EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) - Everyone knew the San Jose Sharks had a potent offense. Vesa Toskala has proven that they can with low-scoring games too.

Toskala and the Sharks try to take a commanding 3-0 series lead on the Edmonton Oilers when the teams continue their best-of-seven semifinal series Wednesday.

San Jose has won six straight games, yielding one goal or fewer in five of those wins. The fifth-seeded Sharks have posted three straight 2-1 triumphs, starting with their clincher against Nashville in the quarterfinals and continuing with the first two games of their series with the eighth-seeded Oilers.

The latest victory came Monday in Game Two behind 24 saves by Toskala and goals by defenseman Tom Preissing and Joe Thornton. The goal for Thornton was his first in 15 playoff games, dating to April 15, 2003, when he still played for the Boston Bruins.

Sergei Samsonov scored the lone goal for the Oilers, who are 0-7 all-time when trailing two games to none in playoff series. Each one of Edmonton's eight contests this postseason has been decided by two goals or fewer.

The Oilers' main concern entering the playoffs was thought to be goaltending, but veteran Dwayne Roloson has played more than well in net. He made 36 saves on Monday and has turned aside 285 of 306 shots this postseason.

Game Four is here on Friday.
