Avalanche fans upset over Game 7 goal lost to offsides call

Avalanche offsides

The San Jose Sharks advanced to the Western Conference finals with a 3-2 victory over the Colorado Avalanche in Game 7 of their second-round playoff series on Wednesday night, and Avs fans are left wondering about what could have been after a goal was called off due to a controversial offsides call.

Colorado was down 2-1 and appeared to tie the game in the second period on a goal by Colin Wilson right after a line change. The Sharks challenged the goal and got their desired result as the goal was taken away due to offsides.

The officials/NHL determined that Gabriel Landeskog did not tag up at the blue line prior to the puck entering the offensive zone.

Here’s a good look at the play:

The Athletic’s Jesse Granger put into perspective just how silly the rule is:

Shortly after the goal was reversed, San Jose scored to go up 3-1. They won 3-2 and advanced to the conference finals to face the Blues.

Landeskog addressed the play after the game, calling it a clumsy mistake.

Avalanche fans remained ticked off after the game, still venting after the game about how they were robbed.
