EDMONTON, AB - Here is a quick rapid reaction of Game 2 between the Oilers and Sharks.

THE SCOOP: The Oilers were perfect on special teams, scoring two shorthanded goals - one from Zack Kassian  and the other by Connor McDavid  - and killing six penalties to defeat the Sharks 2-0 in Game 2.

PLAY OF THE GAME: As the Oilers are killing a penalty, Zack Kassian disrupted the Sharks' defencemen at the Oilers blueline. Mark Letestu  gathered the loose puck and fed a speeding Kassian. Kassian went low blocker on Martin Jones to give Edmonton a 1-0 lead.

FIRST STAR: Zack Kassian. The Oilers energizer threw his body around, skated at highway speed and scored a shorthanded goal - the first playoff point of his career - to lead the charge for Edmonton.

TRENDING UP: Connor McDavid and Cam Talbot . McDavid scored the first playoff goal of his career shorthanded and Talbot recorded his first career playoff shutout to tie the series 1-1.

KLEFBOM UPDATE: Oscar Klefbom  took a Brent Burns shot to the inside of his left leg in the final period and did not return to the game.

WHAT'S NEXT: Game 3 will be played Sunday at SAP Center. The game will start at 8:00 PM MDT.
