SAN JOSE — The NHL admitted to the Vegas Golden Knights that it messed up a game-changing call that gave the Sharks a five-minute power play in the third period of Game 7 in their first round series. With the Golden Knights leading by three goals, center Cody Eakin was assessed at five-minute major and a game misconduct with 10:47 left in regulation time for cross-checking Sharks captain Joe Pavelski immediately after a faceoff in the Vegas end. It did not appear Eakin’s cross-check hit Pavelski in the face. But Pavelski was knocked off balance and then pushed by Vegas center Paul Stastny. The back of Pavelski’s head hit the ice as he began to bleed. Pavelski remained on the ice for several moments before he was helped off by trainer Ray Tufts and teammates Joe Thornton, Brent Burns and Evander Kane. The Sharks scored four times in 4:01 on the ensuing major to take the lead, and won the game 5-4 in overtime on a goal by Barclay Goodrow to take the series four-games-to-three and advance to the second round. Pavelski’s status for Game 1 of the Sharks’ second round series against the Colorado Avalanche on Friday is unknown. He did not practice with the team Thursday morning. The Golden Knights were infuriated by the call at the time and after the game. Thursday, Vegas general manager George McPhee told reporters that the NHL contacted him and apologized for the call. “The league did reach out and apologize,” McPhee said. “They made a mistake and I’m sure (the officials) feel bad about it. They want to get things right like we all do when we’re doing our jobs.” Golden Knights winger Jonathan Marchessault didn’t hold back his frustration with the call on Eakin that turned the tide in the game. On the power play, Logan Couture scored twice and Tomas Hertl and Kevin Labanc both scored once. Labanc also assisted on the other three goals. “They called five minutes for that? Why don’t you have hockey replay or something? It changed the whole outcome of the game,” Marchessault said Tuesday night. “Seriously. What is that? It’s so disappointing. The game is not even close, it’s 3-0. Call the two, OK, but a five? With something you don’t even see? You just called the outcome. It’s a joke, that’s what it is. It’s embarrassing.”

OAKLAND — Even if it required him to take a red-eye flight as part of a recruiting trip, Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo would not want to be anywhere else. Sure, Izzo presumably did not like what he saw when he watched the Warriors’ 129-121 Game 5 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday at Oracle Arena. Beforehand, though, Izzo relished his chance to speak with Warriors coach Steve Kerr in his office. Izzo also caught up with Draymond Green, who starred with the Spartans for four years before the Warriors selected him No. 35 in the 2012 NBA Draft. Three NBA championships, a Defensive Player of the Year award and plenty of other accolades later, and Green still maintains a close relationship with his former coach. Hence, Izzo became reflective, nostalgic and honest about Green’s season, his argument with Kevin Durant and more. Below is a Q&A with Izzo, which is slightly edited for clarity. How was your visit with Steve? Izzo: “It was great. I love Steve. I love what they do offensively. I think they’re so much better defensively than they’ve given credit. It’s a fun team. When you’re a college team, you get every guy to share the ball, who does that? Nobody does that.” How often do you talk to Steve? Izzo: “I talk to Steve whenever Draymond struggles [laughs]. Steve has been great. Bob [Myers] has been great. I really have an appreciation as a college coach. They really care about their guys. Who reaches out to the college guy? When Steve got the job, he called me before he even coached. It’s pretty cool. What perspective do you share with Steve about Draymond when he struggles? Izzo: “Draymond is ornery all the time. But I love him. I think he’s back to playing his better basketball. He struggled a little bit early. But right now he’s passing it and setting the screens. His defense has been really good. In the last couple of weeks, I think it’s been his best basketball I’ve seen him play this year. He’s got to be that way if he’s going to be effective.” (Nhat V. Meyer/Bay Area News Group) How do you compare Draymod’s season to other seasons?Izzo: “He struggled midway through the season this year. He went through an injury last summer. I don’t think he worked on his shooting as much. He was laid up. That’s hurt him a little bit. But I think he’s getting back to realizing he can do what he usually does. When people were looking at him out of college and asked what he does well, I said, ‘Nothing. He’s not a great shooter. He’s not a great this, and he’s not a great that.’ But he’s a tough mother— that knows how to win. That’s still what he is. He knows how to win.” Draymond’s playing with a wrist injury, but he said he can play through it. When he played for you, what was his pain threshold like?Izzo: “He’s smart and tough. He never would ever miss a game because of an injury. When the training staff would say ‘He’ll play tonight,’ I would say, ‘No [crap]. Are you crazy?’ He was so smart. Even his freshman year when we didn’t play as much, by the end of the year we went to a Final Four and he knew it was winning time. He was always a winning-time player. Of course, his conditioning got better. Right now, he’s in the best shape that he’s in. Some of that was the injury. Some of that was going through the KD thing and that was tough. But I love him, man. I wouldn’t trade him for all the tea in China. He gave me a hassle a lot of times, too. But he was about winning. When it was winning time and I needed him, he always came through. [related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-section”] Draymond praised you about your help after his argument with Kevin. What did you tell him?Izzo: What I told him is, ‘You can do some things in public and you do some things in private.’ I think in some of our huddles, I’ve talked to Steve about it, I think some of our huddles today, I didn’t care either. That was right up my alley. If he wanted to argue, I’d argue. But when he left that huddle, I knew he was going to do what he needed to do to win. I think that’s what he’s getting back to. It was hard on him. It was the first public not criticism he’s gotten. But most people don’t do that and call a guy out in public. Then again, that’s what separates Draymond. Everyone wants a guy who will do that. But you have to pick and choose. That one was a little crazier than normal from what I watched. But they seem to be better now. I don’t know what that means. But at least they are focused on winning a championship.” In your view, what did it take for Draymond and Kevin to move past it – at least enough to co-exist and produce together on the court.Izzo: “That’s one thing I don’t know. I don’t know the pro game. I don’t know how those guys work. But I think they have. First of all, Steph Curry is special with his demeanor. He, in his own quiet way, rallied everybody. Every family and every team goes through a situation. As they say, what doesn’t kill you usually makes you stronger. I think in a sick sort of way, maybe it welded them a little closer.” Was this part of a recruiting stop or just to see the game?Izzo: “I was in Denver and I saw [Nuggets guard] Gary Harris and [Spurs guard] Bryn Forbes. I took my wife. Unfortunately, we’re here taking a red-eye back because I have to be on the road recruiting this weekend. But I try to take time out and see Draymond a few times [a year].” What does your relationship with Draymond mean?Izzo: “It means the world. He’s one of the leaders. Magic [Johnson] is pretty good at it. He’ll go back to East Lansing a lot. But Draymond and my group have been the rallying guy. If we play badly, Draymond’s calling one of our guys. If we play badly, he’s calling me and saying, ‘I’m disappointed in you. How can you let that happen?’ He calls me out still. I love it. What do you think of when he supported you when you on your outburst this year during a huddle?Izzo: “I know why. We had many of those [laughs]. But when you get to know him, he has a heart that is this big. He’s going to keep maturing. I think he’s doing that. I really do. Hopefully it will work out. I feel like a little bit of a coach, but I feel more of a friend to him. That’s cool, too. We maintain this. I’ll still take his crap if we’re not playing good. Every once in a while, he’ll take my [crap] if he’s not playing good. How can you ask for more than that? For me, I’ve had a lot of good players and a lot of special guys. But Draymond’s been that guy who is not afraid to tell me. He tells me stuff other people wouldn’t tell me. He watches and I appreciate it. If I can give it, I better be able to take it. That’s the way our relationship has been.” WARRIORS HQ PODCAST: Be sure to visit our podcast page at mercurynews.com.
