The Edmonton Oilers are on a four-game losing streak following a 3-2 defeat to the lowly San Jose Sharks on Thursday. Below are the highlights from the game.


The Sharks opened the scoring late in the first period. Fabian Zetterlund was all alone in the high slot and buried a shot past Stuart Skinner to make the score 1-0.
The Oilers evened the score at 1-1 early in the second frame. Darnell Nurse took an outlet pass from Leon Drasiaitl and flew up the ice on a two-on-one. Nurse kept the puck and sniped a shot blocker side past Mackenzie Blackwood.
The Sharks regained their lead a few minutes later when Tomas Hertl capitalized on a fortunate bounce in Edmonton’s zone.
Filip Zadina gave the Sharks a 3-1 lead early in the third period when he buried a pass from Nico Sturm on a two-on-one. It was the third goal of the season for Zadina, who was the last first-round pick Ken Holland made while with the Detroit Red Wings.
The Oilers made things interesting late in the third period when Ryan Nugent-Hopkins buried a rebound to make the score 3-2. The Sharks managed to close the door after that and escape with their second win of the season.
