Joonas Donskoi OT Goal Wins Game 3 For Sharks, Gives Us A Series

For awhile there, it looked like Pittsburgh wasn’t going to lose another game; the Penguins had become a completely different team somewhere around the midway point of their Game 5 loss to Tampa Bay. Thankfully (for neutral hockey fans, at least) San Jose found a goal when it counted, courtesy a Finn named Joonas Donskoi.

That goal, at 12:18 of overtime, gave the Sharks a 3-2 win and brought them within another win of leveling the series. (Let’s note, too, it was Joel Ward’s outstanding goal in the third period that got us to overtime in the first place.)
