Sharks even National Hockey League at 2-2, belting Oilers 7-0

20 April 2017, 07:14 | Charlene Valdez

The game takes place in San Jose at the Sharks' SAP Center, where they lost a tough 1-0 game a few days ago. They've won by five goals three times before, including a 5-0 victory over Nashville in Game 7 of last year's Western Conference semifinals. As they say, that's why they play the games.

After preaching about taking too many penalties in Games 1 and 2, the Oilers were back at it again, this time fuelled by frustration, and allowed a Sharks power play that had scored once in the first 15 tries to score on four of seven. They started shooting like Wyatt Earp at the OK Corral and pumped 13 shots on goal in the first 10 minutes of the first period.

With that, it's a "three-game series" as the Sharks tied things up 2-2.

Though Jones has been overshadowed by Talbot, he also has been good, making saves on 72 of 77 shots (1.66 GAA, .935 save percentage) in the series.

The Oilers haven't allowed a goal since Melker Karlsson's overtime victor in game one at the 3:22 mark. We haven't been like that all year.

Dressed in orange in a sea of Sharks teal, Lane drowned her sorrows in "pity beer" purchased by a "classy" San Jose fan. "It was a one-goal game, a one-shot game". Thornton, who hadn't played since suffering a leg injury against Vancouver on April 2, came out with fresh legs and the Sharks benefitted in a fast and furious first period. Following a two-minute hooking penalty to Edmonton defenseman Kris Russell, the Sharks dictated pace and eventually netted another first period goal. He has stopped 80 of 83 shots en route to back-to-back shutouts, and assisted on McDavid's insurance goal midway through the third period on Friday.

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. "Just keep to our fundamentals and we'd be fine, and you saw that tonight". It shows you that a team can take their game to a different level. It was a one-off.


Who takes home Game 4?

The young Oilers were schooled by the old Sharks. 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.

"I think in the playoffs there are little lessons that are learned along the way", Todd McLellan, the Edmonton coach, said.

San Jose pulled Jones in favor of an extra attacker with 1 minute, 47 seconds left, but was unable to change the outcome.

"He has a lot of courage", DeBoer said of Couture's effort. "It's an intimidating building to play in and it is even more when we have a lead early".

People don't need to wonder about the San Jose Sharks' scoring ability after Tuesday. But two players who had breakout seasons - Leon Draisaitl (29 goals, 48 assists) and Patrick Maroon (27 goals) - have failed to record a point. NFL Hall of Famer Jerry Rice opened the dressing room to lead the Sharks on the ice to start the game.

At times, Larsson and Klefbom have drawn the challenge of covering San Jose captain Joe Pavelski, the Sharks' top-scoring forward in the regular season with 29 goals and 68 points. The two bottom lines were Timo Meier-Tomas Hertl-Melker Karlsson and Marcus Sorensen-Chris Tierney-Joel Ward. It didn't improve much at home in Game 3 either.
