Watch: Sekera robbed by Jones in OT, and all he can do is smile



Late in overtime in San Jose, the Oilers looked to have the Sharks right where they wanted them. Edmonton's Jordan Eberle skates up ice after catching the tired Sharks in a bad line change and dishes to Andrej Sekera who walks in all alone against Sharks goalie Martin Jones. What happened next is the stuff of dreams for Jones, and the stuff of nightmares for Sekera.

Watch as the puck ramps off the shaft of Jones' stick and flies up into the netting. Jones was completely toast on the play, and Sekera looked to be in the process of scoring his 6th of the season. But luck intervened. All Sekera could do was smile.
The Sharks would survive the OT and take the win in a shootout, thanks to goals by Joe Pavelski and Joonas Donskoi. The victory marks the first time that San Jose has won back-to-back games at home all season.
