Sharks beat Oilers in first game of Stanley Cup Playoffs 2017”

Melker Karlsson scored early in the first overtime as the San Jose Sharks came back to beat the Edmonton Oilers 3-2 on Wednesday night in Game 1 of their Western Conference quarter-final series.

The Sharks took game one from Edmonton but couldn't produce any of the same production in game two of the series.

McDavid, the league's regular-season scoring leader, scored his first NHL playoff goal at the 10:31 mark of the third period, streaking down the left side and launching a short-side wrist shot that eluded Jones. "Preparation is going to be a little more extensive than what it normally is, because the games come so fast".

Oilers: Milan Lucic. The big forward factored in on both goals in Game 1, with one goal and one assist.

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. The Sharks dominated the shot clock 44-19, but still went into the extra frame tied at 2.

"Last year I made every single playoff game, every home game except the final game so I blame myself for not winning the cup", said Maria Habiger of Campbell. (Pavelski) made the pass, saw me going in the middle, a half break away. Burns led San Jose with six points (two goals, four assists) vs. the Oilers.

Sharks head coach Peter DeBoer said that his team's performance to start the playoffs is far more indicative of his squad than the one that stumbled down the stretch, losing nine of their final 13 games in the regular season.

The Oilers really gained energy after that one, pressuring the Sharks, hitting everything that moved and doing to the Sharks exactly what the Sharks did to them in Game 1. They were the better team tonight, we were the better team the other night. We just have to get back at it. The remaining 43 minutes of the first game, however, didn't go their way. They were even worse in the neutral zone, where the Sharks controlled almost 62% of loose pucks, an area that is usually close to equal. Their experience from last season's Stanley Cup run gave them the confidence necessary to face the 2-0 deficit in an energetic arena. "We got what we probably deserved out there".

"(But) they're going to be a lot better. We couldn't find a way to get back and do some rolling.

Officials with the Oilers Entertainment Group say it's the biggest 50/50 jackpot in team history. "We're experiencing this for the first time in a decade".

"We understand what those guys can do", Pavelski told reporters after the game. "We just have to get that power play, make it a little bit more unsafe".

"Let's Go Oilers" chants filled Rogers Place for much of the night, starting before the team was even on the ice for the pre-game warm-up.
