That would be the only goal for the first period. San Jose Sharks will take a 1-0 lead after the first period.
In the second period, the Avalanche score twice to take the lead. The Avs first goal came off of a deflection by Gabriel Landeskog on a shot from the point by Tyson Barrie.

Colorado would add onto their lead in the third period. Matt Nieto added his third goal of the playoffs. Nieto put the puck in the back of the net on his backhand on a very gritty type of effort.

Except, San Jose got back within one on a Power Play goal by Brent Burns with ten seconds left in the game. Unfortunately, it was too late for the Sharks to tie the game up.
