Up until his goal, Larsen had been heavily criticized on social media for his play in the defensive zone. But once he scored Vancouver’s only goal, fans quickly forgave him.
Unfortunately, San Jose soon restored their three-goal lead. Tierney’s second goal of the game was initially waved off due to goaltender interference. But Sharks coach Peter DeBoer challenged, and the NHL soon determined Joel Ward did not interfere with Miller making the save.
