The Pittsburgh Penguins and San Jose Sharks scored four goals in the first 5:06 to set a Stanley Cup Final record in Game 5 at Consol Energy Center on Thursday.

It broke the record set by the Penguins and Blackhawks, who each scored twice in the first 6:51 of Game 4 of the 1992 Final.

The Penguins scored twice in 22 seconds to tie the game Thursday.

Evgeni Malkin scored at 4:44 of the first period and Carl Hagelin scored at 5:06 to make it 2-2.

Brent Burns scored 1:04 into the game and Logan Couture scored at 2:53 to give San Jose a 2-0 lead.

It was the first time the Sharks led in the series, and the first time the Penguins trailed during a game since Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final against the Tampa Bay Lightning on May 20.

With its 4-2 win Thursday, San Jose trails the best-of-7 series 3-2. Game 6 is Sunday in San Jose (8 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, TVA Sports).
