Michael van Gerwen could end the week level on 20 points at the summit of Premier League Darts alongside Phil Taylor. Sky Live: PL Darts Everything you need to know before Bournemouth Second-placed Van Gerwen currently has 16 but two matches on Thursday, live on Sky Sports 2 HD at 7pm, means he could catch Taylor if The Power is turned off.But will he? Wayne Mardle puts his thinking cap on... Michael van Gerwen v Peter WrightLike most weeks I dont think Van Gerwen will lose - but hes having trouble winning! Hes won one of his last five. Theres no structure to whats happening, hes playing well but not winning. Remember when MVG hit a nine-darter in front of Freddie Flintoff? One of the players who has done that for the duration of the Premier League is Wright - he plays well but somehow gets beaten or he draws. I feel for him, because hes played well.But if Wright continues to change his darts with the regularity that he has done, hell find himself out of form and not know where to turn.Prediction: Lets not beat around the bush, Van Gerwen is a better player. I do think he will win. (Sky Bet Odds: MVG 1/3 to win)Raymond van Barneveld v Adrian LewisBarney doesnt always play well against Lewis. This is horses for courses, I just think Lewis to play Van Barneveld. Last weeks nine-darter from Adrian Lewis I can see Barney playing well but, now he cant qualify, he lacks that edge. Last week he played a drab affair in a way that told me hes had enough of the Premier League this season.Prediction: Adrian beats Barney quite cosily, 7-3 or 7-4. (Sky Bet Odds: Lewis 5/1 to win 7-3)Gary Anderson v James WadeYou cant afford to lose anyone below you in the league. They can go above you and drag you down. If you start losing to those below you regularly, you get dragged into the pack. Reaction from Micahel van Gerwen and Gary Anderson after their thrilling draw Andersons performance against Van Gerwen last week was a massive plus, it was nearly faultless. He hit a 119 finish under pressure, and averaged 108 to draw with Van GerwenPrediction: I like the way James is playing but I think Gary wins. James lacks the consistent ability to go 140, 140, game shot. (Sky Bet Odds: Anderson 4/7 to win)Phil Taylor v Robert ThorntonI love Robert to bits, I love that he tries 100 percent. He doesnt just play for the prize money - lets be honest, hell finish seventh or eighth but he annihilated Wright last week. Watch Phil Taylors winning leg against Barney But Taylor is showing a consistently brilliant form. He reads the game, and his opponent. He pulls out the right shot, at the right time.Prediction: Phil has got too much for Thornton - hell win 7-3. (Sky Bet Odds: Taylor 9/2 to win 7-3)Michael van Gerwen v Adrian LewisAfter last weeks nine-darter, can Adrian play that well again? It wasnt just the nine-darter, he played beautifully well. Relive some classic encounters between Michael van Gerwen and Jackpot Adrian had a dart to go 5-1 up last week but missed, and folded for 10 minutes. If he has a spell like that again Van Gerwen, he wont get away with it.Prediction: Adrian will play well but, at the moment, he isnt consistently a match for Van Gerwen. (Sky Bet Odds: MVG 8/15 to win)Watch Premier League Darts on Thursday at 7pm on Sky Sports 2 HD. Also See: Fixtures/Results On Sky TV Prem Table Darts betting Get Sky Sports Chris Neil Jersey

. They started shooting the puck. Joe Pavelski had a hat trick to move into a tie for second in the NHL in goals and the Sharks beat Philadelphia 7-3 Thursday night in the first game for both teams following the Olympic break.CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Milwaukee Brewers star Ryan Braun was put on the 15-day disabled list Saturday because of a strained oblique in his right side, the latest setback for a banged-up team thats recently struggled to score. Braun had missed the last six games with the injury. Since the outfielder hadnt played, the move was made retroactive to April 27 and he will be eligible to return on May 12. Braun also had been sidelined a few games this season by a sore right thumb. Overall, the former NL MVP is batting .318 with six homers and 18 RBIs. Milwaukee activated outfielder Logan Schafer off the disabled list before a game against the Cincinnati Reds. Hed been sidelined by a strained right hamstring. The Brewers had the best record in the majors when they made the moves. They were hopeful that Braun could be back in less than two weeks, but finally decided it was better not to rush him. "I think for a lot of reasons it makes the most sense -- for me, for the team, just looking out from a long-term perspective," Braun said. "It made more sense to try to let it get healthy instead of trying to force it and rush back. &"Were headed in the right direction.dddddddddddd If we werent headed in the right direction, we would have made the move immediately. But its definitely gotten better. The oblique is one of those trick injuries." Braun went on the disabled list for the first time in his career last season, sidelined from June 14 to July 7 with an injured right thumb. He accepted a 65-game suspension on July 22 for violations of Major League Baseballs drug agreement and labour contract. Shortstop Jean Segura and third baseman Aramis Ramirez also missed time with injuries last week. Despite the setbacks, Milwaukee took a 21-9 record into Saturday nights game. With Braun sidelined, the Brewers have been short-handed in the outfield. First baseman Mark Reynolds made his first career start in right field on Thursday night. Schafer batted .214 with two RBIs before he got hurt. Manager Ron Roenicke expects Braun to be fully recovered from the injury when hes eligible to be activated. "This way hopefully we will be assured that it will be gone when hes back," Roenicke said. "So it makes sense to do it."
