The Sharks went up 2-0 late in the Second Period after a brutal play by Chris Kunitz and a Patric Hornqvist goal that was overturned. The Penguins felt dead and the crowd was out of it. It looked like the Penguins were about to play their third consecutive shit game in a row and to top it off, Olli Maatta and Derrick Pouliot went down to the locker room during the Second so the Pens were down to 4 defensemen.
The 3rd period felt like the 2015-16 Pittsburgh Penguins in so many ways. Evgeni Malkin blasted one from the slot 6:47 into the 3rd to cut the Sharks lead to 2-1. Patric Hornqvist killed someone and then Scott Wilson cut straight to the net, went backhand and scored to tie it. Patric Hornqvist then would break Sharks fans hearts for the 2nd time in 4 months by scoring the winner on a Power Play with just 5:58 to go. Marc-Andre Fleury was very good again, stopping 32 of 34 shots.
