Sharks Vs. Canucks, Game 5: Patrick Marleau Ties Game For San Jose In Elimination Game

The San Jose Sharks are not going to slink off into the night as they have tied the game at one after forty minutes in their elimination game against the Vancouver Canucks. 

The Sharks tied the game on the power play at the 9:57 mark of the period on a Patrick Marleau goal that was deflected off of Kevin Bieksa's hand and into the net. The Canucks power play seemed confused as Ryan Kesler was injured a few seconds before the goal was scored. Kesler headed back to the Canucks dressing room with an apparent leg injury. Kesler tested the leg later in the period, but his return is uncertain at this point. 

The Sharks offense has continued to outshoot the Canucks, with a 10-6 advantage in the second period and 25-12 advantage in the game. Luongo has played a masterful game thus far with 24 saves in the game while his counterpart in Antti Niemi has 11 saves on the night. 

This game is far from over as the final twenty minutes or more has to decide a winner.
