Goals 15 seconds apart help Wild beat Sharks

Martin Hanzal and Charlie Coyle scored 15 seconds apart before the second intermission to help the Wild stop a five-game skid and pull out a 3-2 victory over San Jose on Tuesday night. David Schlemko and Patrick Marleau had goals that gave each team two scores in a 63-second span, a record for the fastest four-goal stretch in Wild history, but the Sharks got no more on the way to a season-high fourth straight loss. Matt Dumba scored on a power play in the first period to give Minnesota a recently rare early lead. Anaheim, Edmonton and Calgary have surged into contention for the Pacific...

Game 72 Afterwords: Stars Win Game! (feat: Schlemko, Dillon, George)

Game 72 Afterwords: Stars Win Game! (feat: Schlemko, Dillon, George)

The Stars’ fourth line scored, and Kari Lehtonen made sure no one else did. I went to the Vancouver game last week, but that’ll be its own post in a little bit, once I get a chance to do the experience justice. In the meantime, let’s talk about the hockey most recent, eh? (That was an affectation.) So, the defensive pairing I noticed the most tonight was Brent Burns. The pairing I noticed the second-most was David Schlemko and Brenden Dillon, and only mostly because lol “Schlemko.” Also, do the Sharks have a better third pairing than Dallas thanks to two Dallas cast-offs? It’s...

Melker Karlsson out; Marcus Sorensen in.

Sharks defenseman Schlemko skates for first time since injury

Sundays game against Dallas, though, will be the fifth in a row that he wont dress.

The Daily Chum: San Jose can (nearly) skate its full lineup as Jannik Hansen joins the team

Now... nobody get hurt... be safe. For the first time in what feels like months, Pete DeBoer can (nearly) pick his lines from a full roster. Jannik Hansen will make his debut as a San Jose Shark against the Washington Capitals on Thursday night and, perhaps as importantly, it appears everyone else will be back and healthy for the occasion. The only exception to this may be David Schlemko, who remains day-to-day with a lower body injury. The defender didn’t play in either game during the Sharks back-to-back road trip in the central time zone, though there’s a chance he’ll suit back...

Sharks vs. Jets Preview: San Jose looks to right ship in Winnipeg

Step one: Actually show up for the game A lot of things can be said about the Sharks’ loss to the Wild on Saturday evening and how it pertains to Team Teal’s contest against the Jets tonight. San Jose played without David Schlemko, Joonas Donskoi and Jannik Hansen. Marcus Sorensen played only eight minutes. Micheal Haley made the best offensive play of the night. Some games call for nuance and others call for simplicity: For the Sharks to beat the Jets in tonight’s contest, with puck drop set for 5 p.m. PT, they need to show up. Minnesota is a good team, but San Jose played like a...

Quick Bite: Sharks leave two points with Wild for safekeeping

Wild take back their crown atop the Central division with a solid win over San Jose in Minnesota The Sharks were taught a lesson in Minnesota tonight, and were stymied by Minnesota’s defense and league best goaltender on the way to a 2-1 regulation loss. The Sharks’ special teams are becoming two divergent narratives, as their excellent penalty kill and less excellent power play battle for dominance in our hearts and minds. San Jose’s defensive depth was tested, as David Schlemko sat out with an upper body injury sustained early in the Sharks last game against Vancouver, and Dylan...
