Pittsburgh is up 2-0 in this series as it heads to San Jose for the next two games. The Sharks once again fell behind as they go down 1-0 in the second period. But for the second straight game the Sharks tied the score and failed to get a game winner. San Jose gave up a late third period goal in Game 1. In Game 2 it was Pittsburgh scoring the game winning goal 2:35 into overtime as Conor Sheary beat Martin Jones. The Penguins again had the most shots as they outshoot the Sharks by a 30-22 margin. The rookies stole the headlines for the Penguins in Game 2. Goalie Matthew Murray is now 13-3 in the playoffs as he stopped 21 of 22 San Jose shots. It was Sheary a rookie for the Penguins with the overtime game winner. Martin Jones dropped his playoff record to 12-4 as he turned away 28 of the 30 Penguins shot on net. It was the fourth time in six overtime periods that Pittsburgh prevailed. Since the calendar turned to 2016 it is the Pittsburgh Penguins who have been playing the best hockey in the league. Like in Game 1 it was Pittsburgh controlling the play. They have a definite skate advantage. The team for years has always had that but this year they have a solid net-minder between the pipes that has not given up soft goals like Marc Andre Fleury has done in the post season in the past. The San Jose Sharks are 7-2 at home in the playoffs. They have a Game 7 victory on home ice in the playoffs as they defeated Nashville in the second round 5-0.
