Before the first TV timeout 4 goals were scored. Quite incredible considering that has usually been a game's worth during this series. And unusual since SJ took their first lead during the course of play and even made it 2-0 before anyone knew what was happening.
Brent Burns opened the scoring, as so many other Sharks goals this series, stepping out from behind the net against Justin Schultz and shooting a puck by Matt Murray , who wasn't hugging the post since it looked like he was worried about the player standing on the doorstep.
And, before you knew it, the Sharks didn't just have a 1-0 lead, they had a 2-0 lead thanks to Logan Couture tipping in a point-shot.
The Penguins didn't lay down themselves, Evgeni Malkin scored on the power play to make it 2-1 off a nice pass from Phil Kessel .

Pittsburgh makes it 2-2 with Carl Hagelin going to the net and deflecting in a Nick Bonino shot.

Finally, time for the first TV timeout.
But SJ strikes again, Couture makes a nifty pass back to Melker Karlsson and he flicks it by Murray.
The Pens put a ton of shots and great chances on Martin Jones, but somehow that didn't work.
Game over, Sharks win. The Penguins have to go back to California for Game 6 on Sunday night. Not ideal, but there's only one team that can win the Cup then too.
