Oilers' McDavid on Game 4

But after that, it was the Oilers, who outshot San Jose 12-4 in the middle period, applying the pressure.

It's Game 5 Thursday evening at 8:35 p.m.

"We were just ready", Pavelski said.

"You know, during the decade of darkness, you have your head hung low and you're wondering when is this going to end." said Downton.

The Sharks set three notable franchise playoff records in the win: the seven-goal margin of victory was their largest ever, their four power play goals was the most they've ever scored in a game, and Pavelski's goal just 15 seconds in was the fastest in team history.

After Justin Braun drew a Zack Kassian penalty heading into the first intermission the boy wonder, Connor McDavid, took a frustration interference penalty at the onset of the second period to give the Sharks a two man advantage. "You have to build into every game (plan) an errant high stick, a trip that you don't mean, a hook or an interference call..."

"The message to start the season was get better as the season goes on", right wingrt Jordan Eberle told the Edmonton Sun. Western Conference. The Oilers are 19-7 in their last 26 games playing on 1 days rest, 10-1 in their last 11 home games and 14-4 in their last 18 overall. They arrived in Redding, Calif. on Sunday, then drove the final 250-kilometre leg to San Jose.

"This is an intimidating building to play in, and it is even more when you've got a lead early", Couture said.

"I just think we win tonight, it's a new series", San Jose center Joe Thornton said. Logan Couture moved down to second-line center. Shark David Schlemko scored a power play goal 6:45 into the third for a 7-0 lead.

After enduring multiple long stretches without recording a shot on goal in games two and three the Sharks clearly game planned to avoid repeating this particular mistake. Laurent Brossoit replaced Talbot - and gave up a second goal to Pavelski, again on a power play, less than four minutes later. Now they will try to carry that over into Game 5 in Edmonton on Thursday night. "It keeps me in the game for sure", said McDavid. It was a good hockey game by both teams. We haven't been like that all year. We weren't able to do it last game.

After the Sharks spent two days answering questions about their anemic offense, the focus now shifts to the Oilers and 20-year-old phenom Connor McDavid.

The NHL playoff game between the San Jose Sharks and Edmonton Oilers will be broadcast on NBCSN and Sportsnet in Canada. Joel Ward added two assists. More importantly, he was winning battles along the boards on both sides of the puck, an indication that his tenacious two-way game is rounding back into form. "We rode that momentum". If the Oilers can continue to play this well on defense, the Sharks don't stand much of a chance. The Sharks Power Play also finally found it's game, which had some missing over a majority of the season, scoring at and impressive 50% clip (4/8). "I thought we were pretty desperate tonight and it showed up". The opening face-off is at 8pm from the SAP Center.

Sharks coach Peter DeBoer juggled his lines in search of any kind of offensive spark, moving Marleau up to the top line with Joe Thornton and Pavelski among other changes.
