EDMONTON -- Laurent Brossoit made 26 saves and his fifth shutout of the playoffs as the Edmonton Oil Kings defeated the Calgary Hitmen 2-0 on Tuesday in Game 7 the Western Hockey Leagues Eastern Conference final. dr dre beats cheap . Brossoit now ranks second all-time in WHL single-season playoff shutouts. Only Dustin Slade of the 2006 Vancouver Giants has recorded more, with six shutouts en route to the championship that season. Michael St. Croix had both Oil King goals as Edmonton advanced to the WHL final to play the Portland Winterhawks for the Ed Chynoweth Cup for the second year in a row. The defending champion Oil Kings were pushed to a seven-game series in last years showdown, but held home ice advantage: something they wont possess in this years final. Chris Driedger stopped 36 shots in net for the Hitmen. Calgary nearly scored first just five minutes into the game off Jaynen Risslings slap pass down low for Jake Virtanen, who deflected it just overtop the net. St. Croix opened up scoring for the Oil Kings on the transition, finishing off a two-on-one with Stephane Legault around lone defender Rissling at 14:05 of the first period. Legault came within inches of putting Edmonton up 2-0 at 15:55 of the first, deflecting a feed from the left wing just off the post and back out into play. St. Croix doubled Edmontons lead at 4:33 of the second period. After two Calgary blocks in front, St. Croix jumped on the loose puck to whip it behind Driedger to make it 2-0 Edmonton after two periods. Edmonton was content to shut the game down for a scoreless third period to earn a berth to the finals. Neither team capitalized on the power play, with both squads earning four chances on the man advantage. Beats By Dre Sale .

DALLAS -- Veteran point guard Derek Fisher signed a contract Thursday with the struggling Dallas Mavericks, who are still playing without injured star Dirk Nowitzki and lost Jason Kidd in free agency during the off-season. The 38-year-old Fisher, who has played 16 NBA seasons with four teams, could make his Dallas debut in Saturday nights home game against Detroit. The Mavericks (7-9) have lost three games in a row and eight of 11, including a 101-78 loss Wednesday at Chicago that point guard Darren Collison missed with a sprained right middle finger. Collison was acquired from Indiana this summer. To make room for Fisher on their 15-man roster, the Mavericks waived Troy Murphy. Since signing with Dallas on Nov. 2, Murphy averaged 4.6 points and 3.5 rebounds in 14 games. Collison replaced Jason Kidd, the 39-year-old guard who was with the Mavericks the last four years and was part of their only NBA title two seasons ago. Kidd signed a free-agent deal with the Knicks last summer after initially indicating that he was staying. Nowitzki is recovering from arthroscopic surgery in his right knee, and the 11-time All-Star is still several weeks from returning to the lineup. Beats By Dre Studio. Fisher played in 1,173 career games with the Lakers, Golden State, Utah and Oklahoma City, averaging 8.6 points and 3.1 assists in regular-season games. He has also played in 229 post-season games, including last season with the Thunder, who swept the Mavericks in the first round of the playoffs and then made it to the NBA Finals. Collison has averaged 12.9 points and 6.3 assists per game with Dallas, but has been inconsistent at times. "We need help at point guard," coach Rick Carlisle said after the loss in Chicago. "We feel (Fisher) can help us. Its not a cure-all to all of our team challenges, but his expertise and experience will help." The Mavericks had the day off Thursday, but Fisher is expected to practice Friday. Fisher was drafted 24th overall in 1996 by the Lakers, and was part of five NBA championships in Los Angeles (2000-02, 2009-10). He also served as president of the NBA Players Association. ' ' '
