Quick Bite: Sharks stun Blue Jackets for sixth straight win

San Jose finishes off a perfect 6–0 road trip. That was fun. It looked like the Sharks’ winning streak was going to end at five, but instead four unanswered goals in the third period gave them a 5–3 victory to cap a perfect 6–0 road trip for the first time in franchise history. Playing just 19 hours after stepping off the ice in Pittsburgh, the Sharks got off to a fast start, dominating play for the vast majority of the first period. All four lines had scoring chances on Sergei Bobrovsky before the second line cashed in at 16:27 when Patrick Marleau tapped in Joonas Donskoi’s...

Patrick Marleau first Shark to 1,000 points

Mr. Shark etches his name in the San Jose record book. Watching Patrick Marleau play night in and night out can be deceiving. There's no way this guy has played more than 1,300 NHL games, right? There's no way someone who has been playing since 1997-98 can be this fast and this agile after so many minutes logged, goals scored and key passes made. Yet, there he is. Marleau hasn't played fewer than 70 games in a single NHL season, barring the lockout season, of course. He leads the Sharks in nearly every category worth leading in. No one has scored more goals than Marleau, played in more...

Sharks extend win streak on Karlsson’s OT goal

Karlsson scored 3:45 into overtime and Martin Jones made 34 saves in his third shutout of the season, giving San Jose a 1-0 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday. Joonas Donskoi set up the winner on a 2-on-1 with Karlsson, who took the cross-ice pass and shot high past goalie Steve Mason. San Jose has won each game by one goal during its road winning streak. The Sharks began overtime with a 4-on-3 power play for 1 minute, 42 seconds, after Philadelphia’s Wayne Simmonds was whistled for tripping late in the third period. Patrick Marleau, one point from 1,000 in his career,...

3rd Period Public Skate: Sharks 5, Bruins 3

What the fresh hell was that? Welp, that wasn't a good twenty minutes. Was 3-2 Bruins after a Loui Eriksson tally (assisted by David Krejci and...Dennis Seidenberg?), then bad stuff happened, including a penalty parade: Melker Karlsson was left wide open for Joe Thornton to pass to in the slot. 3-3. PPG for Patrick Marleau after a Too Much Man penalty (the first and second of three penalties taken in a row by the Bruins). PPG for Joe Thornton after Ryan Spooner went off for tripping Tomas Hertl The Bruins PK looked positively miserable for those. Viewer discretion is advised for the...

Patrick Marleau’s goal lifts Sharks in OT

Patrick Marleau scored by converting a rebound 2:59 into overtime as the Sharks beat Buffalo 2-1 on Saturday to improve to 2-0 to start their six-game road trip and end an eight-game skid against the Sabres. Marc-Edouard Vlasic had a goal and assist, goalie Martin Jones stopped 30 shots and San Jose won for just the second time in 16 visits to Buffalo — and for the first since Dec. 2, 2005, in Joe Thornton’s first game with the franchise. The Sharks were applying pressure in the Sabres zone, and his shot from the high slot hit the right post and caromed to the left of the...
