WINNIPEG, Manitoba -- Mathieu Perreault has helped teams win the only two NHL outdoor games he has played. The Winnipeg forward was asked if he might me a lucky charm for the Jets on Sunday in the Heritage Classic against the Edmonton Oilers.If I can go 3-for-3, then Ill think that for sure, Perreault said after the Jets practiced Saturday at 33,000-seat Investors Group Field. Ive only been on the winning end of it and its just been awesome both times. It feels different than just a normal game. .. But honestly, once the game starts and youre actually playing hockey, you kind of lose focus of whats going on outside.The 28-year-old was with the Anaheim Ducks when they beat the Los Angeles Kings 3-0 in the 2014 Stadium Series at Dodger Stadium. In 2011, his Washington Capitals beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-1 in the Winter Classic at Heinz Field.Edmonton newcomer Milan Lucic felt lucky to finally play in one of the leagues showcase games.Lucic was injured when his former Boston Bruins beat the Philadelphia Flyers 2-1 in overtime in the 2010 Winter Classic at Fenway Park. To make matters worse, there was no seat for him in the park so he watched the game from the dressing room with fellow injured teammate, and now Jets defenseman, Mark Stuart.Lucic was then traded in June 2015 to Los Angeles, missing Bostons 5-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Jan. 1 in the Winter Classic at Gillette Stadium.Hopefully, this experience makes up for missing both of those, he said.The Vancouver native has never played hockey outside.Growing up in Vancouver, we had more puddles than we did anything else, Lucic said. Its my first time getting to play an outdoor game as an adult, as a kid, anything, so for me Im really looking forward to it. Im like a kid inside getting my first chance to play outside.It was the same for Oilers forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, who was born in Burnaby, British Columbia. The 23-year-old recalled the time he tried to make an ice rink in his front yard.It didnt work, he said. It flooded it, it definitely didnt freeze.Oilers captain Connor McDavid recalled his family making a rink in their small Richmond Hill, Ontario, backyard one winter, but that was it.Then it was either we wanted a pool, my dad wanted a hot tub, and he got the deck and the hot tub, McDavid said. That kind of put a dent in the whole backyard rink thing.Fourteen players from both rosters, including those on injured reserve, have skated in an outdoor game. Oilers forward Benoit Pouliot has played the most with three, one with Montreal and two for the New York Rangers.Players from both clubs said the ice was a little rough and the glare from the sun made it a bit difficult to see the puck at times, but theyll be prepared. Some may wear tinted visors, others tried out black strips under their eyes. Environment Canadas weather forecast for Sunday calls for partly sunny conditions and a high of 48 degrees for the leagues 19th outdoor game.Edmonton is rolling to start the season at 4-1-0, while the Jets have won twice in overtime and are 4-2-0.You cant try to do too much on a big stage, Jets center Mark Scheifele said. Youve just got to keep it simple and play your regular game. Percy Miller Jersey .

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Justin Maxwell has provided a huge boost for Kansas City since coming over from the Astros. Maxwell homered and then singled twice in a six-run sixth as the Kansas City Royals rallied for a 9-6 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Friday night. The Royals have won 15 of their past 17 games to move seven games above .500, matching their best record of the season. They are 4 1-2 games back in the wild-card standings. "Its just team chemistry, no matter whos at the plate or whos on the mound, we all have each others backs," Maxwell said. "Thats the main thing." Maxwell, who the Royals acquired on July 31 from the Astros for a minor league pitcher, homered leading off the second. With the Royals trailing 6-3 in the sixth, he led off the inning with a single. The Royals sent 11 men to the plate in the inning against Red Sox pitchers Jake Peavy, Drake Britton and Pedro Beato. "I led off, just trying to get on base, not do too much," Maxwell said. "It was just one good at-bat after another good at-bat. I think thats how you roll." Maxwell was making his first start in centre and only his fourth start since joining the Royals, but manager Ned Yost promises he will be seeing plenty more action. "Hes got the opportunity to change the game with one swing," Yost said. "Well keep running him out there." Peavy, who was making his second Red Sox start since being acquired in a July 30 trade from the Chicago White Sox, yielded singles to Maxwell, Mike Moustakas and Alcides Escobar to start the inning. Escobars RBI single finished Peavy. "With the way Jake had settled in, he had good innings in the fourth and fifth, and wed gained momentum for ourselves, he probably had one inning left with his pitch count," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "Im not going to say it was surprising, but he left some balls up and they made him pay. "The put away pitch was a challenge for how they put the ball in play and go the other way. We just couldnt stop the momentum in the sixth." Eric Hosmers two-run single with two outs off Britton put the Royals on top 7-6. David Lough contributed a sacrifice fly, while Billy Butler doubled home Hosmer. Maxwells second single in the inning scored Butler with the final run.dddddddddddd Mike Napoli, a career .368 hitter off Royals right-hander Ervin Santana, cleared the bases with a two-out third inning three-run double. That ended Santanas night. He gave up six runs on nine hits, including David Ortizs 22nd home run in the third, in 3 2/3 innings, his shortest outing of the season. "Its the best feeling," Santana said. "It doesnt matter how we got there, we won." Peavy lasted five innings, plus three batters, allowing six runs on 10 hits. "I just didnt make a whole lot of consistent pitches," Peavy said. "I had Maxwell 0-2 and threw him a changeup and he did a nice job (to start the sixth). "Youve got to win games when your offence scores six. I didnt feel good stuff-wise or control-wise. They battled and put the ball in play for being as free-swinging as they are. My stuff wasnt very sharp." Francisley Bueno (1-0), who was just promoted Thursday from Triple-A Omaha, picked up the victory with 2 1-3 scoreless innings. He has two big league wins, both against the Red Sox. Britton (1-1) was charged with the loss. The Royals 16-hit attack, included three hits each by Butler, Hosmer and Maxwell. Alex Gordon had two hits, including his 12th home run. Greg Holland worked the ninth for his 31st save in 33 chances. "It was a fantastic win," Yost said. "A night when Ervin didnt have his command, but our offence picked him up. Our bullpen again was dynamite." Notes: Red Sox C David Ross, who has been out since June 18 with a concussion, could start rehabbing with Tuesday with Double-A Portland if he gets the final approval. He has been cleared by Dr. Michael Collins, a concussion specialist in Pittsburgh, and the results were forwarded to Major League Baseball, which has the final word. If all goes well, Ross could be activated Aug. 19, the first day he is eligible. ...
