McDavid, Kassian score short-handed, Oilers beat Sharks 2-0

Cam Talbot made 23 saves for his second straight shutout and Zack Kassian scored the only goal as the Edmonton Oilers downed the San Jose Sharks 1-0 on Sunday in Game 3 of their Western Conference quarter-final series.

The Sharks preached patience after they were held scoreless in games two and three, saying that if they continued to play well on defense and capitalize on their scoring opportunities, they could get right back in the series. Certainly Talbot does not bear sole responsibility for the loss because he had no appreciable defensive help. If San Jose is going to even the series on home ice, they need to test Talbot more often. "We have to find a way to get a couple goals here".

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

Burns and Joel Ward led San Jose with three shots each. "We'll have to take our game up a notch, starting in Game 4". He has five total over the past two games after recording eight in the Sharks' series-opening win.

43 killed in Himachal bus accident
The daily travellers preferred the same bus which had a tragic accident on the Uttarakhand-Himachal border of the terrirtory. According to local TV, the bus driver told passengers shortly before the accident that the vehicle's suspension was damaged.

To give a little perspective as to how much the Sharks dominated in the second, the Oilers spent roughly 11 minutes of the period killing penalties and allowed four goals in that time - two power play and two even strength.

Beech said it all started when the couple's oldest son, Evan, 7, saw the contest on the Jumbotron during a pre-season game past year and convinced him to sign up. In the Sharks' Game 1 overtime win, the team took 44 shots.

Thornton is in his usual role as the top-line center for San Jose against Edmonton on Sunday night. And you can probably cross quite a few other things off that list, as you'd expect with the Sharks throttling Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers 7-0 in Game 4. San Jose had a 13-6 advantage in shots. Does the manner in which a game is won have any relevance to how the next game is played?

Pierre LeBrun: His short-handed goal in Game 2 was like so many rushes we've seen all year in which he actually gets faster after he gets the puck on his stick, which is just not normal.

In the second period, the Sharks threatened early with Talbot coming up big on consecutive shots by San Jose forwards Jonas Donskoi and Tomas Hertl.

"We got this giant Oiler cake made for him, they did a great job of it, and his receptionist said, "Oh, he's going to love this, you Canadians are so nice". "I think our power play in the second game mimicked our 5-on-5 play". 57 seconds into a power play, the Sharks converted on a slap shot from the point by Schlemko, beating a screened Brossoit.

NOTES: Searching for offense, Sharks coach Peter DeBoer opened Game 4 with all new forward lines without changing any personnel from the previous game.

Thornton started the game on a line with captain Joe Pavelski and Melker Karlsson as his wings. C Micheal Haley, RW Kevin Labanc, D Dylan DeMelo and LW Mikkel Boedker were San Jose's healthy scratches.
