Sharks vs. Oilers Game Three: Lines, gamethread and where to watch

Welcome to my nightmare.

The Sharks and Oilers square off at 7 p.m. PT at SAP Center for the first San Jose home game of the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. San Jose and Edmonton split the first two games of the first round series and both teams enter game three looking to take the lead entering game four on Tuesday.

Joe Thornton remains a gametime decision, but it sounds like he’ll draw into the lineup for the first time this season. If he does, expect Timo Meier to be the odd man out. That should be the only change to the lineup after the Sharks’ 2-0 loss on Friday.
