GAME HIGHLIGHTS ARE PRESENTED BY BETWAY


The Sharks thought they had opened the scoring just a few minutes into the game but it was called brought for an offside call. Not long after that, San Jose actually opened the scoring when Alexander Barabanov buried a rebound that Jack Campbell had kicked out…
The Oilers tied the game at 1-1 shortly after. Mattias Janmark found the puck on the forecheck and fed it out front to Warren Foegele, who feathered it to Nick Bjugstad for an easy tap-in on the doorstep…
The Oilers earned their first lead of the night just 30 seconds into the second period. Connor McDavid picked up a rebound and carried the puck around the net and fed Kailer Yamamoto out front who managed to beat a sprawling James Reimer…
The Sharks again had a goal called back but then went ahead and actually scored shortly after. This time, Steven Lorentz sped in on a partial break and buried his own mid-air rebound past Campbell…
