Penguins Vs. Sharks Overtime Score: Pittsburgh, San Jose Go To Bonus Hockey At 3-3

The Pittsburgh Penguins built a lead on the road, thanks to Evgeni Malkin, but couldn't hold onto it, thanks to Marc-Andre Fleury. And now they will head to overtime against the San Jose Sharks.

Malkin's two goals and an assist paced the Penguins, who held 2-0 and 3-1 leads to end the first and second periods. But the Sharks got goals from Ryan Clowe and Jamie McGinn in the third period, erasing Pittsburgh's lead and sending the game to overtime.

Penguins defenseman Paul Martin has one of two -3 marks on the night, having been on the ice for all three San Jose goals. Sharks defenseman Brent Burns has the other.

Both teams had their fair share of shots in the third period, with Pittsburgh getting 11 and San Jose firing 14 on Fleury. But the Pittsburgh goalie, who has faced 36 shots in the game, allowed two goals, and that was enough to extend the game.
