Fisher’s rebound goal at 11:12 of the third overtime gave Nashville a 4-3 win over the Sharks in Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals, tying the best-of-seven series 2-2.
Pavelski appeared to score at 7:34 of the first overtime, but the goal was waved off because of goaltender interference after he crashed into Pekka Rinne.
On Fisher’s winner, Sharks goalie Martin Jones stopped a backhander by Colin Wilson only to see the puck go to Fisher.
San Jose missed a good scoring opportunity when Nashville captain Shea Weber went to the box for high sticking with 2:03 left in the second OT.
The Sharks had a mad scramble in front of Rinne with piles of bodies from both teams, but couldn’t score four minutes into the first OT.
 Rinne made an acrobatic pad save, stealing a goal from the Sharks on a breakaway six minutes into the first OT.
Rinne made a lunging pad save on Thomas Hertl from a sharp angle with 1:40 left in the first OT.
The Sharks were in position to win in regulation, but James Neal changed that when he scored on a rebound at 15:39 of the third period.
The puck went under the crossbar after the Predators had hit iron three times earlier in the game.
Brent Burns’ power-play goal had given the Sharks a 3-2 lead at 6:48 of the third as the Norris Trophy finalist scored on a one-timer behind the left face-off circle.
Wilson tied a franchise playoff record by extending his points streak to five games.
The Sharks then scored on their first shot, as Burns got a wrister from the far side of the right face-off circle by Rinne, tying the game at 1 at 3:08 of the first.
Another rebound goal gave Nashville a 2-1 lead at 9:50 of the first as Fisher swatted the puck into an open net after gathering inNeal’s initial shot.
Donskoi tied the score at 2 with a one-timer from the left face-off circle on a pass from Marc-Edouard Vlasic at 14:09 of the second period.
Donskoi redeemed himself for a costly double minor high-sticking penalty Tuesday that led to Neal’s momentum-changing goal in San Jose’s 4-1 loss in Game 3.
Friday, a cable car will be dedicated to the Hall of Famer and Giants legend, who’s tickled that his name will be attached to a San Francisco icon.
“Like San Francisco cable cars, the legend of Willie Mays is iconic,” said Ed Reiskin, director of transportation for the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency.
While it may not move as fast as Mr.
A night after Jake Peavy surrendered seven runs, Matt Cain gave up eight Thursday night at AT&T Park in an embarrassing 17-7 beatdown by the Rockies, who morphed into a slow-pitch softball team in the fifth inning when scoring 13 runs.
Cain coughed up 10 hits, including home runs to Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story, and his ERA shot to 7.84, a tad better than Peavy’s 9.00.
The back end of the rotation is a mess, and no savior is knocking on the door in the minors.
A day after the Giants became the first team in history to yield at least a dozen runs in an inning twice over a seven-game stretch — counting the April 29 game in New York started by Peavy — Lincecum will throw in front of scouts Friday afternoon at Scottsdale (Ariz.) Stadium, hoping to land a job in a team’s rotation.
The Giants have said they could be interested in Lincecum as a reliever, but the shellackings Peavy and Cain are taking — the Giants have lost nine of their past 10 starts — would suggest there might be internal talk of considering Lincecum as a starter.
In the ugly fifth inning, Cain faced four batters — homer, double, error, single — and each scored, and it got no better with reliever Vin Mazzaro, who was charged with nine runs (seven earned), the most by a Giants reliever since Ray Sadecki in 1966 (nine runs, five earned).
Derek Law got the final two outs in the fifth, ending 37 minutes of agony for the Giants, who surrendered the most runs in an inning at home since the Montreal Expos dropped a 13-spot at Candlestick Park in 1997.
 the baseball world turns to Lincecum, who helped bring a championship culture to San Francisco and is seeking a second go-round after the 31-year-old underwent hip surgery and spent the offseason rehabbing.
(The Sports Xchange) - Mike Fisher ended the longest game in Nashville Predators history with a rebound goal at 11:12 of the third overtime early on Friday morning, giving them a 4-3 win over the San Jose Sharks to tie the Western Conference semifinal at 2-2.
