Sometimes you just step back and say “Wow.” Game 5 is generating plenty of “Wow” moments, yet Martin Jones may have authored the best one so far.
The Pittsburgh Penguins seemed like they were going to tie things up in the second period. You could almost feel things moving in that direction when ultra-dangerous forward Phil Kessel had just a little too much time and space.
He sent a hard shot at Jones, but it was Nick Bonino‘s rebound opportunity that really seemed like it would seal the deal.
Instead, Jones managed to sprawl out and stop Bonino for a jaw-dropper that some are labeling as the stop of the 2016 Stanley Cup Final. At least so far.

Thanks in large part to Jones’ efforts, the San Jose Sharks enter the third period up 3-2. If things continue in their current direction, San Jose may need a little more magic from Jones.
