On the San Jose Sharks podcast with Len Shapiro:

#1 The San Jose Sharks are in Edmonton today at Rexall Center to face the Oilers, who started out with a 9-2-2 record under head coach Ken Hitchcock, but have since lost four straight games. What has been the reason for the slight drop?

#2 Hitchcock, a noted successful coach in previous tilts with other NHL clubs. This has to be just as much as surprise for him as anyone else, but teams do go in a funk, but it’s not a good wear for him.

#3 The Oilers can rebound though they have some potent players and Connor McDavid is no exception with six goals and 20 points in the month of December in 11 games.

#4 The Sharks are coming off a much-needed win against the Anaheim Ducks last Thursday at SAP Center. The Sharks before Thursday had a three-game losing streak going.

#5 The Sharks (20-12-7) are in Edmonton today against the Oilers (18-16-3). How do you see this matchup as the Oilers should be fired up after losing four straight games?
