The Stanley Cup Finals have been about as close as you can get.
Three games all separated by 1 goal with 2 coming in overtime.
The Sharks finally got themselves on the better end of one of those and will now look to even things up here on Monday.
San Jose Sharks
The Sharks had plenty of chances in Pittsburgh during Games 1 and 2 to steal a win.
Things went against them on both occasions and they knew Game 3 had to be theres. After tying things up in the 3rd, San Jose found the back of the net in overtime to make this a 2-1 series.
San Jose has been dominant this postseason at home, going 8-1 inside the SAP Center over their last 9 there
Martin Jones has been the biggest key for that. He has given the home crowd many nice saves to cheer about, as he has gone 8-2 with a pair of shutouts at home, yielding a GAA of just 1.74.
San Jose has also been dominant on the penalty kill. They have killed off the last 7 short handed attempts. Look for that to continue to be a big key heading into Game 4.
The Penguins have seen Matt Murray grow up right before their eyes this postseason. He’s made big play after big play, but in Game 3, he stumbled up at the worst possible time.
Murray allowed the game tying goal to Joel Ward, one that he certainly should have stopped. Pittsburgh’s netminder has been absolutely dominant in the postseason, not allowing anything cheap or easy up until last game.
However, after a loss, he has been about as good as you can get. Murray has gone 4-0 and turned away 106 of the 114 shots he’s faced on such occasions.
Look for Pittsburgh to continue their theme of peppering the goal. The Penguins have averaged 35.4 shots per game and have outshot the opposition on 12 straight occasions.
It’s been the 2nd and 3rd chances that have given them the most success.
