Sharks beat Oilers 3-2 in overtime in Game 1

"That was the story of our power play probably tonight", Pavelski said. "We didn't outwork their penalty kill and I think that was the same 5-on-5".

"It was a good experience for everybody, but there is a bit of a lesson there".

They will be available at Game 2 on Friday at the north LRT entrance on a first-come first-serve basis, two hours before puck drop. Only 41 saves by Cam Talbot kept Edmonton from receiving a major thumping.

Pro athletes are so well trained and so elite that it is rare to see them undone by raw emotion. For a moment, at least, they seem human, after all.

If the Oilers want to leave victorious and tie this series up, they will have to put on tremendous pressure and get shots on net. "We know their game pretty well, and they know ours pretty well". There were chances for the Oilers to stretch the lead - Connor McDavid snuck behind the defense for two Grade-A chances - but in the end, it looked and felt like the Sharks were more comfortable with the amped-up intensity of the playoff environment. Unlike the team that waddled through March and raised a ton of doubt about their playoff future, San Jose got on its horse and galloped bravely, controlling the sway of the game for the final 45 minutes and not relenting until Melker Karlsson screamed down the off wing and buried an overtime victor past Cam Talbot at 3:22 of overtime. However, the Oilers' coach, Todd McLellan, has plenty of postseason experience.

Through two games in the first round, the Sharks have experienced the best of times and the worst of times. Hopefully for their sake, they've learned this lesson.

The Oilers showed no mercy in Game 2, hammering Couture repeatedly, including one where Kassian left his feet to level him. Jones won 19 of 33 games with a 2.16 GAA and.916 save percentage in his own barn during the regular season. Or, it could be a momentary slip caused by the emotion of the moment. In addition, 21-year-old German Leon Draisaitl had a breakout third season with 29 goals and 48 assists.

Heading into their series against the San Jose Sharks, the big question for the Edmonton Oilers was if they could hang with last year's Stanley Cup finalists defensively.

"The beauty of the Stanley Cup playoffs is all it takes for a team to get in and once you get in really anything can happen", said San Jose Sharks Spokesman Jim Sparaco. By comparison, the Oilers have only a fraction.

The 46 victories this season was their most since 1986-87. His seven shutouts put him right up there with the best in the National Hockey League, proving that he wasn't just making the saves he needed to, but also stealing the occasional game himself.
