Stanley Cup Playoffs: Blues vs. Sharks preview, prediction

Sharks' Joe Pavelski says Vegas' Game 7 penalty wasn't 5-minute major

Sharks: Averaging 3.1 goals, 5.3 assists, 4.6 penalties and 11.6 penalty minutes while giving up 3.2 goals per game with a.900 save percentage. "You play against D like that, you've got to try and make it as hard as possible". "The past two Game 7 games (at home against the Vegas Golden Knights and Avalanche), it was unbelievable for us". No doubt the top line of Nathan MacKinnon, Mikko Rantanen and Gabriel Landeskog have to be sharp and take a volume of shots to start and quality one's thereafter. 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...' The Sharks focused a bulk of their defensive efforts against suppressing his impact and it allowed the Avalanches depth forwards to break through for the first time in this series. "I didn't know much about him, but you've seen it more and more now young guys are able to step in, jump into the National Hockey League right away".

Colorado's Philipp Grubauer has been the better goalie in this round, but in the Sharks three wins, they kept coming.

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

Just three shifts later, he threaded a pass from behind the net to a surprisingly open Tomas Hertl, who ripped a one-timer to double the lead. The Sharks challenged the goal and got their desired result as the goal was taken away due to offsides.

One more update: Here is the official explanation for the ruling on the play: "After reviewing all available replays and consulting with the Linesman, the Situaion Room determined that Gabriel Landeskog did not legally tag up at the blue line prior to the puck entering the offensive zone".

Neither team has won consecutive games in the series, and three of the six games have been decided by a goal.

"I was just as surprised as anybody", Landeskog said of the overturned goal.

"Then we were wondering why they didn't drop the puck and obviously I was still on the ice ..." "I think with Ottawa, it was a little unexpected". Jones has played modestly better in the postseason after a not so hot regular season. With Pavelski making his likely return to the lineup here's who else will be on the ice in this final game of Round 2.

Still, getting hyped up by some of the strongest, most intimidating men in the country doesn't seem to hurt.

The San Jose Sharks are up against another Game 7 tonight at the Tank.

Although their season is toast, you certainly haven't heard the last from this up-and-coming bunch of Avs.

The Blues season looked to be all but over as they sat in dead last for most of the season. As teams advance deeper and deeper into the playoffs, number of games played becomes more a factor, with the advantage going to team with fewer games under their belt.

The Avs are short on depth, but there is a lot to be optimistic about.
