Although these teams split in the regular season, San Jose won their game on the road. Joe Pavelski and Joe Thornton lead an extremely talented team. Goaltender Martin Jones has recorded three shutouts in the last seven games and will be the difference against rookie Matt Murray, who could be a little nervous in his first Stanley Cup game.
