Cleveland Browns Jerseys .Benoit Pouliot scored twice, Cam Talbot made 34 saves and the Oilers stretched their winning streak to four games with a 4-1 victory over the Washington Capitals on Wednesday night.I think this start is huge for us, Pouliot said after his team improved to 6-1-0. The last couple of years, we havent had good starts and it is tough to climb back. Now we are having a good start, and we just have to keep it going.Patrick Maroon and Milan Lucic also scored for the Oilers, off to their best start since opening 8-1-0 during the 1985-86 season. They have won four of five at Rogers Place, their new downtown arena.Its a big win for us, said captain Connor McDavid, who had two assists to give him 11 points this season.Tonight was kind of a benchmark for us. ... Tonight was a big test. These guys are a giant in the NHL and we were able to play well and get a win, which is huge for our team.Alex Ovechkin scored for the Capitals (3-2-1), who have lost two straight in regulation -- something that did not happen at all last season.We just need a little more push from the whole group, coach Barry Trotz said. Were going to have to get a little more greasy, get some of those greasy goals.Those key moments when were still in the game, we have to recognize those moments and were not recognizing those moments right now. We didnt play well enough to win.The chances were fairly even in a scoreless first period, with the Capitals getting 11 shots on Talbot, and Edmonton directing 10 shots at Washington starter Braden Holtby.Edmonton was badly outplayed to start the second period, but ended up taking the games first lead just more than seven minutes in as Ryan Nugent-Hopkins intercepted a pass, danced around defender Dmitry Orlov and put a long shot on net that Pouliot redirected past Holtby.The Oilers made it 2-0 with 2:52 remaining in the second, as Pouliot scored his third of the season by banking in a shot off Holtby from behind the Washington net.Things got a bit heated late in the period when Talbot had enough of T.J. Oshie hitting him with his stick in front on a power-play scramble and ended up unleashing a couple punches of his own that led to a roughing minor.More or less cross-checking my knee while I was down, Talbot said. I didnt think that was right so I more or less gave him a shot back and it was even after that.Washington cut into the lead 9 seconds into the third as Ovechkin slid a puck under Talbot, scoring in his fourth consecutive game.Edmonton shook off that goal quickly, though, as McDavid set up Jesse Puljujarvi for a glorious opportunity that Maroon finished off a rebound.The Oilers got some insurance midway through the third when Lucic tipped Andrej Sekeras power-play point shot into the net.Game notes It was the first of two meetings this season between the Capitals and Oilers. The next time they play is Feb. 24 in Washington. ... Edmonton has had the NHLs first star of the week for the first two weeks of the season, as Talbot followed McDavid in winning the award on Monday.UP NEXTCapitals: Washington is at Vancouver on Saturday night, then will close its Western Canada swing with games in Calgary on Sunday night and Winnipeg on Tuesday night.Oilers: Edmonton is at Vancouver on Friday night.

She most recently played for Sky Blue FC of the National Womens Soccer League. "It just felt like it was my time to move on," she said in a phone interview from her hometown of Burlington, Ont. Match-winning Melbourne prop Jesse Bromwich says the experience of their early finals exit last NRL season has put the Storm in a good position as they chase their first title since 2012.The Storm crashed out last year in the preliminary finals, shock 20-points losers to North Queensland at AAMI Park.They got some revenge with a qualifying final win over the Cowboys last Saturday night but Bromwich said last years final four defeat proved to them that a grand final berth is far from guaranteed.In the prelim they will host either Canberra or Penrith, who play off in a sudden-death final this Saturday.That definitely hurt us and right now we can probably look at it as a positive, Bromwich said.We can look at it now and tweak things.Bromwich said they had already taken on board how the Cowboys started their preliminary final last season, and given them a dose of their own medicine with a high-energy start in last Saturdays win.While the Storm have played two of their best matches of the season; in their final round win over Cronullla to secure the minor premiership and then in the win against North Queensland Bromwich said they were delighted to be able to take next weekend off.

Were definitely looking forward to week off and we deserve it.Were still going to be working hard at training there just wont be as many bruises.Bromwich reaffirmed his status as the games best prop against the Cowboys, scoring the match-winning try North Queensland and topped the front-row stats.The Kiwi Test captain ran 164 metres - more than the combined tally of Cowboys duo Matt Scott and James Tamou, who managed just 144 between them.Typical of Bromwich, he was eager to pat his teammates on the back for their efforts.Our goal line defence was outstanding and thats what wins big games and thats something weve got to keep, he said.We cant be happy with that; weve got to keep working as its going to be even more important in our next games.
