Sharks come home to face Oilers for Game 3
Thornton missed the last three games of the regular season and the first two games of the playoff series with the Oilers.
San Jose's first and only other power play came almost 17 minutes into the scoreless opening period.
Kassian intercepted a weak clearing attempt by Sharks defenceman Dave Schlemko, then slid a backhand shot past goalie Martin Jones to break a scoreless tie at 10:45 of the third period. The only time the Sharks held a lead in the series was when Karlsson scored in overtime for the Sharks in their 3-2 win in Game 1.
Draisaitl started the game at wing on a line with McDavid, but Edmonton coach Todd McLellan adjusted his lines in the second period, moving Draisaitl to centre on Kassian's line. The Sharks utterly outplayed Edmonton in Game 1 at Rogers Place, but a amusing thing happened between that dismal effort last Wednesday and Game 2 on Friday - the Oilers regrouped, like winning teams do. "We came in, got home-ice advantage back, but it'd be nice to come in and play another game like that on Tuesday". The Sharks split the first two games of the series in Edmonton without Thornton. The team also hasn't capitalized on careless play by Edmonton throughout the series, failing to score in 13 of 14 power-play chances.
In fact, they did it quite handily as the Oilers doubled up the Sharks in shots 36-16 in their complete game effort on Friday.
Tal-bot's consecutive shutouts in Games Two and Three were the second in Oilers' history, with only Curtis Joseph previously managing this feat vs. Colorado back in 1998. Forward Zack Kassian actually scored the first Oilers goal shorthanded, too.
For game four, the Sharks are best off taking a new outlook on the offense. The Oilers carried more of the play and outshot the Sharks 12-4. "It's two teams playing tight defensively".

The 2017 iteration of the San Jose Sharks playoff team is one of the most inexplicably poor in terms of execution in recent memory.
"We'll have to get better", he told reporters on Sunday before he left the podium.
A lot was made of the Oilers playoff inexperience, with just 342 combined postseason games under their belt coming in compared to well over 1,000 games for the Sharks, the defending Western Conference champions.
San Jose went on the power play at 16:43 when Edmonton winger Benoit Pouliot was guilty of a rough. "We'll have to take our game up a notch, starting in Game 4". "You just got to work for those bounces and stay confident".
The Sharks got a lift when their spiritual leader, Joe Thornton, returned to the lineup for the first time since injuring his left knee against the Vancouver Canucks on April 2.
Brent Burns, Joe Pavelski, Patrick Marleau, Logan Couture - all 25-plus goal scorers in the regular season - didn't generate many shots either, much to the dismay of the majority of the 17,562 fans that jammed into SAP Center. "This isn't the first team that's tried to be physical on key guys".
"Early on we had some pep", Thornton said.
