The Sharks and Oilers get their first-round series started at 7 p.m. PT in Edmonton. Game one is held at Rogers Place, the brand new building’s first playoff game in its first season. It’s also Edmonton’s first postseason game since the 2006 playoffs.

We still don’t know if Logan Couture or Joe Thornton will play tonight, though it sounds like Couture will and Thornton will not based on the latest rumors. Tonight’s lines are courtesy of Friend of the Blog Kevin Kurz and can be found at the bottom of the post.

If you’re not in the San Jose area you can find the game on USA Network.

Martin Jones and Cam Talbot will get the starts in net tonight for the Sharks and Oilers, respectively. Based on the lines projected by Kurz, it looks like Couture will center the top line while the anti-Connor McDavid line, centered by Tomas Hertl, will slot in as the second group. We’ll see how that all works out.
