Sharks' Thornton, Couture game-time decision


This is a lot of juice to lay with an Edmonton Oilers team that has had zero recent playoff success, so I'll side with the Sharks and the ehavy plus money simply based off the value.

EDMONTON, Alberta There's no question the Sharks need to pay close attention to Edmonton Oilers power forwards Milan Lucic and Patrick Maroon in this opening-round playoff series after they combined to score five goals in the last two meetings between the teams.

"We're disappointed with the way it went", Sharks captain Joe Pavelski said. After the first intermission, the Sharks outshot the Oilers 34-9 the rest of the way and won 3-2 in overtime. For the most part, however, he was held in check by the Sharks. McDavid had ended the season on a 14-game scoring streak. Doing the same against McDavid and the Oilers will be crucial. "You really have to go through it to learn it. People can say things, but until you personally go through it, in that aspect, experience does help".

"We are going to keep it and rules of the contest are you have to keep it at least a year and it had to be 75 percent teal", said Robert Beech of Los Gatos. With Brent Burns on the back end, finishing the regular season with 76 points, 29 goals and 47 assists leading all defensemen in points and goals, the 32-year-old bearded wonder will be the backbone for this Sharks team. Last season was Jones first year as a full-time starter, with that being his first year as a starter in playoff action, is another reason why Talbot can not be overlooked here. But San Jose battled back to forge a tie before Melker Karlsson scored 3:22 into overtime for the comeback victory. Thornton, who suffered a knee injury in early April against Vancouver, hopes to play through the injury as he did in the 2011 Western Conference Finals, when he had a separated shoulder.

After almost 11 years, the Stanley Cup playoffs returned to Edmonton on Wednesday night.

Oilers goaltender Cam Talbot faced few quality scoring chances en route to a shutout.

Playing their first postseason game in 11 years, the Edmonton Oilers rolled out to a two-goal, first period lead. "It was by committee and by whoever's on the ice getting the job done and if we have the puck, they don't have it".

McDavid's goal came at the 10:31 mark of the third period, as he picked up loose puck in his own end, streaked up the wall and beat Jones for his first career playoff goal. "It was just a matter of time before the puck was going to go in".

Once again, the Oilers had a one-goal lead at the second intermission. "His speed quotient with the puck on his stick is higher than anybody else's in the league".

"We have enough experience in this locker room to handle the playoffs", he said. They played in our zone. Then the Sharks went out in Game 1 and showed why it was a big deal.

Vlasic and Braun were the shutdown pair who limited chances for Toffoli, Forsberg and Tarasenko, and were out there against Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Stanley Cup Final. "(McDavid) gets his eyes up, he's going to make plays.
