This eventually led to Marcus Sorensen netting his first career playoff goal as he picked up a Brendan Dillon rebound and sent it home. 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. In the playoffs, they have combined for one assist. There is no time for panic or doubt to start creeping in. Neither team's big offensive producers have made a splash in the series so far.

The Sharks were 0 for 6 with the man advantage and are 1 for 12 through the first two games.

San Jose needed overtime to win Game 1, and DeBoer said neither team will advance to the second round quickly.

The San Jose Sharks look for a critical road victory to have a chance to close things out in game six on Saturday. Edmonton's record in Game 4 in these situations is 13-5 while San Jose's record in Game 4 when trailing 2-1 is 8-5.

From top to bottom Edmonton showed why they can be a risky team on Sunday. Joe Pavelski bounced a deflected puck past Cam Talbot, opening the floodgates in drought-stricken California and bringing a sellout crowd of towel-waving maniacs to their feet.

Momentum can be a nebulous term in sports, and especially the National Hockey League playoffs. We feel like we have to score more than one (goal) to win especially tonight.

"We're not playing against a team that has just appeared in the playoffs".

Oilers coach Todd McLellan said he later talked to Klefbom and the defenseman told him he was OK. "You're seeing a bit of rust, but he's getting better every night".

On the ice the Oilers have executed well, and their coach has done the same behind the bench. Draisaitl was moved off McDavid's line in game three on Sunday to centre Zack Kassian and Drake Cagguila.

The Freedom Movement says the marches and protests against President Jacob Zuma are not in vain and it will step up the pressure. This is our country. "This is us saying, we are better if we stand together", Maimane said.

McLellan said the shake-up did not in any way reflect on Draisiatl's performance.

Thornton's return came exactly two weeks after he was hurt April 2 against Vancouver in a collision with center Michael Chaput. "We'll keep trying, keep looking and keep fighting", Pavelski said.

The Oilers, though, regrouped in the second period when they outshot the Sharks 12-4 and slowly gained some momentum. Making their first playoff appearance in a decade, the Oilers have 20-year-old Art Ross Trophy victor Connor McDavid. "I felt this was my best game of the series".

After enduring multiple long stretches without recording a shot on goal in games two and three the Sharks clearly game planned to avoid repeating this particular mistake.

The Sharks have done a good job containing the Edmonton captain at even strength, but lose containment on him when otherwise occupied in special teams situations.

Kris Russell and Matt Benning also signed as free agents, but it was the trade for Larsson that got the most attention from critics who thought the Oilers gave up too much for too little.

Edmonton is not a flawless team by any means. The Edmonton Oilers should be disqualified from the rest of the postseason because their fans did the wave tonight.

For over a decade the Sharks have been at worst a contender and more often a Western Conference powerhouse, finally reaching the Stanley Cup Final last spring.
