Gameday Thread: Sharks vs. Oilers

We're right back at it.

Thearon W. Henderson

The Sharks conclude their miniature season-opening road trip by taking on the Oilers in Edmonton tonight at 7PM. San Jose appears to be going with the same lineup that defeated Calgary 4-1 on Sunday while Ben Eager will be replaced in the Oilers' lineup with Magnus Paajarvi after getting his face busted open by Zack Kassian. Here's some pre-game reading to get you caught up before puckdrop:

Prediction: Sharks 3, Oilers 2 on goals from Joe Pavelski, Tommy Wingels and Justin Braun. And there's no way in hell Nail Yakupov doesn't score his first NHL goal tonight. Go Sharks.
