EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Stitched Penguins Jerseys . -- Adrian Peterson shouldnt have any reason to get "hot" at Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier this week. Peterson returned to practice for Minnesota on Friday and is expected to play in Sundays game at Cincinnati as long as he doesnt have any setbacks with his sprained right foot. The leagues second-leading rusher, Peterson is listed as questionable for the Vikings (4-9-1). "Im looking forward to playing this week," Peterson said Friday. "Get another day to rest tomorrow, which is going to be good. As far as the foot goes, Ill be ready to go." Peterson missed last weeks game after spraining his foot a week earlier at Baltimore. Though he returned to practice on a limited basis last Friday, Frazier held Peterson out of Sundays 48-30 win against Philadelphia. Frazier said it wasnt an easy conversation with Peterson, who admitted to being "hot" and devastated" about having to sit out. "Because I felt I was to the point where I was ready to go," Peterson said. "My mind was ready to get out there and play. Im in game mode and then I find out that Im not playing. No matter what I had to say, thats what it was. Thats why it was tough. But fortunately we got a win, so that kind of ease the pain a little bit." Frazier expects Peterson to play this week, but wanted to make sure the NFL MVP didnt have any setbacks prior to Sundays game. Peterson was limited in Fridays practice. "We didnt have him do every rep, but enough where he would feel confident and we would feel confident," Frazier said. "So it was encouraging with some of the things he was able to do." Peterson trails Philadelphias LeSean McCoy by 122 rushing with two games left and said he still feels the rushing title is within his grasp. "Yeah, its not over 200 yards, so its still in play," Peterson said, saying earlier: "I look at it, any competitor would want to be at the top of the game. I play this game to be the best. So with that, leading the league goes along." Minnesota should also have Petersons backup, Toby Gerhart, in the lineup after he missed last week with a hamstring injury. Hes listed as probable. The Vikings said rookie cornerback Xavier Rhodes will be out Sunday because of a sprained ankle. Tight end John Carlson is doubtful after having a relapse of concussion symptoms on Thursday.

Moments after his Brooklyn Nets teammates ran out onto the court to congratulate him following their 100-98 overtime win over the Phoenix Suns on Friday night, Johnson could only shake his head at scoring only 13 points on 6-of-19 shooting.(SportsNetwork.com) - The New York Rangers earned a lopsided victory the last time out and they hope to build off that triumph when they visit the lowly Edmonton Oilers in Sundays battle at Rexall Place. New York began a four-game road trip with Saturdays 5-1 rout of the Vancouver Canucks. The win pushed Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault to 3-0 against the Canucks since they fired him following the 2012-13 season and the Blueshirts have outscored Vancouver by a combined 13-4 margin in those three encounters. Mats Zuccarello scored a pair of goals as New York used a three-goal first- period to jump all over the Canucks at Rogers Arena. J.T. Miller, Marc Staal and Ryan McDonagh also lit the lamp for the Rangers. Derick Brassard and Rick Nash each added a pair of assists, while Henrik Lundqvist turned in a 29-save effort for the win. You can tell that we had the jump tonight, said Lundqvist. Thats the way we have to play. Saturdays blowout victory was the second straight win for the Rangers, who have only won three in a row once this season. New York went 3-0 from Oct. 16-21 and the clubs current two-game streak marks only the second time the Blueshirts have recorded consecutive victories since that season-high winning streak. Backup Cam Talbot is expected to spell Lundqvist in net tonight. Talbot is 1-1-0 with a 1.01 goals against average in two career outings against Edmonton. While the defending Eastern Conference champions are aiming to match their longest winning streak of the season tonight, the Oilers are simply looking for something positive to shake them out of a terrible funk. Edmonton is last in the NHL with 19 points and has suffered defeats in 14 of its last 15 trips to the ice. Carolina also has 19 points on the season, but is one place ahead of the Oilers in the league standings due to having played one less game. The Oilers havee lost three in a row -- all in regulation -- and were handed a 4-2 setback by visiting Anaheim on Friday night in the finale of a home-and- home series. Custom Pittsburgh Penguins Jerseys. Edmonton lost a 2-1 road decision to the Ducks on Wednesday. With actual wins hard to come by, the perpetually rebuilding Oilers at least achieved minor victories by making competitive games of both contests against the NHL-leading Ducks. Edmonton was down 3-0 at one point on Friday before rallying to make it a one-goal game. Kyle Palmieri and Ryan Getzlaf scored in a 44-second span in the opening minute of the second period to hand the Ducks their 3-0 cushion. However, the Oilers received a goal late in the second from Tyler Pitlick before Jeff Petrys power-play tally made it a 3-2 contest at 12:40 of the third. The Oilers outshot Anaheim 11-4 in the third period, but Nate Thompson would eventually seal the win for the Ducks with his empty-net tally in the final minute. I feel like Ive said this eight times this year. A couple bad shifts killed us. They had two Grade A chances at the start of the second, lamented Oilers forward Taylor Hall, who posted an assist in the setback. Viktor Fasth suffered both losses against the Ducks, his former team. Fasth was pulled 21 minutes into his start on Friday after giving up three goals on 12 shots. Ben Scrivens stopped all seven shots he faced in relief. Scrivens will get the start in net tonight. He is 2-1-0 with a 2.00 GAA in three career games against the Rangers. The Oilers have won three of the last four meetings against the Rangers and notched a 3-1 victory when the clubs meet in the Big Apple on Nov. 9. Fasth stopped 20-of-21 shots in that contest, while Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and former Ranger Benoit Pouliot each posted a goal and an assist for Edmonton. New York has won two of the past three encounters at Rexall Place. ' ' '
