Friday night in the NHL didn’t disappoint one bit. As the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs continued the Sharks and Avalanche met up in game 1 at the shark tank in San Jose. Not without controversy though, was the Sharks go-ahead goal offside?
During the game 1 of the Western Conference Semi Final we seen the Colorado Avalanche jump out to an early 1-0 lead.
It didn’t stay that way long as the Sharks then tied it up on the rebound.
The seesaw battle continued between the two teams as they both traded the next two goals of the game.
Before the Sharks tied it up at 2 the Avs were given a 4 minute power play. Colorado couldn’t net a goal and the Sharks response was rather cheeky on twitter. Referencing the game 7 meltdown of the Vegas Golden Knights.
The game didn’t stay tied up long. Mid-way through the second period the Sharks Kevin Lebanc lights it up.
As Lebanc came across the blue line it appeared that the Sharks Thornton, foot may have been over the blue line putting him offside.
That was not the case in the end as the Sharks turned it on and never looked back. They ended up taking game 1 of the best of 7 with a score of 5-2.
