Sharks even series with 7-0 win over Oilers in Game 4

Also not a concern: Cam Talbot being in their heads.

Joe Pavelski of the San Jose Sharks scores past goalie Laurent Brossoit of the Edmonton Oilers during the second period in Game 4 of their National Hockey League playoff series at San Jose's SAP Center on April 18, 2017.

Right now San Jose needs to find something to jump start its offense. Neither team's big offensive producers have made a splash in the series so far.

If the first three games of the series (3-2, 2-0 and 1-0) were a coin toss, this was taking a roll of Loonies, putting it in a sock and beating Edmonton senseless with it.

Cam Talbot made a total of 39 saves in back-to-back shutouts in Games 2 and 3 but was pulled after allowing five goals on 24 shots Tuesday night. He hadn't scored any game-winners since March 9, 2015, while with the Vancouver Canucks.

"Can't say enough good things about the guys in front of me the last couple of games", Talbot said Monday after a practice in preparation for Tuesday night's Game 4. "That doesn't win at this time of the year and I think we're proving that". So expect more of the same in Game 5.

Earlier, Connor McDavid was called for interference for hogtying Pavelski, an infraction that led to a goal by Patrick Marleau.

Couture said: "I felt better tonight". The Oilers have won 14 of 17 games, including four of five from San Jose. "Just keep to our fundamentals and we'd be fine, and you saw that tonight".

The scoring drought ended about as quickly as one could hope, after winning a faceoff in the Oilers' zone Justin Braun ripped a shot from the point that was redirected by who else but the master of defelctions, Joe Pavelski, to put the Sharks on top just 15 seconds into the game, and effectively sent the goal starved crowd inside the tank into a frenzy.

Despite what the coach said, Connor McDavid, who can not shed the blanket being tossed on him in the neutral zone, said the team will be inclined to forget that one right away. At some point in the not too distant future we won't be able to count his playoff goals one hand. "When you threw the numbers at the group two years ago when we started, Edmonton had a reputation of playing real fast, get on offence and see what happens. We got a split here and that's what we came to do". Burns set career highs with 29 goals and 76 points as he played a full 82-game slate for the third straight season.

The Oilers haven't allowed a goal since Melker Karlsson's overtime victor in game one at the 3:22 mark.

Sharks coach Pete DeBoer juggled his lines for the game, moving Marleau to the top line with Pavelski and Joe Thornton. The Sharks Power Play also finally found it's game, which had some missing over a majority of the season, scoring at and impressive 50% clip (4/8).

Hundreds of fans were cheering "Let's go Oilers" outside the SAP Center, and the noise continued inside. Once that first puck went in, a bushel of goals followed.

The return of centre Joe Thornton to the Sharks lineup in Game 3 should not change Edmonton's basic defensive approach, Klefbom added. Game 5 is in Ottawa Friday night.
