Sharks' approach won't change for Game 2 vs. Oilers

Knowing full well that a 2-0 series deficit would pretty much be the end of them (86 per cent of the teams that go up 2-0 go on to win the series), the Oilers showed San Jose that they can turn their game up a notch, too. Hertl led the way for the Sharks with three shots on goal. The series heads back to San Jose for Game 3 on Sunday.

Joel Ward and Paul Martin replied for San Jose in regulation time.

Joonas Donskoi collected a puck behind the Oilers; net that had been rimmed around the boards by Marc-Edouard Vlasic. After that, the next three games, if all three are necessary, will be played in San Jose.

Their work paid off with the tying goal at the 5:22 mark of the third period.

PLAY DEFENSE PLEASE! - Marc-Edourd Vlasic and Justin Braun have been embarrassing and the Oilers top six have been nearly unstoppable. "Preparation is going to be a little more extensive than what it normally is, because the games come so fast".

The Oilers were credited with 40 hits to just 21 for San Jose, a stat that's even more telling considering Edmonton had the edge in shots, too.

It was the first postseason game in Edmonton since June 17, 2006, when the Oilers beat Carolina in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals. Score close situations can be very predictive of a team's true ability, but those numbers are a likely product of score effects, as the Sharks trailed 2-0 entering the second period of Game 1 before halving the Oilers with a power play goal.

Notes: The Oilers got a scare in the third period when defenceman Oscar Klefbom went down after blocking a shot. "If we're going to win this series we're going to need all lines going, different guys every night".

Alonso to skip Monaco to race Indy 500
Watching F1 racer Fernando Alonso pass on the Monaco Grand Prix to race in this year's Indianapolis 500 got Hamilton thinking in broader terms.

McDavid, 20, finished the regular season with an NHL-best 100 points and is the favorite to win the Hart Trophy as the MVP in only his second season in the league.

"I thought some of our best players were our young guys tonight", said Sharks coach Peter DeBoer.

With Logan Couture battling an injury and Joe Thornton missing game one, I figured the Oilers would take advantage offensively, but that wasn't the case. After getting some of their playoff jitters out of the way, the Sharks dominated most of the game. The remaining 43 minutes of the first game, however, didn't go their way.

"It's not completely healed", Couture said after Monday's skate.

The Sharks may have had a frightful play-in to the playoffs, but if Wednesday night was any indication, the switch has been flipped. "(McDavid) gets his eyes up, he's going to make plays. "You really have to go through it to learn it. People can say things, but until you personally go through it, in that aspect, experience does help". We were down by two, but I thought we were playing well. "They had the puck all night".

"At this time of year there is always another good team that gets in your way so it's not going to be handed to you, you have to go earn it".

Afterward, then Sharks coach Ron Wilson described the sequence like this: "That was like the black knight from Monty Python". "We've seen that before. We expect it and we'll deal with it like we always have".

"We did a good job of it last night". Gryba was caught out of position on Karlsson's game-winner, and took an elbowing penalty on Couture in the second.
