The Morning After: Never a doubt

Life is good for the San Jose Sharks. You weren’t worried when the Blue Jackets went up 3–1 in the third period last night, were you? I know I wasn’t. Unanswered goals by Joe Pavelski, Brent Burns (on the power play!), Brenden Dillon, and Pavelski again (hat tip to Sergei Bobrovsky for leaving his net too soon) were all the Sharks needed to skate away with their sixth win in a row and sweep their six-games-in-ten-days east coast road trip. If the Sharks have exhibited one weakness during their winning streak, it’s the power play. In the first five games of the road trip, they’d...

Sharks at Blue Jackets Lines: Stalock in net

The backup goalie gets the start in the last game of the road trip. As expected, Alex Stalock will close out this six-game road trip for the Sharks. With only about nineteen hours between games, we'll likely have to wait until warmups to find out whether there are any other lineup changes. As for Pete DeBoer, he's reportedly on a flight from New York to Columbus, but it's unknown whether he'll be at Nationwide Arena by game time.

Sharks vs. Penguins Lines: Jones in net, lines juggled

San Jose turns to Jones against Pittsburgh. After playing with a short bench for much of Thursday's win over Philadelphia, the Sharks have some new lines for tonight's contest against Pittsburgh. Matt Nieto, Chris TIerney and Mike Brown are your fourth line of the night, while Nikolay Goldobin will slot into the Tomas Hertl line with Tommy Wingels. Matt Tennyson replaces Mirco Mueller on defense and Martin Jones will start again. I expect Alex Stalock to get his chance tomorrow in Columbus. Projected Sharks Lines Melker Karlsson – Joe Thornton – Joe Pavelski Joonas Donskoi – Patrick...

Sharks caught off-guard by Melker Karlsson

Karlsson, signed in May, 2014, after five-plus seasons in Sweden, has joined Pavelski and Thornton on the Sharks' first line.

Steve Mason somehow avoids being embarrassed on this play

How did the Sharks not score here? Steve Mason, god love him, nearly put the Sharks up 1-0 as he misread a puck that came off the end board and bounced back to Joe Pavelski. Luckily for him, Luke Schenn was there to save the day.

Quick Bite: Five Sharks score to beat Bruins

Five different Sharks scored to remain a perfect 3-0 on the east coast road trip It was a nail biter from start to finish, but the Sharks managed to come away with their third straight victory tonight in Boston. Joe Pavelski opened the scoring only 48 seconds into the game: i'm failing all over the place tonight. Pavelski goal, featuring the actual goal: (s/t @Raffi_Torres_13) pic.twitter.com/YNP3LK8il9 — Stephanie (@myregularface) November 18, 2015 The Bruins tied the game a few minutes later and got themselves a one goal lead on their first powerplay. Fortunately, Joonas Donskoi...

Joe Pavelski tallies 500th career point

He has the third most points of any Shark. Captain Joe Pavelski tallied his 500th career point Saturday, continuing the remarkable career of the center drafted in the seventh round. He picked up an assist (his sixth on the season) on Marc-Edouard Vlasic's power-play goal early in the first period against the Sabres. Here's the video. Pavelski is coming off back-to-back 35+ goal seasons and has already scored nine goals for the Sharks this season. He's been a highlight in a bit of a seesaw campaign for San Jose so far. There's still a long way to go to catch up to Joe Thornton and Patrick...

Sharks vs. Ducks Lines: Mike Brown back in the lineup

That's some fourth line. Mike Brown is back in the lineup, taking up a spot on the right wing of Micheal Haley on the fourth line tonight. So I suppose there's a chance they both try to fight the same guy at the same time? Or maybe they'll even fight each other, just to makes things easier. And I guess in this situation Matt Nieto just has to watch these guys hit each other. Awkward.

Sharks feast on slumping Panthers in 5-2 win

Stalock bests Montoya in Bay Area battle of the backups. The San Jose Sharks sent the reeling Florida Panthers to a fourth straight defeat, posting a 5-2 decision at SAP Center. The Sharks got off to a quick start, pumping two shots past Al Montoya before the midway point of the first period. Brent Burns opened the scoring with an unassisted goal at the 6:37 mark and Joonas Donskoi, a former Panther draft choice, followed up 2:49 later, cleaning up a loose puck after a goalmouth scramble. Donskoi's second of the season was assisted by Joe Pavelski and Joe Thornton. Vincent Trocheck...

Sharks’ struggles continue with loss to Blue Jackets

The Sharks went 0-for-4 with the man advantage to remain without a power-play goal in five home games. The Blue Jackets scored on consecutive shots to break a 2-2 tie and take a 4-2 lead into the final period. San Jose tied the game 2-2 at 11:56 when rookie left wing Joonas Donskoi stripped Columbus left wing Nick Foligno on the boards and fed Joe Pavelski for a mini-breakaway that the right wing turned into his team-leading eighth goal and second of the night. Three failed power plays followed, but gave the Sharks sustained momentum for the first time in the game until the final two...

GIF: Joonas Donskoi makes brilliant play, Big Pavelski does the rest

Donskoi with the strip, Pavelski with the dance and the goal. Turns out this Joonas Donskoi kid is a pretty good hockey player. He showed it tonight with a nifty steal which led to a brilliant pass and an absolutely dynamite goal by Joe Pavelski. See for yourself. Pavelski again, 2-2 game pic.twitter.com/zuySb5187z — Stephanie (@myregularface) November 4, 2015 That's the Big Pavelski's second goal of the night. He's now scored in five straight games. Here's a look at his first goal of the game, since we can't get enough of watching Pavelski score. Pavelski goal...

Burns’ late goal helps Sharks top Avalanche

Burns made it 3-2 when he came down the right boards and sent a snap shot through traffic and past goalie Semyon Varlamov. Pavelski had an empty-net goal 19 seconds after Burns’ second goal, and Colorado made it a one-goal game on Dennis Everberg’s shot with 1:05 left. Colorado had a chance to take the lead midway through the second when it went on the power play, but San Jose struck instead. Burns’ shot from the right boards went under Matt Duchene’s right arm and past Varlamov at 12:03 of the period. Colorado scored two power-play goals for the first time in nine games.
