The San Jose Sharks competed in their first-ever Stanley Cup Finals last season, while the Oilers were sitting at home in Edmonton in yet another playoff absence.
Some who couldn't get tickets lined up to buy $80 tickets that got them onto the Rogers Place concourse, but they'd have to watch the game on television screens. It was a half-breakaway.
"We had a power-play goal in the first game".
SAN JOSE - Joel Ward: Following an underwhelming regular season, one off last year's playoff hero (7g 6a) will be expected to chip in when it counts.
Milan Lucic and Oscar Klefbom scored for the Oilers.
Connor McDavid's, the NHL's leading point-producer, also assisted on Lucic's goal.
The Sharks couldn't help but notice a difference in the Oilers, but they say it isn't anything they didn't expect, nor is it anything they can't handle. "They had the puck all night". They took different paths to get to this point, but Meier, with his size, is showing he can be a valuable piece of the puzzle for the Sharks.
Thornton appears to be making progress from a left knee injury he suffered on April 2, but he remained out of the lineup Friday with still no clear idea on when he'll return. He missed seven games after having his mouth and teeth smashed by a deflected puck.
The teams were headed in opposite directions coming into the playoffs. Game 3 is Sunday night in San Jose as the series now turns into a best-of-five.
"That's a good team over there and moving forward that's the way we're going to have to play if we want to win". Anything can happen, any team can get hot or ride a hot goalie until they end and more often than not it does. "The reason we went so far past year is because we kept coming back in the second and third periods".
Edmonton was 0-for-3 on the power play, and is 1-for-6 in the series. Letestu promptly passed it to a streaking Kassian, who barreled in alone and fired a wrist shot low past Jones' blocker.
Jones dropped to 15-11 all-time in the playoffs, allowing two goals on 34 shots.
When they last met, the Sharks were outshooting Edmonton 32-9 over the final 40 minutes and overtime in Game 1.
Jones played well overall, though the same can not be said about Team Teal's special teams units - Edmonton killed off six power plays from San Jose and the only goals on the board - one from Zack Kassian and the other Connor McDavid - were of the shorthanded variety. Joonas Donskoi came around behind the net and fed the puck in front on the backhand to Ward, who redirected the puck past Talbot. Edmonton would amass just 19 shots while the Sharks put the test to Cam Talbot with 44.
It was a pretty drastic turnaround for the Sharks, who had won just once in 25 games all season when trailing after two periods.
The concern for San Jose, as well as Edmonton, is that the even nature of this series is not a product of both games being close, but from both clubs putting forth inconsistent efforts.
But all that time in the penalty box took a toll, according to Eberle.
One thing that will be key for the Oilers in game two is staying out of the penalty box.
"At this time of the year you just throw him out and you use him", said McLellan. "I thought some of our best players were young guys tonight".
"We've got to let this one go", he said. The Oilers just have to keep the puck in the zone, make smart plays and get bodies in front. We did a good job during the regular season. That crowd is going to be bonkers and they are hungry for playoff hockey.
