SAN JOSE - San Jose Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has acquired forward Tyler Kennedy from the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for a 2013 second round draft selection (50th overall).
"Tyler is a highly-competitive forward who plays with speed and has a history of scoring big goals," said Wilson. "He has played in a lot of playoff games over the last past five seasons, won a Stanley Cup and we think he fits in perfectly with our group and how we want to play the game."
Tyler Kennedy brok a 2-2 tie midway through the 2nd period and that was the only goal the rest of the way.
Flyers still lead the series 3-2.

Penguins centre Tyler Kennedy has been suspended one game by the NHL for initiating a fight with the Maple Leafs’ Luke Schenn on Saturday night.
The Leafs had asked the league to review the incident, saying that Kennedy had come off to the Pens’ bench to start an altercation with the young defenceman.
from Mark Zwolinski of the Toronto Star,
Luke Schenn’s fight with Tyler Kennedy in the second period last night was a crowd pleaser, but the Leafs were far less enamoured with Kennedy’s actions prior to the bout.
Toronto GM Brian Burke phoned NHL disciplinarians last night seeking a review of the incident at 9:36, which the Leafs feel was instigated by Kennedy.
“(Burke) called the league and they are investigating,” Leafs coach Ron Wilson said after the Leafs’ 5-4 win over Kennedy’s Penguins.
“In my opinion, he (Kennedy) came off the bench and instigated the fight, so we’ll see what the league’s investigation finds.”

From the LA Times,
The Penguins got a rude awakening at their Detroit-area hotel when a fire alarm went off about 1:30 a.m. Monday.
“It was kind of annoying,” forward Tyler Kennedy said. “I just stayed in bed. Worse comes to worse, I’d just jump out the window.”
Kennedy said hotel employees confirmed that it was a false alarm.
“They came out and said it was just someone fooling around,” he said. “Probably was a Red Wings fan.”
