    EDMONTON, Alberta -- The Edmonton Oilers host the Anaheim Ducks Saturday. Cheap Stitched Nuggets Jerseys . Theyll also host the Minnesota Wild on Sunday.Host is the key word here. The Oilers are playing their first season at the new Rogers Place, but its been anything but home sweet home. At 8-4-2, Edmonton has the best road record in the NHL, but has won just one of its last six home games.Maybe the Oilers can find a way to paint a Ducks logo at center ice before Saturdays puck drop and ask to wear their road white jerseys at home.I dont have an explanation for that, Oilers coach Todd McLellan said about the huge drop-off between his teams road and home performances. Our road record is better than our home record. No explanation for it. Its something that were looking to work on and improve. There is no rhyme or reason for it. Theres nothing we can find statistically or in the play that we can put our fingers on.Thats not entirely true. There is a statistical anomaly. The Oilers power play, despite the presence of NHL leading scorer Connor McDavid (34 points in 25 games), only has a 10.5 percent success rate at home, third worst in the league. Its at 26.8 percent on the road, third best in the league.On Thursday in Winnipeg, Edmonton got three man-advantage goals, including two from center Mark Letestu, who was promoted from the fourth line to the power play.I had success last year doing it here, did it in Pittsburgh, played with good players before, said Letestu. And I know I am out there for a reason and not just defer to guys who might be more skilled than myself.As for McDavid, who is now building a cushion atop the NHL scoring race, McLellan has run out of superlatives.Hes a tremendous player, said the Oilers coach. I dont know what to say about him anymore. You guys ask me every day and Im kind of running out of comments. You just have to watch him play.The Ducks (12-8-4) arrive in the Alberta capital on a three-game winning streak, despite scoring just eight times over those games. Theyve only given up four goals during the streak -- and they know that to be successful, they cant be one of the more exciting teams in the NHL to watch.Thats what were trying to sell, that were not really an offensive juggernaut by any means, said Anaheim coach Randy Carlyle. Were just trying to buckle down and have our group win games 2-1, 1-0, thats going to be enough to win. If we can do that over the course of the next 55-60 games, then hopefully going into the playoffs and, being a playoff team, we dont have to change our style much.Were getting better at playing as a group night in and night out, said Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf, who has just two goals but 17 assists in 21 games played this season. Our guys are doing a great job surrounding our net and not giving a whole lot up.The Ducks defeated the Oilers 4-1 in Anaheim on Nov. 15. It was one of the few blemishes on the Oilers road ledger. Wholesale Nuggets Jerseys . P.A. Parenteau scored early in the third period to help the Avs edge Toronto 2-1 on Tuesday night.

The Cardinals are 1 1/2 games ahead of Miami for the second wild-card spot in the National League.We had a hard time getting anything going against their starter, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said.

The Cardinals tied the mark with a pair of homers Friday night.Hellickson (10-7) skipped his last start because of back tightness. The right-hander looked healthy and sharp, allowing two runs on seven hits with eight strikeouts and one walk.

I was just getting ahead and kept the fastball down for the most part.Franco put the Phillies ahead for good with a two-out single to left in the fifth that scored Hernandez from third.Jeanmar Gomez pitched a scoreless ninth for his 33rd save in 37 opportunities.The Phillies jumped on rookie Luke Weaver (0-1) with a pair of runs in the first.Hernandez led off by driving an 0-1 pitch into the seats in right field for his fourth homer of the season.

Its not about making the perfect pitch, just making a quality one.RARE WINThe Phillies won for just the third time in their last 12 games against St. Louis.FAN HITA young fan sitting about 20 rows behind the Cardinals dugout was struck by a foul ball off the bat of Freddy Galvis in the eighth inning.
