Oilers vs. Sharks live stream, Game 4

Oilers vs. Sharks live stream, Game 4

Riding the momentum created by Zack Kassian and Cam Talbot, the Oilers will try to take a 3-1 series lead when they meet the Sharks in Game 4 on Tuesday night at SAP Center in San Jose.

During last year's run to the Stanley Cup Finals, the Sharks were 17-for-63 (27 percent) on the power play in postseason series against Los Angeles, Nashville and St. Louis as they won the West.

"We've got to find a way with the group we do have". "We'll have to take our game up a notch, starting in Game 4". The goal was the product of the Sharks trapping the Oilers third defensive unit of Darnell Nurse and Matt Benning on the ice and wearing them down in the zone. Sharks veteran centre Joe Thornton was back in the lineup for the first time this series, having recovered from an April 2 injury to his left knee that forced him to miss five games. So far, San Jose has gotten goals from Melker Karlsson, Paul Martin and Joel Ward, who combined for 25 in the regular season.

Things would continue the Sharks way in the first period.

"That first goal got us feeling good", said coach Pete DeBoer. The slap shot provided a bit of redemption for Schlemko, who gave up Game 3's only goal after an errant pass near the Sharks goal. He has no goals and no assists to show for the first four games.

"We're not playing against a team that has just appeared in the playoffs". "It means nothing now going on to the next game - 1-0 or 7-0 - it's just another game and you keep moving forward".

One outcome of the Oilers' physical play is that they have committed 12 minor penalties in two games.

"We've got a big orange sign, we've got flags, we've got insane hair, and so far we've gotten four-and-a-half honks, and we've gotten a few of those gestures that sometimes you get in traffic if you don't behave", said Scheetz.

After head coach Todd McLellan preached and preached about the modus operandi of the team he used to coach of jumping all over you the first 10 minutes, the Oilers allowed the winning goal 15 seconds into the game and were down 2-0 by 11:02.

People don't need to wonder about the San Jose Sharks' scoring ability after Tuesday. Pavelski added another, while Logan Couture scored twice and Patrick Marleau, Marcus Sorensen and David Schlemko also found the net in the Sharks' most convincing playoff win in franchise history. The Oilers have five goals and have shutout the Sharks in back-to-back games.

Joe Thornton's return to the lineup in Game 3 had an immediate impact with a first period that saw the Sharks out-shoot and out-hit the Oilers by a 2-to-1 margin, though nothing was converted to the scoreboard.

"It is important that our big guys step up", Lucic, who has a goal and an assist, said.

"It was pretty obvious it was something that needed to happen", McLellan said. "I felt great. I feel healthy and ready to go for Game 4 now".

The NHL playoff game between the San Jose Sharks and Edmonton Oilers will be broadcast on NBCSN and Sportsnet in Canada.

One thing that's also clear is that the young guns of the Oilers, namely Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl don't seem to be handling the way stars get treated by their opponents in the playoffs.
