Joe Thornton and the San Jose Sharks visit the Los Angeles Kings in a Pacific Division battle on Wednesday looking to get back on a positive run against their rival. The San Jose Sharks are 7-2-1 in their last 10 games against the Los Angeles Kings, but have lost each of the last two games in this head-to-head series. The Sharks will try to pick up a win over the Kings on the road Wednesday night and pay out for supporters on the NHL betting lines at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.

Patrick Marleau, Joe Thornton still valuable for Sharks

How quickly those three years have passed, and here we are again wondering what San Jose will do with a pair of aging franchise pillars who seem to have plenty of hockey left in their 37-year-old bodies? Marleau has appeared in all 241 regular-season games since re-signing and has scored 68 goals along with 80 assists for 148 points. Thornton has appeared in all but four games since re-signing and has assisted on 156 goals in addition to scoring 43 for 199 points. Thornton averaged nearly a point per game before the extension (1,167 points in 1,176 career games) and has dipped slightly to...

Sharks prevail again in Los Angeles

Joe Thornton had two assists and Martin Jones made 22 saves for the defending Western Conference champion Sharks, who wrapped up their regular-season series against their biggest rivals with three victories in five games. After Burns scored his 19th goal in the opening minutes, San Jose hung tough through a scoreless third period to continue its recent domination in downtown Los Angeles, including three victories in last season’s first-round playoff series. Peter Budaj stopped 24 shots, but Los Angeles’ power play struggled mightily in the Kings’ final home game before they host the ...

Sharks vs. Jets: Lines, gamethread and where to watch

It’s a Monday ... day ... on ice. The Sharks can snap a two-game skid as they host the Winnipeg Jets at 1 p.m. PT. It looks like San Jose will roll with the same lineup as in their 4-0 loss to the St. Louis Blues according to Friend of the Blog Kevin Kurz. You can see those lines below as where as where you can catch today’s game.

Joe Thornton shoots when he wants

Joe Thornton shoots when he wants

Yes, that includes (slightly) more recently. It seems Joe Thornton has taken more shot attempts recently, something Friend of the Blog Kevin Kurz brought up during Saturday’s game against the St. Louis Blues: Seems like he has been more lately. Took a shot on two-on-one the other night, and drove the net here in the first minute https://t.co/zKbpIQB9Tg— Kevin Kurz (@KKurzCSN) January 15, 2017 He more or less backed off the statement shortly thereafter when looking at Thornton’s shot on goal totals, but I think Kurz is onto something here. I decided to expand the search to shot...

Sharks vs. Jets Preview: San Jose looks to get on track in matinee against Winnipeg

What will the lineup look like? Great question. San Jose hosts Winnipeg for the only time this season at 1 p.m. PT at SAP Center in the first of three meetings between the teams as the Sharks look to snap a two-game losing streak. San Jose finally got its defense healthy on Saturday, so naturally head coach Pete DeBoer may have some decisions to make with his forward group. It appears Joe Thornton escaped further punishment from the NHL Department of Player Safety for his spear of Paul Stastny (good news) but no further update has come on the status of Joonas Donskoi (upper body injury)....

How the Sharks should line up if they have to go without Joe Thornton

How the Sharks should line up if they have to go without Joe Thornton

Prepare for the worst, right? There’s absolutely no defending Joe Thornton on this one. His spear of Paul Stastny absolutely earned him a game misconduct and may very well earn him a suspension. If you haven’t seen the play yet, you can check it out below. Thornton clearly spears Stastny and any insinuation otherwise is at best laughable. Your browser does not support iframes. So let’s prepare for the possibility that the Sharks will go without one of their best players for a few games because of Thornton’s complete absence of discipline. That’s not ideal, but San Jose has...

Sharks outworked by Blues after failing on early chances

SAN JOSE It was a play that Joe Pavelski finishes off nearly every time.On a five-on-three power play in a scoreless game early in the second period, Pavelski was given a perfect feed through the seam from Joe Thornton. The Sharks captain settled the puck and was staring at a wide open net, as goalie Carter Hutton didnt have time to react.

Sharks vs. Blues: Lines, gamethread and where to watch

The defense is healthy for the first time since late December. For the first time since December, the San Jose Sharks will play with a healthy defense. So naturally they’ll have to do it without Joonas Donskoi, who is out with an upper-body injury. David Schlemko is back in the lineup and will play with Brenden Dillon as per usual and we’ll see Micheal Haley on the fourth line with Tommy Wingels and Melker Karlsson.
