San Jose closes it out with a 2-1 win and runs the win streak to three.

Edmonton used their timeout to pull the goalie and scored an extra attacker goal.  Things will be interesting late.

Time is winding down on the Oilers as the final minutes are approaching.  San Jose has played a strong team defensive game so far.

Antero Niittymaki makes two big stops on Andrew Cogliano to keep the two goal lead.

Give the Oilers credit for a long shift in the offensive zone.  The youngsters from Alberta are continuing to fight.

Sharks not settling for the current score and are keeping the heat on.

Big period for San Jose as closing out this game would give them a three-game winning streak.

What a difference 20 minutes can make.  The listless first period was replaced by a fun second where San Jose posted two goals on 17 shots.

Now it's 2-0.  San Jose took advantage of a man advantage as a Dan Boyle point shot bounced through to the back of the net.  Boyle now has 17 power play goals in his Sharks career and is the all-time leader in the category.

Joe Pavelski's stick is held in the offensive zone and the Sharks will again be up a man.

The Logan Couture show keeps right right on rolling.  He and Ryane Clowe found just enough space behind their defenders and Clowe's reach around pass hit Couture in stride.  The rookie buried the opportunity for the 1-0 lead.

When even strength play resumed, San Jose could not have asked for a better scoring opportunity.  Joe Thornton has the puck at one sided of the net with Dany Heatley and Patrick Marleau on the surrounding the rest.  Both Heatley and Marleau seemed to have goals, but neither could fully connect.

The HP Pavilion crowd is going crazy.  San Jose killed off the first power play and then Logan Couture skated away on a breakaway.  Fellow rookie Taylor Hall was forced to hall him down, with will provide San Jose an abbreviated power play.

Edmonton is going to get 1:13 of five-on-three time with Niclas Wallin and Scott Nichol taking the PIMs.

Benn Ferriero, Joe Thonrton and Dany Heatley create two prime chances for San Jose, but the game remains even.

Edmonton may have had their most extended shift of the night, but two key saves by Antero Niittymaki hold the fort down.

Tom Gilbert holds Ryane Clowe, giving San Jose their second PP opportunity.

A great blocked shot by Niclas Wallin prevents a late chance for Edmonton and the period ends scoreless.  Just five shots apiece.

Dan Boyle just leveled Jordan Eberle in the neutral zone.  One of the Sharks better hits of the year.

Still going slow on the ice which is not what you would expect with the two clubs.  Six shots total.

The clubs are feeling each other out as there were just 5 combined shots in the first 10 minutes.

No goal on the power play, but the Sharks controlled the offensive zone more than 1:20 and a bulk of it was following the power play. 

San Jose gets the game's first man advantage as Zack Stortini is called for goaltender interference.

The Sharks and Oilers are underway.  Douglas Murray did not return.

Antero Niittymaki and Nikolai Khabibulin are the starting netminders for the evening.
