EDMONTON -- If it was Ales Hemskys last game as an Edmonton Oiler, he certainly went out on a high note. Persistently rumoured to be a likely candidate to be dealt during Wednesdays NHL trade deadline, Hemsky scored a pair of goals and was named the games first star as the Oilers snapped a three-game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night. Hemsky, who has spent all 11 seasons in the NHL with Edmonton, said he just tried to make sure he went out well, if his time with the club is indeed up at the deadline. "It is hard not to think about it when you are hearing all the rumours, but I have been in this situation for the last four years. I just tried to play my game and not think about it. It was fun. "It was definitely a nice game for me if it was my last one here, but it is still sad if it comes to an end. It is what it is. It is a business. Well see what happens." Oiler forward Jordan Eberle, who had the other goal in the win, said it was great to see the veteran forward have such a strong game during trying circumstances. "Its got to be tough for him," he said. "For the past four years since I have been here, his name has been on the list of guys on the trade block. That cant be easy, especially with so much social media now. For him to come out and give a performance like that at a time like this, it is awesome." "There is not much more that he could have done tonight," added Oilers head coach Dallas Eakins. "He was absolutely excellent. He was energetic and entertaining to watch. I found my eyes fixated on him a lot. I thought he was great from the initial drop of the puck. Taylor Hall had a pair of assists for the Oilers (21-34-8), who remain in second-last place in the NHL despite a 6-2-2 record in their last 10 games. Jason Spezza and Erik Karlsson responded for the Senators (27-24-11), who have lost three of their last four games in the midst of trying to move up into a playoff spot. "We started well and then we started trading chances with them and we really couldnt keep up," Karlsson said. "Their goalie obviously made some huge saves for them and we couldnt put it in the net obviously. I think we could have played a little bit smarter." Spezza is hopeful the loss didnt turn the Sens from buyers into sellers on deadline day. "Its a very disappointing loss," he said. "We missed a good opportunity to make up some points. We saw that Detroit loss and not being able to win this game is frustrating. "We got the first one and then we were a little bit flat through the first period. You have to give them credit too, they defended well. But I still think we needed to find a better way to stay in that game." Ottawa struck first with a goal just over five minutes into the opening period. Milan Michalek sent a backhand pass from behind the net through a few bodies in front to Spezza, who was able to beat Edmonton goalie Ben Scrivens with a quick shot for his 16th of the season. Edmonton tied the game up with five-and-a-half minutes left as Nail Yakupov hit Hemsky with a long pass on the power play. Hemsky flew into the Senators zone before cutting in on net and undressing Ottawa goalie Craig Anderson with a backhand deke. It was Hemskys first goal since Jan. 12. Edmonton had a great opportunity to take the lead seven minutes into the second period as Hall picked off a Colin Greening pass and went in alone, beating Anderson with a high shot but ringing the puck off the crossbar. Hemsky wasnt done yet. With 11 minutes left in the middle frame, Sam Gagner hit Hemsky with a drop pass and he picked the corner with a shot for his ninth of the season while Hall screened Anderson in front of the net. Scrivens kept it 2-1 with four minutes left in the second as he came across quickly to rob Bobby Ryan on an attempt to deflect a shot from in tight. Edmonton made it 3-1 four-and-a-half minutes into the third period as a Boyd Gordon shot deflected to Eberle at the side of the net and he had an easy tap-in for his 20th of the season. Right after Edmontons Nick Schultz fished a puck out of harms way from behind Scrivens, the Senators made it a one-goal game with just under three minutes left to play. Karlsson walked around a pair of defenders and slipped a shot under the Oiler goalies arm. Ottawa pulled Anderson late in the contest, but couldnt get the equalizer. The Senators play the third game of a four-game road trip in Calgary on Wednesday. The Oilers next play host to the New York Islanders on Thursday. Notes: Both teams were quite active on the day before Wednesdays NHL trade deadline. Edmonton made a couple of moves involving goalies as they shipped Ilya Bryzgalov to the Minnesota Wild for a fourth-round pick and then acquired goalie Viktor Fasth from the Anaheim Ducks for third- and fifth-round draft picks. As a result the Oilers had to make a call out to the University of Alberta Golden Bears to utilize their goalie, Sherwood Parks Kurtis Mucha, as a backup. There was a social media outcry before the game urging the Oilers to give the one-game back-up opportunity to Team Canadas womens Olympic two-time