We've got to find a way, and that's on us. Getzlaf completely took over and registered yet another multi point playoff game.
"We just didn't get that traffic in front of the net, so that was obviously something we tried to do more of today", Silfverberg said.
That experience has this group a little more confident that one bad outing does not decide a series.
It turns out the Oilers' young star might not have been bluffing.
The Oilers have enjoyed good luck by emerging victorious in each of the previous four playoff series in which they have won the first two games on the road, including the 2006 conference final against Anaheim.
Talbot denied the Ducks the lead by catching a hard Hampus Lindholm shot from the top of the circle at 18:36 of the second period. "This is a good time to do that in Game 4". We've dealt with these situations all year long. "I thought I was seeing the puck well tonight". "We can handle the ups and downs".
The 7-0 loss was a painful lesson but Edmonton won the next game, 4-3 in overtime. Since then, he's got four wins. So the series would have been educational regardless of its outcome.
Draisaitl scored an empty-net goal with 1:05 remaining for his fourth point of the game. "We have some experienced guys, we have some unexperienced guys".
This might be the franchise's first playoff appearance in 11 years, but Edmonton has faced adversity already this spring. Edmonton's Connor McDavid scored his first goal of the series. "You never want to fall down 3-0 in any series". That's when McDavid learned a lesson that should serve him well the rest of his career.
Short admits his role in Sunderland relegation
Sunderland have only one win in their last 15 league fixtures and are 12 points adrift of safety with five games left. King turned in a fine individual display to keep the Sunderland back four on its toes throughout.
"The thing we're doing properly is responding to adversity", Getzlaf said.
The Oilers finished off the Sharks in Game 6 in the first round by beating them in San Jose.
And yes, McDavid and the Oilers are well aware of Anaheim's designs. After the Ducks' Patrick Eaves and Jakob Silfverberg each scored 85 seconds apart to erase Edmonton's two-goal lead, the Oilers showed the kind of poise few expected they would be capable of this postseason. "They take it up a notch, you make mistakes and they capitalize". "Certainly they went in there and they dominated that area".
But the Oilers don't care about their opponents' playoff pedigrees. Gibson made five 10-bell stops after two odd ones beat him- a possible stick over the crossbar by Ryan Nugent-Hopkins before another pinballed around before hitting Shea Theodore and going in. We just have to bring it in Game 4. They looked unprepared and were quite suddenly shell-shocked.

Patrick Maroon, who scored the winning goal, went one step further.
Just give these playoff neophytes a chance, and they just might shock the world.
"No lead is comfortable, especially against a team like this, with some really high-end players with the team, with a lot of pride, with a coach that's really experienced, and players that are really experienced", Lucic told reporters. I keep saying that.
"You hope you can capitalize when you get opportunities", said Cogliano.
