The seventh overtime game of this hyper-dramatic Penguins postseason probably should have ended a half dozen times before it finally did, with both goaltenders compelled to make dazzling saves after inexplicable turnovers by elite players who supposedly know better.

San Joseís Martin Jones stopped Kris Letang, then Matt Murray denied Joe Thornton after a Matt Cullen giveaway, then Jones stoned Evgeni Malkin right there in the middle of the front porth, but on it went.


Finally the Sharks did something they hadnít bothered to do in the Stanley Cup final to this point ó they took a lead, and thereís no better time to do that than in overtime, as the serious hockey students like to say. When that happens, the horn blows and you win. Itís a fine tactic..........

The ice in San Jose was a mess. Even the announcers alluded to how "soft" it was and that the puck was making all kinds of weird bounces.

They said it was in the high 90's outside. Don't know if that makes it harder to keep the ice at the right temperature or not.

At least it didn't look like this :lol:

Soft ice slows down the faster team.

I figured the Sharks were going to get the win on their home ice. Hopefully the Pens bring it back and win it in Pittsburgh.

Nice try bringing out Metallica for the national anthem but only Jimi Hendrix can pull off the anthem on guitar.

As for them being hockey fans, Lars plays tennis :chuckle:
