Forty-five seconds into the game, Brent Burns took a hard shot from top of the right circle which goalie blocked but the rebound went to Joonas Donskoi. He backhanded a shot in to a wide-open net. Just seven minutes later, Leon Draisaitl made a cross crease pass from the left of Martin Jones to his right to wide open Connor McDavid and he shot it in the net. Game tied at one. Just couple of minutes later, Joe Thornton made a perfect pass from behind the net to Marcus Sorenson in front of the net. Sorensen one timed it in the top far corner to put the Sharks on a 2-1 lead.
Just couple of minutes into the second period, while the Sharks were on a power-play, Timo Meier tried to make a pass to Burns but it was intercepted by Kyle Brodziak giving him a two-on-one breakaway with Connor McDavid on his left. Burns was in the middle but couldn’t prevent the pass from Brodziak to McDavid for a one time shot that beat Jones on the short side and tied the game at 2. One minute left in second period, Logan Couture stick-handled the puck around the defender and got a shot off from bottom of the left circle on the goalie’s far side above his glove hand. Sharks were back in the lead 3-2.
Just four minutes into the third period, McDavid made another pass from low in the left circle to Drake Caggiula in the middle. Caggiula’s one time shot beat Martin Jones to his left hand and tied the game at 3.
Just fifty seconds into overtime, McDavid made a cross crease pass from Martin Jones left to his right which bounced off of Draisaitl’s skate and into the net.
