Pittsburgh, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Playing the second of three straight games on the road, the 17th-ranked Virginia Commonwealth Rams clash with the Duquesne Dukes at CONSOL Energy Center in Atlantic 10 Conference action on Saturday afternoon. Along with Dayton, the Rams have yet to be defeated by an A-10 opponent through four games and have matched the Flyers in overall wins in the league with 14. Since losing to in-state rival Virginia, one of only two teams still undefeated at the Division I level, the other being top-ranked Kentucky, the Rams have rattled off nine consecutive victories. The majority of the wins during the current streak for VCU have come by double figures, but that isnt how the meeting with Rhode Island could be described four days ago when VCU captured a 65-60 win against the other Rams in the A-10. The Dukes, who typically play home games at the Palumbo Center, have a total of just six wins in 15 opportunities this season and the first two triumphs came against Bluefield State and Abilene Christian, another being logged versus UMass-Lowell. Clearly this is a Duquesne program that has taken a few steps backwards as it tries to bounce back from a 78-69 loss at Saint Louis three days ago. VCU won the previous two meetings between the programs, the latest being an 80-65 victory at home last season. The teams played in this facility around this time in 2013, with the Rams picking up a comfortable 90-63 win. The trip to Rhode Island was anything but routine for VCU as the visitors fell behind by nine points in the first half and had to scramble after the break to pull out the narrow win. Virginia Commonwealth shot a woeful 9-of-21 at the free-throw line, 8-of-24 behind the 3-point line and lost the battle on the boards, 44-32, yet still found a way to come out on top. Treveon Graham carried the load with a game-high 26 points, converting 4-of-8 shots out on the perimeter and 10-of-17 from the floor overall, in addition to adding eight rebounds, while Mo Alie-Cox responded with 10 points and Melvin Johnson nine, the latter hitting just 3-of-12 from the floor. Graham is scoring 16.5 ppg to lead the Rams, hitting an impressive 45.1 percent of his 3-point tries while also clearing out some space in the paint in order to capture a team-best 6.8 rpg as well. Johnson, who has a team-high 42 triples, adds another 14.2 ppg to the attack and even though the scoring drops off considerably after that, VCU is still coming up with an impressive 76.8 ppg. Duquesne led by as many as seven points in the first half against Saint Louis in the latest outing, but based on the fact that the Dukes made good on a horrendous 13-of-34 at the free-throw line, the visitors didnt deserve to even be in the same neighborhood with the Billikens. Micah Mason was the only player to score in double figures for Duquesne with 12 points, while Dominique McKoy came within a point of a double-double as he tallied a game-high 12 rebounds. The leading scorer for the Dukes in two straight outings and five of the last seven, Mason is one of two putting up double digits on a consistent basis for the program with 10.7 ppg, thanks to his 41.8 percent shooting behind the 3- point line. Just ahead of him on the list is Derrick Colter with 12.4 ppg as he too exceeds expectations beyond the arc with 53.5 percent accuracy.

The surprising Flames own a one-point lead over the Los Angeles Kings for the second wild card position in the Western Conference and are just two points back of the third-place Vancouver Canucks in the Pacific Division. Calgary has not made the playoffs since 2009. The Flames were hoping to carry a nice-sized winning streak into the All-Star break, but instead had a four-game run halted with a 6-3 road loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday despite forward Sean Monahan scoring for a fourth game in a row. Joe Colborne and Mikael Backlund also lit the lamp, but Joni Ortios fifth straight start ended less than 10 minutes into the second frame as he allowed four goals on 11 shots. Jonas Hiller made 13 saves on 14 shots faced in relief. We were just not getting the breaks today, Ortio said. We had some good chances, an open net and it just wasnt going our way tonight. Ortio had gotten the call in each game since getting recalled from the minors when Karri Ramo sustained an upper-body injury. However, Ortio was assigned to back to the American Hockey League before the break and Hiller will start tonight. Hiller has not started a game since giving up six goals on 35 shots in a loss to Florida on Jan. 9. He is 3-2-0 lifetime versus the Sabres with a 3.02 goals against average and .888 save percentage. The Sabres resume a string of five straight on the road having lost a club- record 11 straight games in regulation. They are 1-14-1 in their past 16 games and last in the NHL with 31 points. Buffalo appeared in position to snap its skid on Jan. 18 in its final game before the break, taking a three-goal lead over Detroitt in the first period.dddddddddddd However, the Red Wings netted the next five goals and ended up winning a 6-4 decision. Tyler Ennis notched two goals and an assist in defeat, while Chris Stewart and Drew Stafford also scored. Jhonas Enroth yielded all six goals on 26 shots faced. That first period, we were proactive. We went on the attack, Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers told his teams website. We kind of had a no respect look to our team that we hadnt had in a while and come in the second, it seemed like we gave them too much respect after that. Defenseman Nikita Zadorov had two assists versus the Red Wings, but is not expected play tonight as the Sabres suspended him for his failure to report to the team on time following the All-Star break. Sabres general manager Tim Murray said that he expects the 19-year-old Zadorov, who missed Mondays practice, to join the club during its upcoming road trip through western Canada. Buffalo will visit Edmonton and Vancouver following this game before wrapping this trip in Montreal. The Sabres also are without goaltender Michal Neuvirth, who sustained a lower- body injury while working out during the break, but captain Brian Gionta is expected to be in action tonight after missing the previous 13 games with an upper-body ailment. Matt Hackett, meanwhile, was recalled from the minors to back up Enroth, who is 2-0-1 with a 1.99 GAA and .941 save percentage in three career encounters with the Flames. Enroth made 42 saves in a 4-3 victory at home over the Flames on Dec. 11, with Matt Moulson scoring twice and Ennis recording three assists. Monahan had a goal for the Flames and Ramo made 15 saves in defeat. Calgary has won four straight at home in this series, with Buffalo not picking up a road win over the Flames since Oct. 18, 2003.
