PITTSBURGH (AP) — Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final between the San Jose Sharks and Pittsburgh Penguins.
Nick Bonino scored with 2:33 left to help the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the San Jose Sharks 3-2 in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday night.

San Jose's Martin Jones had 38 saves, but couldn't get in front of Bonino's shot, which was made possible by Kris Letang's pass from behind the net.
