Stunner: Justin Braun sends Game 2 into overtime

14 Comments

As much as the Pittsburgh Penguins were taking it to the San Jose Sharks during most of Game 2, there was that sneaking feeling that the Sharks were just a bounce or two away.

That suspicion ended up being justified as the Penguins couldn’t make their 1-0 goal lead stick, even though they generated plenty of chances.

A Justin Braun shot made its way through traffic and maybe took a bounce or two before beating Matt Murray with mere minutes remaining in the third period of Game 2.

That goal, which you can see above, made it 1-1 and helped to send this contest to overtime, the first bit of beyond-regulation play of the 2016 Stanley Cup Final.

Braun enjoyed a nice moment during what has certainly been a trying time off the ice.

This is the first overtime contest since the 2014 championship round, by the way.
