    EDMONTON Youth Jaden Schwartz Jersey , Alberta (AP) — the Detroit Red Wings were finally able to close out a game.Dylan Larkin liked the timing, too.Glendening scored twice and Detroit headed into the All-Star break with a 3-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night.“It was nice to be able to finish one,” Glendening said after his team squandered leads in each of its previous two games. “This trip hasn’t been kind to us in that respect, but we’ve played some pretty good hockey and to get some results before the break is huge for us.”Larkin had a goal for the Red Wings, who snapped their two-game skid. Jimmy Howard made 32 saves.“It feels really good to get two points going into the break feeling good about our game,” Larkin said. “We played a solid game and we really didn’t give (Connor) McDavid and (Leon) Draisaitl a whole lot even if they found a way to get on the scoresheet. We took a lot of time and space away from them. That’s the way we have to play and it’s a huge two points for us.”Draisaitl and Matt Benning scored for the Oilers Jake Allen Jersey , who have lost three in a row.“Everybody here has to look in the mirror and ask themselves if they are doing enough and playing the right way and playing for the team,” forward Alex Chiasson said.Detroit broke a scoreless deadlock four minutes into the second period when Larkin got his 21st of the season on a quick wrist shot.The Oilers got caught scrambling midway through the second, leading to a backhand goal by Glendening.Draisaitl swatted in a puck out of midair for his 27th at 4:30 of the third period as Edmonton finally scored. Detroit restored its two-goal lead when Glendening somehow squeezed in a bad-angle shot past goalie Mikko Koskinen.The Oilers pulled Koskinen early and it paid off with 2:26 left on a point drive from Benning, but they were unable to tie it.“We just have to keep battling,” said McDavid, the Edmonton captain. “We have said everything that there is to say. It is just up to us to do it now.“I think guys are tired right now. Maybe it is a good time to step away and refresh and come back at it with a clear head.”NOTES: The Red Wings improved to 4-9-2 in their past 15 games. … Edmonton won the only other meeting this season Joel Edmundson Jersey , 4-3 on Nov. 3. … Koskinen made his first start for the Oilers since signing a three-year contract with an average annual salary of $4.5 million on Monday. … Two players the Oilers placed on waivers Monday, Ty Rattie and Ryan Spooner, cleared waivers Tuesday. Spooner dressed against Detroit, while Rattie was a healthy scratch.UP NEXTRed Wings: Off until Feb. 1, when they host Toronto.Oilers: Play at Philadelphia on Feb. 2. TORONTO (AP) Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby is the most admired and appreciated player in the NHL, judging from the 2017-18 NHLPA Player Poll.A survey of more than 500 players resulted in Crosby being voted the most difficult to play against Vladimir Tarasenko Jersey , best role model, best team player, the player you’d want to win one game, and the player who would be a great coach upon retirement. Crosby finished second to Connor McDavid for which player to start a franchise with, and to Wayne Gretzky to the question of picking anyone all-time as a teammate.Players were asked more than 20 questions, with the NHL Players’ Association choosing which to publish. This is in addition to regular conversations with players on topics of importance that include feedback kept internally at the NHLPA.Among the most interesting responses was that 77.3 percent of players are fine with the way points are decided: two for any win and one for an overtime or shootout loss. But several suggested the international point system of three for a win in regulation Alex Killorn Jersey Kids , two for a win in overtime or a shootout, and one for an overtime or shootout loss.The Montreal Canadiens‘ Bell Centre was voted the best rink to play in and the home of the best ice, while the Florida Panthers‘ BB&T Center has the worst ice, according to players surveyed. Joel Quenneville of the Chicago Blackhawks, who like Crosby has won the Stanley Cup three times, was voted the coach players would most like to play for.McDavid not surprisingly was voted the fastest skater Andrei Vasilevskiy Jersey , and Washington Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom was voted the most underrated player.—
