Predators-Blues, Oilers-Ducks open second round Wednesday

The runner-up for the biggest upset in the first series would go to the St. Louis Blues.

Late on Saturday, the Edmonton Oilers also captured a 4-2 series victory Saturday in another Pacific Division showdown against the San Jose Sharks, riding an early two-goal burst to a 3-1 victory. The Oilers' Zack Kassian had game-winning goals in Games 2 and 3 - both shutouts - and Klefbom is tied with the fourth-liner for the team lead in goals in the series with two. What's become painfully clear is the Sharks can win scores of regular-season games as the most successful team over the last decade, but don't have the right mix in the playoffs.

"You know, there's only eight teams left and we're one of them".

"We've just got to take our game to a new level, I think that's definitely going to be the main focus", said Nurse. We will talk about starting and the things that we need to do well.

Veteran Patrick Marleau scored the lone goal for San Jose with 7:48 left in the game while Oilers star Connor McDavid hit the empty net with less than a second remaining. San Jose, which made its first Stanley Cup Final appearance past year, is on the verge of being eliminated in the first round for the fourth time in nine postseasons.

Thornton spoke to the media before DeBoer revealed the severity of the injury, and Thornton downplayed the problem, calling it "the normal stuff that hockey players deal with". He recorded two assists in the series. Even if the Sharks can win a Cup next year with help from Lady Luck, are they better off playing for the future given the relative strength of next year's draft class? He took a pass from Adam Larsson and sped in on a breakaway, beating Martin Jones five hole.

"He was pretty tight on me", Draisaitl said of Braun, who was draped over him when the two reached the net. But right now I haven't been a dad for a long time.

San Jose Sharks forward Joe Thornton underwent successful knee surgery, the team announced Tuesday afternoon.

"There are just a couple key moments in the series", Pavelski said. My gut tells me this is just the tip of the iceberg for this group.

"We played every kind of game in that series", said Talbot.

Edmonton outshot San Jose 9-6 in the first period, with several close chances. But his players did not sound totally convinced. "I'm the guy that's supposed to produce and do that", he said. In addition to enjoying the game, I received a lesson in civility that has convinced me that we as a community could do so much better than we now are at enjoying, cultivating and teaching civility. The Oilers frantically tried to hold on after building the 2-0 lead and had to survive a tense power play after a penalty for too many men on the ice that included Joe Pavelski hitting both the cross bar and post on a shot that almost tied the game.
