Oilers Pegged Dogs in Polarizing 4th Game With Sharks

Zack Kassian was an unlikely hero in Game 3, leading the Oilers to victory with the contest’s one and only goal. Martin Jones has now been beaten five-hole four times in the series and his team is well on its way to an early elimination if the offense continues to be completely impotent. There’s been just three goals scored – all by the Oilers – in the last two contests and the Sharks have converted on just one of their postseason-high 14 chances on the man advantage.

SHARK BITES
  • Cam Talbot has allowed just 3 goals on 80 shots faced this postseason.
  • The Oilers are 10-2 SU in their last 12 games and 6-0 on the puckline in their last 6 in San Jose.
  • The visiting team is 10-1 on the puckline in the last 11 games in this matchup.

Losing and giving up 44 shots in Game 1, the Oilers got the jitters out of the way early and went on to dominate the Sharks defensively in games 2 and 3, limiting San Jose to just 39 total shots in those games despite being short-handed eight times.

With a power play that operated at an inefficient 16.7 percent clip in the regular season, there’s little hope that the Sharks can figure out their woes with the man advantage this series and they’ll have to look for answers five-on-five, where they thrived all year.

That said, the Oilers have been making chum out of the Sharks since Game 1 and that underdog value on Edmonton is calling my name. If you can find a bet to parlay with that Edmonton +1.5-goal spread, do it. Even if the Sharks win, there’s almost no chance they do it by two goals as they posted just 15 puckline wins at the SAP Center in the regular season.
