SAN JOSE, CA -- Here is a quick summary of Game 6 between the Oilers and Sharks.

Video: OILERS TODAY | Game 6 Post-Game

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.
