Game Notes S.J vs EDM
Edmonton Oilers (Head Coach: Todd McLellan) at San Jose Sharks (Head Coach: Peter DeBoer)
NHL Game #183, SAP Center at San Jose, 2017-04-16 08:00:00PM (GMT -0600)
Referees: Brian Pochmara, Kevin Pollock, Brad Meier
Linesmen: Scott Cherrey, Vaughan Rody, Bryan Pancich
Three Stars: Cam Talbot; Martin Jones; Zack Kassian
- WOW WHAT A GAME! I love playoff hockey!
- Statistically, that was completely even up. Talbot was the biggest difference maker.
- I should also point out that being statistically even is actually a win for the Oilers. Coming back to San Jose after that commanding second game, plus getting Jumbo back, means the Sharks were as pumped as they’re going to get. The best they could manage was to play even up.
- Bit of a redemption game for Desharnais. De Boer did everything he could to shut McD down, and although they didn’t score, the Nuberlooch line ran roughshod over their Sharks opposition. That’s a really really (really) really good thing.
- I also liked the reffing much better. The refs let most things go, and although the few penalty calls were kind of at random, they at least went with the flow of the game (in the sense that they generally reflected the distribution of infractions).
- Bring on Game 4!

Looks like Benning Nurse had quite a night. However I felt there was a lot of chaos in their game especially in the first 25 mins.
Is Benning just slow? It seems he had a lot of problem with speed. When hell was breaking loose, yup, there was Benning somewhere unhelpful.
IMO he’s never fully recovered from his concussion/ knee injury combo. Both hard to recover from, and you can really see the dip in his numbers from when it happened.
