other news outlets said early Monday that Scolari will not remain as coach after the national teams failure to win the World Cup at home. http://www.authenticnuggetsproshop.com/Emmanuel-Mudiay-Jersey/ .cas NHL Play of the Year showdown continues today with a man whos spent most of his career on highlight reels and a goalie actually "reaching back" for a save.RENTON, Wash. -- Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Monday that left tackle Russell Okung is unlikely to play on Sunday against Jacksonville after suffering a toe injury against San Francisco. Carroll would not give specifics on the severity of Okungs injury, saying the team is still awaiting more information before coming to a determination on how long theyll be without their Pro Bowl lineman. "I know there is some stuff that happened there and were waiting to figure it all out," Carroll said. "I think its best just to hold there. If I told you something Id be making it up." The most Carroll would reveal about Okungs status was the likelihood that he would be unavailable to play against the Jaguars. "I dont think thats possible," Carroll said. "Well see what happens. I dont think he can make that." Okung was injured on the final play of the first quarter on Sunday night, following a 60-minute weather delay. Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson fell forward in a pile for a 2-yard gain on a third-and-2 run. Okung walked off the field with a limp and was taken by a cart for further tests at the stadium. He returned to the sideline and went through some footwork drills, but ultimately spent the rest of the night on the sideline as a spectattor. Paul Millsap Jersey. Short of Wilson or safety Earl Thomas, no Seattle player may be more important than Okung. Hes struggled with ankle injuries early in his career and missed the end of the 2011 season with a torn pectoral muscle. But he started the final 14 regular season games last season and both playoff matchups, serving as an important blindside protector for Wilson. Seattle tried to fill Okungs absence on Sunday by sliding guard Paul McQuistan to left tackle and inserting James Carpenter at guard. McQuistan was serviceable but struggled trying to slow down San Francisco pass rusher Aldon Smith, who finished with two sacks and three quarterback hits. Carroll said it was too early to determine how they would proceed should Okung miss more than just this week. "Were still taking in information to know what its all about. We dont know all the details yet," he said. Carroll also said that backup running back Spencer Ware suffered a sprained ankle late in the win, but that was the only other significant injury. Defensive end Chris Clemons is expected to practice again this week as he continues to recover from off-season knee surgery. Carroll said if Clemons didnt make it back this week he expects hell be able to make his debut against Houston on Sept. 29.
