With Los Angeles five minutes away from a Game 7 series win, Sharks forward Joe Pavelski was ready to delay the Kings' trip to the Western Conference final.
But he couldn't get past Kings netminder Jonathan Quick.
As Pavelski made a low swipe of the puck, Quick dove across the crease to block the shot with his glove.
What did you think of the save by the reigning playoff MVP? Can you fault Pavelski for not raising the puck? Was it merely a case of right place, right time for Quick's glove? Or is this the stuff Conn Smythe winners are made of?
