|(6/9/16) Jones was the star for the Sharks in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals on Thursday, making 44 saves on 46 shots in a 4-2 victory over the Penguins.|
With the Penguins looking to close out the series on home ice and dominating while they were at it -- they outshot the Sharks by a ridiculous 46-21 margin -- Jones was the difference, forcing the series to Game 6 by making an incredible number of awe-inspiring saves. His teammates did stake him to an early 2-0 lead, which he promptly gave back within two minutes or so, but after that, Jones played the part of an impenetrable fortress. That said, he's going to have an awfully hard time gaining two more wins if the Sharks keep getting outplayed as dramatically as they were in this game. Still, they're headed home with happy faces and plentiful momentum heading into Game 6 on Sunday, when Jones will surely once again be protecting the net.
