The third-longest game in San Jose Sharks franchise history ended in a heartbreaking 4-3 triple-overtime loss to the Nashville Predators on Thursday night in Game 4 of their second round playoff series.
Before Game 4, Penguins coach Mike Sullivan was fairly certain no one on his team was going to single-handedly fill the void left by Kris Letang, the Penguins' top defenseman who served a one-game suspension Wednesday night.
The well-traveled defenseman filling in for his team's most indispensable player scored the first goal. The seemingly ageless center closing in on his 40th birthday scored the second. And the winger who makes a living trying to create space for Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby delivered the overtime winner that brought the Penguins within one victory of a spot in the Eastern Conference finals.
Not interested in testing free agency, Panthers forward Jaromir Jagr will continue his legendary career with the Florida Panthers as the parties agreed to terms on another one-year contract Thursday afternoon.
Patric Hornqvist makes a living by working in tight spaces. Given a rare moment of freedom from his usual spot parked in front of the opponent's net, the Pittsburgh Penguins forward pushed the Washington Capitals to the brink of elimination.
