The San Jose Sharks broke open the bank and collected some milestones Saturday night in a 5-2 victory over the struggling Edmonton Oilers at Rogers Arena.
The San Jose Sharks continued their winning ways in the province of Alberta, extending their win streak to five games while improving their overall record to 33-16-7. Team Teal is registering the league’s best point percentage at .800% since the beginning of the calendar year, per naturalstattrick.
Last nights game against the Oilers started off with a bit of a scare. The team lost fourth-line center Melker Karlsson early in the first period after some aggressive cross checks to the back of head and shoulder area. However this didn’t stop the San Jose Sharks from finding the back of net.
Despite playing without both the Karlssons (Melker and Erik) for a majority of the contest, the San Jose Sharks prevailed scoring five spectacular goals. The entire Sharks roster seemed to be clicking on all cylinders, with players like Kane, Burns, and Hertl continuing their strong play while getting others involved in Team Teal’s most recent offensive outburst.
Their were plenty of scoring chances to go around making this game chock full of highlights. However their were three key moments of the night that definitely deserved to be given more attention. This was a night that a few San Jose Sharks will probably never forget.
