3/9/15: San Jose Sharks 2 Pittsburgh Penguins 1 (SO)

1st Sharks Goal (Nieto), Even

  • San Jose Contributions
    B. Smith – chases down Letang behind the Penguins net and knocks the puck away from him to Tierney behind the net
    C. Tierney – pulls the puck out towards the right side behind the goal line and makes a pass through the crease to Nieto at the inside edge of the left faceoff circle
    M. Nieto – takes the pass and fires it in one motion past Fleury’s right pad before he can get across from post to post
  • Pittsburgh Faults
    K. Letang – has the puck behind the Penguins net but loses it as Smith knocks it off of his stick to Tierney
    P. Martin – was following Nieto, then gets caught at the top of the crease when Tierney gets the puck, so he stops there but doesn’t block the passing lane and doesn’t continue covering Nieto, leaving him open to get the pass and score

1st Penguins Goal (Crosby), Even

  • Pittsburgh Contributions
    K. Letang – gets to a bouncing puck in the corner of the Penguins zone and pushes it up to Perron above the faceoff circle
    D. Perron – tries to play the puck out of the zone, has it go off of Braun’s skate and come back to him, then sees Crosby entering the neutral zone and passes it to him at center ice
    S. Crosby – carries the puck into the right side of the Sharks zone as he skates past Karlsson, skates the puck down to the inside of the right faceoff dot, then snaps a backhand shot past Niemi’s blocker into the net
  • San Jose Faults
    M. Karlsson – gets caught skating too close to Perron’s lane, where three other Sharks are defending him, which allows Crosby to get a step through the neutral zone and into the Sharks zone past Karlsson to get down to the dot and get his backhander off
