Thornton returns to lineup for Sharks in Game 3 vs. Oilers

Game 3 is Sunday night in San Jose. The game kicks off at 10:00 PM EST in SAP Center. For San Jose, at least - the Oilers got trampled under the hooves.

"It becomes tougher because there's more bodies going to the net, it's sporadic", Oilers coach Todd McLellan said when assessing Talbot's tidy performance at the podium after the game.

After splitting the first two games of the series in Edmonton without Thornton, the Sharks are now down 2-1.

The Oilers have no reported injuries with the exception of Tyler Pitlick, who's out for rest of the season.

"We have confidence", Thornton said of the San Jose power play showing.

Logan Couture took a punishing hit up high from forward Zack Kassian in Game 2 of the Sharks' Stanley Cup playoff series with the Edmonton Oilers on Friday night.

Numerous same fans who took in Game 3 on Sunday, and maybe some new arrivals, will be at the SAP Center, hoping for another road win and a stranglehold on the series.

David Schlemko's clearing attempt was intercepted by Kassian in the slot, and Kassian beat Martin Jones with a backhand to make it 1-0 with 9:15 to play. The Sharks were 7-for-48 on the power play in March and 1-for-8 in April's last four regular-season contests for a combined 14.3 percent success rate.

The Oilers haven't allowed a goal since Melker Karlsson's overtime victor in game one at the 3:22 mark.

"He has a lot of courage", DeBoer said of Couture's effort.

Talbot departed at that point, but Pavelski's power play goal at 16:46 on Laurent Broissoit - on another patented deflection by the captain - upped the lead to 6-0 at the second intermission. Either way, I'm siding with the Edmonton Oilers simply because they've lost just one home game over the last month and the Sharks aren't exactly the most turstworthy team on the road. "And I think, I don't think it's a secret that as our key guys are getting healthier and feeling better, you know, we're starting to look better in that area". Cam Talbot turned aside 23 shots en route to his second consecutive shutout. "I definitely felt a little bit of nerves in the first one".

"He dominated the game tonight", McDavid said.

Goals have been hard to come by for both the Oilers and the Sharks.

People don't need to wonder about the San Jose Sharks' scoring ability after Tuesday. "It doesn't matter if it's 1-0 or 7-0, the series is 2-2 and now we're heading home to play in front of our fans".

Of course, it's also important to note that you don't get a single bonus for winning a playoff game by seven goals or by winning an overtime thriller. In total the Sharks have been gifted 12 power play opportunities in two games so far.

Now, you guys, this is a Very Serious Offense (I'm sorry Offence) and it can not be tolerated.

The Oilers scored the third most goals in the Western Conference during the regular season. "Our top scorers haven't experienced this level of hockey", McLellan said after the game.
