Stanley Cup 2017 – Oilers vs Sharks – Stats for Game 4

Game Notes S.J vs EDM


Edmonton Oilers (Head Coach: Todd McLellan) at San Jose Sharks (Head Coach: Peter DeBoer)

NHL Game #184, SAP Center at San Jose, 2017-04-18 08:00:00PM (GMT -0600)

Sharks 7-0

Referees: Chris Rooney, Kyle Rehman, Francois St-Laurent
Linesmen: Scott Cherrey, Vaughan Rody, Bryan Pancich

Three Stars: Logan Couture; Joe Pavelski; Martin Jones

  • I figured this game the Sharks would see as a must win and the Oilers would see as a can’t lose, and it might be a little one-sided.  But still, this was ridiculous.
  • Good news though! This was nowhere close to the kind of possession domination the Oilers had in Game 2!
  • Really, the equation was this: a fired up San Jose team + overconfident Oilers squad + rare weak game from Dadbot = blowout loss.  There was no “message sent” – games like this can and do happen, and mean nothing. Forget it and move on.
  • You just scrap it. We were bad tonight, obviously. That’s not our team, not our game… It’s a one-off” – Connor McDavid.
  • Yup. It’s now a best of three, with the Oilers having home ice advantage. Bring it on!
