Edmonton Oilers fans making noise in San Jose

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. Edmonton will head home with their tails between their legs and the Sharks in hot pursuit for game five on Thursday night in Rogers Place.

"Can't say enough good things about the guys in front of me the last couple of games", Talbot said Monday after a practice in preparation for Tuesday night's Game 4. The goal was the product of the Sharks trapping the Oilers third defensive unit of Darnell Nurse and Matt Benning on the ice and wearing them down in the zone.

"We were bad tonight, obviously", McDavid said.

Numerous same fans who took in Game 3 on Sunday, and maybe some new arrivals, will be at the SAP Center, hoping for another road win and a stranglehold on the series.

The Sharks are 6-9 all-time when a series is tied at two games apiece. "We have to score to win, so offensively that's what we've got to concentrate on". The Oilers carried more of the play and outshot the Sharks 12-4. Oilers winger Leon Draisaitl was replaced on the top line in the second period by Anton Slepyshev.

Facing elimination, the Blue Jackets got a 3 goal lead, then nearly blew it, but hung on to win 5-4 and force a Game 5 in Pittsburgh Thursday.

"You can't overreact to that", DeBoer said.

San Jose banked 59:45 of lead time in Game 4 and packed plenty of positives into the one-sided win.

"Every playoff game in my mind is a must win", said Couture. Thornton missed the past two weeks after injuring his knee in a regular-season game at Vancouver.

The Sharks came up with three power play goals by the second of the second period while building a 6-0 advantage.

The emphasis on team defence that is paying off now has been part of the Oilers philosophy since Todd McLellan took over behind the bench before the 2015-16 season. He has no goals and no assists to show for the first four games.

"On the ice you can see how he buys time for everyone around him", Klefbom said. He has quietly been one of the NHL's best goaltenders in the playoffs, despite his relative lack of experience.

Impenetrable in Games 2 and 3, Talbot was yanked after Logan Couture scored for the second time on a power play with 7:08 left in the second period. The Oilers should be able to find a way to get the victory here.

Edmonton's deficiencies in the post-season were supposed to be their depth down the middle and the lack of productivity among their bottom nine forwards, but they have shored up their lines and matched up well with the Sharks.

"I don't know if there was that much (of a change)", said Couture, who beat Oilers goalie Cam Talbot with two hard shots. However, in the last 22 games, including the postseason, Burns has only two goals and seven assists - with three of those points coming in one game.

Captain Joe Pavelski disclosed his strategy for Tuesday's game at practice yesterday that it's just about getting inside, winning that one-on-one battle and when you get the chance, stick it in the net.
