Sharks vs. Predators, Game 2: Joe Thornton, Joe Pavelski join the round two party

Joe Thornton set up Joe Pavelski and scored what ended up as the game-winner. Game one was all about the second line. Joonas Donskoi, Logan Couture and Joel Ward provided the goods to put the Sharks up 1-0 in the second round series. The trio played well again on Sunday evening, but the game two victory belongs to the Joes. Joe Thornton scored what ended up as the game-winner into an empty net, and it was Jumbo's pass that set up Joe Pavelski for the second goal of the night.