gold medallist Shannon Szabados ... The Senators also made a trade on Tuesday, sending left-winger Jeff Costello to Vancouver in exchange for defenceman Patrick Mullen ... Both teams also placed players on the waiver wire, as the Senators made forward Cory Conacher and defenceman Joe Corvo available and Edmonton waived defenceman Corey Potter ... It was the second and final meeting between the two teams, with Edmonton winning the first match-up 3-1 in Ottawa on Oct. 19 ... Oiler Nail Yakupov returned to the line-up after missing one game with a foot injury. Christian Fischer Jersey . Theres little time for rest, too. The Flyers and Rangers play again Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden. Simmonds scored in the first period and twice more in the second for his first career post-season hat trick. Mason survived a busy first period and stopping 31 straight shots until Carl Hagelin scored late in the third. Clayton Keller Jersey . Groves signed with Cleveland as an unrestricted free agent last year after a season with Arizona. He was in the linebacker rotation and had a sack in the season opener against Miami. http://www.hockeycoyotesproshop.com/customized/. The alleged sexual assault is believed to have happened over the weekend of Feb. 1, when the hockey team was in Thunder Bay for two games against Lakehead University. The criminal investigation branch of the Thunder Bay Police Service is leading the investigation with help from Ottawa police. Michael Stone Jersey . The stakes were higher, the competition more fierce and the atmosphere was that of a playoff game - something the young, upstart Raptors have five weeks to better prepare themselves for or the result will be eerily similar. Brad Richardson Jersey . - Leon Draisaitl scored a hat trick as the Prince Albert Raiders stormed past the Swift Current Broncos 5-2 in Western Hockey League action Tuesday.The Wayward TalentClassic example: Randy MossThis years candidate: Colt LyerlaThe Wayward Talent tantalizes and terrifies NFL scouts all at once. They salivate over what he can do on the field, but they have concerns over whats happened off the field. In the 1998 draft, teams were so terrified of Randy Moss criminal record that they would forgo drafting a 66" receiver who could run a sub 4.4 40-yard dash. Moss fell to the Vikings, and the rest his history. Tight end Colt Lyerla may not be quite as talented, but he possesses some very impressive measurable and is alarmingly athletic [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wOMDbl58wJ0]. At 64" and 242lbs, Lyerla ran a 4.61 40-yard dash—which is elite for a tight end that size. Prediction: 4th round. Unfortunately for Lyerla, his arrest for cocaine possession is going to affect his draft day stock. But his talent will likely make him an NFL fixture for quite some time as long as he cleans up his act. The Super-Skilled "Slacker" Classic example: Calvin JohnsonThis years candidate: Jadeveon ClowneyThe prospect with the surplus of skill typically has an off-the-charts 40-yard dash (in this case, 4.53), and sets a record of some sort (South Carolina University record for 13 sacks). In some cases, this potential draftee comes with supposed "work ethic issues" (perhaps lacking competition all your life inevitably leads to some slacking). Such is the case with Jadeveon Clowney. Despite his mind-blowing measurables, many prognosticators are calling for him to fall in the draft.Prediction: Goes 5th overall after a team close to the playoffs trades up to take him. His rumoured lack of work ethic will be mitiggated by the fact that hes a defensive end—a position that requires the exact combo of height, speed, and power that Clowney possesses.dddddddddddd. The System Quarterback Classic example: Tim CouchThis years candidate: AJ McCarrronIn college, the System Quarterback evolves into the product of a scheme put in place by the coaching staff. Legendary flameout Tim Couch couldnt hack it in the NFL because his one-read Air Raid offense at Kentucky didnt prepare him for the complicated offenses of the NFL. This year we have AJ McCarron, who won two national championships on the back of Nick Sabans iron-clad defense. Prediction: A 6th round selection, followed by a largely forgettable career as a backup QB. Every shot of McCarron toting a clipboard on the sideline will be accompanied by a shot of his fiancée Katherine Webb—followed of course by a breathless Brent Musberger. The Inspirational StoryClassic example: Michael OherThis years candidate: Marqise LeeThe Inspirational Story is based on an individuals unlikely path to NFL stardom. Like Michael Ohers story, as recounted in The Blind Side, Marqise Lee took the hard road to the NFL. Growing up, he spent time living on motel room floors, couches, and foster homes, narrowly avoiding gangs, and eventually begging his way into a prep school known for its athletics program.Now hes officially ready for the big time. Prediction: Late first round, to a playoff team like the New Orleans Saints, where Lee will take his inspirational story to the next level.
