It had been a while.
Oscar Klefbom opened the scoring for Edmonton in Game 1 versus the San Jose Sharks, giving the Oilers — and their fans — their first playoff goal since 2006.
The last Oilers player to score a post-season goal? That would be Fernando Pisani in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final, which the Oilers lost to the Hurricanes 3-1.
Klefbom changed that, as his pass in front deflected in off a San Jose defender and through the legs of Martin Jones.
The Oilers went into the intermission with a 2-0 lead after a power play goal from Milan Lucic.
