Sharks' Joe Thornton Played With Torn ACL, MCL In NHL Playoffs

The Edmonton Oilers are heading to the Western Conference semifinals. The Oilers gave the Sharks too much time and space with the puck, and in turn, that led to them pulling within a goal thanks to Patrick Marleau. They haven't won a playoff series since advancing to the Stanley Cup Final in 2005-06.

If the Oilers fail to knock off the Sharks in game six, then game seven would be back in Edmonton on Monday night.

Will the San Jose Sharks force a Game 7 when they meet the Edmonton Oilers tonight at 10:30PM ET in Game 6? Jake Allen made 34 saves for the Blues, who led 2-0 and 3-1 in Game 5 before a furious rally by the Wild to try to keep their season alive forced the extra frame.

With longtime stalwarts Marleau and Joe Thornton heading into potential free agency this summer at age 37, the Sharks could have a very different look next season.

If Game 1 were to take place Thursday at Honda Center, Fowler would have had 3 1/2 weeks off since getting hurt. "We're going to have to be prepared to play our game". Edmonton won three of the five games between the two teams in the regular season, the most recent a 3-2 overtime win on April 1. "Until I think I can't do that anymore, I'll cross that bridge when we get there". Respect them obviously. They're a good team.

"But I think most people still consider us the underdogs", said Talbot. "I'm the guy that's supposed to produce and do that", he said.

She said: 'I don't think that this election is about changing the government'. The leader's position hadn't been that clear earlier in the day.

"You've got control of the offensive zone and we're buzzing".

Thornton downplayed the injury before the team announced the severity of what he played through and the surgery, calling it simply "the normal stuff that hockey players deal with" at this time of the season.

With the Sharks inside the Edmonton zone, Paul Martin couldn't handle an off-target pass from Chris Tierney back to the Oilers' blue line. Joel Ward, Tommy Wingels, Tomas Hertl and Karlsson each had one, complementing the top players like Couture and Joe Pavelski, who combined for six game-winners.

Rangers 3, Canadiens 1: Mats Zuccarello scored twice in the second period, and NY beat Montreal in Game 6 to advance to the Eastern Conference semifinals. The Senators lead the series 3-2 with a game set for Sunday afternoon. Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle, as good as they were defensively except for the 7-0 game, didn't score and Milan Lucic and Patty Maroon had one goal, same as Desharnais and Slepyshev. Wojtowicz says the next thing she knew, the situation had escalated and she was punched in the face.

The sequence began when Oilers defenceman Oscar Klefbom blocked a shot by Sharks defenceman Justin Braun and the puck was steered to Draisaitl.

The Sharks finally found their game after that and put on heavy pressure late in the second period, but Talbot made a nice save on Marleau in alone and Marcus Sorensen hit the cross bar on another chance.
