San Jose Sharks forward Joonas Donskoi seemed like he couldn’t buy a break during certain moments of the 2016 Stanley Cup Final against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Much like some other Sharks players hitting multiple posts, Donskoi kept generating nice chances, yet he couldn’t quite get it done.
It almost seemed a little comical to some at times.
Donskoi kept plugging away, however, and he scored the overtime game-winner in Game 3 while also assisting on a big Joel Ward goal.
Moments like these are about making a legacy: Donskoi’s huge goal already towers over those missed shots, and that will only loom larger over time. He’s the guy who scored the first Stanley Cup Final game-winner in Sharks history, after all.
