Joe Pavelski's series-tying overtime GWG

Apr 21, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

One San Jose Sharks player unlikely to face much “choking” talk is Joe Pavelski.

In Game 2 the American center scored a late third period that sent the match into overtime; the Sharks would eventually take their first win. Taking it one step further, Pavelski scored the overtime game winner last night, tying the series 2-2 in the process.

It might not be the prettiest goal you have ever seen, but for beleaguered Sharks fans, it was a sight for sore eyes. Now, if the team can just make sure that Pavelski will be seen in teal next season …

    Joe is a source of pride for many hockey fans from the Stevens Point Wi. area. I have watched him from the youth hockey, high school, and college programs. Every shot he takes every shot he blocks and every stride he takes all hockey fans in central wisconsin are right there with him. Thanks for all the memories!
