San Jose Sharks defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic in discussing an icing call that wasn’t whistled by the officials and led to a critical Colorado Avalanche goal in their 4-3 win in Game 2 on Sunday.

“I’ll take the high road and wait for the league’s apology tomorrow,” Vlasic said.

So it wasn’t the right call?

Late in the second period, Vlasic appeared to beat Avalanche forward Mikko Rantanen to the puck after Colorado blue-liner Nikita Zadorov dumped it into the Sharks’ zone from his own end. Tyson Barrie scored moments later to give the Avalanche the lead.

San Jose head coach Peter DeBoer believes there’s something his club can learn from the play.

“Whether I thought it was (icing) or not doesn’t matter; our players did,” the bench boss said. “They let up. They relaxed for a minute. It obviously wasn’t. I guess the lesson in that is don’t assume anything in the playoffs. Play, and make sure.”

The Avalanche ultimately prevailed 4-3 to even the series at one game apiece.
