Thornton returns to lineup for Sharks in Game 3 vs. Oilers

20 April 2017, 06:36 | Charlene Valdez

Kassian, who scored seven goals in 79 regular-season games, has a series-high two.

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.

Patrick Marleau's goal came after Pavelski was stopped in the slot, again on a Sharks power play, upping the lead to 3-0 at 2:02.

Oilers fans cheering on the team during Game 3 in San Jose. "In one-goal games, it can go either way".

"I like playing on the kill, especially in these games when we keep taking a lot (of penalties)". Everyone was ready. We've been there, you know, the games have been tight, they really have.

Edmontonians are encouraged to don their orange clothes Thursday and head downtown for a noon hour rally to welcome back the Edmonton Oilers for Game 5 of the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Pavelski scored on a pair of deflections, the previously dormant power play scored four times and San Jose held Connor McDavid off the scoresheet for the second straight game.

"We got this giant Oiler cake made for him, they did a great job of it, and his receptionist said, "Oh, he's going to love this, you Canadians are so nice". That doesn't win at this time of the year and I think we're proving that".

"I don't think it has anything to do with the contact or punishment", he said. On Friday, he broke free killing a penalty midway through the third, racing down the left side to fire a low shortside wrist shot past Sharks goalie Martin Jones to seal the win.

"He dominated the game tonight", McDavid said. We haven't played like that all year.


Pavelski and Logan Couture each scored twice.

"The catch is, the Sharks have been starting their practices early".

"We've got to just get back at it", DeBoer said Saturday in a conference call. "That's an important piece, getting that momentum". Couture struggled the first two games as he's recovered after losing several teeth when he took a puck to the face last month.

Couture pocketed his second goal of the night at 12:52 when he received Jannik Hansen's feed and deftly found the top right corner of the net from the slot. He wore a cage to protect his mouth the first two games before going back to the half-visor for Game 3.

McLellan, returning to the city where he coached the Sharks for five seasons, played down any special significance the victory might have had for him.

"(Experience is) only good if you use it in the right way", Marleau said. "In fact, I whispered in his ear that it was a promotion because his responsibility level had to go way up".

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

TSN's Darren Dreger spoke with a member of the San Jose ice crew who said he routinely turns the lights on when visiting teams want to practice early.

NOTES: The Rangers beat Atlanta 7-0 on April 17, 2007. They allowed four power-play goals, and their margin of defeat was the worst in franchise history for a playoff game.

DeBoer didn't show up on the scoresheet Tuesday, but he should be credited with an assist for igniting the Sharks offense with some clever line tinkering.
