Pittsburgh is on the verge of an NHL Stanley Cup as they take the 3-1 series lead with the 3-1 road victory at San Jose in Game 4 as a +112 underdog. For the fourth straight time in this series the total fell under 5 ½ goals. The story of this Finals series has been the goaltending by the Pittsburgh Penguins. In regulation play the Sharks have been held to just two goals or less in each of the four games thus far. Pens rookie goaltender Matthew Murray improved his playoff record to 14-3 as he turned away 23 of 24 Sharks shots. In the past the Penguins have been playoff disappointments with the erratic play by Marc Andre Fleury. The veteran goaltender has now been regulated to backup duty and will probably play for a new team next season. For the fourth straight time in this series the Penguins scored the first goal of the game. They were up 2-0 after two periods but the Sharks got within a goal as Melker Karlsson scored at even strength at 8:07 of the third period. Pittsburgh got the huge insurance goal as Eric Fehr scored at 17:58 to seal it. The Penguins speed has given problems to the Sharks. San Jose goalie Martin Jones had just 17 saves but turned away quality shots by Pittsburgh to keep the Sharks within range. The Penguins have won each game at home in this series winning 3-2 in Game 1 then earning the 2-1 overtime victory in Game 2.
