Cam Talbot: Cam Talbot gets the hook in loss to Sharks
The Sharks know they're going to be surrounded by friendly faces when they return to SAP Center on Sunday with their best-of-seven playoff series against Edmonton reduced to a best-of-five.
San Jose isn't exactly a hockey hotbed.
"I like playing on the kill, especially in these games when we keep taking a lot (of penalties). For me as a player, (I) can just focus on my game and you know he's going to take care of his business".
The Sharks rallied from a 2-0 first-period deficit in Game 1 of the Oilers series to win 3-2 in overtime, a contest that included the team converting one of six chances on the power play.
Patrick Marleau, Marcus Sorensen and David Schlemko also scored for San Jose, Brent Burns had three assists and Martin Jones made 23 saves for his fourth playoff shutout.
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.
In all, the Sharks looked every bit like the team that up until mid-March, was in control of the Pacific Division with their sights firmly set on another deep playoff run.
While that puts the spotlight on Edmonton goalie Cam Talbot, he is quick to share the credit. "It felt really bad on the bench so we played it safe and went in to take a few pictures". San Jose continued to apply pressure but couldn't even it up. Your coach, Peter DeBoer, says the decision will be up to you.

Marleau started the onslaught with his first of the playoffs with a power-play strike at 2:02 after Edmonton defenseman Oscar Klefbom had a failed clear. The again, he was the goalie who allowed five shots to get past. They will try to carry that over into Game 5 on Thursday night in Edmonton. We haven't been like that all year. "It's a 10-minute game then a 50-minute game; how we control the first 10 minutes of the game, then what we do after that".
The Sharks' goal drought ended quickly.
Oilers coach Todd McLellan said he hoped his players learn some lessons from the shellacking. Nothing went right for the OilersTuesday night.

The power play, which prior to Game 4 had been about as effective as a North Korean missile test, also came alive.
Things would continue the Sharks way in the first period. "I think he came out and had a great game for us for not playing in a while".
Couture centered the second line with Joonas Donskoi and Jannik Hansen, and Tomas Hertl played in the middle on the third line with Melker Karlsson and Timo Meier. Edmonton made no lineup changes from Game 2 to Game 3. F Mikkel Boedker was a healthy scratch after appearing in the first two games of the series. LW Matt Hendricks, RW Iiro Pakarinen, LW Jujhar Khaira and D Eric Gryba did not dress for Edmonton.
