Pittsburgh Penguins at San Jose Sharks 
SAP Center at San Jose, San Jose, California
 
San Jose Sharks host the Pittsburgh Penguins at SAP Center at San Jose in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals on Saturday night. The Penguins took Game 2 in the Stanley Cup Final with a 2-1 win over the San Jose Sharks. The Penguins leads series, 2-0
 




Oddsmakers
currently have San Jose Sharks listed as 135-moneyline favorites, with the total at 5½.
 
The problem for the Sharks is that they have been a much better road team this season than at home. They had a league best 28 wins on the road, but were the only playoff team to have a losing home record (18-20-3). On the other hand they have certainly flipped the script in the playoffs with a sparkling 7-2 record at home.
 
The Finals thus far have been all about the speed of the Penguins keeping ahead of the tenacity of the Sharks.
 
The Pens have outshot San Jose by a total of 71-48 on the way to winning two one-goal games. They have been full value for the wins, but at the same time it’s a game of inches keeping San Jose from posting their first win of the finals.
 
 One would think that a Sharks team that so far has beaten the Kings with Drew Dougthy, the Predators with Shea Weber, Roman Josi and company and the Blues with Keven Shattenkirk, Jay Bouwmeester and Alex Pietrangelo will find a way to break through.
 
On the other hand a sweep is looking like it has potential when you consider that of the Penguins five goals scored thus far, Phil Kessel has one of them, Sydney Crosby has two assists and Evgeni Malkin is yet to get on the score sheet.
