Pavelski hurt, Eakin ejected, Sharks steal lead on huge Game 7 power play


At one point, the crowd in San Jose was “you can hear a pin drop” quiet in Game 7, as the Golden Knights built what looked like a suffocating 3-0 lead.


Fittingly in a back-and-forth series and a generally wild Round 1, the hockey world should have expected the unexpected.


Update: Then more unexpected happened in Game 7, as the Golden Knights kept pushing after the Sharks built that unlikely 4-3 lead, with Vegas scoring a 4-4 goal to send it to OT.


Joe Pavelski was hurt, possibly badly, on an awkward-looking hit, which drew a five-minute major penalty on Cody Eakin .


Video will be added soon, but here it is in GIF form: That was a frightening sight, and the officials responded by ejecting Eakin and charging him with a major penalty.


San Jose scored a ridiculous four goals on that major penalty to take a stunning lead.
