After the San Jose Sharks were eliminated from the postseason following a 4-2 first-round series loss to the Edmonton Oilers, Sharks head coach Pete DeBoer revealed the 37-year-old center played the final four games of the series with a torn ACL and MCL.

Actually, they probably have until Wednesday or Thursday, depending whether any of the other series go seven, before they play Game 1 in Anaheim. In the last two, he was on the ice for 22:08 and 22:01.

"And that's fine by us". "You have to step up at this time of the year to play at this time of the year". Those games have not yet been scheduled.

"They're going to try and shut us down", said Draisaitl.

The Edmonton Oilers became the first Canadian team to advance to the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs on Saturday night with a thrilling 3-1 victory over San Jose at the SAP Center. The St. Louis Blues, the Edmonton Oilers, and the New York Rangers are all moving on in their quest to win the coveted Stanley Cup. "If you're going to beat a really good team, you've got to seize those moments and we were unable to". We got blown out and learned lessons from that. Weve been through a push to get into the playoffs, weve played a round now, weve just been through a situation where we had to close out a game to win a series. The Oilers frantically tried to hold on after building the 2-0 lead and had to survive a tense power play after a penalty for too many men on the ice that included Joe Pavelski hitting both the cross bar and post on a shot that almost tied the game. More than 18,000 people paid a $5 admission fee, with proceeds going to charity, to watch the game. “We knew they were going to bring pressure.

Former Anaheim Duck Patrick Maroon thinks the Oilers just need to pick up where they left off against San Jose and they'll be fine. Just one trip to the finals over the last 14 years.

"It's a great feeling in this room right now", said Oilers goalie Cam Talbot, who had another sharp game with 27 saves. "We're a team that usually shows up every night and that wasn't our night". The whole veteran thing is out of the picture now. He's been here long enough, he's been through a lot of battles with this team already. These playoffs are highs and lows.

"That's not the team we are", Draisaitl said. "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". Marc-Edouard is still one of the most underrated players in the league in the outside world. Their defencemen are strong. Then they hope to make a big free agent splash after drafting well. They might fight back.

"We had a number of guys in this series who were ill", said McLellan, adding that Leon Draisaitl was also fighting a flu bug. "It's as courageous an effort as I've ever seen". "We're in the second round, you have to be confident in yourself".

"We were maybe a little comfortable with the lead (2-1 in the series)", said McDavid.

"It's a series ... we lose and you don't know how you lost at times".
