Edmonton Oilers blank San Jose Sharks again, grab series lead

Edmonton Oilers blank San Jose Sharks again, grab series lead

The Sharks fan base was left wanting, as San Jose was shut out for the second consecutive game, this time by a final score of 1-0 in Game 3 of the first round in the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The Oilers have won the last two games after San Jose claimed the opener. David Schlemko's clearing attempt hit Kassian and deflected in front of the Sharks net. San Jose finished 0 for 2 with a man advantage in Game 3 and is now 1 for 14 this postseason.

Thornton took part in the Sharks' pregame warmup, something he had not done before games 1 and 2 in Edmonton and began the game on a line with Joe Pavelski and Melker Karlsson. He has played all three playoff games but has no points and three shots while averaging 19:22 of ice time. Edmonton responded with 12-4 shot differential in the second period. Connor McDavid generated a pair of chances with about four minutes to go, but his wraparound try was thwarted by Jones, and Patrick Maroon couldn't find a handle on the loose puck.

Those opportunities were squandered, however, as Edmonton goalie Cam Talbot turned away all 13 first period shots. Even though the Oil dominated the game, the trap is set for the Sharks to fall into.

Filing an Extension? Don't Forget to Pay IRS
Thompson said. "So while filing for an extension is a simple process, filing your return by the original due date is advised". Each return reflects tax paid by one or more individuals, so it's unclear how many people paid penalties for lacking coverage.

ONWARD: Oilers will nearly certainly need to score more than one goal in Tuesday's game, but the squeeze is on. Milan Lucic, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle will have to continue be good - likely better - if the Oilers are going to follow through on what they've started in this series.

The Sharks power play was no great shakes in the regular season, ranked 25th at 16.7 per cent. Instead of trying to play a sandpaper game, the Sharks should focus 100 percent on chance creation. San Jose's Logan Couture, his face still a mess of wire and plastic to fix the damage after being hit with a shot, ditched the full cage in favour of the visor to improve his vision. Of course, McDavid scored a fantastic goal, but his line has yet to fully crank it up.

"As a group we wanted to have a good bounce-back game", Kassian said. If Edmonton can just get their discipline under control then taking control of the series will be a lot easier of a task. I have Gary on the phone right now and we're about to sign off on the terms of the punishment. He had 18 assists and 21 points in 24 postseason games a year ago with the Sharks.

I will concur with the rest of the observers that the game played by Oiler 3rd line winger Zack Kassian was likely the best of his professional career.

An official from South Korea's Defense Ministry couldn't immediately confirm whether the rocket was a new ICBM. Military planes flew in formation, creating the number "105" above Kim Il Sung Square.

Thornton has been out since April 2 after appearing to suffer a knee injury against the Vancouver Canucks.

"I'm sure with their coaching staff and everyone scouting, like we would do on [Oilers center Connor] McDavid, they've done on Brent", Martin said.

San Jose pulled Jones in favor of an extra attacker with 1 minute, 47 seconds left, but was unable to change the outcome.

Marc-Andre Fleury gets surprise start in net for Penguins
The momentum lasted all of 51 seconds, or as along as it took for Crosby and Guentzel to break in 2-on-1. Evgeni Malkin scored his first goal of the postseason, and Patric Hornqvist pushed in an empty-net goal.
