After losing their first two road games of the postseason in Nashville, the San Jose Sharks return home licking their wounds. As San Jose gets set for Game 5 on Saturday at SAP Center against the Nashville Predators (10 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports), its unofficial mascot, Jo Paw-velski, is trying to push the momentum back in the Sharks' favor.
The cat became a huge hit on social media on April 29, when she ran onto the SAP Center ice prior to Game 1 of the Western Conference Second Round. She was rescued under the stands later that night and taken to Humane Society Silicon Valley, in nearby Milpitas, Calif., where she is being cared for until a permanent home can be found for her.
The best-of-7 series is tied 2-2.
