Joonas Donskoi scores sixth of year

The Finn is trying to keep up with Joe Thornton.

Joe Thornton scored goal number eight to open the scoring tonight on a nice give and go with Joe Pavelski.

Not to be outdone, Joonas Donskoi tallied his sixth of the year to make it 2-0 San Jose. You can't be considered a goal scorer if you're outscored by Thornton, so Donskoi has some work to do. The Finn had a nice tip here, but in terms of style points I'm going to give Jumbo the edge.

San Jose holds a 2-1 lead with two minutes to go in the first period but have work to do as the Flames have largely carried play. Shots stand 10-6 Flames.
