Sharks take the Penguins to overtime for 3-2 win in Game 3 of Stanley Cup Final

Sharks take the Penguins to overtime for 3-2 win in Game 3 of Stanley Cup Final

Finnish forward Joonas Donskoi is a rookie, so he can’t be blamed for any of the San Jose Sharks’ playoff shortcomings in recent years. 

Maybe it’s because he bears none of the burden of those failures that he has been able to lead the Sharks to their greatest postseason success in their 25-year history.

Donskoi, aiming high on Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Matt Murray, rifled a shot into the net 12 minutes 18 seconds into sudden-death overtime, lifting the Sharks to a 3-2 victory Saturday before a raucous crowd that endured many emotional shifts during the team’s first-ever Stanley Cup Final home game.
