Sharks regrouping as power play goes from lacklustre to liability versus Oilers

04-13-lotterygraphics2

The Maple Leafs' David to Washington's Goliath; Nashville's eternal playoff failings to Chicago's uncanny post-season success? But they'll be damned if they're going to be the Oilers' first victims in 11 years. The Oilers bounced back from a lukewarm start and responded with a near-perfect effort, winning a chess-like affair by capitalizing on a late San Jose miscue to take a 2-1 series lead. McDavid, the Oilers captain and the next big thing in the National Hockey League, has a goal and an assist in his first playoff series.

It was like that old yarn about the young bull and the old bull, standing up on the hill surveying the herd of cows.

Kris Russell and Matt Benning also signed as free agents, but it was the trade for Larsson that got the most attention from critics who thought the Oilers gave up too much for too little. "Let's walk down there and get 'em all".

I think it matters a lot.

The Sharks completely neutralized Edmonton's play makers throughout the game. "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".

The San Jose Sharks broke their goal-scoring drought with a vengeance Tuesday to run the Edmonton Oilers right out of SAP Center.

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.

"Their big boys stepped up and had a game like they did tonight", said Milan Lucic. Even though Edmonton's first playoff victory since 2006 came on Friday night. "We have to go back and get one there".

"But then you know, two years to the day when we won the lottery to get Connor McDavid and things changed forever, and it makes all those moves and all those mistakes, and poor games worth it ..." "We didn't in Game 2".

The Sharks coach shuffled up his top three lines in Game 4, striking the right note up and down the lineup. "It was a huge bounce-back game and a big confidence booster".

There are some things Edmonton has that the Sharks can't match. He gained a step on San Jose defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic to attempt a wrap-around, which Jones denied. It's not Micheal Haley. "In fact, I whispered in his ear that it was a promotion because his responsibility level had to go way up". "The physical play, the speed, the emotion that's in the game - that's Kass. This is a big game and it would be nice to win this and bring it back to Edmonton (up 3-1)", he said.

"It was pretty obvious who was our best player". In the playoffs, they have combined for one assist. It's a luxury that for seven years we had here in San Jose when I was with this team. With contributions from both players Tuesday, the team that looked like Western Conference favorites as recently as March 15 has suddenly been resurrected with the series tied 2-2.

"He puts himself in a spot where it's really hard to defend because you really need to pay attention to where his stick is at", Klefbom said of Pavelski, known for his net-front tips.
