It was a common theme on this night as the magic of post-season hockey finally returned to Edmonton.

"We're here now and that's all that matters".

There needs to be balanced zone time and better play from the Oilers in the neutral zone.

"It was a good experience for everybody, but there is a bit of a lesson there".

"We got the chance and I snuck it in", said Karlsson. The Sharks outplayed the Oilers in Game 1, while the Oilers outplayed the Sharks in Game 2. Karlsson wired a shot past Cam Talbot's glove to win it.

Pro athletes are so well trained and so elite that it is rare to see them undone by raw emotion.

Or at least they can dry their tears with a pile of cash. We know their key guys and what they want to do. Their penalty killers got exhausted.

Despite the Sharks' slide down the standings in the spring, DeBoer spoke about the fact that, for much of the season, his team was at the top of the division.

SAINT PAUL, Minn. - A busy night by goalie Jake Allen and an overtime goal by Joel Edmundson propelled St. Louis over Minnesota in the opener of their first-round playoff series.

"It's not going to bother us from our routine", Tierney said.

"As a group we wanted to have a good bounce-back game", said Kassian.

"That is a lesson learned on our behalf". "We talk about it all the time". Sharks defenceman... San Jose's Tomas Hertl is 11-4 in the faceoff circle so far...

This time the Oilers kept their foot on the gas pedal.

It was a pretty drastic turnaround for the Sharks, who had won just once in 25 games all season when trailing after two periods. That may be a foreshadowing of bad things to befall the Oilers.

The Sharks lost 10 of their past 14 games but have shown they will not be an easy mark.

Eight of Jones' saves on the penalty kill, another one of the few bright spots for the Sharks as they killed all four Oilers power play chances.

FHP: 14-year-old crashes SUV, several seriously injured
Authorities rushed De Jesus and his mother, 32-year-old Amanda Teresa Rossiter, to Tampa General Hospital with serious injuries. Also in the vehicle was 34-year-old Louis Gabino Serrano Soto, his three young children and a 16-year-old friend of the family.

"The beauty of the Stanley Cup playoffs is all it takes for a team to get in and once you get in really anything can happen", said San Jose Sharks Spokesman Jim Sparaco. By comparison, the Oilers have only a fraction.

One element that many pundits who picked the Oilers to win this series might have overlooked is just how valuable playoff experience can be for a team.

Thornton looked good skating but didn't do many sudden stops or changes of direction that could put pressure on the knee.

Lucic made it 2-0 with less than three minutes to go in the period on a power play. At one point, the team gathered around him on the ice as he scribbled on a blackboard.

Oilers legend Wayne Gretzky appeared on Oilers Now with Bob Stauffer on Thursday.

The Sharks may have had a frightful play-in to the playoffs, but if Wednesday night was any indication, the switch has been flipped. We have to be better. We couldn't find a way to get back and do some rolling.

They will be available at Game 2 on Friday at the north LRT entrance on a first-come first-serve basis, two hours before puck drop. We didn't in the second game.

The Oilers must stay out of the box.

It said those killed were mostly residents of two villages in Idlib province but included rebel fighters guarding the convoy. It was not immediately clear if the evacuees feared attacks similar to Saturday's bombing.
