It’s grind time! The chase for Lord Stanley’s cup continues in San Jose when the Sharks host the Pittsburgh Penguins during game 3 of the NHL Finals. Watch the hockey action on June 4th, at 8pm EST online here!
The San Jose Sharks have their hands full against a deep Pittsburgh Penguins team in this high-scoring Stanley Cup Finals series. Neither team has been able to completely shut out the other but the Penguins have clearly dominated thus far. Catch the live stream of game 3 here and don’t miss a single check.
A penguin is actually a flightless bird and a shark is a really scary fish. So who should win this battle? Well, in nature you might put your money on the animal with rows and rows of jagged teeth, the shark. But in the NHL, the Penguins currently have the 2-0 series lead. Pittsburgh has the home ice advantage and took the first two games at home.
This Finals series features the best of the NHL this season. Sidney Crosby, 28, has been getting the job done for the Penguins while the Sharks Captain Joe Pavelski, 31, has been a horse during the playoffs. These teams are relatively well matched despite the series lead held by the Penguins. San Jose defended the net well against against the power play in game 2 and was almost able to leave Pittsburgh with a split but lost game 2 in overtime.
Defense wins championships and that has been the difference in this series so far. The Sharks are looking to get well at home for two games before hopefully heading back to Pittsburgh for game 5. Game 6 would be back in San Jose if necessary and the final game would be back on the Penguins home ice.
