Game 7, can’t get any better than that right? Tonight’s game between the Colorado Avalanche and San Jose Sharks would decide who will face the St. Louis Blues for the right to represent the Western Conference in the Stanley Cup Finals. San Jose Sharks captain Joe Pavelski would make his return after missing time from a concussion off a faceoff play in last rounds game 7 against the Golden Knights. He would participate in warm-ups and was determined to be able to play in tonight’s game. Joe Pavelski played a big role in the first period as he got the first goal of the game and set up the second goal by Tomas Hertl on a beautiful passing sequence. Mikko Rantanen would get the Avalanche within one. After the first period, San Jose would lead 2-1.
In the second period, Jonas Donskoi would add to the Sharks lead at the 12:27 mark and score his first of the playoffs. Going into the third and final period, the San Jose Sharks would lead the game 3-1.
Colorado in the third period would get within one goal fifty-one seconds into the period as Tyson Jost would put the puck in the back of the net on his backhand. However, Colorado wouldn’t score again and the San Jose Sharks were the victors by a final score of 3-2. The San Jose Sharks will now play the St. Louis Blues in the Western Conference Finals.
