PITTSBURGH (AP) — Conor Sheary scored 2:35 into overtime, lifting the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 2-1 win over the San Jose Sharks in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday night and a 2-0 lead in the series.

The Sharks will hope home ice is an advantage on Saturday night in Game 3 when the series shifts to San Jose.

Justin Braun scored with 4:05 left in the third, pulling San Jose into a 1-1 tie after getting a fortunate bounce off the right post after drawing only iron earlier in the game.

Pittsburgh’s Phil Kessel scored midway through the second period, tapping the puck in from the right side of the net after getting set up by Nick Bonino and Carl Hagelin, a line that has combined to contribute 50 points in 20 playoff games.
