With just one week until Judgement Night, players are battling against elimination when the Premier League heads to Liverpool. Robert Thornton needs a win from one of his two games to keep alive his survival hopes, while Michael Smith and Dave Chisnall are also scrapping for their places this Thursday night, live on Sky Sports.The battle for top spot is also intensifying, with Phil Taylor, Gary Anderson and James Wade pursuing leader Michael van Gerwen, but who is Wayne picking as his winners and losers? Price Boost Smith, Anderson & Lewis all to win now 13/2 from 11/2 Michael Smith v Robert Thornton Robert Thornton is still searching for his first win of the campaign Robert Thornton was good last week, he played better. I had the pleasure of spending my whole Sunday with Robert as we were doing an exhibition together in Irvine. He said hes feeling so much better than he has done throughout the whole of the Premier League. Hes using new darts and has a new lease of life.I actually think hell do a job on Michael Smith, who missed last week and is coming back. You kind of feel like youre out of it again. You never have any rhythm when that happens.I just think that Robert right now has got more confidence than hes had since the start. That can only be positive.Prediction: Robert can claim his first win with an improved performance. (Thornton 2/1 with Sky Bet to win)Gary Anderson v Dave Chisnall Gary Anderson picked up two victories on night seven in Glasgow Gary was brilliant last week, I thought he was sensational. Weve alluded to it so often about the pressure that hes under when he plays in Scotland. Weve played in Aberdeen and Glasgow and Anderson has not let them down once. Hes averaged over a ton in every game, won six points out of six in Scotland. Hes looking good and hes only a point off top. I think the way that Gary is carrying on, hell march into the play-offs. Lessons from a champion Gary Anderson has high hopes for protege Michael Smith Chizzy on the other hand, he plays well and gets beat, he plays poor and gets beat. He needs to find a point at least, just to stop the rot. Dave hasnt won since the very first week. Against Gary, hes only going to get a point at best, but Im going for an Anderson win.Prediction: Gary will take victory in a close game. (Anderson 7/1 with Sky Bet to win 7-5)Adrian Lewis v Raymond van Barneveld Adrian Lewis produced lacklustre display in last weeks defeat to Gary Anderson I reckon these two are so unpredictable, that they literally get out of the bed on different sides every morning. They are lunatics, the pair of them. All joking aside, I do fancy Adrian Lewis for this match. He is really hungry to get in the play-offs, because it has only happened twice in eight attempts, and thats just poor. Hes had four wins so far and there is no reason why he cant have another.Barneys brilliance of last week doesnt mean hes going to be anything like the same this week. Adrian was poor last week. Do I think he will be poor again? No, but he could be! His good performances have come off a bad one and I think this could be the same.Prediction: Lewis will edge Barney in a last-leg thriller. (Lewis 15/2 with Sky Bet to win 7-5)Phil Taylor v Peter Wright Phil Taylor held Michael van Gerwen to a draw Peter Wright is playing great without winning. It doesnt make sense and it wont continue. Maybe this is the week? You cant keep averaging between 103 and 106 and not pick up points. Im bamboozled how its happened. Taylor is coming round to the fact that he has to fight to be called the worlds best player. Wayne Mardle Its going to be a real tight game this one, but I think Phil Taylor has got the bit between his teeth. Taylor is coming round to the fact that he has to fight to be called the worlds best player. I think hes ready for that tussle for the next year to 18 months. I think by just being in the play-offs for the Premier League, hell have a chance to beat Michael, but first off hes got to get into the play-offs. A win against Wright will do him a massive favour later on.Prediction: Taylor will beat Wright 7-5. (Taylor 7/1 with Sky Bet to win 7-5)Michael van Gerwen v Robert Thornton Michael van Gerwen has been performing at a high standard in recent weeks The pressure is on Robert, but after listening to him at the weekend and watching him last week, he will just play. Who expected him to beat Michael in the World Grand Prix final? No one.Look, Michael played below average last week, averaging 107, and had a 170 checkout. If hes a bit below that average of 107, I think he still wins this game quite comfortably. I just expect Michael to have too much for Robert.Prediction: Michael to complete a convincing win over Thornton. SKY BET PRICE BOOST: MVG to win, hit the highest checkout & score most 180s now 1/1 (was 8/11)!Watch all the Premier League action this Thursday night, starting at 7pm on Sky Sports 1.

"It doesnt meet the league standard as far as a late hit," Vigneault told reporters at a Wednesday morning availability in Montreal the day after the Habs 7-4 win. "It was a hit that Johnny caught him a little high in the chest, (the) player didnt see it coming. "It probably warrants the penalty that was given on the ice. Other than that, I dont see what else it could warrant, but Ive been surprised before. Well see what happens." Moore was suspended two games later on Wednesday for an illegal check to the head. Moore was given a major penalty and ejected from Tuesday nights game at Montreals Bell Centre when, at 10:41 of the third period, he nailed Weise with a blindside open-ice hit that was almost identical to Montreal forward Brandon Prusts unpenalized hit on Derek Stepan in Game 3. Prust, who had been suspended once before by the league, was subsequently given a two-game ban for the late check, which the NHL deemed as interference. Vigneault said the two cases were different. "Well, the player didnt see him coming, obviously, but the guy (Weise) was admiring his pass a little bit at the same time. Unfortunately, it was a hit and because of the force of the hit, the head seemed to snap back a litttle bit.dddddddddddd But as far as what I know about league standards and from what I heard from the Prust hit where the dynamics of the hit changed because Stepan was hurt, I dont see that at this time right now." Stepans jaw was broken by Prusts hit but the Rangers centre returned to action Tuesday after undergoing surgery, and scored two goals while wearing a chin guard. Weises helmet was knocked off after Tuesday nights hit and he was wobbly when he got up, with teammate P.K. Subban grabbing him in a bear hug for support. He left for treatment but returned to the bench late in the period. Montreal coach Michel Therrien did not take umbrage at Vigneaults assessment of the play. "What Alain is saying its normal. Hes there to protect his players with his comments, and any coach is going to say those types of things. But we all saw the hit. Its in the leagues hands and Im sure theyre going to take the good decision, so thats the way we see it." Moore plays on New Yorks third defensive pairing with Kevin Klein. Tuesdays win staved off elimination for Montreal, narrowing the Rangers lead in the series to three games to two. Game 6 is Thursday at Madison Square Garden. The series has already seen two suspensions — New Yorks Dan Carcillo was banned for 10 games for jostling a linesman in the wake of the Prust hit. Asked if Raphael Diaz would be the replacement for Moore if suspended, Vigneault replied: "Were not there yet. I dont expect anything."
