Managing just five goals in the first four games, Edmonton played to a 2-2 series tie until a 4-3 overtime victory and a 3-1 win to seal the series in game 6.

But they understand why the oddsmakers are picking Anaheim to beat them in Round 2.

A year after making their first trip to the Stanley Cup Final, the Sharks' season comes to an end in the first round of the playoffs. In the last two, he was on the ice for 22:08 and 22:01.

"And that's fine by us". You win games when the secondary help comes through.

It was the first time a first round didn't feature a Game 7 in any series since 2001. He's the franchise leader in just about every offensive statistical category, including games played (1,493) goals (508) and points (1,082). "We just went through a round", Oiler centre Ryan Nugent-Hopkins said Monday after practice at Rogers Place.

After blowng a chance to eliminate them on Friday night at home, the Ottawa Senators will try and get the job done in Boston today.

The Oilers were 22-14-5 on the road this year (seventh) but the Ducks won 29 of 41 at home at the Honda Center, good for third in the National Hockey League. "Until I think I can't do that anymore, I'll cross that bridge when we get there". "They haven't lost in 18 straight games". "There's a lot of variables that go into that decision, and the first one is me sitting down and talking with both of them".

They won despite a lineup of young players, and even some veterans, with little to no playoff experience at the National Hockey League level. The fans are awesome, and we have a great team. The whole veteran thing is out of the picture now. And Thornton, who had his hands full with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, was playing on a left knee that some say might have ACL damage. These playoffs are highs and lows. Similarly, Gibson was pulled from Game 3 in Calgary but otherwise was very solid in the series sweep.

"It will be more intense, the physical play". Their defencemen are strong.

"It's going to be big and physical", said Maroon. The extra stuff after the whistle, we have to keep taking care of, using our strengths.

If Patrick Marleau had the sole decision, he would stick around and sign a contract extension with the San Jose Sharks. I don't see San Jose making a run for the Cup with the core as it's now constructed and bringing back Thornton and Marleau makes the team better at a time when San Jose needs to lose to get a better draft pick. Unlike the Sharks, the Ducks were gaining momentum down the stretch and look mighty ferocious right now. "I think this is a Stanley Cup-calibre team and I think I'm a little bit older and I realize how good this team is". "We're in the second round, you have to be confident in yourself".
