Edmonton Oilers Dominate to Win Game 2, Tie Series

"And now, whether those tickets get bought or not, the perception is going to be that the line was a result of these extra tickets and the Oilers end up looking kind of greedy and kind of silly".

The Sharks generated 13 shots on goal on the power play in six opportunities, including Joel Ward's early second period goal.

Couture said it was good to get back on the ice as he tries to get back into condition after sitting for two weeks.

Puck management, shift lengths and discipline were all hot topics for the Oilers on Thursday, all mistakes they feel are easily correctable.

"Teams change. They change rosters, they change players, they change lines". "You want anybody that's on the ice other than Connor McDavid carrying that puck from the most unsafe area of the ice, and that's the speed zone between the two blue lines".

Edmonton captain and young gun Connor McDavid, playing in just his second National Hockey League season, has led the Oilers to a 103-point year, their best mark since recording 106 during the 1986-87 season. Couture says he is still in pain and the injury has not fully healed.

Logan Couture, the Sharks' top two-way centre, would normally draw the straw to shut down McDavid, but he missed the last seven games of the year after taking a deflected slapshot to the mouth.

The teams were headed in opposite directions coming into the playoffs.

Down by a pair 17 minutes in on Wednesday night in Edmonton, it seemed as if San Jose was going to get swallowed up by the sea of orange sweaters that filled Rogers Arena for the building's first ever playoff game.

"We need to get better there".

Zach Parise tied the game with 22.7 seconds left in regulation for the Wild, whose dominance was thwarted by a stellar performance from Allen. "The last time, I was four years old, so I don't really remember it".




Connor McDavid, the Oilers' 20-year-old captain and National Hockey League regular-season scoring leader with 100 points, had an assist on Lucic's goal.

"Especially on the power play, (I) threw some pucks away and lost some pucks that normally I make better plays on", said Couture.

Letestu promptly passed it to a streaking Kassian, who barreled in alone and fired a wrist shot low past the blocker of goalie Martin Jones.

And then there's Milan Lucic, a veteran of 101 playoff games and a Stanley Cup in Boston. The Sharks won three out of four to close the season, but that came after a stretch that saw San Jose lose eight of nine and slide from first to third in the Pacific Division.

When they last met, the Sharks were outshooting Edmonton 32-9 over the final 40 minutes and overtime in Game 1.

Tomas Hertl in particular had a strong game, with 7 shots on goal, 2 hits, and a key assist on Paul Martin's tying goal in the third period.

Game 3 goes Sunday night in San Jose.

But all that time in the penalty box took a toll, according to Eberle.

The Edmonton Oilers look like they're starting to get the hang of this playoff thing. "The guys who kill (the penalties) are wasting a lot of energy and the guys who aren't are sitting on the bench".

The result was a sharp contrast from Game 1, when the Oilers were outshot 44-19 en route to a 3-2 overtime loss.

"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". "We just need to work through it". We did a good job during the regular season.
