DALLAS -- The Dallas Stars gave new owner Tom Gaglardi the perfect welcoming gift. Toby Petersen, Steve Ott and Michael Ryder each scored goals and the Stars ended a five-game losing streak with a 4-1 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Monday night. Kari Lehtonen made 17 saves for the Stars, who had been outscored 21-4 during the five-game skid. Before the game, Gaglardi was introduced to the crowd and dropped the puck for the ceremonial faceoff. The Vancouver businessmans purchase of the team was approved by the NHL last week. "You spend a quarter of a billion dollars, it would be nice for you to get a win," Stars coach Glen Gulutzan said. "The guys were playing for themselves, obviously, but we talked with Tom this morning and he had a good message for our guys and you could tell in the pre-game skate that our guys were a little lighter on their feet and had a little more confidence. Its nice to get one for him when hes in the house. Its a nice way to start to own a franchise." Radek Dvorak wrapped up the win with a short-handed empty-netter with 1:24 left, Dvoraks first goal of the season. Rookie Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, who had five assists in the Oilers 9-2 win over Chicago on Saturday night, scored his eighth goal of the season for Edmonton. Nikolai Khabibulin stopped 31 shots for Edmonton, which is 1-5 in its past six games. The Stars grabbed early momentum with a physical approach and aggressive forecheck that kept the Oilers bottled up in their own zone. Dallas built a 14-7 shots edge in the first period. "We didnt handle it very well," Oilers coach Tom Renney said. "We have assets that can intimidate, too. They had us on our heels and we didnt respond real well the first part of the game. We didnt measure up when we needed to." Petersen got his first of the season from low in the left circle at 8:30 of the opening period. Edmonton had a chance to tie with about five minutes left in the first period, but Ales Hemskys shot rang off the crossbar. Ott made it 2-0 off Mike Ribeiros setup at 8:58 of the second period, Otts third of the season. Brenden Morrow also assisted for his 500th career point. Nugent-Hopkins connected from the slot to get Edmonton on the board at 15:24 of the second, but Ryder fired into the upper right corner of the net off a 4-on-1 break 50 seconds later for his seventh of the season to give Dallas a 3-1 advantage. Dallas penalty killers had a good night, denying Edmonton on all six power plays. Overall, Gaglardi had to be pleased with what he saw, although home attendance continues to lag for the Stars. Monday nights crowd was announced as 11,458. Still, the Stars earned their first home victory since Nov. 4. "Hopefully now that will get our confidence back up and remove some of the doubt that creeps into your minds during those kinds of slides," Petersen said. "Those slides are going to happen every season, but hopefully we got it out of the way early and that will be it and well just move forward and get back on the right track." It was the first game for Dallas defenceman Sheldon Souray against his former team. Souray had a falling out with Edmonton and was placed on unconditional waivers during the summer, despite having one season left on a US$27 million, five-year deal signed in 2007. He played 40 games last season for Hershey in the American Hockey League, but none for the Oilers. He signed with the Stars as a free agent on a one year deal worth $1.65-million.

LOUIS -- Adam Wainwright had a nice view from his seat in the dugout. Jason Pierre-Paul Youth Jersey . Price was hurt at the start of Wednesdays practice after facing just one shot as the team worked on their power play. He left the ice in discomfort and appeared to be favouring his leg. A Habs source told TSNs John Lu that Price suffered the injury in Sochi and not before the Olympics. . Louis Blues, having added Ryan Miller and Steve Ott from Buffalo, remain the No. Jayron Hosley Jersey . The Scotsman was dismissed only five days after being told by the club he would remain in charge for the "foreseeable future. Shane Vereen Womens Jersey . He earned a couple days off. Johnson had three hits, including his third homer in two days, and the Atlanta Braves beat the Chicago Cubs 10-7 on Sunday to keep pace with Washington at the top of the NL East.ATLANTA -- Top-seeded John Isner overpowered Dudi Sela on Sunday to successfully defend his Atlanta Open title, blowing serve after serve past the 1.75-meter Israeli player in a 6-3, 6-4 victory. Serving for the match, the 2.08-meter Isner fell behind 30-0 before Sela sent a backhand into the net, and then watched almost helplessly as the American ripped three straight aces for the win. Isner finished with 15 aces to Selas two. Ranked 12th, Isner has won two of his nine career titles in Atlanta, where he also lost to Mardy Fish in the 2010 and 2011 finals and to eventual champion Andy Roddick in the 2012 semifinals. In running his Atlanta record to 16-3, the former University off Georgia star had the crowd on his side on a hot afternoon under bright sun.dddddddddddd. Isner served beyond 225 kph on several occasions, while Sela was in the 185 kph range. Isner also crushed Selas second serves, which often travelled at around 130 mph, to win 61 per cent of Selas second serves. Sela was playing in just his second ATP final after losing to Roddick in Beijing in 2008. Isner earned $103,100, and Sela made $54,300. American Jack Sock and Canadian Vasek Pospisil won the doubles title. Sock and Pospisil, the Wimbledon doubles winners three weeks ago in their first tournament together, beat Americans Steve Johnson and Sam Querrey 6-3, 5-7, 10-5. cheap nfl jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys cheap nfl jerseys cheap nfl jerseys ' ' '
