The Edmonton Oilers will try again to win their first game of the season when they host the Tampa Bay Lightning in Mondays battle at Rexall Place. The Oilers are 0-4-1, matching the teams worst ever start to a season. The 1992-93 club set a club record with four losses and a tie to begin the season, and Edmonton can surpass that dubious mark if it loses again tonight. Its a disheartening start for an Oilers team that has missed the playoffs in eight straight seasons since making a surprise run to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2006. If Edmontons season-opening funk gets much worse it could cost head coach Dallas Eakins his job despite the fact Eakins was hired in the summer of 2013 and only is in the second season of a four-year deal. Edmonton is allowing 4.80 goals per game so far this season, but the club did put forth a better defensive effort in its latest setback, losing 2-0 on Friday against the visiting Vancouver Canucks. The Oilers had surrendered five goals or more in each game before the close setback versus the Canucks. Ben Scrivens allowed just one goal on 29 shots in the setback, but his team was shut out for the first time this season. We have to find a way to come out on top, Scrivens said. Despite us playing better, we have to push through and find a way. Mondays contest is the second tilt of a seven-game homestand for the Oilers, who wont play their next road game until visiting Philadelphia on Nov. 4. Edmonton was just 16-22-3 as the visiting team in 2013-14. Edmonton has fared well against the Lightning in recent years, winning its last three home games in this series and taking four of the past six encounters overall. Tampas last win at Rexall Place came in a 3-1 victory on March 7, 2007, when Lightning star Steven Stamkos was still in his first season of junior hockey. Stamkos fueled a Tampa Bay victory in the clubs most recent outing, posting two goals and an assist in Saturdays 4-2 win at Vancouver. The Canucks entered the game with a 3-0 record before the Bolts handed them their first loss of the season. The score was tied at 2-2 in the second period before Ryan Callahan scored the go-ahead goal with 3:12 remaining in the middle stanza. Alex Killorn also lit the lamp early in the third period to account for the final margin. This was huge, said Stamkos, who has five goals and seven points this season. In the third period, we kind of just shut it down and thats learning from the mistakes weve made in other games. Ondrej Palat added two helpers for Tampa Bay, which saw Ben Bishop make 30 saves. Although the victory pushed the Lightnings record to 3-1-1 this season, the club received bad news Saturday when top defenseman Victor Hedman left the game in the second period and did not return. Hedman, who is tied with Stamkos for the team lead in points with seven, suffered a hand injury and has returned to Tampa for further evaluation. According to Bolts head coach Jon Cooper, the Swedish blueliner is probably done for the rest of Tampas current road trip, which has four games left, including tonights tilt in Edmonton. Hedman reportedly could miss 4-to-6 weeks of action with the injury. Were going to test our depth, said Cooper. It just puts a little more pressure on the (defensive) core. With Hedman sidelined the Bolts recalled defenseman Luke Witkowski from the clubs AHL affiliate in Syracuse. Tampa also called up forward Jonathan Drouin and the highly-touted rookie could make his NHL debut tonight. Drouin, the third overall pick of the 2013 draft, had missed training camp with a fractured right thumb. Tampa will continue their trek tomorrow night in Calgary before completing the swing with weekend dates in Winnipeg and Minnesota. Bishop expects to start tonight and is 2-0 with a 1.45 goals against average in three career games against the Oilers. Scrivens is 2-1-0 with a 3.08 GAA in four lifetime appearances versus Tampa.

The 76ers also received a 2015 second-round draft pick in the deal.MILWAUKEE - With Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in the house, the Milwaukee Bucks played like NBA champions. They shot 57 per cent. They held an opponent under 100 points for the first time in 12 games. And they enjoyed a rare breather for most of the second half in a 114-88 victory Monday night over the Utah Jazz. "It all came together tonight and that was really good to see," coach Larry Drew said after the Bucks most lopsided win of the season. Ersan Ilyasova scored a season-high 31 points on 13-of-14 shooting to lead five Bucks in double digits. Zaza Pachulia added 14 points, six rebounds and five assists, and the NBAs worst team improved to 12-47. Enes Kanter had career-high 27 points to lead Utah, mired by a mistake-prone third quarter in which the Bucks regularly led by at least 20. "It doesnt matter how many points I scored because it was a loss in the end," Kanter said. Hard as it is to believe these days, Milwaukee was once a force in the NBA with Abdul-Jabbar, who was drafted No. 1 overall by the Bucks in 1969. Then named Lew Alcindor, the big man with the famed sky hook was joined by fellow future Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson on a team that won the NBA title in 1971. On Monday, Abdul-Jabbar was in town to promote a tourism ad for the state of Wisconsin that played off his acting role in the movie "Airplane." He watched a game that turned into a laugher in the second half. Everything went right for the Bucks. Pachulia hit a layup in transition for an 11-point lead before guard Nate Wolters got the break going again after a Utah miss with 11:07 left in the third quarter. After a Jazz miss, Wolters rushed the ball into the lane to draw defenders before pitching back to Pachulia for an open 15-footer. "Everything started defensively. We got stops. We got rebounds and fast breaks, then Nate did a good job with the penetration," Pachulia said. Later, Ilyasova found himself open from 22 feet for another jumper and an 85-60 lead with 3:08 left in the third quarter. There have been nights this season wheen the Bucks have struggled to get to 85 for a game.dddddddddddd But on Monday, Drews club pulled away after allowing an early 12-point lead to get erased in the second quarter. "It was really refreshing that our guys came out to start the third quarter with some energy and some juice," Drew said. "I thought the third quarter we were just really good. Ersan was just unbelievable." Ilyasova had 15 points in the third. Whether hitting wide-open shots from the perimeter or getting off-balance putbacks, he could rarely be stopped. In the fourth, precocious rookie Giannis Antetokounmpo entertained the crowd by converting a touch pass from O.J. Mayo into a dunk and a three-point play for a 108-79 lead with 6:07 left. It was a deflating outing for the Jazz, one night after they lost to the NBA-leading Pacers 94-91 in Indiana. Theyre 0-3 on the first three stops of their six-game road trip. "Its frustrating after the performance last night, the growth we showed last night. We just didnt get it back tonight," coach Tyrone Corbin said. Gordon Hayward provided some of Utahs limited highlights, finishing with 20 points. Kanter came off the bench to shoot 8 of 16 and 11 of 12 from the foul line, with 14 rebounds. Otherwise, the Jazz were overrun in Milwaukee. Milwaukee has won two of its last four, with both wins coming by at least 20 points. Still, even with Abdul-Jabbar in town for a publicized appearance, the rebuilding Bucks drew a season-low 10,222 fans. NOTES: Count Corbin as captain of the campaign to get Utah point guard Trey Burke in the conversation for the Rookie of the Year award. "Oh absolutely, absolutely. You look at his growth all year. ... You look at how this team has grown because of his play, should be factored in also," Corbin said. Burke is averaging 12.6 points and 5.4 assists. He finished with seven points and five assists in 30 minutes Monday. ... Bucks F Jeff Adrien, acquired at the trade deadline from Charlotte, has at least 10 rebounds in four of five games with his new team. ' ' '
