Game 43: Sharks vs. New York Rangers

The best defenseman in franchise history will play his first game in San Jose since signing with New York last summer. On the night the greatest defenseman in Sharks franchise history makes his return to the Bay Area, the best forward in franchise history will likely draw into the lineup for San Jose as well. Joe Thornton is expected to center Patrick Marleau and Matt Nieto tonight as the Sharks host Dan Boyle and defending Eastern Conference champions the New York Rangers in the first game of what will be an eight-of-nine-games stretch at home.

Game 42: Sharks vs. St. Louis Blues

Joe Thornton won't be in the lineup as the Sharks take on the Blues. Having spent seven days on injured reserve, Joe Thornton is eligible to return to the lineup tonight when the Sharks take on the Blues in St. Louis, hoping to avenge their 7-2 loss on home ice just five days ago. San Jose's number one center was on the ice for the team's morning skate today but didn't participate in line rushes so it's still unclear whether he'll actually draw in for the game. Regardless, and despite being routed by the Blues earlier in the week, the Sharks went 12-1-4 in the final seventeen games of the...

Vlasic downs Jets with five seconds remaining

A buzzer-beater from Vlasic got the Sharks back in the win column in Winnipeg. With the Sharks' best forward out of the lineup due to injury, their best defenseman stepped up in a huge way. With five seconds left in regulation, Marc-Edouard Vlasic snuck in from the point after an offensive-zone faceoff was won by the Sharks, took a pass from Logan Couture and rifled the puck short side to beat Jets goaltender Michael Hutchinson and break a 2-2 deadlock. All around, San Jose's second full game without Joe Thornton went a whole lot better than their first even if the star center's absence on...

Sharks recall Hamilton, place Thornton on injured reserve

23-year-old forward has been called up from the AHL. With Joe Thornton likely to miss his second consecutive game with an upper-body injury tomorrow in Winnipeg, the Sharks have recalled forward Freddie Hamilton from Worcester. Thornton has also been placed on injured reserve, retroactive to December 31st, in order to clear the requisite roster spot. Given the seven-day minimum for which a player must be on IR, that makes Thornton eligible to return to the Sharks lineup for Thursday's game in St. Louis.' Hamilton, who was surpassed by the likes of Chris Tierney, Barclay Goodrow, Melker...
