It's the penultimate game of the regular season for the San Jose Sharks, as they close out their road schedule against the Pacific Division rival Edmonton Oilers.
The Sharks continue to go through their late-season rough patch, dropping Tuesday's game to the Vancouver Canucks 4-2. Joe Pavelski scored in his return from injury, while Kevin Labanc also added a goal. Joe Thornton's two assists tied him with Steve Yzerman for 8th all-time in assists.
In the previous four meetings between the Sharks and Oilers, the Sharks have come away with a 3-0-1 record. The last game between the two saw Kevin Labanc record his first career hat trick, while Joe Thornton, Evander Kane, and Tomas Hertl all registered multi-point efforts.
This game doesn't mean much to either club. The Sharks have already secured the second seed in the Pacific playoff bracket, while the Oilers have been eliminated from playoff contention. But the Sharks still would like to get back into the win column in the final few games prior to the postseason.
