The beauty of jumping out to such a fast start was that the Edmonton Oilers, with a couple of well-placed victories over the San Jose Sharks, could bury them almost for good in the Pacific Division.

Alas, there’s a reason they’d want to put the Sharks as far in the rearview mirror as possible. It is because the Sharks own the Oilers — they gave up just one point to Edmonton in five games last season — and that continued Tuesday with their 6-3 pasting as they met for the first time during the 2019-20 season.

It was the first time all season the Oilers gave up three goals in the first period, and the first time they’ve been beaten up like this, trailing by scores of 4-0 and 5-1. Edmonton gave up six goals only once before this season, a year in which they’ve reined in their goals against considerably.

So this was an aberration. In the end, the Oilers split a two-game road trip, after having handled the Anaheim Ducks in a similar fashion, winning 6-2 on Sunday.

Sometimes you get the bear, sometimes the bear gets you. The Oilers end their first 20-game segment at 12-7-2, good for 26 points and first place in the Pacific.

You don’t like the way the first-quarter finishes, but 12-7-2? Any team in hockey would take a first-quarter record like that.

The Big Takeaway

Edmonton Oilers sink against San Jose Sharks

  Edmonton Oilers sink against San Jose Sharks The Oilers have lost five straight against the Sharks.The Sharks were in complete control of the first period.

I think that always brings out your best game, especially with David Desharnais scored at 18:15 of overtime to complete Edmonton's comeback. The Oilers outshot the Sharks 14-2 in overtime.

Hey, there’s not much to take away from a game like this, other than the old standard: you win some, you lose some.

Did the Oilers lose some focus having their mothers along on the moms trip? That would sound very much like an excuse.

“We weren’t ready,” Leon Draisaitl told reporters in San Jose after the game. “They start really strong here at home … and we weren’t ready.

“We just got outplayed today, We were sloppy.”

More likely, the Oilers couldn’t match San Jose’s hunger and desperation. If the Sharks lost to Edmonton in regulation, they would have been 13 points behind them in the Pacific, with a meeting back at the Shark Tank next Tuesday. San Jose is already in desperate times at 8-10-1. They needed this game, where Edmonton only wanted it — or so goes the theory.

“I saw a team that was desperate and trying to get back in the race,” Oilers head coach Dave Tippett said to reporters in San Jose.

Edmonton Oilers recall Caleb Jones, who can give them more of what they need

  Edmonton Oilers recall Caleb Jones, who can give them more of what they need This in from the Edmonton Oilers, news that Brandon Manning is going on injured reserve with a broken hand and Caleb Jones has been recalled from Bakersfield. My take Injury brings change and opportunity. We saw that when Adam Larsson went out and Ethan Bear stepped up in such a big way. I expect to see the same now with Manning out and Caleb Jones getting his chance. If used correctly, there’s no reason why Jones won’t knock it out of the park. Jones will give the Edmonton Oilers more of what they need: fast and alert puck-moving out of the defensive zone. It’s this kind of rapid puck-moving that is the best defence against heavy hockey and aggressive cycling.

“And a team that was content with where they’re at. The desperate team usually wins that game.”

Alas, Mike Smith didn’t have a prayer on any of the first three goals, and we’re not blaming him for No. 4, 5 or 6 either. This was a team loss of a 20-man proportion, with lots of close-in deflections and open looks for the Sharks. We’re sure even Mikko Koskinen had a lousy game on the bench.

“We got outcompeted by a desperate team. It wasn’t a good effort by our team, right through,” Tippett said. “It shows the immaturity of the group. We’re trying to become a really good team and we’re not there yet.”

The points keep coming for the NHL’s leading scorer Draisaitl, who had a goal and an assist. He now has 15 goals and 21 assists for 36 points in the season’s opening 20 games, 10 of those coming on the power play.

Draisaitl has 11 multi-point game, tops in the NHL this season, and is running a 10-game points streak. He was the only player in the NHL who had 50 goals and 100 points last season — he had 105 — and through 20 games he’s on pace for 62 goals and 148 points.

What’s Next

Edmonton comes home for games against Colorado (Thursday) and Dallas (Saturday), then hits the road on Monday for a five-game roadie that begins right back in San Jose.

Edmonton Oilers GM Ken Holland happy with season so far .
Are the Oilers for real? Are they, finally, a good hockey team? "We've come a long way since the start of training camp. Lots more to go," said general manager Ken Holland in an interview with Oilers Now host Bob Stauffer."The elite teams, they go on run in the playoffs. The good teams, they make the playoffs. First order of business is to keep our foot on the pedal. We have to find a way to play our way into the playoffs."Then we have to make some noise in the playoffs," said Holland.So the general manager is taking the wait-and-see approach, but the numbers to this point are impressive.
