Oilers, Sharks tilt has massive Pacific implications

EDMONTON, Alberta -- The Edmonton Oilers and San Jose Sharks both trail the Anaheim Ducks by two points for the Pacific Division lead.

So, Thursday night's encounter between the Sharks and Oilers has massive implications when it comes to the race for top spot. And, the Oilers host the Ducks on Saturday, so this promises to be a massive three-day stretch for Edmonton.

"Our focus is to keep going," Oilers goalie Cam Talbot said. "We're still battling it out for seeds and top spot in the division. Hopefully, we can get a few big wins coming up, and we're playing the teams that are ahead of us. So, any time you can pick up two points against those teams, then we can climb up in the standings and hopefully finish first."
