Pittsburgh split in San Jose and all they need to do is take care of business at home to win their fourth Stanley Cup title and first since 2009. San Jose has never held a lead in regulation so this series has pretty much been a one-sided affair. It starts with the Penguins' defense, which has given up just seven goals in four games. They've also held Sharks' top postseason goal scorer Joe Pavelski scoreless and high-scoring forward Logan Couture to just two assists.
