The 49ers offensive line took time Wednesday night to participate in a portion of the San Jose Sharks' Game 7 festivities. Joe Staley, Laken Tomlinson, Weston Richburg, Mike Person and Mike McGlinchey all donned Sharks jerseys before the game, turning around to hype up the Sharks as they headed through the tunnel towards the ice.
Perhaps supporting the Sharks will give the 49ers a bit of extra motivation to find the postseason themselves in 2019. In Game 7 against Vegas, they scored four goals on the controversial five-minute major penalty to Eakin to erase a 3-0 deficit, and then won the game in overtime. So it's unusual, you know? They have four of the top-eight individual scorers in the playoffs and played nearly all of Round 2 without a 38-goal scorer from the regular season in Joe Pavelski. I'll take the blame for that. "To have the injuries that he has, coming back, and set up a goal, scored a goal".
Their starting puck-stopper, Jones, was superb against the Avalanche, likely helping fans in San Jose forget he was hooked twice in the opening round. Both teams have overcome a lot of adversity to get to this point, so don't be surprised if this series goes to seven games. "We do have guys that have participated in them in the past". He created a couple of scoring chances and Colorado then converted with MacKinnon on the ice in the closing seconds of the period when Rantanen deflected a point shot from Samuel Girard with 6.8 seconds remaining in the first. They'll travel to Boston well-rested before Thursday's game against the favored Bruins.

Throughout my career I actually did some of those dreams and my last dream as a professional footballer is to win the last final. The club will take a full squad to Boston for the Final Whistle on Hate game at Gillette Stadium on Wednesday.
The Avalanche appeared to tie it nearly midway through the game when Colin Wilson converted a MacKinnon feed to stun the sea of teal. It seemed as though the Sharks had an answer every time the Avs would pull ahead until Gabriel Landeskog sealed the deal with the game-winner in OT.
The league explained: "After reviewing all available replays and consulting with the linesman, the Situation Room determined that Gabriel Landeskog did not legally tag up at the blue-line prior to the puck entering the offensive zone". "'Get off the ice.' If I could have done something different on that play, I would have jumped the boards a lot quicker", he said (via ESPN.com).
Colorado pushed hard in the third, getting a goal in the first minute from Jost, but the Sharks managed to hold on from there for the win. The over is 3-1-1 in Blues last 5 road games. The San Jose Sharks have won eight of their last 11 games as a home favorite. That is what San Jose has to do, put the pressure on the Avalanche defense and create breakdowns and force Grubauer to be a star, on the road.
