ssure and used a 10-2 run to go up 53-45 with 3 min

DETROIT -- Connor McDavid didnt need a shot on goal Sunday night to deliver for the Pacific Division-leading Edmonton Oilers. Tahir Whitehead Jersey .McDavid perfectly set up Ryan Nugent-Hopkins for a go-ahead goal late in the second period, giving Edmonton a 2-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings.On a night where the team was more important than the individual and Connor was a little bit quiet, he still found a way to have an impact on maybe the most important play of the game, Oilers coach Todd McLellan said. A lot of guys wouldve shot that puck. He had enough patience to find Nugent for a wide-open goal.McDavid made the goal happen, starting with a faceoff he won in the left circle. After the draw, the 19-year-old center skated toward the net before subtly finding a spot on the bottom of the right circle. McDavid got the puck back, drew three Detroit players, and threaded a pass between two of them to Nugent-Hopkins on the inside of the left circle, where he shot into an empty net.If that pass gets picked off or knocked down, were having a different debate on why I didnt shoot it, McDavid said. I saw a play. Lucky it worked out.McDavid has five goals and nine assists in 13 games in his second NHL season, and his skill seems a bigger factor than good fortune.He made a great play, said Detroits Justin Abdelkader, who scored his teams only goal. He froze everyone.Edmontons Tyler Pitlick scored a tying goal late in the first period on a wraparound and Jonas Gustavsson made 22 saves, helping hold off his former teammates with a one-goal lead in the final period.We played real well, especially in the third, Gustavsson said. We didnt open up, kept it real simple and didnt give them a lot of chances to tie it up. We played a real mature period.The Oilers have won two straight, playing their first set of back-to-back games this season, after losing three in a row.Abdelkader put the Red Wings up 1-0 midway through the first period on a power play, making them the first team to score with an extra skater at home against the Oilers, who rank among the NHL leaders in penalty killing.Jimmy Howard made 26 saves for the Red Wings, who have has lost five straight after winning six consecutive games.We got off to a good start and got the lead, but then we spent too much time outside, Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg said.Detroit pulled Howard with a minute left and a faceoff in the Edmonton end but couldnt score to send the game to overtime.There are too many times where we are passing up shots and trying to take an extra pass, Abdelkader said. Sometimes, the best play in hockey is putting the puck on the net.Game notes Gustavsson, a former Red Wing, played in just his second game this season to give Cam Talbot a break. ... Detroit F Thomas Vanek missed his sixth game with a lower body injury. ... The Oilers scratched F Zack Kassian and F Jesse Puljujarvi.UP NEXTOilers: Edmonton plays at Pittsburgh on Tuesday night.Red Wings: Detroit plays at Philadelphia on Tuesday night.

LAHAINA, Hawaii -- Georgetown was at its best in the first half, playing aggressive defense, feeding the hot hand of Rodney Pryor.The Hoyas were at their worst to start the second half, failing stops or shots to drop.Rather than folding, as they had in the past, the Hoyas gritted out a victory over a tough opponent.Pryor had 26 points and 10 rebounds, and Georgetown withstood a furious second-half rally to hold on for a 65-61 victory over No. 13 Oregon on Monday in the first round of the Maui Invitational.In the second half they came out and threw some blows, said Pryor, who had 18 points by halftime. We didnt get early stops that we needed and they got back into the game. But then we were able to take a deep breath, get some stops and get some baskets.Georgetown (1-2) led by 17 after a superb first half, capped by Pryors running 3-pointer at the buzzer. The Ducks (2-2) swarmed their way back, using pressure defense to create turnovers and easy baskets in transition.Unlike their loss to Maryland last week, the Hoyas weathered the Duck storm and will advance to the second round against No. 16 Wisconsin.LJ Peak added 17 points and hit two free throws with 2.7 seconds left to seal Georgetowns victory.Our guys did a good job not getting dejected and refocusing, Hoyas coach John Thompson III said.Oregon struggled the entire first half despite having leader Dillon Brooks in the lineup for the first time this season. The Ducks clawed their way back behind pressure defense, though didnt have enough to finish it off.Payton Pritchard led Oregon with 18 points. Brooks had eight points, including a long 3-pointer with 3.8 seconds left to get the Ducks within 2.As great a comeback as it was, we werent tough enough to finish it, Oregon coach Dana Altman said.Brooks didnt play in Oregons first three games while recovering from offseason foot surgery and Altman said he would limit the preseason All-Americans minutes in Maui.Brooks entered Mondays game about five minutes in with the Ducks struggling.He didnt do much to help them.Oregon needded six minutes to hit its first field goal and kept missing shots, going 7 for 29 from the floor in the first half. Kenny Golladay Jersey. Brooks was 0 for 3 and did not score.The Hoyas had their own problems early, but rallied behind Pryor. He hit two step-back 3-pointers late in the first half and closed it with a running, off-balance 3 at the buzzer to put Georgetown up 38-21.Give them credit. They came out fast and we made some mistakes at the start of the game, so we have to limit those, Oregon guard Casey Benson said.Second half, roles reversed.After solving Oregons extended pressure defense in the first half, the Hoyas couldnt shake it in the second.Georgetown missed its first 12 shots and the Ducks went on a 22-4 run to go up by one.Georgetown fought back, turning up its defensive pressure and used a 10-2 run to go up 53-45 with 3 minutes leftOregon tried to make a late run, but came up short.BIG PICTUREThe Hoyas showed off their inconsistencies in yet another game, but found a win to win this one after losing the previous two.The Ducks got their leader back, but still have plenty of work to do if theyre going to live up to the high preseason expectations. Perimeter shooting is a concern; Oregon went 4 for 17 from the 3-point arc after hitting 3 of 21 in a loss to Baylor.POLL IMPLICATIONSDepending on what happens the next two days in Maui, the Ducks could be looking at a precipitous fall in the poll, possibly even out of it altogether.BROOKS RETURNAltman stuck to his plan to limited Brooks minutes, only giving him 13 against the Hoyas. Brooks was superb on the defensive end, particularly on the press in the second half, and finishing 3 of 8 shooting.We held him to the 10 to 15 minutes that we thought wed play him, Altman said. And he was mad because he wanted to play more.UP NEXTGeorgetown will face No. 16 Wisconsin in Tuesdays winners bracket.Oregon faces Tennessee in the losers bracket on Tuesday.
