Joe Pavelski leads Sharks past Avalanche 3-2 in Game 7

Consider The Sharks 'Over' The Avalanche For Game 7

The San Jose Sharks advanced to the Western Conference finals with a 3-2 victory over the Colorado Avalanche in Game 7 of their second-round playoff series on Wednesday night, and Avs fans are left wondering about what could have been after a goal was called off due to a controversial offsides call. Joe Staley, Laken Tomlinson, Weston Richburg, Mike Person and Mike McGlinchey all donned Sharks jerseys before the game, turning around to hype up the Sharks as they headed through the tunnel towards the ice. The decision was made in accordance to Rule 83.3 (i), 'All players of the offending team clear the zone at the same instant (skate contact with the blue line) permitting attacking players to re-enter the attacking zone...'

Perhaps supporting the Sharks will give the 49ers a bit of extra motivation to find the postseason themselves in 2019.

Facing elimination isn't a new feeling for the Sharks, who won three win-or-go-home games in the first round against Vegas when they overcame a 3-1 series deficit for the first time in franchise history.

"It's a clumsy mistake, you know?"

"I haven't gotten hurt in a long time - a year-and-a-half - and it happens in Game 7 of the second round", MacKinnon said afterward.

United Nations sanctions Resolution 2371, adopted in August 2017, bans all North Korean exports of coal, iron, lead and seafood. The captain was arrested and charged with "knowingly hoisting a false flag", according to UN Security Council documents.

That is where Jordan Binnington came in and ever since making his first NHL start in mid-January he has been one of the most productive goalies in the league. For San Jose, since the start of the season, that was what they were expected to do. Everything that this team and this organization has shown me is that they're willing to put in the work to get to where we want to go. He created a couple of scoring chances and Colorado then converted with MacKinnon on the ice in the closing seconds of the period when Rantanen deflected a point shot from Samuel Girard with 6.8 seconds remaining in the first. Even though they were some valleys during the season, the Sharks have mostly met expectations. The St. Louis Blues are averaging 2.6 goals per game and are scoring on 17.1 percent of their power play opportunities.

Neither team has won consecutive games in the series, and three of the six games have been decided by a goal. MacKinnon set up Colin Wilson's goal in the slot, and all of the players appeared to be onside. "If I could've done something different on that play, I would have jumped the boards a lot quicker". Throw in the oft-recorded tale of how the Blues were last in the league on January 3, and there's no doubt adversity doesn't impact this club.

The Sharks then restored the two-goal lead later in the period when Donskoi skated around the net and beat Grubauer high to the short side for his first goal since January 10.

Just like at forward the Blues do not have quite the star power that the Sharks do on the blue line, but you cannot argue with the results they get. The Avalanche once again dressed seven defensemen and 11 forwards.
