FLORHAM PARK, N. Superstar Bleu Marine Pas Cher .J. -- New York Jets defensive linemen Muhammad Wilkerson and Quinton Coples are appealing their fines by the NFL for their hits on Tennessees Jake Locker. Wilkerson was docked $15,785 for roughing the passer, while Coples was fined $7,875 for unnecessary roughness. Both were surprised at the fines, especially since no penalties were called on the field. "I was going to appeal, regardless," Wilkerson said Thursday. "It didnt matter the amount. If it was $5,000, I still wouldve appealed. I dont think it was a dirty hit. I dont think I shouldve gotten fined." Locker was hit by both Wilkerson and Coples in the third quarter of Tennessees 38-13 win Sunday after he threw a pass. Locker was carted off the field and expected to miss a few weeks with a sprained right hip and knee. Wilkerson made contact first after he took a step and smacked into Locker just after he released the football. Coples then hit into Locker low -- "just a football play," he called it -- as the quarterback fell. "The league felt like it was a personal foul or an inappropriate hit," Coples said. "But one thing about it is that its up for debate, so Im going to appeal it, and go forward from here." Titans coach Mike Munchak called both hits "unnecessary." "I thought the first one, he dropped his helmet into him and loaded onto him, which youre supposed to pull back when youre late. He didnt," Munchak said Monday. "The second one was totally unnecessary." Locker, however, said he didnt think the hits were intentional, and neither player should be fined. "I personally dont think it was a dirty hit," Wilkerson said. "He said it, so ..." Added Coples: "He felt that same way, and thats a good thing." Wilkerson insisted that being fined for the hit wont change how he approaches his style of play. "I just play hard, physical football like Im supposed to and how I was brought up and taught," Wilkerson said. "Im going to continue to do that and play ball the way I know how to play ball." Titans safety Michael Griffin said Wednesday that he was fined $21,000 by the league for his hit on Jets receiver Stephen Hill, who suffered a concussion. Griffin said he appealed the fine as soon as he received it. Hills status for New Yorks game at Atlanta on Monday night was uncertain. Superstar Femme Blanche Pas Cher . The NBA began to issue punishments last season for flopping, the art of exaggerating contact to deceive referees into calling a foul, but only retroactively. If a player is determined to have flopped after a postgame review, he is given a warning for the first offence and a $5,000 fine for the second. Adidas Zx 750 Noir Pas Cher . Rocque and her Edmonton rink stole two points in the eighth end and hit out for the win after South Korea scored a single in the ninth. "Honestly, this is unexplainable," Rocque said.EDMONTON -- The Edmonton Oilers seem to have solved their problems in net and have been getting some positive results because of it. Jordan Eberle had a pair of goals and an assist and Viktor Fasth made 28 saves as the Oilers continued to put crimps in other teams playoff plans, coming away with a 5-1 victory over the Nashville Predators on Tuesday. Sam Gagner, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Taylor Hall also scored for the Oilers (25-36-9), who have won two in a row and gone 10-4-3 in their past 17 games, and at least temporarily moved past Florida into third-last in the NHL. Much of the progress the Oilers have made of late has been since trading Devan Dubnyk and Ilya Bryzgalov away and bringing in Fasth and Ben Scrivens. "There are no soft goals with them," Hall said. "Im sure everyone around the room will tell you. You just play with more confidence. You arent afraid to make that little play that could turn into a big offensive chance when you know that you have guys like Viktor and Ben back there. It is a huge boost going into games knowing that we are going to give up chances, but we have good goalies in net." Oilers head coach Dallas Eakins said his new goaltending tandem has made an immediate impact. "Its been perfect," he said. "The great thing is I think they have become friends right away and are helping and supporting each other, which is so important. There is competition going on at the same time. The better the one plays spurs on the other and they are just going to keep pulling each other to the top. Our goaltending has just been fabulous." Gabriel Bourque replied for the Predators (29-30-10) who have lost two in a row and are in serious jeopardy of missing the playoffs for the second year in a row as they are nine points out of the last post-season berth in the West with just 13 games remaining on the schedule. "It wasnt a good effort, we didnt do too many good things out there, we turned the puck over," said Nashville assistant captain Mike Fisher. "We didnt do too many good things defensively and they buried them when they got chances. They played pretty well." Predators head coach Barry Trotz said it was not the kind of effort his team can afford to have right now. "I just thought that we didnt have enough urgency from enough guys and we need guys to step up," he said. "I thought our best players were some of our young guys. We have to give our goalie some run support, we have to be better defensively than that and our special teams have to be at least even every night." Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne allowed five goals on 26 shots and was pulled midway through the third period. "It was obviously not the best game for myself," he said. "Im disappointed for sure. Its the way it goes I guess once in a while, but its not acceptable. Its a little bit embarrassing too, but its over with now." The game started on a rough note just 48 seconds in as Predators defenceman Ryan Ellis pasted Eberle into the boards on a cross-check from behind, igniting a scrum. The Predators came close with five minutes remaining in the first period as they took a bit of a surprise shot on Oilers goalie Viktor Fasth that he got a piece of with his glove before looking like an offensive lineman and preventing Patric Hornqvist from getting to the rebound in the crease. Edmonton broke the scoreless deadloock with 35 seconds left in the opening frame as the rebound from a Martin Marincin point shot came to Gagner in the blue paint and he hooked a backhand shot past Predators goalie Pekka Rinne. Adidas Superstar Rose Pale. It was just Gagners eighth goal of the season. The Preds came close to tying the game four minutes into the second, but a Nick Spaling shot rang off the post. Edmonton made it a 2-0 game eight minutes into the second as Eberle made a long cross-ice pass through traffic on the power play to Nugent-Hopkins, who wrested a shot that went off the tip of Rinnes glove and in. It was the 16th goal of the season for Nugent-Hopkins, breaking a 15-game scoreless drought. The Oilers took a three-goal lead on a bit of an unusual play with five minutes left in the second period as Hall took a backhand golf swing of a shot that found the top corner and quickly exited the net. Play continued for 1:17 before the Oilers took a penalty and they were able to review the shot and determine it was a goal. "I thought I saw the net bulge," Hall said. "The ref was standing right there with a really good vantage point and I thought if it was in that he would have seen it. It was a weird shift keeping going after that when you think you have scored and you are just hoping for a whistle to blow to see if you have a goal or not." Nashville got on the board with 1:21 remaining in the second as Hornqvist took the puck behind the net before hooking it in front to Bourque, who sent a shot through traffic to beat Fasth. Edmonton made it 4-1 eight-and-a-half minutes into the third period with another power-play goal. Anton Lander picked up his first point of the season on a nice feed to Eberle at the side of the net as he lifted a backhand shot that ticked off of Rinne and in. Eberle scored his second goal of the game just 1:23 later, breaking into the Nashville zone with speed and scoring his 23rd of the season on a low backhand shot. "We have been trying to get some confidence in little things and tonight we started to bear down and found some ways to score, especially on the power play," Eberle said. "It definitely gives you some confidence and it was nice to get out of the hole there." Rinne was replaced by backup Carter Hutton for the remainder of the game. The Predators play the second match of their four-game road trip in Vancouver on Wednesday night. The Oilers welcome the Buffalo Sabres for the second game of their six-game homestand on Thursday.
