San Jose dominated at home in Game 4, winning 7-0 to even up this series. Still, the Oilers have won five of their last seven meetings with the Sharks. Each team has won a game at home and on the road in this series. San Jose is 48-31-7 overall and 21-19-3 on the road while Edmonton is 49-27-10 overall and 26-12-5 at home.

The Sharks never let the Oilers get started in Game 4, as Joe Pavelski scored just 15 second into the game and San Jose never looked back. Pavelski would score again in the second period while Logan Couture also had two goals in the win. Martin Jones stopped all 23 shots he faced in the win. The Oilers struggled all game, racking up 25 penalty minutes while having 17 giveaways and getting outshot 32-23.

Bet on Oilers vs. Sharks

Cam Talbot struggled in Game 4, but he has still been a big asset for the Oilers in this series. The scoring outburst had been brewing for San Jose after being shutout in back-to-back games, but things should return to normal in Edmonton. Talbot will bounce back at home and the Oilers’ offense should be eager to jump out on the Sharks like San Jose did in Game 3.
