CHICAGO — If the Edmonton Oilers were looking to carry any sort of momentum into a quick turnaround http://www.officialbluejackets.com/authentic-adidas-david-savard-jersey , finding a way to notch back-to-back victories while keeping up its recent surge in scoring was certainly way to do it.Fresh off a 5-3 victory over the Nashville Predators on Saturday night, the Oilers will look to extend their winning streak to three games when they face the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday at the United Center.The Oilers have scored nine goals in their past two games and have at least four goals in each of their past three.Article continues below ...On Saturday, Edmonton got two goals each from Leon Draisaiti and Drake Caggiula to push their season mark to 5-3-1.“It was a really strong effort,” Draisaiti told reporters after the victory, according to the Oilers’ official team website. “We played for 60 minutes.”The complete-game effort only adds to the self-assurance Edmonton has played with during the last three games, which has produced a wealth of scoring after the Oilers were shut out last weekend against the Predators. And considering the way Edmonton has produced of late, Cagguila has noticed a marked difference in how his teammates have responded heading into Sunday’s game in Chicago.“We’ve got a confident group,” Cagguila told reporters Saturday, according to the team website. “As the season’s gone on, you could see every game we’ve gotten better and better. We’re a very confident group right now.”Oilers coach Todd McLellan credited his team’s strong start on Saturday, which led to the Oilers reaching the five-goal plateau for the second time in three games.Despite having to quickly turn around and face the Blackhawks, McLellan — like Cagguila — has seen a different on-ice product of late from his team.“We’re at a point now where the guys are believing in themselves,” McLellan told reporters on Saturday. “And when you do that and you start to win, you believe in it a little more. It’s a powerful thing.”While the Oilers have found a way to string a couple of victories together, the Blackhawks will attempt to quickly rebound from a forgettable performance on Saturday against St. Louis.Despite getting two goals from Patrick Kane Anthony Mantha Jersey , who pushed his season total to 11, Chicago allowed three third-period goals in a 7-3 loss to the Blues.“The game was there to be had,” Chicago’s Duncan Keith said after the loss, according to the Chicago Tribune. “But unfortunately, we weren’t good enough.”The Blackhawks saw their two-game winning streak snapped and, despite Kane’s continued strong play, watched St. Louis break open a game that Chicago had a chance to extend its winning ways in quickly left the Blackhawks looking to rebound against the suddenly surging Oilers.But like the Oilers, Chicago won’t have much time to process its most recent performance. “It seemed like (the Blues) were playing with maybe a little bit more intensity than we were,” Kane told reporters, according to NHL.com. “We knew that was going to happen, especially with the media attention about their team and what happened last game. We just didn’t come out and match it.” ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Some comebacks are routine, others a tad more daunting. The latter applies to Ryan Kesler.Kesler, sidelined almost half of last season and the first couple of games this year after hip surgery, hinted at returning to form Wednesday night Darren Helm Jersey , scoring twice in the Anaheim Ducks‘ 4-1 victory over the New York Islanders.Kesler scored the Ducks’ first two goals, providing an early cushion the Islanders could never overcome. New York did not score until there were 34.8 seconds left.“He kick started our offense,” Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said.The Ducks improved to 5-1-1 on the season, while the Islanders fell to 2-3.John Gibson turned away 34 of 35 shots for Anaheim, while Thomas Greiss stopped 21 of 24 shots for New York.Kesler opened the scoring at the end of the first period, cashing in on a power play when he backhanded in a rebound with 4.4 seconds left.New York thought it had tied the game at 1-1 in the second period when Cal Clutterbuck poked the puck into the net after it appeared under the glove and in control of Gibson. The Ducks challenged the goal, it was ruled goalie interference and erased.Minutes later, Kesler added his second goal of the game, a wrist shot from just outside the blue line for his third goal of the season. The puck bounced out of the net and Kesler fired that in, too.“I had to make sure,” Kesler said.That game had taken a huge turn.“That’s a big momentum swing,” said New York’s Mathew Barzal.” Two to nothing, now. That happens. Just can’t control it, got to get back on the horse quickly and I thought, again we had some chances“Sometimes you run into a hot goalie and tonight (Gibson) played great.”The Ducks took their commanding 3-0 lead less than a minute into the third period. Max Comtois fired a short shot just inside the backline that deflected off Greiss and popped up a few feet in front of the goal just as Adam Henrique skated by. He batted it in for his third goal of the season.“We still kept doing the same thing and got a lot of good chances http://www.officialredwings.com/authentic-adidas-dylan-larkin-jersey , but we got to put the puck in the net,” New York’s Johnny Boychuk said. “That’s all.”Kesler said he’s still not where he wants to be, but is pleased with his start.“I have a lot to improve on,” he said. “It’s a long year, but a good start.”He admitted, though, some satisfaction in proving those wrong who doubted he would have really make it back from his hip surgery.“I love it,” Kesler said. “It’s my favorite thing in the world.”NOTES: The Ducks signed left wing Nick Ritchie, 22, to a three-year contract prior to the game.
