(SportsNetwork.com) - The Dallas Stars look to win a season-high fourth consecutive game on Sunday evening as they visit the reeling Edmonton Oilers. The Stars took two of three at home before embarking on a three-game swing, capping the homestand with a victory over New Jersey prior to road wins over Vancouver and Calgary. That gave Dallas its first three-game win streak since Nov. 20-25, a run that included a win over Edmonton. Kari Lehtonen has reached excellent form on this road trip, posting a 27-save shutout to beat the Canucks before turning aside 21 of the 22 shots he faced in Fridays 2-1 win over the Calgary Flames. Lehtonen has won four of his past five starts, giving up a goal or fewer in three of those games. I felt good, and the guys played very well in front of me, Lehtonen told his teams website after the win over the Flames. The first period maybe wasnt our best, but after that it was really solid. We didnt give them too much. Jamie Benn and Trevor Daley scored second-period goals on Friday, with Cody Eakin assisting on each tally. Tyler Seguin added an assist for his 39th point of the campaign, tied for second most in the NHL. Seguin also tops the league with 23 goals. Defenseman Jordie Benn missed the game with flu-like symptoms, while forward Ryan Garbutt is eligible to return tonight from a three-game suspension he received for slew-footing Winnipegs Dustin Byfuglien in a loss on Dec. 9. Lehtonen, meanwhile, may have earned another start tonight and is 12-3-1 lifetime versus the Oilers with a 2.05 goals against average and .932 save percentage. The Stars netminder made 35 saves in a 3-2 home win over the Oilers on Nov. 25, the first of three meetings between the clubs this season. Seguin scored twice in Dallas 14th victory in its past 17 versus Edmonton. The Stars also have won five in a row in Edmonton. Boyd Gordon and Taylor Hall scored in defeat, while Viktor Fasth made 30 saves in the loss. Fasth is 2-2-0 with a 1.94 GAA and .926 save percentage in five career meetings versus Dallas, including four starts, with a shutout. Fellow Oilers goaltender Ben Scrivens allowed three goals on 32 shots in a loss the only time he faced the Stars. Scrivens came up with 26 saves in a 4-3 loss to San Jose on Thursday, with the Sharks going ahead in the third period thanks to a pair of goals only 34 seconds apart. Weve struggled to win games all season and tonight is a prime example of that, said Gordon, who returned after missing five in a row with a back injury. We have to find a way to hold on. Gordon, Steven Pinizzotto and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored for the Oilers, who have lost six straight and 17 of their last 18. Sunday will make Edmontons third game since firing Dallas Eakins as head coach and replacing him on an interim basis with Todd Nelson. Patrick Murray Jersey

. -- John Fox will coach the Denver Broncos from the sideline and not the booth upon his return Sunday five weeks after heart surgery.WINNIPEG -- Even ugly wins are good, said Winnipeg Blue Bombers coach Mike OShea after his team overcame struggles to beat the Ottawa Redblacks 36-28 in the expansion teams CFL debut on the road. "If you can win ugly, win ugly, it dont matter, its a win," said OShea as the Bombers improved their record to 2-0 to start the season, just one win less than the team managed in all of 2013. "The guys in the locker-room are just feeling it. A win like that just gets them tighter and tighter together and gets us closer to where we need to be. Theres still lots of work to do . . . but they get that." Outside the other dressing room at Investors Group Field, another rookie head coach had less to be happy about. "Were incredibly disappointed to lose," said Rick Campbell. "That was one that was there for the taking. Its a hard league to win in. Youve got to make sure you make enough plays to win the game and they made one more than we did." Veteran quarterback Henry Burris said they failed at many levels. "We were way too inconsistent when it counted," said Burris. "This is a team loss because in every aspect we could have done better." With three first-quarter touchdowns, two from running back Chevon Walker and another from slotback Dobson Collins, Burris and the Redblacks jumped into an early lead. But after that, the Bomber defence pretty well shut them down for most of the game and Winnipegs special teams helped to even things up. Ottawa had two field goals and a single in the last three quarters of football as the Bombers edged closer. Demond Washingtons 96-yard kick return for a third-quarter touchdown was huge for the Bombers, and running back Nic Grigsby had three touchdowns, including the game winner in the fourth quarter. "It was awesome getting that feeling back, being able to be the spark plug for the game and help the team finish with a big win," said Grigsby, who has been out of football for a while after a stint at the B.C. Lions camp in 2012. An injury to Will Ford saw him get the starters spot although his performance in camp also made it a tough decision. Lirim Hajrullahu had three field goals for the Bombers. Quarterback Drew Willy smacked his throwing hand, perhaps on a helmet, but says he will be ready to play in Montreal and at no point did he think of leaving the game. "The third quarter it definitely bothered me but the guys did a good job telling me to keep fighting through it, fighting through the pain," he said. "Obviously our croowd wad behind us and thats tough on any away quarterback.dddddddddddd" The game marked the return of Ottawa to the league it left in 2006 due to money troubles. That, plus Winnipegs win in its season opener, put a few more fans in the seats with a count of 27,553. And they were deafening when the Redblacks had the ball. CFL commissioner Mark Cohon was on hand for the historic occasion. "I think we have a great franchise in the Ottawa Redblacks," said Cohon, who started working to bring Ottawa back into the league shortly after he became commissioner in 2007. "When we did that deal, to where they are today, its a much stronger league and theyre very happy to be part of something that is growing. And I think theyre one of the big reasons why theres a lot of excitement this year around the league." Unlike last week, when Winnipeg opened its season against the Toronto Argonauts, there was no early Bomber scoring drive. Willy went two and out. Instead, Burris took advantage of midfield position on his first possession to set up Ottawas first touchdown on a four-yard run by Walker to make it 7-0. He followed it about two minutes later with a 58-second drive and 26-yard pass to Collins and the Redblacks took a 14-0 lead. Up to that point, the Bomber offence hadnt managed to get out of their half of the field. Willy finally connected with Nick Moore for 51 yards to get in scoring range on a six-play 73-yard drive with about four minutes left in the first. Grigsby carried it the last yard to get the Bombers on the board. But Ottawa wasnt finished and Walker caught an eight-yard pass to make it 21-7 before the quarter ended. The Redblacks stalled in the second with penalties and finished the game with 16 to Winnipegs 12, although both lost 120 yards as a result and OShea said thats an area he wants to see fixed. Winnipeg narrowed the gap with Grigsbys four-yard run for his second touchdown of the night. Hajrullahus 47-yard field goal as the half ended made it 21-17 and he hit with a 16-yarder just over four minutes into the second half to bring the Bombers within one. The Redblacks crept ahead on Mahers single and widened it a little more to 25-20 with his 44-yard field goal just before the third quarter ended. He hit at 19 as well in the fourth to make it 28-20. Washingtons return touchdown again brought the Bombers within two as Willy missed the two-point conversion, but it was left to Grigsby to deliver the final blow and Hajrullahus 37-yard field goal with about 30 seconds sealed the victory.
