Consider The Sharks 'Over' The Avalanche For Game 7

The San Jose Sharks and Colorado Avalanche will play a Game 7 Wednesday following Colorado's overtime win in Monday's Game 6. The Sharks know what it takes to get there and they will have to be on top of their game.

Since 2015, home teams are 10-10 In Game 7's, including 2-1 this season.

Trailing 2-1 against the Sharks, Nathan MacKinnon set up Colin Wilson with a lovely pass, which he deposited for the apparent tying goal. The next two nights will determine who goes through to the Western Conference Finals as the St. Louis Blues take on the Dallas Sharks on Tuesday evening, and the Colorado Avalanche battle the San Jose Sharks in the final second-round matchup on Wednesday.

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

In a memorable game that included endless storylines, the Sharks got off to a 2-0 lead on a goal and a setup by Pavelski, who was cleared medically before the game to play for the first time since his head injury two weeks earlier in Game 7 against Vegas.

"It's a clumsy mistake, you know?" I haven't been in that position at all, to have to make that call in a Game 7. While that was going on, his teammates scored four power-play goals during the major penalty to Eakin that even Pavelski acknowledged was not warranted.

Senators react to subpoena issued to Trump Jr. "It's time to focus on ISSUES, not investigations", House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) wrote on Twitter.

Having already prompted standing ovations when he skated in warmup and again when he was announced as the Sharks' starting centre, his redirection six minutes into the game sent the SAP Center crowd into a frenzy.

"Then we were wondering why they didn't drop the puck and obviously I was still on the ice ..."

But at the end of the first period, the Avalanche cut into the deficit, with Mikko Rantanen scoring with a mere 6.8 seconds left on the clock. It took a whole team effort to beat the Avs in seven games without their captain.

Avalanche forward Colin Wilson appeared to score in the second period but was denied after an off-side challenge. "'Get off the ice.' If I could have done something different on that play, I would have jumped the boards a lot quicker", he said (via ESPN.com).

"After reviewing all available replays and consulting with the linesman, the situation room determined that Gabriel Landeskog did not legally tag up at the blue line prior to the puck entering the offensive zone", the National Hockey League said in a statement. He opened the scoring in the first period and led his team to victory. The San Jose Sharks have won eight of their last 11 games as a home favorite.

This Blues team is not afraid to roll with all four lines and the Sharks need to have weapons on each of their lines to be able to keep up with their opposition. We shall see. The Blues are off a 2-1 OT win over the Stars and getting the game-winner was Patrick Maroon, which was his 3rd of the postseason.
