This one was a reversal of Game 1, when the Oilers were outshot 44-19 en route to a 3-2 overtime loss.
Melker Karlsson scored at 3:22 of overtime and San Jose came back to beat Edmonton 3-2 in Game 1 of their first-round Western Conference series. San Jose when 0-for-16 with the man advantage during the regular season series. The Sharks outplayed the Oilers in Game 1, while the Oilers outplayed the Sharks in Game 2. Coach Peter DeBoer said that all of the players who missed the regular-season finale were dealing with day-to-day, nagging issues. Good news is the Sharks defense is deep and they have the edge in experience. "This isn't going to be a short series".
Through two games in the first round, the Sharks have experienced the best of times and the worst of times.
Down by a pair 17 minutes in on Wednesday night in Edmonton, it seemed as if San Jose was going to get swallowed up by the sea of orange sweaters that filled Rogers Arena for the building's first ever playoff game. You've got to keep getting better as the games go on.
"Now we know that once we get that lead we can lock it down, and we know what it takes to play that way", said Talbot. "We're just thinking about ourselves and how we're going to prepare for the game, so I'm not going to shorten my routine for something". Past and present history favors the Oilers and their lovable super star Connor McDavid.
How Barcelona players reacted to Real Madrid's controversial win over Bayern Munich
But in the 76th minute, Cristiano Ronaldo stretched his record of UEFA goals when he headed Madrid ahead, after a Casemiro cross. Security guards and Bayern fans got into a confrontation at the stands at halftime but the altercation ended quickly.
Joonas Donskoi collected a puck behind the Oilers; net that had been rimmed around the boards by Marc-Edouard Vlasic.
Though the Oilers didn't capture that first victory, they can surely take away enough to come back and win Game 2. Hertl led the way for the Sharks with three shots on goal.
The sold out crowd, which was already revved up from seeing its first Oilers playoff game in 11 years, didn't need long to be sent into a frenzy.
"What we've done all year is just believe in the process and stay with it and believe in one another". "I was just off with timing and stickhandling and making plays, receiving passes", the 28-year-old told reporters.
When the regular season ends and the Stanley Cup Playoffs begin it's like a fresh start with 16 teams battling for one shiny silver prize.
Gorsuch sworn in as Supreme Court justice
You may call Gorsuch whatever you like-interloper, cipher, beneficiary of a stolen seat-but his formal title is now "Justice". The result of these stratagems is a more politicized court and a new justice viewed by one party as illegitimate.
"It doesn't matter where we were in March", DeBoer said.
"I don't think there's a lot of fear in young players", he said. The Sharks failed to generate any pressure at even strength, could not capitalize on a multitude of power plays, allowed two shorthanded goals, and wasted a 34-save performance from Martin Jones for good measure. Now factor in that both Joe Thornton and Logan Couture and listed as game time decisions for game one and one has to curb any enthusiasm for both the playoffs and this series.
The Sharks largely dominated the second half of the second period, outshooting the Oilers 9-4.
Jones made nine saves in the first period, stopping a pair of quality chances by Maroon on the Oilers' first power play, and later saving a shot by Jordan Eberle on a shot from the slot.
Officer fired after kicking handcuffed man
A working phone number couldn't immediately be located for him, and it wasn't clear whether he has an attorney who could comment. Bongiovanni said he verbally ordered Hollins to exit the auto several times and threatened to use his Taser but the man refused.
