The Sharks have lost five straight, they've been shutout three times in their past nine games, and they are currently sitting in 11th place in the Western conference. They won't have their leading goal scorer, Logan Couture, tonight due to a deep bruise from a collision with the Leafs' Colton Orr on Tuesday, and with only ten wins in 22 home games the Oilers might have a fighting chance tonight.
