It was a nail biter from start to finish, but the Sharks managed to come away with their third straight victory tonight in Boston.

Joe Pavelski opened the scoring only 48 seconds into the game:

The Bruins tied the game a few minutes later and got themselves a one goal lead on their first powerplay. Fortunately, Joonas Donskoi was able to score to tie the game before the end of the first period.

The two teams traded goals early in the second period, with Melker Karlsson getting his second of the season:

The Sharks then pulled ahead on the second of back to back powerplays. The Patrick Marleau goal puts him only one point away from having 1,000 career points:

Joe Thornton scored a powerplay goal of his own to put the Sharks up 5-3:

The Bruins scored on a powerplay halfway through the third to cut the Sharks lead to one. The Bruins' PP has been very good this season, at 33% coming into this game, and they were 2/3 tonight, improving their record.

The Sharks killed a penalty late and got a powerplay of their own with 3 minutes left. Combined with a fantastic save from Martin Jones, this was enough to seal the win.
