SAN JOSE, Calif. — In San Jose, the game will always be remembered as the Pavelski Payback for the four goals scored on one power play after the Sharks’ captain was knocked out cold, turning around a wild Game 7 that finally ended in overtime.

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.

The Sharks responded to the bloody injury to captain Joe Pavelski by scoring four goals on the ensuing power play and then bounced back after allowing the game-tying goal in the final minute of regulation to beat Vegas, 5-4, on Barclay Goodrow’s goal 18 minutes 19 seconds into overtime on Tuesday night.

“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. “That power-play unit, it won us the game. The boys got together and said this is for Pavs. We love him. It was just a matter of will, and we willed that one for him.”



The penalty happened on a face-off in San Jose’s offensive zone when Cody Eakin crosschecked Pavelski in the chest with 10:47 to play. Paul Stastny then bumped Pavelski as he fell to the ice, his helmet slamming down. Pavelski was knocked out and bleeding on the ice.

“You see our leader go down, he’s out cold on the ice and it was kind of like he was seizuring up a little bit so tough to see,” his teammate Logan Couture said.

The officials huddled as a dazed Pavelski was helped to the locker room and gave Eakin a five-minute major for crosschecking and a game misconduct. The series supervisor, Don VanMassenhoven, said the major penalty was given because the crosscheck caused a significant injury.

The Golden Knights disagreed.

“They called five minutes for that? Why don’t you have hockey replay or something? It changed the whole outcome of the game,” forward Jonathan Marchessault said. “Seriously. What is that? It’s so disappointing. The game is not even close, it’s 3-0. Call the two, O.K., but a five? With something you don’t even see? You just called the outcome. It’s a joke, that’s what it is. It’s embarrassing.”
