Martin Jones made 41 saves during Thursday's Game 4 triple overtime loss to Nashville.

Credit Jones for keeping the Sharks in the game, as they looked lethargic at times. Though, perhaps that was just the exhaustion evident during the game-winning tally. The series is now reduced to a best-of-three, with Game 5 on Saturday.

Joonas Donskoi wasn't happy with his performance against Nashville in Game 3 on Tuesday night.

His high-stick on James Neal gave the Predators a four-minute power play, which led to Neal's game-tying goal. A Donskoi turnover resulted in the game winner by Shea Weber in a bit later in the second period. He was demoted to the fourth line in the third stanza. Donskoi is confident that he can bounce back, though.

Marleau was able to skate around Rinne and shoot the puck into an empty net. Unfortunately for the Sharks, that was all they could muster against the Preds goalie on this night. It was the first loss for the Sharks on the road this postseason.
