Skinner makes 20 saves for first shutout as Oilers blank Sharks

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Stuart Skinner made 20 saves in his first career shutout and the Edmonton Oilers beat the San Jose Sharks 3-0 on Monday night.

Connor McDavid, Darnell Nurse and Warren Foegele scored. Evan Bouchard had two assists.

Former Shark Evander Kane returned to San Jose for the first time with the Oilers and was booed every time he touched the puck. He did not have a point but took four shots on goal.

"I've kind of moved on," Kane said before the game. "I'm happy where I'm at."

Added Oilers coach Jay Woodcroft: "I've been nothing but impressed with Evander Kane

I think he's single-minded in his purpose and that (was) to get a win tonight for the Edmonton Oilers.

James Reimer made 36 saves as San Jose lost its fourth in a row. The Sharks played their first game since Feb. 1 and their first home game since Jan. 22

The Oilers jumped ahead with two goals in the first period. Foegele tipped home his sixth of the season on Edmonton's first shot on goal. Nurse added his fifth goal just 1:05 later.

After a scoreless second period, McDavid scored his 24th early in the third, moving into a tie for second place in the NHL with 64 points
