THE SCOOP: The Oilers scored two breakaway goals early in the second period - the first by Leon Draisaitl and the second from Anton Slepyshev - then got an insurance marker from a Connor McDavid empty-netter to win the game 3-1 and series 4-2.
PLAY OF THE GAME: After Draisaitl's goal, Slepyshev picked up a botched Sharks pass and busted in all alone on Jones. He went blocker side to give the Oilers a 2-0 lead. That ended up being the winner.
FIRST STAR:Cam Talbot. The Sharks pressed desperately in the third period to get the equalizer but could not largely because of Talbot and his 27 saves.
TRENDING UP: Anton Slepyshev. He had himself a good game and scored the game-winner.
KLEFBOM UPDATE: Oscar Klefbom did not play in the third period but stayed on the Oilers bench.
WHAT'S NEXT: The Oilers will play the Anaheim Ducks in Round 2.
