The San Jose Sharks won an epic Game 7 against the Vegas Golden Knights on Tuesday and everyone was absolutely here for it.

Twitter lit up during the third period of the Sharks 5-4 overtime win, a game that saw the Sharks trail 3-0 midway through the third period, then score four straight power play goals in 4:01 after Golden Knights forward Cody Eakin was ejected from the game.

As if that wasn't wild enough, Jonathan Marchessault tied the game with 47 seconds left.

Before Barclay Goodrow's winner with 1:41 left in overtime, plenty of social media users had plenty to say.

The Colorado Avalanche, the Sharks next opponent, had a humorous take on the game.

Former Sharks all-star Owen Nolan weighed in as well.
