1-10-17 Edmonton Oilers (Sharks 5, Oilers 3)
1-11-17 Calgary Flames
(1) San Jose – 50 points
(3) Edmonton – 49 points
(4) Calgary – 46 points
With Edmonton just 1 point behind San Jose and Calgary looking to show their potential as a playoff contender, San Jose’s trip to Alberta this week is critical in the Pacific, especially as the official halfway point of the season.
Mildly interesting: Calgary does not venture south of the Canadian border during the month of January.
Boedker scored a hat trick.
