Have you ever watched a hockey game as a fan and found yourself questioning the sanity of the coaches? Perplexed, you try to ascertain just precisely WTF the coach is thinking when he doesn’t play a well-known superstar as much as you’d play him. If you were on the bench, things would be different.

At our conference this past summer, we got to relive perhaps the wildest third period of a Game 7 ever, through the eyes of San Jose Sharks coach Pete DeBoer.

The final minutes of the third period involved a scary injury to Sharks captain Joe Pavelski, a phantom five-minute major penalty, four San Jose goals on the ensuing power play to erase a 3-0 deficit, and a last minute goal by Vegas to tie the game.

“The whole series was memorable, topped off by a Game 7 that was the craziest game I’ve ever been part of,” said DeBoer.
