Sharks edge defensive-minded Predators 2-0

The San Jose goalie, making his first appearance in four games, stopped 29 shots (18 in the third period) for his second shutout of the season and the 28th of his career. The Sharks played one of their best periods in recent games at the outset Saturday, scoring the only goal of the first 20 minutes while outshooting the stingy Predators 18-7. Thornton corralled a hard dump-in on the right boards and passed to right wing Joe Pavelski, who keyed the sequence by spinning and forwarding the puck in one motion off the far post to surprise Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne. The San Jose penalty kill...

Preview: Wild @ Coyotes

Minnesota squares off against the artist formerly known as Phoenix. The Wild continue their roadtrip tonight as they face off with the Coyotes. This is the second of three meetings between Arizona and Minnesota this season. Minnesota won the first game, 2-0 back on October 23rd. The all-time series between these two teams is pretty dead even, with Phoenix edging the Wild, 23-22-6. Last time out, Christian Folin netted his first career goal to tie the game at 1:03 in the third period before Joe Pavelski netted the game-winning goal 45 seconds later. Minnesota did not participate in a pregame...

Playing the System: Pavelski's Game Winner

Thomas Vanek played a horrible part in the San Jose Sharks game winning goal on Thursday night, but he definitely was not the only guilty party on the ice for the Minnesota Wild. As the Minnesota Wild have learned this season, having defenseman jump into the rush is a great way to create offense. Not only does the defenseman usually add a numbers advantage to the rush, but often times it creates confusion for players trying to identify their man in defensive coverage. It was confusion and some world class puck watching that led to Joe Pavelski's game winning goal on Thursday night. The play...

Goodrow scores, Vlasic injured in Sharks win over Edmonton

Top defenseman was held out for "precautionary reasons" according to head coach Todd McLellan. Despite blowing a 2-0 lead in the first period, the Sharks managed to avoid the indignity of suffering a second straight loss to the lowly Edmonton Oilers. Barclay Goodrow scored his first NHL goal, with Melker Karlsson picking up an assist on that play for his first big league point, Joe Pavelski added two more and Logan Couture tipped a Scott Hannan point shot for the eventual winner in a 5-2 San Jose victory. What the Sharks did lose tonight was their best defenseman and arguably most valuable...

Sharks fall to Coyotes in shootout

San Jose had an opportunity to win in overtime when Arizona’s Shane Doan high-sticked Matt Nieto, but the Sharks’ power play failed to score despite producing three shots. San Jose's Joe Pavelski scored his 200th career goal at 7:47 on the power play to answer an early-period tie-breaking goal by Doan -- his seventh of the season, all of which have come on the road. After Arizona's Mikkel Boedker fanned on an open net that could have made it 3-0 during a Coyotes power play, the Sharks went the other way and scored short-handed. Goodrow's cross-ice feed over the stick of Coyotes...
