Dominating first period comes to a close with Pens leading 2-0 and out-shooting San Jose 15-4. Big-time regroup for Sharks needed.

Conor Sheary quickly gives the Penguins a 2-0 lead in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals against the San Jose Sharks. So, the Penguins' first two goals come from two players that began the 2015-16 season in the AHL. Pittsburgh's speed has been a factor against the Sharks in the early going.

Craig Custance ESPN Senior Writer 

Two quick ones for Penguins to open the scoring in the finals and this place is absolutely rocking.

Joe McDonald ESPN Staff Writer 

The Penguins' Bryan Rust has scored the last three goals -- two in Game 7 of ECF against the Tampa Bay Lightning and the first one in Game 1 of the Cup finals -- to lead Pittsburgh. It's his sixth of the 2016 playoffs.

Great pace to this game so far. Both Sharks and Penguins playing with speed. Penguins with advantage so far when Mike Sullivan is able to get Sidney Crosby out against Chris Tierney line as he has early.

Scott Burnside @ESPN_Burnside

Nice pace to start Game 1 SCF. Good pressure from Crosby line but both teams have limited quality chances early on.
