Joe Pavelski scores fastest playoff goal in Sharks history

Edmonton fans strike Oilers with $336k in 50/50 winnings

Following a two-minute hooking penalty to Edmonton defenseman Kris Russell, the Sharks dictated pace and eventually netted another first period goal.

Craig Custance: A goal and an assist through two games and his team split with a veteran Stanley Cup contender - I'd say his start has been just fine. Even though Edmonton's first playoff victory since 2006 came on Friday night. "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 goal was the latest tying playoff goal in Canadiens history, beating Jacques Lemaire's goal in 1975 with 24 seconds remaining. It does not really bleed into the next, though in this case there is surely the potential for the suspension of Leon Draisaitl after he pitch-forked Chris Tierney in the bits and earned himself a major and game misconduct.

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. "Just not much either way and so we just got in there inside and made a few plays tonight". "Tonight was a big lesson". That's not our team, that's not our game. "From Minute One to Minute Sixty, it was completely one-sided".

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

Pavelski said: "We got a split there, they got one here". At this point, he is scoreless through four games. The Oilers have gotten back-to-back shutouts from goalie Cam Talbot to take the lead in the series. And Patrick Maroon couldn't get a handle on the rebound in the slot with a gaping half-net to fill.

The struggling San Jose power play set a record as well, converting 4 of 8 chances (the previous mark was three set five times in the playoffs). They were in the middle of a power play when it occurred. Baseball Hall of Famer Rickey Henderson, donned in a Sharks jersey, opened the dressing room door to lead San Jose's players on the ice before the game.

The Sharks also need their top two-way forward, Logan Couture, to find his game again.

That's what they did Tuesday, when they ensured that they'll have at least one more home game this season.

Sharks' approach won't change for Game 2 vs. Oilers
Joonas Donskoi collected a puck behind the Oilers; net that had been rimmed around the boards by Marc-Edouard Vlasic. Gryba was caught out of position on Karlsson's game-winner, and took an elbowing penalty on Couture in the second.

Talbot departed at that point, but Pavelski's power play goal at 16:46 on Laurent Broissoit - on another patented deflection by the captain - upped the lead to 6-0 at the second intermission.

Who takes home Game 4?

The Sharks smoked the Oilers, 7-0 on Tuesday at SAP Center, outplaying Edmonton from the opening faceoff to the final horn in tying the series at two games apiece.

"We've been saying we have confidence in it", Joe Thornton said.

"Yeah, we're going to have to score some goals". "I took another step tonight".

"(Experience is) only good if you use it in the right way", Marleau said.

"It was pretty obvious it was something that needed to happen", McLellan said. There is no time for panic or doubt to start creeping in.

It is the Oilers who now are confronted with questions about their firepower and mettle.

The series now shifts back to Edmonton for a pivotal Game 5 on Oilers ice. "I thought we had a sense that there was no chance that we're not coming out of this game without a win".
