(San Jose, CA) -- The San Jose Sharks are within two games to one in the Stanley Cup finals after rallying for a win against Pittsburgh Saturday night.

Joonas Donskoi scored 12:18 into overtime to give the Sharks a 3-2 triumph over the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins. Donskoi took the puck from behind the Pittsburgh net and skated into the slot before rifling a shot just underneath the crossbar.

The Sharks extended the game by netting a pair of tying goals, the last coming from Joel Ward with 11:12 remaining in regulation.

Ben Lovejoy and Justin Braun traded goals 4:05 apart in the first period before Patric Hornqvist gave the Penguins a 2-1 lead in the final minute of the second period.

Martin Jones stopped 40 shots for the Sharks, who host Game 4 on Monday.
