Sharks C Logan Couture had been out since taking a puck to the face March 25 in Nashville, but was good to go for Game 1. However, having won three of the five regular season games against the Sharks and entering the postseason on a tear, pulling off the upset will nearly certainly be a hard task for San Jose. Outside of Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl, Oscar Klefbom and Milan Lucic, not many Oilers had a great game on Wednesday. He coached the Sharks through 540 regular-season games and 62 playoff matches. Even the long-slumbering Mikkel Boedker and Jannik Hansen were strong, as was the checking line of Chris Tierney, Timo Meier and Marcus Sorensen, which generated several good scoring chances.
Blues star Vladimir Tarasenko was quiet for most of the night until he drove into a crowd and threaded a pass through the Wild defence to Edmundson, who knocked in the second post-season goal of his career.

Since Edmonton won the draft lottery in 2015 and selected the Toronto native No. 1, McDavid has been at the center of the organization's turnaround, leading the Oilers to their first playoff appearance since 2006.
"At the end of the day it's still hockey", McDavid said. With the Sharks making playoff appearances ten out of the last eleven seasons proves their ability to perform in playoff action.
"We are going to keep it and rules of the contest are you have to keep it at least a year and it had to be 75 percent teal", said Robert Beech of Los Gatos. "It was by committee and by whoever's on the ice getting the job done and if we have the puck, they don't have it".
"For me that's part of experiencing this as a team", said head coach Todd McLellan, who got short-handed goals from Zack Kassian and Connor McDavid and a shutout from Cam Talbot in evening the series 1-1. "I thought we created some chances", DeBoer said of his power play. San Jose's power play was ranked 25th in the National Hockey League in the regular season at 16.7 percent. Sharks C Joe Thornton, who has been nursing a knee issue over the last week, was not able to go. This time the Oilers kept the pressure, outshooting the Sharks 36-16 and outhitting them 41-21.
The first period of the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs couldn't have gone better for the Edmonton Oilers.
In score close situations at even strength, the Sharks have accounted for 55.8% of the shot attempts (48-38), according to Natural Stat Trick.
"Last year I made every single playoff game, every home game except the final game so I blame myself for not winning the cup", said Maria Habiger of Campbell. "There's a lot of newness to both organizations". Jones solidified himself last season as the undisputed starter for the Sharks but has shown poor efforts down the stretch. The Sharks' window to win a Stanley Cup, meanwhile, might be closing as this veteran bunch lost last year's Finals in six games to Pittsburgh. Lucic, who assisted on Klefbom's goal, added a power play goal at the 17:07 mark.
