Joe Pavelski scores fastest playoff goal in Sharks history

Joe Pavelski scores fastest playoff goal in Sharks history

After going 1 for 12 with the man advantage in the first two games, the Sharks were held without a shot in 3:12 of power play time through two periods.

San Jose received an emotional boost with the return of Joe Thornton, who put the first rubber on Talbot with a wrist shot from the right circle at 7:54. Now, there is no shame in losing to a team such as San Jose.

"You can't say enough about him right now", Talbot said of Kassian. "He's playing at a new level". I think he's picked up his game. That's what we need in the playoffs.

"These guys came at us hard and kept it coming", sighed centre Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.

Oilers head coach Todd McLellan said was not as quick to dismiss the loss, hoping his team could grow from the 7-0 blowout.

While the Sharks have a vast encyclopedia of playoff knowledge at their disposal, they don't think it automatically gives them the edge heading into Game 4.

Brent Burns, Joe Pavelski, Logan Couture, Thornton and Patrick Marleau were the Sharks five leading scorers in the regular season. Pavelski added another power play goal to make it 6-0 after two.

"Every game I play now I'm going to get better and just continue to get stronger", Thornton said.

Notes: The Oilers got a scare in the third period when defenceman Oscar Klefbom went down after blocking a shot.

Defenseman Brent Burns, who led National Hockey League defensemen with 76 points during the regular season but had been held without a point in the first three games, had three assists and led the Sharks with five shots on goal.

For the second consecutive game, Cam Talbot had a shutout and Zack Kassian scored the winning goal for the Oilers in the game -3.

The fourth power play goal and final tally of the game would come courtesy of Sharks defenseman David Schlemko midway through the third.

Detroit drops fourth straight in 6-3 loss to Minnesota
Minnesota's bullpen bounced back from a rough game Thursday against Cleveland to finish out the game after Santiago's exit. So far in 2017, the first baseman has a.226/.339/.434 slash line with three home runs entering Friday's game.

San Jose fired 44 shots on net in its 3-2 overtime win in the series opener, but totalled only 39 in its two losses.

"We're disappointed with the way it went", Sharks forward Joe Pavelski said. We didn't in the second game. He found out the city's mayor had a birthday on Sunday, so they chose to help him celebrate.

During last year's run to the Stanley Cup Finals, the Sharks were 17-for-63 (27 percent) on the power play in postseason series against Los Angeles, Nashville and St. Louis as they won the West. 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.

"I don't know if it's sunk in, but I'm sure throughout the day it will", said Kyla Lane who attended Tuesday's game in San Jose. "We had our chances". "That's not our team, that's not our game".

"Just stay engaged in the game is the biggest thing", Talbot said. Now you're saying the decision is up to him? "He's done well limiting the chances we've given them". The Oilers should be able to find a way to get the victory here.

The Sharks needed 15 seconds of the first period to take a 1-0 lead.
