Edmonton put San Jose on the brink of elimination with a 4-3 OT win at home in Game 5 on Thursday night. The Oilers now hold a 3-2 edge in the series. Edmonton has won six of its last eight meetings with the Sharks as well. The Oilers come into tonight’s game at 50-27-10 overall and 23-15-5 on the road. San Jose is now 48-31-8 overall and 27-12-4 at home.

The Oilers peppered the Sharks for 48 shots on Thursday night and the Oilers held a 33-20 edge in hits and a 41-28 edge in faceoffs, yet they needed OT to win. In the overtime alone, the Oilers held a 14-2 edge in shots. David Desharnais got the game-winner 18:15 into the extra frame for the win. Martin Jones did what he could to get the Sharks a win, stopping 44 shots.

Bet on Oilers vs. Sharks

The Oilers are going on the road, but I feel like they have been the better team for most of this series. The Sharks got the big 7-0 win in Game 4, but other than that, Edmonton has dominated the key stats. The Oilers have been the more aggressive team in terms of shots and hits and I think that is ultimately going to lead to a win today as well. Jones has played well, but the Oilers are going to continue to overwhelm him with scoring opportunities.
