EDMONTON -- Edgars Kuldas goal with 6:47 remaining in the third period was the winner as the Edmonton Oil Kings bounced back from an early 2-0 loss to remain in the running in the Western Hockey League championships, defeating the defending champion Portland Winterhawks 3-2 on Tuesday night. Authentic Ray Allen Jersey . Henrik Samuelsson and Luke Bertolucci also scored for the Oil Kings, who are now 9-0 on home ice in the playoffs to cut Portlands series lead to 2-1. Chase De Leo and Mathew Dumba responded for the Winterhawks, who suffered just their fourth loss in their last 46 games, a string of success running all the way back to Jan. 11. As has been the case in every game in the series, the Winterhawks came out flying to grab an early lead in the game, scoring twice in less than a minute to go up 2-0 on their first three shots before the game was even four minutes old. Portland struck 2:38 into the first period as a big bounce off the boards came out front to De Leo and he spun and beat Edmonton goalie Tristan Jarry with a shot to the top corner for his 10th goal off the playoffs. Just 52 seconds later it was 2-0 Portland, as Brendan Leipsic fed a pass to defender Dumba in the slot and the Minnesota Wild draft pick made the most of the opportunity. Edmonton allowed goals in the first three minutes of the first two games of the series as well, and was outscored by a combined 5-0 in the first periods of its opening two losses of the series in Portland. Despite the early deficit, the Oil Kings fought back to outshoot the Hawks 19-10 in the opening frame, however Portland goalie Corbin Boes stood his ground. Edmonton got on the board four minutes into the second period with a power play goal as Curtis Lazar made a perfect pass across to Samuelsson at the side of the net and the Phoenix Coyotes prospect sent his fifth of the playoffs into a wide-open net to cut the lead to 2-1. The Oil Kings pulled even with nine minutes remaining in the second period as Bertolucci picked up a loss puck and went in on a breakaway, only to be pushed down from behind by Dumba. However, Bertolucci got right back on his feet and was able to make a nifty move to freeze Boes on the deke for his sixth of the post-season. It appeared the Oil Kings had taken the lead just over a minute later on a mad scramble in front of the Portland goal, however, a lengthy review concluded that Samuelsson had kicked the puck into the net. Jarry made several key saves during the first half of the third period to keep it a tied game, none bigger than an early glove save on Taylor Leier. Edmonton took their first lead of the entire series with just under seven minutes left in the third as Mitch Moroz sent a puck in front and Kulda was able to redirect it into the net to put the Oil Kings up 3-2. Portland furiously tried to knot the game back up in the late stages and had a great chance in the dying seconds, but Dumba shot a puck over the net. Jarry faced 15 shots in the third and 37 in the game. Game 4 of the WHL Finals takes place on Wednesday, also in Edmonton.

CEDAR PARK, Texas -- Toronto Marlies coach Steve Spott didnt let his team dwell on its first loss of the Calder Cup Playoffs, a 6-3 setback against the Texas Stars in Game 2 of the Western Conference final. The Marlies had won their first eight playoff games before Game 2, but the streak was derailed as Brett Ritchie and Scott Glennie each scored twice for Texas-- which fired 52 shots at Torontos net. "We turned the music on right away," Spott said referring to the teams post-game dressing room. "I went in and said a couple things about what we knew to do better. Then I said, when we leave here, Im a believer negativity is a wasted energy, and we turned the music on and we get back to work." The Stars have mustered 102 shots through two games and Toronto goalie Drew MacIntyre has stopped 95 of 101 shots. "We gave up, in my mind, three free goals," said Spott. "Weve got to be smarter and weve got to be tighter, the margin or error this time of year is slim." Glennies second goal gave Texas a two-goal lead with less than six minutes remaining in the third period after the teams traded five goals in the second. Spott said he felt Glennies goal, which came on a rebound after Mike Hedden drove hard to the net, ended Torontos comeback effort. "I thought we had some good push back when went to the third and then we gave up a soft goal," said Spott. "A coverage issue that we got beat on and then it ends up in the back of our netathose soft goals on some of those coverages, weve got to address." Chris Muellers fifth goal of the playoffs capped the barrage to give Texas a 4-3 lead 61 seconds before the second intermission. Authentic Gary Payton Jersey. Before Muellers goal Glennie and Ritchie scored for Texas, while Josh Leivo and Peter Holland countered for the Marlies. Glennies goal, which gave the Stars a temporary 2-1 lead, was the first time the Marlies trailed since the regular season finale against the Rochester Americans - a streak of 512 minutes five seconds. "Not any disrespect to Texas, but I dont think we were on our game tonight and they pounced on that," Marlies defenceman T.J. Brennan said. "Theyre a good team and they took advantage of a lot things we didnt do (in the second period)." Earlier Toronto had opened the scoring on its first shot 4:22 into the game when Jerry DAmigo took advantage of a Texas turnover and beat Christopher Nilstorp over the right shoulder for his fifth goal of the playoffs. Travis Morin added an empty-net goal for the Stars while Nilstorp had 27 stops for the win. The 30-year-old Swedish netminder made his biggest stop with 13.5 seconds left in the second period on Stuart Percy. Percy had an apparent open net, but Nilstorp reached out and around a screen to make the glove save with his right hand. "Oh, (Nilstorp) played unbelievable tonight," Stars forward Mike Hedden said. "That save he made at the end of the second, I think it really lifted the guys on the bench and carried the momentum into the third period." Game 3 of the best-of-seven series is Wednesday at Torontos Ricoh Coliseum.
