PITTSBURGH (AP) The opening act of San Jose's first Stanley Cup appearance was a dud. Brent Burns and the Sharks think the sequel will be much better.
San Jose quickly fell behind during a strong first period for Pittsburgh, but the Sharks rallied in the second before Nick Bonino's third-period goal lifted the Penguins to a 3-2 victory in Game 1 on Monday night.
Tomas Hertl and Patrick Marleau scored in the second for San Jose in the first Cup game in franchise history. Game 2 is Wednesday night in Pittsburgh.
