Thornton returns to lineup for Sharks in Game 3 vs. Oilers

To weather a storm, you see, is to run and hide while Mother Nature has her tantrum.

EDMONTON -San Jose Sharks coach Peter DeBoer says he won't be taking a wrecking ball to a power play that has gone from lacklustre to downright liability in the National Hockey League playoffs.

"We want to get that fixed", DeBoer said.

Edmonton was a good penalty killing team at home during the regular season - 82.3 percent at Rogers Place - and that carried over to Games 1 and 2, when the Oilers surrendered just one PPG on 12 opportunities.

In their first home game of the series, the Sharks came out hitting everything in sight after losing the physicality battle in games one and two.

Logan Couture, Joe Pavelski and Brent Burns had 197 points during the regular season, but have combined for only one point in three playoff games. It's the kind of stunt that good teams pull all the time in the playoffs.

"As a team we're growing", said Kassian. Remember when RNH played solid defensive hockey and carried the puck with skill, confidence and trickery on the attack? "We've got to do better, we flat out do".

“We knew that they were going to come out hard and the crowd was going to be a factor tonight, ” said Talbot. It's a growing experience for our team. The next game of the series will be played Tuesday at SAP Center. Schlemko tried to toss the puck up the ice from a corner in his own zone.

Russia knew Syrian chemical attack was coming
Until Monday, U.S. officials had said they weren't sure whether Russian Federation or Syria operated the drone. Tillerson has a meeting set later Wednesday in Moscow with Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

Kassian intercepted a weak clearing attempt by Sharks defenceman Dave Schlemko, then slid a backhand shot past goalie Martin Jones to break a scoreless tie at 10:45 of the third period. "We knew if we stuck with our system, kept getting pucks behind them and using our speed eventually they were going to turn something over and we would capitalize". "It's a game of mistakes and that winds up in the net".

"It was tight. There were some Grade A chances at both ends and both goalies played great". "One shot, one block, one bounce". Over the course of sixty minute game, that's 96 hits. The margin of error is razor-thin. "If we do, eventually, they are going to find a way to make them count".

Connor McDavid was at the center of Edmonton's two best second-period chances.

The McDavid unit found its legs and the Draisaitl line produced a goal with some pressure on the forecheck.

Coach Pete DeBoer welcomed back Joe Thornton to the line-up Sunday. It's one of their strengths.

“The first game in Edmonton didnt go the way we wanted it to, but weve been building off it ever since and were a pretty confident group in here right now.”.

"In fact, I whispered in his ear it was a promotion because his responsibility level had to go way up. And I don't think it was". They had the upper hand when it came to aggression, and barely let the Oilers manage too much.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins suddenly and finally looks like his 2014-15 self. "You can move his body around a little bit, but as soon as the shot comes he's there". And we're playing well, doing it the right way. That in itself is progress, that we're thinking like that. "Obviously here you need to win early or you're going to be gone".
