Penguins One Win Away From Stanley Cup After Game 4 Victory Vs. Sharks

The Pittsburgh Penguins are one step closer to hoisting their first Stanley Cup since 2009.

The Penguins took a commanding three-games-to-one lead over the San Jose Sharks in the Stanley Cup Final with a 3-1 win in Game 4 on Monday night.

The Penguins led 2-0 entering the third period thanks to goals by Evgeni Malkin and Ian Cole, but the Sharks made it a one-goal game again after Melker Karlsson struck at the 8:07 mark in the third period. But any chance at a San Jose comeback was wiped away when Eric Fehr scored with just over two minutes remaining.

The Penguins now can clinch the Stanley Cup on home ice with a victory in Game 5 on Thursday.
