The San Jose Sharks are now winners in all five of their last games, all of which have been on the road. In the penultimate game of their six-game road trip, they took on the New York Islanders and came out ahead in a very close game. The Sharks got things started early, with Joe Pavelski scoring a power play goal to put them up 1-0. But the second period would allow the Islanders to take the lead.
San Jose committed penalties in the second and gave up power play goals to John Tavares and Michael Grabner, but Logan Couture evened it up 13:19 into that second frame with the help of Marc Edouard-Vlasic and Brent Burns. The teams saw a scoreless third period turn quickly to overtime, and a delay of game penalty on Travis Hamonic set the Sharks up with what would be the winning power play.
Burns scored the power play goal in overtime, beating Rick DiPietro with the one-timer to give the Sharks the 3-2 victory. The Sharks will continue their road trip on Monday against the Rangers before finally heading home again. Following the end of the road trip will be a six-game homestand for the Sharks.
