Pittsburgh Penguins Hockey - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

PITTSBURGH (AP) – The Pittsburgh Penguins are halfway to their second Stanley Cup since 2009.

Conor Sheary scored at 2:35 of overtime to give the Penguins a 2-1 victory over San Jose and a 2-0 series lead in the Stanley Cup finals. Phil Kessel’s 10th postseason goal gave the Penguins an early 1-0 lead. But the Sharks tied it on Justin Braun’s goal with 4:05 left in regulation.

Game 2s of the Stanley Cup Final have traditionally been pivotal, and lately three periods haven’t been enough.

The team that has won the second game of the seven-game series has ended up hoisting the Cup nearly 74 percent of the time since 1939, when the Final expanded to the current format.
