EDMONTON - The Oilers scored a goal at home.

That's a start.

Next will be working on trying to actually score more goals than the opponent, which still appears to be a way away considering the way the Oilers were manhandled in a 3-1 loss to the San Jose Sharks Friday night at Rexall Place.

The Sharks exposed the true size of the gap between the Oilers and the leagues elite.

At the moment, its about 28 teams deep.

The loss dropped the Oilers record to an abysmal 4-15-2 on the season. They've been out-scored 23-3 in the last six games at home, all losses.

Yet, it wasn't all bad for the Oilers.
