Tonight's the third game in the Sharks / Oilers series and it's expected to be a big one. After tying the series 1-1 in Edmonton, the Oilers are coming to San Jose with the fire in the eyes. However, someone is back in the lineup to make sure it doesn't happened. 

We just learned that Joe Thornton is back in the lineup for the game tonight, after missing a good part of April. He was hurt in a wierd sequence back on April 2nd and was day-to-day since then. Tonight, he made a surprise appearence during warmup and he's officially in the roster now! 

He's expected to make the difference following an emotional defeat on Friday.
