National Hockey League playoffs: Sharks' Joe Thornton played with torn ACL, MCL

Leon Draisaitl and Anton Slepyshev scored on breakaways in the opening minutes of the second period, and the Oilers advanced to the second round of the playoffs with a 3-1 victory in Game 6 over the San Jose Sharks on Saturday night.

The Sharks almost got the equalizer on a late power play, but Joe Pavelski's backhand attempt hit the cross bar and post.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Sharks are favored in Game 6, as they are getting odds of -145 to win, while the Oilers are listed with a money line of +125.

If the Oilers advance, they would face the Pacific Division champion Anaheim Ducks in the next round.

The Oiler power play was killer at nearly 23 per cent (ranked fifth) while the Ducks were a wall on the penalty kill (84.7 per cent and ranked fourth). Fighting off a check from Braun, Draisaitl got a shot off and found the five-hole on Sharks goalie Martin Jones just 54 seconds into the second period.

Fox cuts 'The O'Reilly Factor' over sexual harassment claims
However, the "Loyal O'Reilly" listeners deserve to know the truth and he and his team are now working in that direction. O'Reilly will continue to air his podcast , which he says will be extended in length.

But the Oilers weren't done offensively after securing a 1-0 lead at the SAP Center.

Just 56 seconds later, Slepyshev got into the action when Paul Martin mishandled a pass from Chris Tierney at the point.

As the second period progressed, the Sharks pushed hard to get at least one of those goals back. He returned but was not at his usual level, and teammates said he was basically playing on one leg.

Thornton's production fell a bit this season. Moments later, Ward's shot got past Talbot but went off the post.

Desharnais also assisted on Oscar Klefbom's tally with less than three minutes left in regulation en route to his third career multi-point playoff game. The Oilers held a 9-6 edge in shots on goal and 22-8 advantage in shot attempts. The Oilers were then assessed for a too-many-men infraction with 4:57 left, and San Jose was in full attack. Edmonton has won six of its last eight meetings with the Sharks as well. He went to a visor so he could see better and went into traffic which showed how game he is but he wasn't the usual Couture.

Donald Trump signs executive order targeting H-1B visa programme
White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Trump wanted to visit "a company that builds American-made tools with American workers". Adding to the indignity: The U.S. workers are sometimes asked to train their replacements to qualify for severance packages.

"We know if we lose, we're done, so that always brings out your best game, especially with our group", he said. But we've been here before. They trailed 3-1 late in the second period before Mark Letetsu scored on a power play.

"We've been here before".

"We were up, we protected leads, we were behind, we came back, we won in overtime, we got blown out and we learned lessons from that".

The Ducks, like the Sharks, are a veteran team with a lot of playoff miles, led by Ryan Getzlaf, Ryan Kesler, Kevin Bieksa and Corey Perry. The 29-year-old defenseman, who topped the National Hockey League during the regular season with 213 blocks, was overtaken for first place in the playoffs as San Jose's Justin Braun recorded a game-high 10 to increase his postseason total to 26.
