Gambrell gets first career NHL goal in Sharks’ must-win Game 6

Sharks rookie Dylan Gambrell was not supposed to be playing Tuesday night.
He only suited up for San Jose in its must-win Game 6 against the St. Louis Blues because of injuries to center Joe Pavelski and forward Tomas Hertl.
But in just his second career playoff game, Gambrell scored his first career goal and brought the Sharks back into an elimination game they trailed 2-0.
Gambrell received a long backhand pass from Joonas Donskoi at the St. Louis blue line and skated in on Jordan Binnington. With two Blues closing in on him, Gambrell took a shot he’ll remember the rest of his career, ripping the puck past Binnington’s stick and into the net.

It’s not only Gambrell’s second NHL playoff game, Game 6 is also just his 13th game total at the NHL level after a three-year career at the University of Denver.
He became just the second Shark to score his first career goal in the playoffs.

Whether the Sharks complete the comeback or not, Tuesday night is already a memorable one for Dylan Gambrell.
