What To Watch For From The Oilers
Cam Talbot turned aside 26 shots in last night's 4-0 shutout of the Ducks. Normally I don't advocate going with the goalie for two straight nights, but the club's headed for the All-Star Break and I'm not 100% sold on Laurent Brossoit at the NHL level yet. Can Talbot turn in another top performance?

From Fear The Fin
The Sharks are 2-0 against the Oilers this season and can clinch the season series with a win against Edmonton tonight. A win for Edmonton can move the Alberta squad into the tie for first place, though San Jose will hold a game in hand after playing its 50th game of the season. It took a late tally from Patrick Marleau to give the Sharks their sixth straight victory on Tuesday and even with Hertl back in the lineup tonight I doubt the game will get much prettier.
Tomas Hertl is back after 31 games off with a knee injury.
Patrick Marleau is two goals away from 500.
Don't be that team, Oilers.
