Goodrow's OT goal caps Sharks 5-4 Game 7 win vs. Vegas


In Las Vegas, the Golden Knights will always lament the call that they believe was excessive and cost them a chance to advance to the second round.


"He's the heart of this team, and to see him go down like that and suffer like that was heartbreaking for us," said center Joe Thornton, who rallied his teammates and implored them to score three goals on the power play to erase the 3-0 deficit.


The penalty happened on a faceoff in San Jose's offensive zone when Cody Eakin cross-checked Pavelski in the chest with 10:47 to play.


The officials huddled as a dazed Pavelski was helped to the locker room and gave Eakin a five-minute major for cross-checking and a game misconduct.


Martin Jones then appeared ready to seal the win, robbing Mark Stone with a glove save with 3:10 to go and Vegas on the power play.


San Jose will face Colorado in the Western Conference semifinals, starting with Game 1 at home on Friday night.
