Penguins Take Game Two in Overtime
The Pittsburgh Penguins took Game 2 from the San Jose Sharks thanks to an overtime goal by Conor Sheary to win the game 2-1.
Pittsburgh's game-winner came on a called play by superstar Sydney Crosby who won a crucial face-off, getting the puck out to Kris Letang. Letang faked a shot and passed to Conor Sheary near the net who got the puck past Sharks goaltender Martin Jones.
"It's pretty surreal," Sheary said.
Sheary has scored in both Stanley Cup Finals games thus far and has been the main x-factor for the Penguins having a 2-0 lead.
"We did a good job of playing well here at home," Crosby said. "We know it's going to get challenging going to San Jose."
San Jose now gets set to host their first ever Stanley Cup Final game this weekend and try to make this series competitive.
"Game 1 was decided in last two minutes, tonight was decided in overtime," Sharks coach Peter DeBoer said. "We'll hold off on the funeral."
