Winning Play: Radil’s roll saves Sharks’ road swing

Winning Play: Radil’s roll saves Sharks’ road swing

One shift was typical of the breakdowns that led to the San Jose Sharks’ recent 1-6-1 road skid. One play salvaged another almost-disastrous road trip. Hanging onto a one-goal lead in the third period, Joe Pavelski (8) won the offensive zone draw: Along the half-wall, Brent Burns (88) pinched to get the puck in deeper. As Burns stepped up, Evander Kane (9) backed him up. Joonas Donskoi (27) anticipated Brad Richardson’s (15) pass up the middle. This is all good hockey. But then, Donskoi attempted a behind-the-back drop pass at the blueline to nobody in...

Sharks extend mastery of Canadiens

Martin Jones stopped the Montreal Canadiens — and the San Jose Sharks’ four-game skid. Jones made 40 saves — 22 in the third period — to help the Sharks beat the Canadiens 3-1 on Sunday. Justin Braun, Brent Burns and Joe Pavelski scored for San Jose. “We did a great job of eliminating those Grade-A chances and those odd-man rushes that have been causing us some problems,” Jones said. “It was much better tonight.” Jones improved to 7-1 against Montreal as the Sharks beat the Canadiens for the seventh consecutive time. Jeff Petry scored for Montreal. “When you run into a...

Brent Who? Wild’s Dumba Is Top-Scoring D-man in NHL

ST. PAUL, Minn. — More than seven years have passed since the Wild traded Brent Burns. Finally, there's a reason in Minnesota to stop wincing about dealing away one of the NHL's most potent defencemen. Matt Dumba leads all blue-liners in the league wit... The post Brent Who?

Sharks 2, Sabres 3 (OT): Pavelski leads comeback bid, earns Sharks a point in OT loss

Sharks 2, Sabres 3 (OT): Pavelski leads comeback bid, earns Sharks a point in OT loss

The Sharks paid for Brent Burns’ sins Tuesday night in Buffalo, and even Joe Pavelski couldn’t save them. The Sabres have now tied a franchise record win streak and lead the Eastern Conference with 36 points. Burns’ decisions directly led to both of Buffalo’s regulation goals. He played Rasmus Ristolainen too passively in the second period and allowed the defender to pull a forward’s move around him. In the third period, he botched the man defense coverage: he drifted to double-cover puck carrier Sam Reinhart, leaving Nate Beaulieu to rush in and tap the pass in. Pavelski scored...

Quick Bites: McDavid carries Oilers to win over Sharks

Quick Bites: McDavid carries Oilers to win over Sharks

The generational talent played nearly 24 minutes to push Edmonton to a 4-3 overtime win. Any team that faces the Edmonton Oilers knows that the key to beating that team is to shut down their cornerstone player: Connor McDavid. If you can do that, your chances against a very top-heavy Edmonton team are excellent. Unfortunately, shutting down Connor McDavid is much easier said than done. The Sharks got off to a hot start, when less than a minute into the game, Joe Pavelski was able to win the Sharks’ first offensive zone faceoff of the game back to Brent Burns at the right point. Burns, an...

Winning Play: Thornton’s genius, Sorensen’s support

Winning Play: Thornton’s genius, Sorensen’s support

On the night that Joe Thornton beat the Nashville Predators 5-4 with his 400th career NHL goal, his most extraordinary play might have been an uncredited assist. The San Jose Sharks were seven minutes away from losing a 4-3 game that they had once led 3-0. But then, another Joe, Pavelski (8), anticipated a Roman Josi (59) pass, forcing its receiver, Filip Forsberg (9), into a turnover. Every Sharks skater touched the puck in this game-tying sequence: Justin Braun (61) sent it to Thornton (19), Thornton served Brent Burns (88), Burns backhanded it to Marcus Sorensen (20), then...
