DENVER -- Connor McDavid tried to sneak one in off Semyon Varlamov in the second period, but the Colorado goalie was too quick. Nick Easton Jersey .The budding Edmonton star got the better of Varlamov early in the third and sent the Oilers to another win.McDavid extended his scoring spree with a goal and two assists in the final period, Milan Lucic had four points and the Oilers beat the Avalanche 6-3 on Wednesday night.The NHLs leading scorer, McDavid has four goals and four assists in Edmontons three-game winning streak.The teams playing well, thats all that matters, said the 19-year-old McDavid, who has 27 points. When the team plays well everyone can generate off that and I think a lot of guys have done a great job of contributing. Its been a team effort over these last three games.The Oilers, who had not won this season when trailing after two periods, were behind 3-2 entering the third but scored three times in the first 7:25. Lucic tied it 32 seconds in when he knocked in McDavids shot on Varlamov.McDavid gave Edmonton a 4-3 lead when his shot from the backboards went off Varlamov and in at 6:35. The second-year center then assisted on Leon Draisaitls goal 55 seconds later.I tried to do that in the second period but it took a little too long for it to develop and he did a good job of getting back, McDavid said, referring to his goal. This time it was kind of a bang-bang play, just tried to put it there and hopefully go off something.Draisaitl also had an assist, Jordan Eberle netted two goals and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored for Edmonton. Lucic finished with a season-high three assists, and Cam Talbot made 25 saves.We talked about taking the puck to the net more and when we started doing that good things started to happen, Lucic said. Its a big step for us to take to be able to come back from behind and get a big win on this road trip.The Avalanche took eight penalties and gave up two power-play goals.Were taking too many, coach Jared Bednar said. The worst penalty kills are the teams that take the most penalties, and thats where were at. Youre trying to ask a team to kill five, six, seven penalties a game. Its not going to happen. No team does that.After Nathan MacKinnon and Nugent-Hopkins traded goals 2:55 apart in the first period, the Avalanche took a 2-1 lead when Rene Bourque scored the first of his two goals on a delayed penalty at 17:19.Eberles power-play goal at 19:49 tied it 2-all. It was his sixth of the season.Bourques second goal of the night came 2 seconds after Andrej Sekeras boarding minor expired and gave Colorado a 3-2 lead.Varlamov made 35 saves for Colorado.Game notes Eberle has 24 points in 27 career games against Colorado. ... Avalanche LW Gabriel Landeskog turned 24 and missed his fourth straight game with a lower-body injury. He skated in the morning and is scheduled to do so again Thursday. The Avalanche hope to have him back Saturday against Vancouver. ... Colorado forward Jarome Iginla took two minor penalties and surpassed 1,000 penalty minutes for his career. He is the ninth player in NHL history to have 600 goals and 1,000 penalty minutes.UP NEXTOilers: Play at Arizona on Friday night.Avalanche: Host Vancouver on Saturday night. Adrian Peterson Jersey . LOUIS -- Theres no telling how these wacky World Series games will end. Ben Gedeon Jersey . Note: The Calgary Flames announced Tuesday that Sean Monahan would not be made available to Canadas World Junior team. http:///...l-joseph-jersey.html . The Croatian served 21 aces and hit 42 winners against Sijsling, who double-faulted to give Cilic a 4-3 lead in the deciding set. "All the players, they know me and they were really happy to see me and they were really happy that this is over for me," Cilic said. GREENVILLE, N.C. -- The wins keep coming for East Carolina against Atlantic Coast Conference teams, only now with a new coach passionately pushing the Pirates from the sideline.Anthony Scott scored the go-ahead touchdown with 5:49 left to help ECU beat North Carolina State 33-30 on Saturday for the programs sixth straight win against ACC opponents.The Pirates (2-0), an American Athletic Conference member, have now beaten N.C. State (1-1), North Carolina and Virginia Tech twice each dating to the 2013 season.People want to talk down or look down on us like were a scrub team, receiver Zay Jones said. And thats fine. But when youve got to come out here and play football, thats the only thing that matters.You can talk all you want. Youve got to talk with your pads. Thats what we did today.The Pirates missed two shots at a field goal, had two turnovers and even had Scott drop a sure TD when he got behind the Wolfpacks defense. But on a hot day backed by a rowdy home crowd, they did enough after blowing a 12-0 lead and falling behind 30-26 early in the fourth.They were as physical as advertised, East Carolina coach Scottie Montgomery said. A lot of times we couldnt get them on the ground, sometimes we couldnt block them. But what we did do today, we played together.Scott scored twice for ECU along with James Summers, whose second TD was a 15-yarder that saw him running through hits and dragging tacklers into the end zone.N.C. State got a final chance from its own 38-yard line with 51 seconds left and no timeouts. After crossing midfield, Ryan Finleys 22-yard pass over the middle to BraLon Cherry killed the final seconds. ECU players spilled onto the field to celebrate while Montgomery crossed his arms into a crossbones-style celebration toward the Pirates crowd.Matt Dayes ran for 103 yards for the Wolfpack, while Finley, Jaylen Samuels and Reggie Gallaspy II each ran for touchdowns.I told our team that we had our chances, that we were not opportunistic at key moments, Wolfpack coach Dave Doeren said.THE TAKEAWAYN.C. STATE: While N.C. States nnew offense racked up 497 yards, its defense struggled to keep up in its first true test. Tramaine Brock Jersey. That doesnt bode well with a schedule that only gets tougher with No. 2 Clemson, No. 3 Florida State, No. 13 Louisville, No. 18 Notre Dame and No. 25 Miami still to come.I told them, `Weve got 10 games left and we can decide what we want to do with them right now, Doeren said. Im not pointing fingers at them. I said, `I lost the game, you lost the game, we lost the game. We need to get back to work and go win one together.EAST CAROLINA: Montgomerys first big win is sure to charge up the Pirates fans and give the program a jolt of confidence in the midst of a tough nonconference slate. Not to mention some stuck-it-to-the-big-boys bounce in the step.MISTAKES ABOUNDN.C. States list of miscues included a 2-point conversion play that went nowhere, a stuffed fake field goal, two missed kicks, even a 15-yard sideline interference penalty on a drive that ended with Scotts 25-yard TD catch.We have to be a more mature team and at the moment of truth, we have to do all the things right to become a better team, Doeren said.AGGRESSIVE PLAYCALLINGThe Pirates converted all three fourth-down opportunities in the first half, including a fourth-and-1 from their own 34.My heart was probably racing a little too much in the first half, Montgomery said. You go for it on fourth down three times in one half, you just want to make sure you give your kids the best opportunity to win.UP NEXTN.C. STATE: The Wolfpack continues the nonconference schedule with a home game against Old Dominion. N.C. State has won the only two meetings, 46-34 at home in 2014 and 38-14 on the road last year.EAST CAROLINA: The Pirates travel to South Carolina, the second of three straight against power-conference opponents.---Follow Aaron Beard on Twitter at and the APs college football site at http://collegefootball.ap.or g Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys Canada Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '
