Sharks Trying To Even Series
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Nick Bonino has come up with another huge goal in the Stanley Cup playoffs. The Pittsburgh Penguins took Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final by beating San Jose 3-2 on Bonino's goal with 2:33 remaining. Bonino has provided four goals and 16 points in the postseason, including the series-winner in overtime against Washington in the second round. He also had a goal and an assist in the Penguins' crucial victory in Game 6 of the conference finals against Tampa Bay after Pittsburgh fell behind three games to two in the series. The Pens appeared ready to rout the Sharks after rookies Bryan Rust and Conor Sheary scored 62 seconds apart in the first period. The goals came in a dominant period in which the Penguins outshot the Sharks 15-4. But the Sharks entered the second intermission in a 2-2 tie after Brent Burns set up goals by Tomas Hertl and Patrick Marleau. San Jose netminder Martin Jones kept the score close, making 17 of his 38 saves in the final period. Matt Murray stopped 24 shots for the Penguins, who host Game 2 tonight.
