After dropping their final six games of December, the Wild opened the new calendar year with four consecutive wins.

Carey Price didnt, but he still came out on top against one of his rivals for the No. 1 job at the Sochi Games. The Anahim Lake, B.C., native was stellar in making 39 saves in his home province and Lars Eller got credit for a bizarre short-handed winner as the Canadiens defeated the Canucks 4-1. . Any real chance at payback wont come until the playoff. Still, Pittsburgh knows its taut 3-2 win over the Bruins on Wednesday night is a pretty good place to start laying the groundwork. "They are a very good defensive team," Penguins forward Brandon Sutter said. GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The outlook for Knile Davis season changed with a late-night phone call.On Tuesday, the running back was buried on the Kansas City Chiefs depth chart.By Thursday night, Davis could be a very important player in the backfield for the Green Bay Packers when they host the Chicago Bears in the 193rd meeting of the NFLs oldest rivalry.Injuries have hit the running back position for Green Bay, a troubling development for an offense that is also struggling to get consistency from the Aaron Rodgers-led passing attack.Enter Davis, a fourth-stringer with Kansas City who found out late Monday night that he had been dealt to the Packers for a conditional draft pick. Soon enough, Davis could be taking handoffs from Rodgers.He can get the ball out, and then you know weve got to run the ball to keep them off of him. So its a good balance, Davis said.It is how its supposed to work when the Packers (3-2) are clicking. The past two games, though, hard-charging back Eddie Lacy and the rushing attack have showed more consistency than the passing game.But Lacy has a left ankle injury. Backup James Starks has already been ruled out with a knee injury.We all have a part in it, and weve all got to improve individually so collectively we can get back on the right track and start playing a little bit more consistently, Rodgers said.By yardage alone, the Bears offense is humming compared to the Packers. Theyre seventh in total offense (375.2 yards per game) and fourth in passing (284.2 yards), with Brian Hoyer having started the past four games with Jay Cutler sidelined by a thumb injury.But the yardage hasnt led to a lot of points. Chicago (1-5) is among the lowest in the league in scoring at 16.8 points a game.This might be the game in which the Bears can take chances deep to open up the offense, especially with Green Bay riddled with injuries at cornerback.Hoyer plans to take his chances, as long as theyre not too risky.So even as frustrated as we are, trying to score touchdowns in the red area, you still dont want to take points off the board, Hoyer said.Other notes and things to watch on Thursday night:FAMILIAR FOES: The Bears-Packers rivalry goes back to 1921, with Chicago holding a 94-92-6 edge in the series. The teams last played on a rain-swept Thanksgiving night last year, when Chicago won 17-13 to sspoil a game that marked the return of former Packers quarterback Brett Favre to Lambeau Field. Athletics Jerseys From China. EARS DOWN: The Bears are in danger of falling to 1-6 for the first time since 2000. Whether its because of a long line of injuries or simple breakdowns, Chicago appears to have taken a step backward in coach John Foxs second season. The past two weeks have been particularly rough.The Bears lost to Indianapolis on a late touchdown pass from Andrew Luck to T.Y. Hilton. Against Jacksonville last week, they led by 13 going into the fourth quarter, only to lose 17-16 on a 51-yard touchdown from Blake Bortles to Arrelious Benn in the closing minutes.CORNER CONCERN: Pass coverage is an issue for the Packers with so many injuries in the secondary . Their best cornerback, Sam Shields, was placed on injured reserve this week with a concussion to make room for Davis. Quinten Rollins says he will miss his second straight game with a groin injury. Damarious Randall also has a groin injury, and he appears unlikely to play after leaving Sundays loss to Dallas.That leaves LaDarius Gunter, who had a poor game last week against the Cowboys, and Demetri Goodson as the likely starting cornerbacks.AIR BEARS: Hoyer has a franchise-record four straight 300-yard passing games filling in for Cutler. He has also thrown 189 passes this season without an interception.But the Bears are 25th in the league in red zone offense, having converted just 47 percent.Weve got to be better. Weve got to execute better, offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said. Ive got to call better plays and weve got to coach it better. In the NFL, the games are so close, you cant have that point change.RUN TIME: Davis was studying the Packers playbook to try to get ready for Thursday. The fourth-year backs best season was 2014, when he ran for 463 yards and six touchdowns on 134 carries. Green Bay is also likely to activate rookie Don Jackson, who ran for more than 2,300 yards in his college career at Nevada, from the practice squad.---AP Sports Writer Andrew Seligman in Chicago contributed to this story.---AP NFL website: and Genaro Armas at: Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Jerseys NFL China Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Discount NFL Jerseys ' ' '
