There’s still life in the San Jose Sharks, and they’ll look to even up the Stanley Cup finals when they face the Pittsburgh Penguins for Game 4 on June 6. HollywoodLife.com wants you to see this epic match so click to watch.
After dropping the first two games to the Pittsburgh Penguins, the San Jose Sharks came roaring back in the 2016 Stanley Cup Finals. Will the Sharks continue to munch on the Pens, or will Pittsburgh push San Jose one step closer to elimination?
The Sharks will hope to get another hometown bump when they host the Penguins from the SAP Center in beautiful San Jose, California. Game 4 of the NHL Finals could be the equalizer that San Jose needs to tie the series. The game kicks off at 8:00 P.M. EST, and the action should be so hot, it’ll melt the ice!
The Sharks’ Martin Jones, 26, was a monster during Game 3, registering a .952 save percentage, according to USA Today. The Penguins have outshot the Sharks, 113-74, during the series. Yikes. In Game 4, Martin will need to be a human brick wall if his team wants any chance of winning the NHL’s championship. Show the world you’re a shady shark by getting an official San Jose hat here.
Though they’ve taken a 2-1 lead in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the stars on the team have been kind of quiet. Sidney Crosby, 28, and Evgeni Malkin, 29, have been held without a goal so far, and coach Mike Sullivan, 48, is waiting for Evgeni to wake up. “He’s been a big part of our success,” Mike tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
“But I know that there is another level there to help us win,” Mike said. Can the Pens tap into that “another level” and take the win? Or will Sidney just wind up with his helmet getting punched off, yet again? Show your Pittsburgh Pride with an official Penguins hat.
Sidney and Evgeni may want to take the night off. San Jose are the favorites for game 4, since they’re 8-1 in their last nine home games and have a 11-1 record at home against the Penguins, per SB Nation. However, the Pens are an unbelievable 17-1 in 18 games coming off a loss, so it seems losing motivates the Penguins to win. If they take Game 4, the Penguins will head home with just one win away from the Stanley Cup.
Will Joonas Donskoi, 24, score the game-winning goal again? Can Pittsburgh’s right winger Phil Kessel, 28, hold off the Shark attack? Who will head back to Pittsburgh with the crucial momentum? There’s only one way to find out.
Who do you think is going to win this game, HollywoodLifers?
