In Edmonton, Alberta, Connor McDavid and Zack Kassian scored short-handed goals to help the Edmonton Oilers beat the San Jose Sharks, leveling their first-round series at one game apiece. "When you threw the numbers at the group two years ago when we started, Edmonton had a reputation of playing real fast, get on offence and see what happens". We didn't in the second game.
The Oilers, though, regrouped in the second period when they outshot the Sharks 12-4 and slowly gained some momentum. Thornton missed the past two weeks after injuring his knee in a regular-season game at Vancouver. Cam Talbot recorded his second straight shutout with 23 saves.
What does it mean for San Jose if Edmonton stops taking dumb penalties? He notched a helper on Oscar Klefbom's first-period tally. "Just not much either way and so we just got in there inside and made a few plays tonight".
The Sharks were held to 10 shots over the final two periods and didn't even get a shot on goal on a pair of power-play chances as Thornton's return was unable to change San Jose's fortunes. He has no goals and no assists to show for the first four games.
The Sharks established a new franchise mark with the seven-goal differential. "It's a matter of putting the puck in the back of the net now for us, and continuing to do those things on both sides of the puck".
"We're disappointed with the way it went", Sharks forward Joe Pavelski said.

The bank remains under investigation in several states, as well as by the Securities and Exchange Commission, for its practices. Plath applauded the board for publishing its full investigation and the independent manner in which it was conducted.
Coming into Game 1 from Rogers Place Wednesday, Eberle had accumulated 165 goals and 382 points in 507 regular season games.
"We've got a big orange sign, we've got flags, we've got insane hair, and so far we've gotten four-and-a-half honks, and we've gotten a few of those gestures that sometimes you get in traffic if you don't behave", said Scheetz. Logan Couture added two goals while defenseman Brent Burns chipped in with his first points of the series with three assists.
Sharks coach Pete DeBoer juggled his lines for the game, moving Marleau to the top line with Pavelski and Joe Thornton. For San Jose, at least - the Oilers got trampled under the hooves.
SAN JOSE The San Jose Sharks' offense continued to sputter Sunday in Game 3 of their first round playoff series against the Edmonton Oilers.
Already, Talbot, said, he had put the game out of his mind. Leon Draisaitl took a stick to Chris Tierney's unmentionables and received a five minute major and a game misconduct as a present to newly installed backup netminder Laurent Brossoit, who promptly allowed another masterful tip in goal by Captain America, Joe Pavelski, to keep the route on and move the score to 6-0. The Sharks have averaged 27.7 shots per game over their first three games of the series, fourth-lowest in the playoffs.
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. We know that. Obviously that's been a concern for us all season. "I don't know if there was really any time to let frustration settle in", said Pavelski.
