This week’s Hockey Happy Hour on NBCSN (5-7 p.m. ET) will feature memorable “on this date” games in playoff history.
Last year on this date, the Sharks and Golden Knights battled to double overtime tied at one goal apiece. Anchored by goaltender Martin Jones’ 58 saves, San Jose avoided elimination when Tomas Hertl scored the winning goal while shorthanded, for a 2-1 road victory. The Sharks would go on to win the series in a memorable Game 7 and advance to Round 2.
Alex Faust and Mike Johnson called the matchup from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev.
During the broadcast, Patrick Sharp details Scott Darling’s memorable 50-save performance in a triple overtime victory for their Blackhawks over the Predators on April 21, 2015.
