Recap: Edmonton vs. San Jose

Edmonton, AB (Sports Network) - Dan Boyle scored the winner in the shootout as the San Jose Sharks took a 4-3 win over the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday.

With the final shot, Boyle dipped his shoulder then skated to the right before stuffing the puck past a sprawled-out Devan Dubnyk for the win.

Logan Couture had two goals while Tommy Wingels also scored for the Sharks, who had dropped six of seven coming in. Antti Niemi posted 24 saves in the win.

"Any time you can get points its big," said Couture. "You know that games come in bunches in this month and next month as well, so we've got to find a way to get points every single night."

Sam Gagner, Shawn Horcoff and Ryan Jones all lit the lamp for the Oilers, who had won three of four coming in. Dubnyk stopped 31 shots in the loss.

The Oilers had taken a 3-1 lead 4:07 into the third when Jones stole the puck behind the net and tucked it in from the right side on a wraparound, but the Sharks rallied for the next two.

Less than three minutes later on the power play, Couture and Boyle worked the puck after a scrum in front with Couture's one-timer from the right circle finding the back of the net.

It was a tie game at the 9:15 mark as Wingels' quick shot from the top of the left circle off a turnover beat Dubnyk.

"We knew that they weren't going to give up," said Jones. "Unfortunately a couple of bounces that ended up in the back of net for them. We just haven't played that well with the lead it seems and it was just one of those games where I thought we deserved the two points."

Gagner scored the first goal of the game at the 10:47 mark of the first period while on the power play with a big blast from the left circle, but the Sharks tied it up with 5:41 to play on Couture's first goal of the game, a stuff in front of the net.

Edmonton made it a 2-1 game at the 12:07 mark of the second as Nick Schultz took a lead pass coming out of the penalty box and from the left side he fed it across the goalmouth where Horcoff shot it in.
