OILERS EVEN SERIES, DOWN SHARKS 2-0
The victory evens the best-of-seven Western Conference quarter-final series at one game apiece. Game 3 goes Sunday night in San Jose.
Kassian scored early in the second period and McDavid notched the insurance goal midway through the third period.
It was a dominant performance by the Oilers and particularly by Kassian, a fourth-line winger.
Kassian drove the net effectively and delivered bone-jarring hits on Sharks' Brenden Dillon and Logan Couture at Rogers Place. By the end of the second period fans were chanting ``Kass-ee-ann! Kass-ee-ann!''
It was a reversal of Game 1, when the Oilers were outshot 44-19 en route to a 3-2 overtime loss.
