San Jose center Joe Thornton returned in Game 3 after missing the previous five games with an injury. The Sharks split the first two games of the series in Edmonton without Thornton.
It's nearly as if Oilers fans have experienced so much losing that they forgot how to properly root for their team when its winning.
"We're confident in him back there", Edmonton forward Jordan Eberle said. "Everyone was ready. We've been there. there weren't really any lapses in our game".
Over the lunch hour, Sir Winston Churchill Square will be the site of a community rally organized by the city to allow Edmonton Oilers fans a chance to wear orange in solidarity, showing support for the team ahead of game five of the Stanley Cup playoffs against San Jose Sharks.
The Sharks set three notable franchise playoff records in the win: the seven-goal margin of victory was their largest ever, their four power play goals was the most they've ever scored in a game, and Pavelski's goal just 15 seconds in was the fastest in team history.

Columbus still trail 3-1 in the series, which shifts back to Pittsburgh on Thursday night for Game 5.
"We know we need to win this one going into the next game on the road", centre Chris Tierney said. "And I think, I don't think it's a secret that as our key guys are getting healthier and feeling better, you know, we're starting to look better in that area". It all added up to the most lopsided playoff win in Sharks history and biggest shutout win in the National Hockey League in 10 years.
For the second consecutive game, Cam Talbot had a shutout and Zack Kassian scored the winning goal for the Oilers in the game -3.
"Tonight was a big lesson to learn", McLellan said, per NHL.com. That's not our team, that's not our game. We haven't played like that all year.
Joe Pavalski, Brett Burns, Logan Couture, Patrick Marleau and Jumbo Joe Thornton had the combined total of one point in the first three games.

Cuando el conductor de la Fusion blanca llegó a la ventana a las 11 de la mañana, un empleado lo reconoció como Steve Stephens , el llamado "asesino del Facebook ".
"We've got a big orange sign, we've got flags, we've got insane hair, and so far we've gotten four-and-a-half honks, and we've gotten a few of those gestures that sometimes you get in traffic if you don't behave", said Scheetz. He almost created two goals on one shift, but no teammate was able to get to his wraparound attempt and then Jones stopped him on a one-timer.
Logan Couture, fourth on the team with 25 goals, also hasn't had a point after leading all players with 20 assists and 30 points in the postseason a year ago when San Jose reached the Stanley Cup Final for the first time. He wore a cage to protect his mouth the first two games before going back to the half-visor for Game 3.
The Sharks power play was no great shakes in the regular season, ranked 25th at 16.7 per cent. Sorensen knocked in a rebound midway through the period and Couture ended Talbot's night with a wrister from the circle.
"You can't say enough about him right now", Talbot said of Kassian. (More on that here.) San Jose would ultimately chase Talbot from the Oilers' net on a night where their once-struggling power play went 4-for-8.
Kassian intercepted a weak clearing attempt by Sharks defenceman Dave Schlemko, then slid a backhand shot past goalie Martin Jones to break a scoreless tie at 10:45 of the third period.
