( - The Minnesota Wild will try to turn the tide in their rivalry with the St. Louis Blues when the Central Division foes battle Saturday night at Xcel Energy Center. Tonights tilt in St. Paul marks the first of four meetings in 2014-15 between Minnesota and St. Louis. The Wild ended a nine-game skid in this series when they posted a 4-2 home win on April 10 of last season. Minnesota had dropped four straight on home ice against the Blues before that victory. The Wild havent record consecutive wins in the series with St. Louis since taking three straight encounters over the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons. Both Minnesota and the Blues are coming off wins on Friday night. The Wild posted a 5-4 overtime victory in Dallas and St. Louis recorded an OT win of its own against visiting Edmonton. The Blues trailed the Oilers 3-2 in the third period, but Alex Pietrangelo was able to send the game to overtime by scoring with 7:35 left in regulation. Vladimir Tarasenko then tallied 4:20 into overtime to lift St. Louis to the 4-3 win, the third victory in four games for the Blues. St. Louis could not convert a power play opportunity in overtime, but it still managed to beat Edmonton for the 12th time in the last 14 meetings. Tarasenko puck-handled around Oilers defenseman Justin Schultz to create his own shooting lane, and his shot beat Ben Scrivens. It was the 13th tally of the season for Tarasenko, who is leading the Blues in both goals and points (25). I think everyone stood up before he even shot it, and I already figured it was going in, said Oshie on the winning goal. Its fun watching that kid shoot the puck. He cant do it enough. Oshie had three points, and Jake Allen won despite making only 13 saves on 16 shots. With No. 1 goaltender Brian Elliott on injured reserve with a knee injury, Allen will start again on Saturday. The 24-year-old has never faced the Wild. Minnesota won for the sixth time in eight tilts on Friday with the OT win over Dallas. It wasnt pretty, however, as the Wild coughed up an early three-goal lead before rallying for the 5-4 decision. The Wild led 3-0 after Mikael Granlunds goal at 11:47 of the second period, but Dallas scored four unanswered to take the lead. Thomas Vanek would get the equalizer for Minnesota, recording his second goal of the season with just 1:52 remaining in regulation. Marco Scandella then scored the winner 2:04 into overtime. Vanek rushed the puck in down the left wing and from the point he passed it over to the right wing for Zach Parise, who one-touched it to the low left side where Scandella tapped it in for the win. Its an awesome feeling, especially the roller coaster style of game that it was tonight, Scandella said. Nino Niederreiter also scored for the Wild and Darcy Kuemper made 41 saves in the win. Niklas Backstrom is expected to start in net tonight. The veteran owns a 6-9-1 record and 2.81 goals against average in 16 career games versus the Blues.

Johny Hendricks vs.Austin, TX ( - The Bison of Lipscomb shoot for a third straight win as they battle the ninth-ranked Texas Longhorns in non-conference play on Tuesday night. Lipscomb, a program that competes in the Atlantic Sun Conference, is a game under .500 after losing five of six during one stretch. However, the team has won back-to-back contests, the latest of which was a 68-59 final versus Austin Peay on the road over the weekend. Meanwhile, the Longhorns are one of the top teams in the nation thanks to a seven-game win streak to open up the 2014-15 campaign. However, that successful run came to an end in the first game of this month as the team folded against top-ranked Kentucky (63-51) during the Big 12/SEC Challenge in Lexington. The good news for Texas is that the team has already bounced back by destroying Texas State on Saturday in the first game of a five-game homestand, by a score of 59-27. The defensive effort marked the first time since 1948 that the Longhorns managed to hold an opponent to less than 30 points. As far as the all-time series between the teams is concerned, this is the first meeting. Against Austin Peay, Brett Wishon came off the bench to convert 7-of-12 shots from behind the 3-point line, en route to a team-best 21 points in the nine- point road victory. Also scoring in double figures for the Bison were Malcolm Smith and Josh Williams with 11 and 10 points, respectively, combining for 11 of the units 35 rebounds and six of their nine steals as well. Lipscomb made it into the win column despite turning the ball over 16 times and shootingg only 8-of-27 (.dddddddddddd296) beyond the arc. As the only player to have started all nine games for the Bison, it only makes sense that Williams is also the leading scorer with his 15.2 ppg, while his 5.8 rpg also top the charts. Malcolm Smith and Martin Smith pitch in with 12.7 and 11.9 ppg, respectively, the former also hitting the glass for more than five per game in order to keep the Bison within a rebound of opponents on the average every time out. In one of the most impressive outings in the last half-century, the Longhorns showed no mercy against their in-state rival, Texas State, as they limited the Bobcats to a mere 11 field goals on 51 attempts (.216) and watched the visitors convert only 2-of-12 tries from beyond the arc and 3-of-10 at the free-throw line. Texas also pummeled TSU on the glass, 45-21, thanks to the efforts of Connor Lammert who cleared 10 rebounds. In the scoring column, Texas was paced by Cameron Ridley who tallied 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting, followed by Javan Felix off the bench with 10 points as the team connected on 54.8 percent from the floor and survived 19 turnovers. If not for all the miscues, theres no telling how lopsided the outcome could have been. Thanks to the effort against Texas State, the Horns have lowered their points allowed on the season to just 50.9 ppg, which gives them a scoring advantage of close to 18 ppg at the moment. Among the active leading scorers for Texas are Jonathan Holmes and Myles Turner with 11.8 and 11.0 ppg, respectively, the pair also combining for more than 14 rebounds per game. ' ' '
