Entering April, the last Sharks win was against the Edmonton Oilers, a single win in the month's final five games (1-2-2). To begin the new and final month of regular season hockey, San Jose faced that same Oilers team, a squad undoubtedly looking for revenge in the division rivals last meeting. Edmonton is not among the group of Western Conference teams vying for a playoff spot. But as the Sharks have learned this year, the quality of opponent is always high when Teal is in the other locker room.
Visiting media continues to acclimate to California hockey.

Baseball season brings a bit of sports viewing competition to Bay Area sports fans.
Taylor Hall is left alone and bad things happen.
Hall shot beats Niemi on the Oilers power play and it's tied 1-1 w/ 7:26 to play in the 1st.— San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) April 2, 2014
But then good things are not far behind as Dan Boyle continues to ride his goal-scoring streak.
Boyle gets his third goal in three games after going 30 without and #SJSharks regain lead, 1-0.— David Pollak (@PollakOnSharks) April 2, 2014

And the Sharks continue a streak of Miami University Alumni scoring as Tommy Wingels got in on the action just as the power play expired.

A story of two periods... The Sharks led 3-1 after getting outshot 9-6 in the first period. Then the Oilers tied things in the second frame, 3-3, after getting outshot 17-9.
Mike Brown vs. Mark Fraser is basically a battle between the ghosts of Oilers futility past and present.— Fear The Fin (@fearthefin) April 2, 2014
