Oilers hope to find more offence in Game 4

The Sharks needed only 15 seconds to get on the board for the first time since Melker Karlsson's overtime victor in Game 1 when Pavelski deflected a shot by defenceman Justin Braun past Talbot. Cam Talbot has stopped 80 of 83 shots faced in the series.

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

The loss was the worst of the season for Edmonton and couldn't have come at a worse time. "Games 1 or 2, he hadn't played in a long time, too, so he's getting more confident as the series goes on".

The previous fastest goal in a playoff game was by Dany Heatley, who scored 28 seconds into a game against the Kings on April 14, 2011. Leon Draisaitl was issued a five-minute major and game misconduct at 13:44, pitchforking Chris Tierney in the groin as the two battled in the corner.

With a new lineup, the Sharks held the possession edge with eight of their 12 forwards being above 50 percent on the shot attempts ledger. "I thought we were pretty desperate tonight and it showed up". It was a good hockey game by both teams. "It was completely one-sided".

They're right back in the series, which has turned into a best-of-three.

Sorensen was all alone at the side of the net to deposit a rebound of a shot from Schlemko at 9:46 and suddenly the Sharks had more goals in less than half of Game 4 than they had scored in the first three games combined. At this point, he is scoreless through four games. Later, Patrick Maroon cross-checked Pavelski from behind at 19:23, and Pavelski made it known to the big forward that he didn't like the risky hit.

At one point, Darnell Nurse laid out Timo Meier with a stick to his throat, but somehow escaped without a penalty.

David Schlemko added another power play marker 6:45 into the third. They were in the middle of a power play when it occurred.

Couture wasn't the only Sharks player who took a physical pounding in Game 2. The biggest change was putting two defensemen on the ice during power plays instead of incorporating a fourth forward to play opposite rear guard Brent Burns.

Numerous same fans who took in Game 3 on Sunday, and maybe some new arrivals, will be at the SAP Center, hoping for another road win and a stranglehold on the series.

The San Jose Sharks cruised to a 7-0 win Tuesday night, tying the best-of-seven series 2-2. "I just see in the lane where he shoots and I'm just trying to get the height", Pavelski said on NBC Sports California during the first intermission.

For the second consecutive game, Cam Talbot had a shutout and Zack Kassian scored the winning goal for the Oilers in the game -3.

"We've still got another level to go to next game", said Thornton, tied for fifth among active players in playoff scoring with 121 points (27 goals, 94 assists). "We have to score to win, so offensively that's what we've got to concentrate on".

"You can't say enough about him right now", Talbot said of Kassian.

"We expected a tough game and that they would respond", DeBoer said of the Oilers in Game 2.

That would perhaps allow them to generate some momentum for Game 5.

"He was great again", said McDavid after Edmonton's victory.
