“Gutted is the only word I can feel when you lose a game like that,” Pete DeBoer said, per Sportsnet. “Proud of our group, proud of our fight, proud of our battle…They did leave everything out there. We should be going to play a Game 7, {but} we’re not.”

Pete DeBoer Opens up on Joe Pavelski

Joe Pavelski, The 39-year-old forward, who has played over 1,300 regular-season games in his NHL career, gave everything he had in what might have been his last game. His contract was up, and he had five shots on goal in Game 6. Coach Pete DeBoer called it a privilege to coach a player like Pavelski.

“I don’t know if it’ll be Joe’s last game or not,” said DeBoer, who coached Pavelski with the San Jose Sharks from 2015-19 and the Stars the past two seasons. “But [it was the] absolute privilege of my coaching career to coach a guy like that.”
