The Pittsburgh Penguins will get on the road to San Jose for game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals. The Sharks are down 2-3 in the series and are fighting to keep their championship hopes alive. The Penguins are looking at their second chance to close out the series after they spoiled their first at home during a wild game 5 loss. Watch every goal and power play online below!
Game 5 of this Stanley Cup Series between the Sharks and the Penguins had the most exciting five minutes in the history of the NHL. No seriously, the opening set of goals in the first period in Pittsburgh was absolutely nutso! The Sharks came out strong and scored in the first minute of action. They followed that up with another goal a few minutes later. Just like that it was 2-0 Sharks. But then the impossible happened. The Penguins evened up the score with two goals in 22 seconds. WOW, 4 goals in about the first five minutes of a Stanley Cup playoff — a new record. Crazy.
So who is going to win this huge game 6? The Penguins have 3 Stanley Cup titles under their belt and all have been won on the road. Could history repeat itself? Their last Cup came in 2009 when they beat the Red Wings in Detroit in game 7. The Sharks however are looking for their first ever franchise championship.
If the Sharks can take advantage of home ice and get this win they will then face the difficult task of beating the Penguins in Pittsburgh. Good luck guys. Keep an eye on Penguin team leader Sidney Crosby, 28, and Shark captain Joe Pavelski, 31 in this game. Most goals go through these guys so watch the puck when they are near the action.
