Sharks win 'ugly' as they fight through brutal schedule

SAN JOSE Playing their fifth game in eight days thanks to the condensed (some would say foolish) NHL schedule this season, perhaps its not all that surprising that the Sharks looked like they hit a wall on Saturday night at home against Colorado.Still, this was the Avalanche, who have been far and away the NHLs worst team for the past six weeks. Even a subpar effort should be enough.And, it was. The Sharks got a power play goal by Joel Ward and another from their fourth line, while David Schlemko pounced on a rebound in overtime to push the Sharks to a 3-2 win.

Quick Bite: Sharks shut out on Fear the Fin Night

Quick Bite: Sharks shut out on Fear the Fin Night

The return of two key defensemen wasn’t enough for San Jose on Saturday night. The return of Paul Martin and David Schlemko to the blue line on Saturday night gave the Sharks (25–16–2) their strongest lineup in weeks, but a disastrous second period left them fighting a deficit they couldn’t overcome. Joe Thornton’s game misconduct penalty after San Jose went down 2–0 left his team shorthanded once again as St. Louis (22–16–5) took the second of three matchups between these two teams this season by a score of 4–0. Following an uneventful first period, the second was...

Schlemko likely for Saturday; Heed impresses in Sharks debut

SAN JOSE The Sharks revolving door on defense continues to be just that.Dylan DeMelo, who will miss approximately eight weeks with a broken right wrist, is the latest injury. Paul Martin, who missed Wednesdays game in Calgary with a lower body injury, did not practice on Friday.David Schlemko, though, is apparently ready to return from missing the last five games with an upper body injury.

DeMelo out eight weeks with broken wrist

More injuries along the blueline. The San Jose Sharks’ defensive depth took another hit this morning, as defenseman Dylan DeMelo will miss eight weeks after undergoing surgery to fix his broken wrist, Sharks general manager Doug Wilson announced. The second-year defenseman broke his wrist three days ago in a 5-3 win over the Edmonton Oilers. He joins defenseman David Schlemko on the shelf, who is currently on injured reserve with an upper body injury. DeMelo began the season seemingly entrenched as the Sharks’ seventh defenseman, and did not dress in the Sharks’ first 19 games....

The Daily Chum: Evaluating who is still healthy on the Sharks’ blue line

Hint: Not this guy. The injury bug is really testing the Sharks’ blue line depth. As soon as Marc-Edouard Vlasic returned, Dylan DeMelo was gone. Then Paul Martin missed Wednesday night’s contest against the Calgary Flames at the last moment, forcing the Sharks to skate with five defenders. To recap, the following defenders were not available for Wednesday’s game: David Schlemko, Paul Martin, Dylan DeMelo. The good news: Martin is likely a day-to-day situation and will probably return to the lineup on Saturday and Tim Heed, who made his NHL debut on Wednesday, looked pretty darn...

Sharks can't overcome Flames, clerical error

CALGARY The Sharks were already shorthanded on their blue line headed into Wednesdays game in Calgary. Paul Martin was unable to go for unspecified reasons, Dylan DeMelo suffered a wrist injury in Edmonton on Tuesday that will keep him out for weeks, and David Schlemko is still on the shelf with an upper body injury.But a mix up on the official scorers sheet that gets filled out by the coaching staff before every game further complicated matters.

Sharks vs. Oilers Preview: Breaking in Edmonton’s new building

It’s San Jose’s first trip to Rogers Arena It took overtime for the Sharks to beat the Oilers in their first and only meeting of the season back on Dec. 23 and it may remain a tough ask for San Jose tonight if Marc-Edouard Vlasic doesn’t return to the lineup. Vlasic played against the Oilers in the teams’ previous meeting, though his fellow injured defender David Schlemko did not, and has been out of the lineup since taking a puck to the face against Philadelphia on Dec. 30. Vlasic made the trip to Edmonton with the Sharks while Schlemko did not. He’s a game-time decision for San...

Mikkel Boedker is in, Vlasic and Schlemko are still out If you love Danish forwards who are struggling to score, I have good news. If you love amazing defenders with beautiful dogs, I have bad news. Mikkel Boedker is back in the lineup tonight after head coach Pete DeBoer scratched the forward on Thursday night against the Wild while both Marc-Edouard Vlasic and David Schlemko remain on the shelf due to injury. Tim Heed was recalled before the game but will not play, which means we will see Dylan DeMelo and Mirco Mueller reunited on the bottom pairing. That’s not news anyone wanted to...

The Daily Chum: Sharks need to start rolling four lines again

Shortening the bench can’t be the answer. The Sharks managed to get a point against the Kings on Tuesday night despite playing without Marc-Edouard Vlasic, David Schlemko and Tomas Hertl. Losing to L.A. will never feel satisfying, but San Jose should look at the silver lining in what turned into a halfway decent performance after a fine third period of action. Martin Jones kept the Sharks alive through two periods and San Jose turned on the jets in the third. They couldn’t find a go-ahead goal after Jeff Carter knotted things up on the power play, but San Jose applied most of the...

San Jose Sharks fall 2-1 to Kings in overtime

Tanner Pearson capped a 2-on-1 break with a game-winning goal 58 seconds into sudden death as the Kings beat the banged-up Sharks 2-1 at sold-out SAP Center. Pearson drilled in Jeff Carter’s cross-ice feed with only defenseman Justin Braun back for the Sharks after San Jose’s Logan Couture committed a costly turnover in the visitors’ zone. Considering San Jose was playing without one-third of its blue line crew — Marc-Edouard Vlasic and David Schlemko are sidelined with injuries — the Sharks were searching for silver linings as they maintained a two-point lead over Anaheim in the...

The scoreboard read just 3-2, a testament to a fine game from Martin Jones, but San Jose took a beating without Marc-Edouard Vlasic in the lineup.
