Sharks hammer Oilers 7-0, tie series at two wins each

Share

The Sharks, who haven't scored since Melker Karlsson's overtime victor in Game 1, managed only one shot in the final 1:47 with Jones pulled for an extra attacker. The Sharks are 15-7 in the last 22 meetings in Edmonton and 2-5 in the last 7 meetings.

Edmonton weathered a spirited start by the Sharks fueled in part by the return of Joe Thornton from a knee injury, then the Oilers took control and capitalized on a costly turnover to take the lead.

"That was something we wanted to do", Couture said. The Sharks seemed to frustrate Connor McDavid, who's now suffering from an extremely rare two-game pointless streak. "To get it early tonight and get that feeling was critical". "It's a one-off. We take the game tape and throw it away".

They got more, alright. Logan Couture, who had been centering the Sharks' top line with Pavelski and Karlsson, centered the second line with Patrick Marleau and Joel Ward. Previously, the Sharks had never won a playoff game by more than five goals.

David Schlemko's power play goal at 6:45 of the third period capped the scoring.

With lingering questions piling up about the teams poor performance, the Sharks took the ice at SAP Center and put on an "all-time" level performance and beat the previously surging Oilers to a pulp.

The Oilers showed their frustration at the 13:44 mark of the second period.

The Sharks should be fortunate that they left Edmonton with a split. Instead, Sharks continued to dictate.

Talbot departed at that point, but Pavelski's power play goal at 16:46 on Laurent Broissoit - on another patented deflection by the captain - upped the lead to 6-0 at the second intermission.

"We have confidence", Thornton said of the San Jose power play showing.

Macron's lead in French election polls shrinks
Far-right leader Marine Le Pen came in fourth behind conservative Francois Fillon, with 11 % and 15 % respectively. Her main rival now is Macron, a former economy minister, who pledges to modernise the French economy.

"We're not playing against a team that has just appeared in the playoffs". We know that. Obviously that's been a concern for us all season. I don't want our players to necessarily forget about it tonight.

"We came in here, we established home ice and now it's best of three", Talbot told the Edmonton Sun.

The Sharks' power play and its top offensive threats, after being all but silenced for the first three games of the series, led the way. Despite getting whacked by a high stick and requiring a between-periods visit to the dentist to get his teeth numbed, he was a force. "I've had some time to let it go already". Unless the Hawks can stop the Preds and find a way through the best D in the National Hockey League, this one ends tonight.

His teammates, of course, can say the same as a collective group.

The Sharks have been outscored 21-11 while going 1-5 in their last six playoff games with the Oilers. "It doesn't matter if it's 1-0 or 7-0, the series is 2-2 and now we're heading home to play in front of our fans". "It was nice to score some goals". "You have to try and find one or two early and hopefully you can build on that and get a little momentum going that way".
