Sharks' Marc-Edouard Vlasic speaks out on controversial Game 7 penalty

In Game 7 of the first round between the Sharks and the Golden Knights, we saw what may be the most controversial penalty in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Some were for the penalty and many were against, but San Jose's Marc-Edouard Vlasic is 100% for the penalty given.

Marc-Edouard Vlasic was a special guest on Quebec sports show J.i.C with outspoken sports commentator Jean-Charles Lajoie, and talked about his injury and the series against the Golden Knights. Although his team won, hear him out on why he's for the penalty.
Yesterday, the team was more disciplined than the Golden Knights. You see a situation where [Joe] Pavelski receives a cross-check, falls head first on the ice, and loses consciousness. There's blood coming out of his helmet, you really don't have a choice to give 5 minutes [in penalty].
 He continued to talk about how the call may be controversial, but it isn't entirely the referee's fault.
The Golden Knights should have never allowed 4 goals on the penalty kill to a team that's proven to have difficulties on the powerplay. For me, the most important element here, is that they allowed four goals on the penalty kill while our powerplay was 4 for 25 in the first 6 games. 
Vlasic also gave an update on how Pavelski is doing.
After the game, when we entered the dressing room, he was there. Giving high-fives to the guys, and he was doing very well. 
 The Sharks will meet with the Colorado Avalanche in the second round, the first game will be this Friday.
