VAIL, Colo. Marcus Williams Saints Jersey . -- Lindsey Vonn is delaying further surgery on her right knee for as long as possible in hopes of skiing at the Sochi Olympics. Vonn partially tore one of her reconstructed knee ligaments during a crash in training two weeks ago at Copper Mountain. She is seeing if she can ski without another operation because that would all but end any chance of defending her Olympic downhill title in February. Vonn says she likely would be proceeding in the same way even if this werent an Olympic season. "I probably wouldve done what Im doing right now, test it out," Vonn said after a training session at Vail on Sunday. "If I felt like it was possible to keep skiing, I probably wouldve. Either way, at the end of the season, I have to reconstruct the ACL. "So its kind of like, might as well see how long it holds up. Not a lot of options. In the end, surgery is going to have to happen." On a chilly morning, Vonn took two warmup runs followed by three aggressive passes through the super-G course in her race suit, hugging the corners tight and looking quite fast. Afterward, she said her surgically repaired knee felt "really good." So much so that Vonn will travel to Lake Louise, Alberta, this week for downhill training on a course she usually dominates. If training goes well, she will race for the first time since tearing ligaments in her right knee during a high-speed accident at the world championships in February. "Just trying to ski solid," she said. "Im not trying to do race runs. Im trying to build into it. Not push it too hard. But I was still be able to be aggressive and confident in what Im doing so that when I get up to Lake Louise I can hopefully have a good feeling right away." As she rehabbed the knee over the off-season, Vonn was anticipating a return for the nearby Beaver Creek races this weekend. She was on pace, too, before her wipeout at the speed centre in Copper Mountain in which she partially tore her ACL. Vonn said its been difficult to watch Lara Gut of Switzerland win the downhill and super-G races on a new course Vonn was very much look forward to trying out before the 2015 world championships. "Frustrating to miss the race," Vonn said. "Definitely with this current situation, there was no way I couldve skied that bumpy, steep course. I know it was the right decision. That gives me a peace of mind. Im trying to look forward to Lake Louise and cheer for my team." Asked if she planned to attend the giant slalom race on Sunday, Vonn said, "Oh, no. "My family is leaving so Im spending a couple of extra hours with my family. Then, Im going to pack up and get ready for Lake Louise." Vonn needs three wins to match Austrian great Annemarie Moser-Proells record of 62 victories in World Cup races.

Sections of the British media reported Friday that Brooklyn Beckham, the son of United great David, was invited to a training session at the club on Thursday.EDMONTON -- Vladimir Tarasenko had a goal and an assist as the St. Louis Blues won their season-high sixth game in a row, 5-2 over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday. Chris Stewart, Maxim Lapierre, David Backes and Patrick Berglund also scored for the Blues (30-7-5) who have gone 11-1-2 in their last 14 games to move two points back of the Central Division-leading Chicago Blackhawks. Nail Yakupov and Mark Arcobello replied for the Oilers (14-27-5) who have lost five of their last six games and 11 of 14. St. Louis controlled the pace in the early stages of the game, out-shooting Edmonton 9-1 through the first eight minutes with Oilers starter Ilya Bryzgalov forced to make a number of big saves. Edmonton had the best scoring chance of the opening half of the first period, however, as Jordan Eberle picked up a rebound in the blue paint before goalie Brian Elliott dove across to make a pad save. The Blues took a 1-0 lead with just over seven minutes to play in the first as Stewart teed up a blast from the point on the power play that cleanly beat Bryzgalov for his 14th goal of the season. Edmonton had a great chance to pull even to start the second as Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had a clean short-handed breakaway, but Elliott was able to make a big glove save on his backhand shot. The Oilers took advantage of another giveaway at the St. Louis blueline a minute-and-a-half into the second period, however, as David Perron sent Yakupov streaking up the wing and he put a wrist shot past Elliott. The Blues responded just 42 seconds later, though, as Lapierre pushed rookie Brad Hunt off the puck along the boards and calmly took the puck to the net and hooked a shot past Bryzgalov. It was difficult to tell how the goal actually went in, but the refs checked for a hole in the net and the goal counted. Lapierre was playing in his 500th career NHL game. Edmonton kept pace with a goal five minutees into the middle frame to make it 2-2. Alvin Kamara Youth Jersey. Luke Gazdic sent a pass from behind the net and Arcobello was able to chip it up and over Elliott and into the St. Louis net. St. Louis regained the lead with nine minutes left to play in the second as the Blues power play unit kept the Oilers hemmed in their own zone for a minute-and-a-half before Backes finally picked the top corner for his 17th of the season. The Blues made it 4-2 with six minutes left in the second as a face-off win allowed Tarasenko to score on a quick shot from the top of the circle. Blues forward T.J. Oshie had to be helped off the ice late in the third period after a knee-on-knee collision with Taylor Hall. Berglund iced the game with an empty-net goal in the final minute. The Blues play the second game of a three-game Western Canadian trip on Thursday in Calgary. The Oilers next play host to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday.

They had also won three in a row and six of their last eight in Edmontona The disparity between the two teams was well illustrated as the final Olympic teams were announced on Tuesday.
