The Penguins have a chance to take the Stanley Cup at home tonight.

John Hefti-USA TODAY Sports

When the Pittsburgh Penguins took game four by a score of 3-1 on the road, they earned themselves a chance to do something that every team dreams of. They earned the chance to close out the playoffs and win the Stanley Cup on home ice. Meanwhile, the Sharks will be looking to spoil that dream and keep their own hopes alive.

There should be no changes in nets, as Martin Jones will start for the Sharks, going up against the Penguins' Matt Murray.
