Stanley Cup Playoffs: Sharks shut out Golden Knights to even series

May 3 (UPI) — The San Jose Sharks tied their Stanley Cup playoff series against the Vegas Golden Knights with a 4-0 win in Game 4.

Vegas entered the series undefeated in the 2018 hockey postseason. The Sharks trailed 1-0 in the series before beating the Golden Knights in Game 2. Vegas won 4-3 in Game 3, before Wednesday’s bout at SAP Center in San Jose, Calif.

Marcus Sorensen got the scoring started in Game 4. He lit the lamp in 15:37 into the first period, dangling in front of the net, before flipping the puck past Marc-Andre Fleury. Joonas Donskoi added a second goal 4:17 later, giving the Sharks a 2-0 edge entering the second period.

Tomas Hertl gave his team a three-goal advantage 5:35 into the bridge period. Joe Pavelski made the score final, scoring the lone goal of the third period on a power play with 8:17 remaining.

Martin Jones saved 34 shots for the clean sheet.

“It was a good game for everyone. It was probably our most complete game of the series,” Jones told reporters.

“When we make them come through us … 200 feet through all five guys, we are a lot tougher team to play against.”

Game 5 of the Western Conference series is at 10 p.m. Friday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev.
