Sharks beat Oilers 3-2 in overtime in Game 1

A thousand more jammed into a beer garden in the entrance hall and watched their first-round game with San Jose on television. The clamour started before the puck dropped and rose to ear-splitting over three hours.

"We got so close", said Elaine Nacht of Campbell.

"It's going to be a nightmare, I really truly believe", fan Cheryl Stewart said.

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

Sharks' captain Joe Pavelski singled out that goal to reporters after the game, saying that it calmed the team. Only 41 saves by Cam Talbot kept Edmonton from receiving a major thumping.

Or at least they can dry their tears with a pile of cash.

The first period of the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs couldn't have gone better for the Edmonton Oilers. Their penalty killers got exhausted. It wasn't the start the Sharks were looking for against the skilled upstart Edmonton Oilers, a franchise that hadn't seen the playoffs in over a decade.

Brent Burns - The San Jose defenceman was a one-man gang on Wednesday, playing nearly 28 minutes and taking 18 shot attempts.

A big reason why the Sharks were able to shut down the Oilers so effectively was that despite having home ice advantage, Todd McLellan was taken to school in the matchup battle. The Sharks came back and tied the game with just more than 15 minutes left in regulation. Hopefully for their sake, they've learned this lesson.

"We gained some momentum".

Is there a more intriguing first-round playoff series in the National Hockey League this year than Edmonton vs. San Jose? Or, it could be a momentary slip caused by the emotion of the moment.

If they can, the Sharks could very well find themselves in the driver's seat as this series shifts back to Edmonton.

Putin said Wednesday that U.S. -Russia relations have "degraded" since President Trump took office. And he suggested that possible war crimes charges could be levied against the Syrian leader.

Joel Ward and Paul Martin scored for San Jose. By comparison, the Oilers have only a fraction. "They've made it a pretty special place to play a playoff game in for either team".

The 46 victories this season was their most since 1986-87. This way, they avoid turnovers and also put on more pressure.

"Especially on the power play, (I) threw some pucks away and lost some pucks that normally I make better plays on", said Couture.

"Other than that, you've just got to play those guys hard". Jari Kurri and Wayne Gretzky scored those goals. They were almost 12 per cent below the league average in the percentage of loose pucks recovered in their defensive zone, a brutal performance. "Hopefully, we will be better at channelling our emotions. We expect it and we'll deal with it like we always have". "All good players that's kind of the recipe for success", Braun said.

The Sharks at 9-5 all-time when splitting the first two games of a playoff series. Yes, a Carolina/Edmonton Cup Final once happened.

"Now we know that when we get a lead we can lock it down and we know what it takes to play that way", said Talbot, who was named second star behind Kassian, who was a one-man wrecking crew in this one. The Oilers ranked eighth in GAA (2.5 gpg) and 17 on the penalty kill (80.7 percent).
