Aurora's Barclay Goodrow scores Game 7 victor for San Jose Sharks

The Knights were none too pleased about the five minute major to Eakin that cost them the game and the series.

The forward left Game 7 bleeding on Tuesday night. The Golden Knights had a reasonably good penalty kill during the regular season: they only gave up more than two power play goals in a game once all season, allowing three against the Calgary Flames. The boys got together and said this is for Pavs. "So we love him".

Cody Eakin was assessed a five-minute major and ultimately was ejected from the game after he was whistled for a cross-check on Sharks captain Joe Pavelski. Pavelski fell to the ground and hit his head on the ice. And he went down, and I really hope he's OK and he comes back.

"It nearly made you cry, because we love him so much", said Thornton, who held a towel to Pavelski's bleeding head as he helped him to the dressing room.

And afterward with the defending Western Conference champs' season over, Marchessault was furious and accused the referees of stealing the game from the Golden Knights with the major penalty call, which was a discretionary not mandatory decision. They didn't quite accomplish that, as the teams combined for 219 penalty minutes. Why don't you have hockey replay or something? "It changed the whole outcome of the game", Jonathan Marchessault said. "Seriously. What is that?" They went 3-for-3 in Game 6 and 2-for-2 in Game 7. Call the two, OK, but a five? But a five? For something you don't even see? It's a joke, that's what it is.

Defenseman Brent Burns led the Sharks in scoring with 83 points (16 goals, 67 assists), followed by Tomas Hertl (35 goals, 74 points), Logan Couture (27 goals, 70 points), Timo Meier (30 goals, 66 points), Pavelski (38 goals, 64 points) and Gustav Nyquist (22 goals, 60 points). That scoring spree in 4:01 against Marc-Andre Fleury sent the fans at the Shark Tank so used to playoff disappointment into delirium. Jones scored the game and series-winning goal in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs against the Vegas Golden Knights. "They kind of just gave me [the] shot, and they've been giving me shot all series". We've still got three more rounds to go. "So you hold him as hard you can, get him off the ice and get him better".

Trailing 3-0 in the third period, it seemed as if the Sharks' valiant comeback in the series against Vegas was going to wind up being yet another story of playoff underachievement.

The animosity between Vegas and San Jose spilled over to the coaches before Game 7.

"Last year we were in the Stanley Cup Finals and it was tough to lose. It's too bad we end up losing because of that because were we in control of the hockey game". He took a pass from Erik Karlsson and deking his way past Fleury for the game-winner that set off a wild celebration.

After adding an early goal in the third, the Golden Knights looked firmly secure to win and move on to the second round.
