EDMONTON -- The Edmonton Oil Kings refuse to be written off. Jayson Tatum Womens Jersey . Tristan Jarry made 26 saves for his third shutout of the playoffs as the Oil Kings won their second straight game at home to even up the Western Hockey League final, coming away with a 2-0 victory over the defending champion Portland Winterhawks on Wednesday. Mitchell Moroz and Curtis Lazar scored the goals for the Oil Kings, who have looked a lot slicker at home as they improved to 10-0 on home ice and tied the Ed Chynoweth Cup at two heading back to Portland, Ore., for Game 5 on Friday. "At the end of the day, we know we are the underdogs in this series," said Oil Kings head coach Derek Laxdal. "However, we are tied 2-2 in the series going back to Portland. We are going to have to win one game in that building and our mindset is why not Friday night? "We want to make a series of this. We want a chance to win the Western Hockey League championship. These kids have worked hard to get it to 2-2. Some people wrote us off when we were down 2-0, but you have to give our guys credit. We came out tonight with probably our best effort in the playoffs thanks to (Tristan Jarrys) goaltending and the leadership of guys like (Griffin Reinhart)." It was the first game of the series that the Oil Kings werent trailing within the first three minutes and Moroz said it was nice not to have to dig themselves out of a hole for once. "We came out the way we wanted to in this game," he said. "We had some chances early and didnt capitalize, but we kept working away at it. We didnt give up the first period goals this time, which was nice, not having to battle back like we did in the other games. "We just played our game. We stuck with it and were patient." The Winterhawks have lost two in a row after allowing only three losses in their previous 45 games, a string of success dating back to Jan. 11. "We didnt get the start that we wanted tonight," said Portland forward Adam De Champlain. "We came out a bit flat. Having to kill seven penalties hurt us and it really allowed them to feed off their fans. When we had the momentum we had trouble sticking it. We didnt have the energy we needed on the bench." It was the first time since December 2011 that the Winterhawks, who led the league with 338 goals this season, have been shut out. "Its playoff hockey, everyone understands the goals are harder to come by," said Winterhawks head coach Mike Johnston. "There are going to be moments like this. It is just a bit of adversity for us to handle right now. We just need to get through it. "We just have to regroup. It is a best two-out-of-three series now." The Oil Kings had a much better start to the game than the previous three outings as they avoided allowing a goal against in the first three minutes of the matchup. Edmonton actually had the bulk of the scoring chances in the first until the Hawks came back late. The Oil Kings had 14 shots in the scoreless first on Portland goalie Corbin Boes, while the Winterhawks responded with 13 on Jarry, a second-round draft choice of the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2013. Edmonton finally broke the scoring deadlock nine minutes into the second period. After sustained pressure on the shift, a Dysin Mayo shot caromed off the boards and rolled off the top of the net to Moroz in front where the Edmonton Oilers draft pick slammed his fifth goal of the playoffs past Boes. Jarry prevented Portland from tying the game up two minutes later as Oliver Bjorkstrand picked the pocket of Reid Petryk at the Edmonton blue-line, but couldnt beat the Oil Kings goalie on the partial breakaway. The edge in shots had increased to 28-18 for Edmonton by the end of the second period. The Oil Kings made it 2-0 six minutes into the third as Brett Pollock threw a hard pass on net on a two-on-one and Lazar was able to tip the puck through Boes legs. It hit the post, but then went in off of the Portland goalies skates to count as the Ottawa Senators prospects eighth goal of the playoffs. Edmonton kept driving and it was only the heroics of Boes that kept the game close midway through the third as he stopped breakaways by Petryk and Lazar in a span of just over a minute midway through the third. The Oil Kings thought they put the game away for good with an empty-net goal by Pollock, however the play was ruled off-side. Notes: The Winterhawks managed to score in the first three minutes of each of the first three games of the series, holding an edge of 7-0 in first-period goals in the series coming into Wednesdays game. ... Its the third consecutive season that the Oil Kings and Winterhawks are meeting in the WHL final. Edmonton defeated Portland in seven games to win in 2012, while Portland won in six games last year. It is Portlands fourth consecutive trip to the league championships. ... The Winterhawks power play was just 1 for 13 through the first three games of the series. ... Portland has 10 players on its roster who have been drafted by NHL teams, while the Oil Kings have five. Jayson Tatum White Jersey . Andrew Luck couldnt believe his ears.

AMIR JOHNSON: Nice to see him back in the lineup Tuesday night in Washington DC. Played with great energy and purpose. Its amazing when a guy gets those few precious days to recover what it does to the bounce in their step and overall game/confidence.Kyle Walker breathed a sigh of relief after hearing Mauricio Pochettino had agreed a new Tottenham contract and insists the clubs title challenge is not over yet. Pochettino has struck a verbal agreement over a two-year extension, which will keep him at White Hart Lane until 2021 - the deal is now with the Argentinians lawyers and expected to be confirmed in the coming days.Manchester United, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain had all reportedly considered Pochettino for their top jobs next season after the 44-year-old led Spurs to second in the Premier League and all-but secured Champions League qualification. Walker was being interviewed at Tottenhams training ground on Friday as Pochettino announced his new deal and when the full-back was told, his reaction was telling.Ive been waiting for someone to say that for ages now! Hes said it? Thank goodness for that. Im over the moon, Walker said.It is a relief. There is always going to be speculation. It happens all the time. Kyle Walker (L) has hailed Mauricio Pochettinos influence on Spurs after news broke he had verbally agreed to stay This player is going here, this manager is going there but I think thats not for me to talk about or for any other player to talk about. We just need to conduct ourselves professionally.Pochettino is an immensely popular figure in the Tottenham dressing room and it is understood there was a growing nervousness among the players about their head coachs future.The squads young crop are particularly loyal with the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Erik Lamela and Danny Rose, as well as Walker, all enjoying remarkable progress under his tutelage. Mauricio Pochettino explains why hes extending his contract at Tottenham. The new deal could keep there until 2021 For me, hes not just the manager on the pitch but its how he is off the pitch. That says everything for me, Walker said.Some of the managers that have come in, you know...theres young players here now and sometimes they do need an arm around them and to say, you can do this, sit them down, look at the TV screen, you can do this better, because we are still learning.We are probably not in our prime yet, most of us, so we are still learning and he is the man to take this club forward and onto new levels. Its just everytthing about him, his aura as well. Jayson Tatum Youth Jersey. Its just fantastic. Guus Hiddink insists Chelseas players will take all their remaining games seriously Tottenham visit London rivals Chelsea on Monday, live on Sky Sports, knowing their title challenge could be over by the time they kick-off if Leicester beat Manchester United on Sunday, also live on Sky Sports.Even if the Foxes are not crowned champions this weekend, they only need three points from United, Everton and Chelsea to finish the job - but Walker has not given up hope.Its a difficult one because its not over until the fat lady sings, Walker said. Man United are still chasing something, Everton are not going to want to lose. Willian says the Chelsea players dont want Tottenham to win the league and will be doing their upmost to beat them There is no professional footballer who steps onto a pitch and says OK, were just going to chuck this one in. Everton, probably, have a point to prove, having not had the best of seasons.Chelsea likewise, the last game of the season at Stamford Bridge, theyll want to put out a performance for their crowd, so hopefully, theyre not easy games [for Leicester]. But first and foremost, we need to go to Stamford Bridge and win, and weve got two tough games after that. So nothing is a given.
