After a disastrous homestand, the Edmonton Oilers are embarking on a three-game road trip that could present a perfect storm for a continued losing streak. Fake Jerseys For Sale . It begins tonight in Dallas, where the Oilers will try to overcome sustained struggles against the Stars while beating a Western Conference opponent for the first time this season. A five-game homestand extended Edmontons losing streak to 0-5-1, with Saturdays loss of the embarrassing variety, 7-1 to Chicago. The Oilers have matched their longest losing streak of last season and another defeat will give the team its worst slide since going 0-8-3 from March 8-31, 2011. Viktor Fasth will start in net for the Oilers. He has a 2-1-0 record with a 1.65 GAA in four games against Dallas. All three of Edmontons opponents on the trip are from the West, against which the Oilers are 0-10-1. It only gets more difficult after the Dallas matchup with stops in Nashville and St. Louis, but even the Stars (8-9-4) have dominated the Oilers (6-13-2) with 13 wins in 16 meetings. Edmonton hasnt given itself much of a chance with 23 goals in a 2-9-1 stretch. David Perron scored against the Blackhawks, but it was just his second in 21 games after scoring a career-high 28 a season ago. Fellow forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has gone four games without a point and has two in eight career games against Dallas. Weve got to find a way to not get too frustrated or else the negativity really seeps into your game, Nugent-Hopkins told the teams official website. It just makes things a lot worse and I know the past few years there have been instances where it has been like that. Weve shown a lot more promise this year than in the past couple of years, I know that for sure. Weve just got to find a way to get ourselves motivated and get back on track. The Stars were probably having similar thoughts after opening a five-game homestand with a third straight loss. Theyve since won two in a row, including Sundays 5-4 victory over Los Angeles. Theyll need more time to improve a 3-5-4 home record, and possibly have more success while playing with a lead after nearly blowing a 4-0 advantage. Dallas has allowed 17 goals in four games. Its hard to stand here and talk about how well we played for almost 40 minutes, Ruff told the teams official website. Weve got some guys that have to grab hold of moments in a game and be able to change it. Defenseman Jason Demers, acquired from San Jose on Friday, scored in his first game with the Stars, while Jamie Benn had two goals and an assist. Benn has three goals and three assists in three games. Kari Lehtonen faced 41 shots and allowed at least four goals for the third time in four games - a 2-1-0 stretch with a 4.17 goals-against average. Hes been considerably better against the Oilers with an 11-2-1 record and 1.92 GAA in 14 starts since joining the Stars. Ben Scrivens struggles have been far more sustained. Hes posted a 4.27 GAA in a 0-6-1 span and has allowed five goals in each of his past two games - he faced only 13 shots against the Blackhawks before being pulled in the second period - culminating in the firing of goaltender coach Frederic Chabot prior to the trip. Luke Gazdic is scheduled to make his season debut against his former organization.

The Australian was called up from triple-A Buffalo, enjoyed his six-month anniversary with wife Kristi, and gave his mother Debbie a long-distance present as she celebrated her birthday Down Under. Hendriks capped a day to remember with an impressive 5 2/3-inning performance in Torontos 3-2 win over Oakland at Rogers Centre. The 25-year-old right-hander allowed three hits and one earned run for his first major-league victory since last August. "Its kind of a big deal today for me," he said. Steve Tolleson staked Hendriks to an early lead with a two-run shot -- his first homer of the season -- in the second inning and the Blue Jays scratched out another run in the third. Hendriks allowed a solo homer to Brandon Moss in the fourth inning. He escaped a bases-loaded jam in the fifth and left to a standing ovation in the sixth inning. "That was incredible," he said. "I got tingles all over my body for that. This is such a good crowd up here. Its fantastic. They know their baseball up here." Hendriks, who spent parts of the last three seasons with the Twins, earned the callup with a sparkling 5-0 record and 1.48 earned-run average this season with the Bisons. He hopes to take full advantage of this second chance in the big leagues. "Its a huge thing for me," he said. "I was given opportunities in Minnesota and I didnt capitalize on them. Now Ive got a different mindset coming into the season of just getting ready, getting aggressive and getting after guys early. "I think its paid dividends so far and hopefully I can continue this trend and stay up here all year." Toronto manager John Gibbons was impressed. "I would definitely say hes earned another start," he said. The Blue Jays have won four straight games, nine of their last 11 and improved to 11-11 at home this season. Toronto (27-22) is five games over .500 for the first time in over two years. The Blue Jays also lead the American League East division. The last time they were alone in first place this deep into the season was way back on July 6, 2000. It was Tollesons first home run in a Toronto uniform and first in the majors since he went deep on June 10, 2012 with Philadelphia. Wholesale Jerseys For Sale. "We have a tremendous lineup, I mean Melky (Cabrera), Jose (Bautista), Eddie (Encarnacion), all of these guys have been swinging the bat really well," said Tolleson, who batted seventh. "When the bottom of the order can get on base and they can drive us in or produce some runs ourselves that just helps everybody." Scott Kazmir (5-2) shouldered the loss for American League West-leading Oakland (30-18). He allowed five hits and three earned runs over seven innings. However, it was the southpaws throwing error in the third inning that allowed the eventual winning run to score. With Kevin Pillar aboard after a double, Kazmir threw to second base on a pickoff attempt but no one was covering the bag. Pillar ran to third on the play and scored when Jose Reyes hit a slow grounder to the right side of the infield. "That turned out to be costly," Kazmir said. "I should have held on to it. It ended up being the difference-maker in the game." Jed Lowrie was playing shortstop and Nick Punto was at second base. "(Kazmir) thought that I was going to go to the base and I was just there to hold (Pillar) on just a little bit longer because he was extending his lead," Lowrie said. "I wanted to stay there. He looked back and thought I was going to break and I didnt have any plans to." The Athletics made it a one-run game in the eighth inning and threatened in the ninth. Coco Crisp hit a two-out double off Casey Janssen and stole third but the Toronto closer got Lowrie to ground out for his sixth save in six opportunities. Notes: Toronto knuckleballer R.A. Dickey (4-4) will get the start Saturday afternoon against Jesse Chavez (4-1). ... The Blue Jays will host Tampa Bay and Kansas City during the homestand next week. ...
