Oilers orange crush surging in Sharks' Silicon Valley

Alas, San Jose's ageing distributor is hurt, and without Thornton San Jose has had issues with making the Oilers pay, in fact surrendering two short-handed goals in that 2-0 loss in Game 2.

It was a 3:30 a.m. start for Downton on Sunday, but he managed to get to the SAP Center well before game time.

McDavid, the NHL's regular season points champ, got one assist on a power play in Game 1. There have been only eight goals between the two teams in the first three games of the series. "Games 1 or 2, he hadn't played in a long time, too, so he's getting more confident as the series goes on".

Some trends don't bode well for the home team.

The young Oilers were shaking off questions about experience and style of play before Tuesday, yet this was the sort of setback people were waiting for, especially against grizzled veterans in San Jose.

Sorensen was all alone at the side of the net to deposit a rebound of a shot from Schlemko at 9:46 and suddenly the Sharks had more goals in less than half of Game 4 than they had scored in the first three games combined.

"I don't know if it's sunk in, but I'm sure throughout the day it will", said Kyla Lane who attended Tuesday's game in San Jose.

Thornton returned to play on the top power play unit, but the Sharks' problems persisted as they wee unable to set up in the Oilers' zone for any significant amount of time.

Zack Kassian added that he feels the Oilers are going to see the Sharks best game tonight.

The Oilers, though, regrouped in the second period when they outshot the Sharks 12-4 and slowly gained some momentum. The Oilers have gotten back-to-back shutouts from goalie Cam Talbot to take the lead in the series. Four of San Jose's seven goals happened with a man advantage, including the most important score of the night.

The Sharks' first power play in the period was cut short as Ward, 72 seconds after Benoit Pouliot was called for roughing at the 16:43 mark, was given a tripping penalty. He missed the final three games of the regular season and the first two playoff games after injuring his knee at Vancouver on April 2. Couture is wearing a wire cage to protect from any further damage, and the Oilers have playing rough with him.

San Jose went on the power play at 16:43 when Edmonton winger Benoit Pouliot was guilty of a rough. "You have to have a really good goaltender-both teams have that right now".

Couture had 15 goals in 37 games at home in 2016-17. He has no goals and no assists to show for the first four games.

"We'll have to get better", he told reporters on Sunday before he left the podium. "The same message should be for the playoffs".

Coach Todd McLellan knows what to expect from the franchise he coached for seven seasons before being replaced by DeBoer.

From top to bottom Edmonton showed why they can be a unsafe team on Sunday.

Over the lunch hour, Sir Winston Churchill Square will be the site of a community rally organized by the city to allow Edmonton Oilers fans a chance to wear orange in solidarity, showing support for the team ahead of game five of the Stanley Cup playoffs against San Jose Sharks. Certainly I can be a lot better, I think, but that's the nature of playoff hockey. Now they can't hide from it, and it's not going to sneak up on them.
