San Jose Sharks break out in 7-0 rout of Edmonton Oilers

San Jose Sharks break out in 7-0 rout of Edmonton Oilers

Game 5 will be played Thursday night in Edmonton, with the sixth game Saturday night in San Jose. The Sharks seemed to frustrate Connor McDavid, who's now suffering from an extremely rare two-game pointless streak.

After head coach Todd McLellan preached and preached about the modus operandi of the team he used to coach of jumping all over you the first 10 minutes, the Oilers allowed the winning goal 15 seconds into the game and were down 2-0 by 11:02. The Sharks utterly outplayed Edmonton in Game 1 at Rogers Place, but a amusing thing happened between that dismal effort last Wednesday and Game 2 on Friday - the Oilers regrouped, like winning teams do.

"At the end of the day, it was about them being more hungry to get back in the series and us not responding in the right way", Milan Lucic, the Oilers' veteran forward, said. Four of San Jose's seven goals happened with a man advantage, including the most important score of the night.

"They have lived through these type of games and know where to take it", McLellan said. "The good news is that the series is tied". "We have to score to win, so offensively that's what we've got to concentrate on". Yes, Edmonton has the future of hockey Connor McDavid on their side, and a vastly improved defense as well, but the paint has just barely dried on the Oilers' full rebuild and the team is so devoid of playoff experience that it's nearly laughable.

Thornton played with the jump he showed in the first period Sunday throughout his 14:43 of ice time. The Oilers had beaten them four times in the last five games entering Tuesday night. But after that, it was the Oilers, who outshot San Jose 12-4 in the middle period, applying the pressure. Edmonton didn't have a real aggressive attack in Game 3 either, amassing just 22 shots. Thornton missed the past two weeks after injuring his knee in a regular-season game at Vancouver.

Among the undisciplined play was Leon Draisaitl's spear on Chris Tierny, which gave the Sharks a five-minute power play already up 5-0 in the second period.

The floodgates opened from there, thanks in large part to the power play. Whether DeBoer makes any changes remains to be seen - I think he'll play his cards pretty close to the vest.

"It's already forgotten in my mind", Talbot said.

Logan Couture and Joe Pavelski each scored twice, while Joe Thornton, back for his second game of the series, added his first assist. Schlemko's blast from the blueline bounded off Talbot's pads and rookie Marcus Sorensen was ready at the edge of the crease for the put-back goal, his first-ever playoff point at 9:46.

In a series with some real offensive firepower, it's quite something that this series between the Sharks and Oilers has been the lowest-scoring of the first round. The Sharks are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 16.7 percent of their power play opportunities.

Thornton returned to play on the top power play unit, but the Sharks' problems persisted as they wee unable to set up in the Oilers' zone for any significant amount of time. "It's simple to say, it's easy to say, but we've got to be better". Draisaitl was moved off McDavid's line in game three on Sunday to centre Zack Kassian and Drake Cagguila.
