didnt take his place
It certainly hasnt been a December to remember for the Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames. These provincial rivals have been the Western Conferences worst teams this month heading into Saturday nights matchup in Calgary in this seasons second Battle of Alberta. Edmonton (7-21-7) has produced a league-worst five points this month, with Calgary totaling two more to match Carolinas 3-7-1 record in December as second-worst. The Oilers are enduring an 0-6-2 slide that isnt even as bad as their 0-7-4 winless run Nov. 11-Dec. 3. They have one victory in their last 20 games, and the leagues worst team was eager for a three-day break between games over the holidays. This season, I couldnt imagine a worse start to a year than we have, winger Taylor Hall said. But it will be a new year and I think this break will do nothing but good for our team. Calgary (18-15-3) would be mired with the same number of December points as its rivals to the north if not for Mondays 4-3 overtime win at Los Angeles that ended a 0-7-1 slide. The Flames seemed headed for another listless defeat as they trailed by three goals before rallying as rookie Johnny Gaudreau scored twice in the final 2:12 of regulation before Mark Giordanos winning goal. Giordano increased his team-high point total to 34 to lead all NHL defensemen. Nothing impresses me anymore about Mark Giordano, coach Bob Hartley said. Its consistency, all the time, (he) always shows up. The coach said that the Flames are using Mondays effort as the start of a new season, with this contest beginning a six-game homestand. Were back in front of our fans against the Oilers, game two of our seven-game segment and thats how we prepare, Hartley said. Theres no sense dwelling on the losses. The Flames seek to avoid extending their home slide to four - their longest since losing seven in a row Dec. 27, 2013-Jan. 16, 2014. Being at home may not be good since the visiting team has taken the last eight meetings in this series. The Flames won 5-2 at Edmonton on Oct. 9 behind a hat trick from Mason Raymond, who has two goals in 16 games since. The Oilers visit Calgary twice in the next five days after another dismal performance in Tuesdays 5-1 defeat to similarly lowly Arizona. Ben Scrivens allowed two goals on three shots in the first 5 minutes before he was pulled for Viktor Fasth. We obviously took a step back tonight, interim coach Todd Nelson said. It wasnt the game that we wanted. I thought that our execution was pretty poor. Nelson is 0-2-2 since replacing the fired Dallas Eakins on Dec. 15. Edmonton owns the NHLs fifth-worst attack with 2.14 goals per game and the leagues worst defense, yielding an average of 3.40 goals. The Oilers are last in the league on the power play on the road at 5.3 percent, coming up empty in 21 straight chances. Edmonton enters on a 0-5-4 road slide - its worst since going 0-8-2 from March 2-April 3, 2010.

With their coach gone, they finally played offence the way he would have wanted.

Directly ahead was open field, the end zone and the Seattle Seahawks place in the NFC championship game.BALTIMORE -- The Orioles activated first baseman Chris Davis from the 15-day disabled list Sunday, a move that would have generated more enthusiasm in the Baltimore clubhouse if catcher Matt Wieters didnt take his place on the DL with a right elbow strain. After spending the minimum time on the disabled list with a strained muscle near his left ribcage, Davis was in the starting lineup for Sundays game against the Houston Astros. Wieters had an MRI on his elbow Monday and visited Dr. James Andrews, who prescribed he rest his arm. Wieters served as designated hitter this week, but the Orioles decided it would be a good idea to shut him down for a while. "I think to get the best opportunity for this to heal properly we need to let it quiet down completely," manager Buck Showalter said. "Youre getting treatment all day then its, Hold on a second to take some swings in the cage. I got to get ready for the game." Showalter added: "Originally, they felt the best case scenario was a two- or three-week period where he wasnt throwing. I think this gives us the best opportunity for this thing to manage itself." Wieters is batting .308 with five homers and 18 RBIs, but he has thrown out only one of 12 would-be base stealers. "Its not like some acute pain. Its just that he knows its not like it should be to catch at the major league levvel," Showalter said.dddddddddddd "A lot of catchers would die to be able to make the throws Matt has made so far this year." Davis led the majors last year with 53 home runs and 138 RBIs. This season he has two homers and 13 RBIs in 22 games. He went on the DL on April 27, retroactive to April 26, after being pulled from a game against Kansas City. His rehabilitation assignment lasted only one game -- a 1 for 4 outing Saturday night for Class A Bowie. "Hes doing some things now he wasnt able to do that three or four day period he was trying to play through it," Showalter said. "That was good to hear from him." Steve Pearce performed well at first base and at the plate, but Davis lobbied to return Sunday and got his wish. "Steve Pearce is no stranger to success," Davis said. "Hes been big for us the last couple of years and hes done a great job. But Im tired of seeing him hit home runs." Astros manager Bo Porter was hoping Davis might remain on the DL at least another day, through the end the three-game series that concluded Sunday. "I thought he was going to stay down in Bowie," Porter joked. "We might just walk him four times. No, hes a good player. But you make quality pitches you have a good chance of getting him out. Im sure theyre excited to have him back."
