Edmonton wasn't too bad themselves at plus-21, but San Jose was the only team to come close, let alone surpass, a 40-penalty swing.

    In Cespedes and Bruce, the team has two of them-a duo that will be very hard to handle for opposing pitchers all year long. Cespedes became the only player in Mets history to have two three-home run games, having already accomplished the feat in 2015 at Coors Field in Denver.

    McIlroy, 27, carded an improved final-round 69 to finish six shots adrift of victor Sergio Garcia on 3-under, but was left to rue an unusual errant driving display.

I've pretty much not been there this season but I've watched the games and even the ones we've lost we've been the better team.

The Oilers were red hot, winning 12 of their last 14, while San Jose had dropped nine of 13. The Edmonton Oilers know the secret to beating the San Jose Sharks on the ice is to start by finding a way to get off the ice.
