Edmonton, AB (SportsNetwork.com) - David Perron scored the deciding goal in the third period as the Edmonton Oilers ended an 11-game losing streak with a 2-1 win over the San Jose Sharks on Sunday. Nail Yakupov tallied a power-play goal and Ben Scrivens turned aside 20-of-21 shots for the Oilers, who won their first game since a 3-1 victory over the Rangers on Nov. 9. This doesnt mean a lot if were not going to stick to it, said Scrivens. We have to replicate that kind of effort night after night. Edmonton also defeated a Western Conference opponent for the first time this season after starting out 0-12-4. Tye McGinn provided San Joses lone goal and Alex Stalock made 22 saves as the Sharks had a four-game winning streak come to an end. The two teams will play again in San Jose on Tuesday. Perrons wrist shot from the right circle deflected off San Jose defenseman Brenden Dillon and into the net with 9:34 remaining for the deciding marker. San Jose pulled Stalock with over a minute to play, but Scrivens and the Oilers defense stood tall to earn an elusive win. After a scoreless first, Jordan Eberle retrieved the rebound of a point blast below the goal line and sent the puck to Yakupov, who wristed a shot on a vacant net 7:45 into the second on the power play. Patrick Marleau tracked down the puck in the left corner, looked over his shoulder and backhanded a pass to the slot, where McGinn one-timed the puck past Scrivens for a tied game just over two minutes later. I just tried to get to the net. Pat is great player, he can find you pretty much anywhere you are on the ice, said McGinn. Game Notes Marleau extended his point streak to five games, totaling one goal and six assists in that span ... Scrivens won his first game since a 3-0 shutout against Montreal on Oct. 27, ending a personal nine-game skid of his own ... Stalock started his first game since Nov. 8 ...

Custom San Diego Padres Jerseys . -- Chris Tillman paid no attention to the Baltimore bullpen as it started to stir in the ninth inning.NASHVILLE -- Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne cant wait to test himself in a game. The Predators, who announced Wednesday that they are sending Rinne to their AHL affiliate in Milwaukee, are cautiously waiting to see if the two-time Vezina Trophy finalist can help them chase down a playoff berth. Both Rinne and the team will have a better idea of where he is after the conditioning assignment for games Friday and likely Sunday in this latest step in his recovery from an E. coli infection in his surgically repaired left hip. Rinne has been limited to only nine games this season. Coach Barry Trotz said the Predators will be monitoring Rinne after each practice and game. "Hes at a point where weve got to find out where he is game-wise and also body and mind," Trotz said of Rinne. The Predators start a five-game home stand Thursday night hosting Tampa Bay just four points back of the Western Conferences eighth and final playoff spot with 23 games remaining. They missed the playoffs last year for only the second time in nine seasons. How quickly Rinne rejoins them depends on how he fares in Milwaukee. Rinne practiced with the Predators on Wednesday before travelling to Milwaukee, and he called this a big day with doctors giving him the green light for the latest step in his long recovery. He has been sidelined since Oct. 24 for an infection in the hip surgically repaired May 9, and Rinne said hes focusing on getting his game back and help the Predators. "So far I feel really comfortable," Rinne said. "Im happy how things have gone in practice and how things have gone so far. I think Im actually a little bit surprised its been going so well. But like I said, its still a process but for sure I feel like Im really close to game shape andd now its just a final couple of games before I jump on the ice with the Nashville team.dddddddddddd" Rinne, 31, is sixth in the NHL with 152 wins since the 2008-09 season and has 30 shutouts since 2008-09, which leads all goalies during that time. He hasnt played since Oct. 22 in a 2-0 loss at Minnesota. He is 4-4-1 with a 2.31 goals-against average and a .917 save percentage. The Predators have played four other goalies this season trying to make up for Rinnes absence. Currently, Carter Hutton is their starter, and he is 13-9-4 with a .904 save percentage and 2.87 goals-against average. Trotz said what theyve been missing without Rinne is a game-changer who can mean the difference in as many as 20 points in the standings each season. "Hes an elite goaltender and steals games maybe when you dont deserve it," Trotz said. "He can steal points." Trotz said theyre not sure what theyll see from Rinne. "Its not about Pekka coming back and being a saviour," Trotz said. "I think its Pekka coming back and adding to our mix. And if he can get his game to the level close to what hes capable of, were a better hockey team plain and simple. To me, its about Pekka for hopefully the next five or six years. Hes a difference maker." Captain Shea Weber, who practiced with the Predators on Wednesday after helping Canada win the Olympic gold medal Sunday in Sochi, said the Predators are definitely excited about the prospect of Rinne returning to the lineup as they try to chase down a playoff spot. "Weve been through a lot this year and to see what position we put ourselves in here four points out coming in its not going to be easy by any means," Weber said. "If anyone can do it, we can." ' ' '
