    EDMONTON -- The Edmonton Oilers have hired Craig Ramsay as an assistant coach. [b]Andrew Ference Jersey[/b] . The 63-year-old has over 40 years of NHL experience since being drafted by the Buffalo Sabres as a forward in 1971. After spending his entire playing career in Buffalo, Ramsay moved behind the Sabres bench. He served as an assistant with the team during the 1986-87 season and took over as interim head coach late that year. He also spent time as Buffalos assistant general manager and director of player personnel prior to his departure in 1993. The Weston, Ont., served as head coach of the Atlanta Thrashers in 2010-11. He also served as an assistant with the Philadelphia Flyers (1998-2000) and was named the teams interim head coach in February 2000, compiling a record of 16-8-1-0 while guiding the Flyers to an Atlantic Division title. He has served as an assistant or associate coach for several teams including the Ottawa Senators (1996-98), Florida Panthers (1993-95, 2011-13), Boston Bruins (2007-10) and Tampa Bay Lightning (2001-07), where he won the Stanley Cup in 2004. As a player, Ramsay accumulated 672 points (252 goals, 420 assists) and 201 penalty minutes in 1,070 games with Buffalo. He won the 1985 Selke Trophy as the leagues top defensive forward. The team also announced that after spending the past six seasons behind the Oilers bench as an assistant coach, former Oilers captain Kelly Buchberger will transition into a new role in player personnel. Also, assistant Steve Smith is considering his options for next season.

His little bloop dropped in perfectly for the Boston Red Sox. Carps pinch-hit floater dropped just beyond the glove of Baltimore third baseman Manny Machado in the eighth inning, scoring Jarrod Saltalamacchia from second with the tiebreaking run and lifting the Red Sox to a 4-3 win over the Orioles on Wednesday night. "Sometimes its all about placement," he said, breaking into a smile. "I didnt get a lot of it, but its a funny game. You can hit a ball hard, guys were hitting the balls hard, but right at people. It just takes just one little squibber, one little jam shot to seal the deal." The AL East-leading Red Sox continued their run from last to first with another final at-bat win. It was the 20th time in their 79 wins that theyve gone ahead in their final turn at the plate. Last season, the Red Sox were last in the division with 69 wins. "This is a group that knows how to play with the game situation thats in front of them," Boston manager John Farrell said. "They love to compete and love to work on any given day. I think this is the 30th time weve come from behind to win and it kind of shows the grit and character thats been with this team all year." Shane Victorino drove in a run for Boston with an RBI single after collecting a career-best seven RBIs and hitting two homers in a 13-2 win on Tuesday night. Craig Breslow (4-2) got two outs to earn the win and Koji Uehara got his 14th save with a perfect ninth for Red Sox, who won their fourth straight. Chris Davis hit his major league-leading 47th homer and added an RBI double for Baltimore, which lost for the sixth time in its last eight games. Saltalamacchia hit a two-out double high off the left-field wall against Tommy Hunter (3-3) and Stephen Drew was walked intentionally before Carps bloop fell just past the glove of Machado in short left field. The Red Sox rallied against Baltimores bullpen, tying it 3-3 on Dustin Pedroias two-run single off Darren ODay in the seventh. Jacoby Ellsbury barely beat a throw to the plate, sliding in before a sweeping tag attempt by Matt Wieters. "Its not necessarily one that got away," Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said. "They just dumped one in over there." Ellsbury left the game for a defensive replacement in the top of the eighth. During his seventh inning at-bat, he fouled a ball off his right foot. Farrell said an exam at the park was negative. "Ill be in there tomorrow," Ellsbury said. "It didnt feel good at all, but obviously it was a big part of the game. I wanted to be in sccoring position to come around and score the run. [b]Kris Russell Oilers Jersey[/b]. . It hit me on the foot. I wear a shin guard and it hit the top of the foot between the shin guard." With the Orioles leading 2-1 in the sixth, Davis belted a leadoff homer into Bostons bullpen. The Orioles had grabbed a 1-0 lead in the first on Davis RBI double into the right-field corner after Machado singled. They made it 2-0 in the third on Machados homer over the Green Monster. Baltimore starter Bud Norris held Boston to one run and four hits, striking out seven and walking four over 5 1-3 innings. He was pulled after 105 pitches. "Sometimes you look into it, sometimes you dont," he said of the number of pitches he made. "Tonight it definitely affected me." Bostons John Lackey lasted 7 1-3 innings, giving up three runs on seven hits, striking out four and walking one. The Red Sox cut it to 2-1 on Victorinos RBI single in the third, but they left the bases loaded when David Ortiz struck out swinging and Daniel Nava was called out on strikes. Ortiz, mired in a 0-for-18 slump, flew out to the left-field track twice in four at-bats. After the second one, which was caught in the corner for the final out of the fifth, he stood at first base for a while, looking toward the outfield before slowly walking to the dugout and slamming his helmet.
