Zack Kassian: Zack Kassian's goal deflates Sharks

Zack Kassian: Zack Kassian's goal deflates Sharks

The contest rules stated that winners had two business days to claim their prize, but Oilers officials made a decision to give him the money anyway while making the deadline information more prevalent on the raffle tickets and the team's website.

They may not have what it takes to win the Stanley Cup this year, or even get past the Sharks for that matter.

Zack Kassian broke a scoreless tie midway through the third period, and the Edmonton Oilers held on for a 1-0 win over the San Jose Sharks on Sunday night. San Jose's power play was ranked 25th in the National Hockey League in the regular season at 16.7 percent. Neither team's big offensive producers have made a splash in the series so far.

After being outshot 13-6 in the first period, the Oilers controlled the play in the second, with the Sharks struggling to keep up with McDavid's speed.

Edmonton now leads the best-of-seven series 2-1, with Game 4 at the Shark Tank again on Tuesday night.

He was quick to reference the assist that led to the game victor.

"It's a confidence booster for our team", said Kassian. "He's playing at a new level". I think he's picked up his game, and that's what we need in playoffs. Your top guys usually get marked pretty hard so you need secondary scoring and hes giving it to us.”.

"He's playing well", Couture said of Talbot.

The only goal came with 9:15 to go in the third period. Thornton suffered a lower body injury in the Sharks game against the Vancouver Canucks on April 2, and has missed San Jose's past five games.

Battlin' Matt Benning was solid, not looking at all jittery, and Darnell Nurse was good enough that I was consoling myself that if Klefbom was out, Nurse could step up and get the job done.

Thornton took part in the Sharks' pregame warmup, something he had not done before games 1 and 2 in Edmonton and began the game on a line with Joe Pavelski and Melker Karlsson.

The game started with a fast pace and much more physical play from the Sharks than they showed in Edmonton. "One shot, one block, one bounce".

"Joe Thornton would help us in a lot of different areas, including (the power play) but we don't have him", said DeBoer. And Patrick Maroon couldn't get a handle on the rebound in the slot with a gaping half-net to fill.

LATE HITS: McLellan moved Leon Draisaitl to centre with Drake Caggiula and Kassian and replaced him on the first line with Anton Slepyshev. He simply wanted to change the matchup dynamic, and it appeared to pay dividends. He's the first Oilers goalie to record back-to-back playoff shutouts since Curtis Joseph in 1998.

"Early on we had some pep", Thornton said.

"It's everyone rallying together to watch us beat the Sharks", said Fleurette Mulumba, who watched the game with two friends. Some interesting deployment by Todd McLellan, who in my view was one of the stars of Game Three.
