Gameday Blog: Game 6 vs. Edmonton

The series returns to the Bay Area as the San Jose Sharks host the Edmonton Oilers

Welcome to the Gameday Blog, the one-stop shop for San Jose Sharks fans on every playoff gameday. This blog will be updated throughout the day with news, lineup information, videos, and tweets, so be sure to check back as they day goes on.

The first round series returns to San Jose for the final time as the Sharks and Edmonton Oilers face off in Game 6. It is a must-win game for the San Jose Sharks in front of their home crowd, as the Oilers lead the best-of-seven series 3-2.

Game 6 sees the Sharks coming off a disappointing overtime loss, the second time the team has lost by a margin of a single goal. 

"It's been a razor thin edge and we've on the wrong side of these games," head coach Peter DeBoer said yesterday.

One of the reasons that - outside of the Game 4 win - all the games have been close has been Martin Jones, who has picked up where he left off in last year's playoff run. 

With the intense home crowd behind them, the Sharks hope to force Game 7 and make the series return to Edmonton.

Jones Remains Strong Throughout First Round

by Ross McKeon / sjsharks.com

While the Sharks focus is locked in at looking forward, at least they know Martin Jones has their back.

San Jose's goalie has quietly put together the most consistent performance among his teammates during the first-round Stanley Cup playoff match-up against Edmonton. Quietly, that is, until overtime of Game 5 Thursday night north of the border. That's when it became abundantly obvious Jones was certainly holding up his end of the bargain.

"He's been excellent," Sharks coach Peter DeBoer said Friday. "What I really liked about Jonsey last night was how well he played in overtime. We were on our heels a little bit, he made some huge saves to keep us alive and give us a chance to try and get one."

The San Jose Sharks try to take a series lead in Game 5 in Edmonton

by Ann Frazier, Casey Krygier / sjsharks.com

Welcome to the Gameday Blog, the one-stop shop for San Jose Sharks fans on every playoff gameday. This blog will be updated throughout the day with news, lineup information, videos, and tweets, so be sure to check back as they day goes on.

After an explosive Game 4 that saw the San Jose Sharks win by a franchise-record seven goals, the series is tied at two games apiece and is now down to a best of three. 

It's been a feast or famine sort of series for the Sharks offense so far. In Game 1, the team overwhelmed the Oilers in the second, third, and overtime periods to win 3-2, and in Game 4 they set a franchise record for margin of victory. On the other hand, the two losses were both shutouts.

"Buy into the defense and the offense will come," Justin Braun said at yesterday's practice. "A lot of guys bought into that."
