Posted By: Lisa Donovan on 6/5/2016

San Jose and Pittsburgh was exciting early once again. Ben Lovejoy scored the first goal of the game. Joe Thornton got the puck to Justin Braun. The Sharks outhit the Penguins 17-9 in the first period. San Jose was the faster team and the more aggressive team unleashing more hits throughout the entire game.

Ben Lovejoy dished an assist late in the second period to Patric Hornqvist. That put Pittsburgh up 2-1 after two periods.

Joonas Donskoi had an assist to Joel Ward late in the third period. That tied the game at 2. San Jose won 3-2 in overtime because Donskoi scored the game-winning goal.

Pittsburgh outshot San Jose 42-26. The Sharks won the hits battle 47-17 while winning 52 percent of the face offs while playing more aggressive. The Sharks were sloppy on offense with 25 give aways. Both teams provided pros and cons in this critical game 3. San Jose came out on top on Saturday and looks to build on that when they host game 4 of the 2016 Stanley Cup Finals.
