BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Sabres have Jack Eichel back, but theyre still desperately looking for consistency -- something they would like to see when they host the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday.The lowest-scoring team in the NHL exploded for nine goals in Eichels first two games back in the lineup last week, picking up victories over the Ottawa Senators (5-4) and New York Rangers (4-3).They had lost the two games before that, however, along with the two games since. On Saturday, Buffalo fell 2-1 to Boston. On Monday night, the Sabres had a 2-1 lead but gave up a late goal to Washington before losing 3-2 in overtime.We have to try and fight our way up the standings, Sabres winger Kyle Okposo said after the loss to Washington. You might have some lulls in the season, but we already had ours. We have to make sure were pushing forward and doing everything we can to get two points. Getting a point is OK, but we had the lead in the third.Eichel missed the first 21 games of the season due to a high ankle sprain and had a minor setback in the loss to the Capitals, but Sabres coach Dan Bylsma called the setback fairly normal.Injuries continue to be an issue for the Sabres, particularly on defense. Erik Bergdorger played in his first NHL game against the Capitals after being called up from the AHLs Rochester Americans and was Buffalos 11th different defenseman to play this season. Zach Bogosian (knee sprain), Dmitry Kulikov (lower back), Josh Gorges (foot) and Taylor Fedun (shoulder) have all been out.The Oilers, like the Sabres, have a young core of players and are looking to finally turn the corner after several years of struggling. With a record of 14-10-3, the Oilers have gotten off to a better start than the Sabres.Edmonton is coming off a 2-1 overtime loss to Minnesota on Sunday but had won its previous two games -- 6-3 at Winnipeg and 3-2 in overtime against Anaheim.In the overtime loss to the Wild, Edmonton avoided a scare in the second period when young superstar Connor McDavid hit his head on the ice and was pulled from the game by the leagues concussion spotters to undergo the leagues concussion protocol. Team doctors later determined that McDavid didnt suffer a concussion.I was pretty shocked, to be honest, McDavid said, according to the teams website. I hit my mouth on the ice. You reach up and grab your mouth when you get hit in your mouth. I think its a pretty normal thing. Obviously, the spotter thought he knew how I was feeling. He pulled me off.McDavid has been lights out through the first third of the season. Through 27 games, he had a team-best 34 points (11 goals, 23 assists), which is 13 points more than the next-highest Oiler (Leon Draisaitl, 21 points).Hes such an easy player to play with, Draisaitl told the teams website. He always wants the puck and hes so fast. I dont really need to talk about how good he is. Hopefully we can keep this going.

Joakim Soria Jersey . Now, with Game 6 set for Fenway Park and an 8:07 p.m. ET first pitch, the Detroit Tigers face the unenviable task of having to beat the Boston Red Sox twice, on the road, to advance to the World Series.The Chicago Bears have signed veteran quarterback Brian Hoyer on a one-year contract. Hoyer, 30, played last season with the Houston Texans where he spent time as their starter, and he is expected to be the primary backup to Bears No 1 Jay Cutler.He is coming off his best season in the NFL, hitting 60.7 per cent of his pass attempts for the Texans and throwing 19 touchdown passes to only seven interceptions - he started nine of the 11 games he played in. I like the idea of having an experienced backup [quarterback], said Bears general manager Ryan Pace.Its important for that position and it just gives us security going forward. I think its key.When hes played, hes been productive. Cutler has been the Bears starter, at least when fit, since he joined the team in 2009 I like that [offensive coordinator] Dowell [Loggains] has been with him, has a lot of comfort with him. Ive watched him play over the years. Hes a very intelligent player.ddddddddddddI know hes got a strong work ethic because weve got coaches that have been with him. I think hes a really good piece to add to the mix. The Bears picked Georgia linebacker Leonard Floyd with the ninth pick of Thursdays first round The Hoyer signing came hours after the conclusion of the NFL Draft, which was held in Chicago and saw the Bears spend most of their early picks on defensive players.They moved up in the first round to select pass rusher Leonard Floyd with the ninth pick of the draft and also added tackle Jonathan Bullard, linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski and defensive backs Deon Bush and Deiondre Hall in the opening four rounds.
