Sharks’ Martin Jones shuts out Chicago

Jones made 33 saves for his fifth shutout this season and Patrick Marleau scored a power-play goal in the second period to lead San Jose past Chicago 2-0 on Tuesday night. Marleau’s goal, on the Sharks’ only man advantage, ended his six-game drought and was just his second in his past 17. The Sharks, who ended Chicago’s three-game winning streak, are 10-2-2 in their past 14. Jones rebounded to earn his 12th career shutout after allowing five goals on 29 shots in a 6-2 loss at Nashville on Saturday. Mashinter deflected in a bouncing puck off his right shinguard with no kicking...

The Morning After: Just like old times

San Jose beat Chicago using a familiar formula. The more things change the more they stay the same. The Sharks beat the Blackhawks on Tuesday night behind a good power play and goals from Patrick Marleau and Joe Thornton. Just like old times. Okay, so maybe a strong defensive effort and a 33-save performance from Martin Jones had something to do with it, but there's something to be said for the importance of the Sharks most tenured superstars. San Jose's power play has been excellent this season (yes it has, don't argue with me) and the Sharks took advantage of the only opportunity they got...

Quick Bite: Sharks shut out Blackhawks to end road trip

San Jose picks up its second W since the All-Star Break. Facing the Blackhawks for the third and final time in the 2015–16 regular season, the Sharks picked up a big 2–0 win behind goals from Patrick Marleau and Joe Thornton and 33 saves by Martin Jones. Chicago struck first near the end of a quiet first period when a shot ricocheted off former Shark Brandon Mashinter's leg and past Jones—or so it seemed. Pete DeBoer used his coach's challenge to see if Dennis Rasmussen interfered with Jones on the play, and the on-ice officials changed the call to no goal upon review. There appeared...

Sharks: Same results, but anything but a broken record

There’s no feeling of outside distraction or festering controversy in the room as was the case last season, whether it involved the no-captain issue, a stale coaching message or simply not enough depth throughout the lineup to last over 82 games. Logan Couture’s return to health was a must, but DeBoer’s handling of line combinations for maximum depth is impressive. With Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau and Couture centering each of the first three lines, the Sharks have shown during their recent 8-0-2 run what regular-season depth means in terms of positive results. Though the Sharks...

Evegeni Malkin thinks Patrick Marleau is NHL's most underrated player

I'm liking Geno more and more all the time. The Players' Tribune is at this year's All-Star Game in Nashville and passed out a list of questionnaire's to a few All Stars, one of whom was Pittsburgh Penguin forward Evgeni Malkin. There's some good stuff in here, including a great stick figure self portrait, but the most important to Sharks fans is who he marked down as the most underrated player in the NHL...Patrick Marleau. It's an interesting take, as I wouldn't even consider Marleau the most underrated player on the Sharks (I know, I know, picking Marc-Edouard Vlasic is basically a...

Jeremy Roenick is exceedingly boring

Let's make this the last time we spare brain cells on his words. There's not much worth saying about former Shark Jeremy Roenick these days. As an analyst for NBC Sports, Roenick hasn't ever had much to say that makes much sense. His extremely weird feud with Patrick Marleau has been a point of discussion since the "gutless" comment in 2011 and he got back on the wagon again this weekend. The basic beef seems to be that the Sharks could be better off without Marleau because his teammates are indifferent to his locker room presence. If we're to accept that as true, and we don't really...

Sharks extend points streak to seven games

Tommy Wingels and Chris Tierney scored first-period goals, Martin Jones stopped 23 shots and the Sharks beat the Arizona Coyotes 3-1 on Thursday. Patrick Marleau added an empty-net goal as the Sharks extended their points streak to a season-best seven games and moved ahead of the Coyotes into second place in the Pacific Division. The Coyotes entered 10-1-2 against division foes, one of the key reasons they’ve gone from the NHL’s second-worst record a year ago to a playoff contender.

Four current Sharks named to 25th Anniversary Team

Brent Burns and Marc-Edouard Vlasic make up defensive pairing. Four current San Jose Sharks were named to the 25th Anniversary First Team on Tuesday and a total of five were named to either the first or second team. Brent Burns and Marc-Edouard Vlasic are the Sharks First Team defensive pairing, while Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau and Owen Nolan make up the forward line. Unsurprisingly Evgenvi Nabokov was named the netminder of the First Team. Joe Pavelski is the only current Shark on the Second Team. He's joined by Jonathan Cheechoo and Mike Ricci on the forward line, while Dan Boyle and...

Patrick Marleau set to play 500th consecutive game
