Draisaitl picked up a power-play assist and an even-strength assist in Thursday's 4-3 overtime Game 5 win over the Sharks.

Draisaitl contributed his first two points of the series one game after his night ended early with a game misconduct for spearing San Jose's Chris Tierney. The 21-year-old forward's first helper came on a Mark Letestu goal with the extra man late in the second period, while his second set up David Desharnais' game-winner 18:15 into the first overtime. Draisaitl's first career postseason had been quiet until this game, but his 77-point regular season suggested it was only a matter of time until he got back on track.
