Now we have the next closest thing in the NHL playoffs. The refs did not signal a penalty when this happened, but based on the result they figured Eakin had to cross-check Pavelski in the face. But he didn’t.
Vegas was cruising with a 3-0 lead in game 7 with 10 minutes left. San Jose scored FOUR goals during the five-minute major penalty and won in overtime after Vegas tied it up. The NHL later agreed it was a bad call. One of the Sharks even mentioned the Saints after the game.
