Sharks at Coyotes Preview: How does one drown in a desert?

The Sharks are taking that undefeated feeling to Arizona. The San Jose Sharks are so hot right now. Last night they took their seventh straight win, thanks to the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Sharks pulled off a 5-2 victory over the team that sunk them in the Stanley Cup Finals in 2016, a memory we will forever suppress. They go into tonight’s game with a win streak against the division’s second-to-last team. The Arizona Coyotes are barely ahead of the Los Angeles Kings in the Pacific. With a 20-22-3 record, things aren’t looking great for them. It should be noted that they are coming...

Penguins 2, Sharks 5: Hat trick must be always

Penguins 2, Sharks 5: Hat trick must be always

The only matchup in the league where one team’s logo ate the other one. The Sharks are still undefeated in 2019 after a strong 5-2 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins. The third line (which I was surprised to learn was the third line and not the second) of Evander Kane, Tomas Hertl and Joonas Donskoi led the hunt. Hertl completed a hat trick on the empty net, and Kane assisted on each of his goals. Four of the Sharks’ defenders recorded at least one point. The Penguins took the lead midway through the first period, but the Sharks ended the period with a 2-1 lead. The Penguins couldn’t...

Penguins at Sharks: Lines, gamethread, and where to watch

The only matchup in the league where one team’s logo ate the other one. The reigning Cup Champio— oh, wait. The Pittsburgh Penguins are back in San Jose, this time with no new hardware to show off in a city that hasn’t been particularly fond of them since they broke everyone’s hearts in 2016. Even though they sit third in the Metropolitan Division, it hasn’t been easy for this year’s Penguins to find success. In the same way, the third-overall Sharks suffered a long stretch where wins were hard to come by. But both teams are finding their footing for that big important push in...

Sharks sign Marcus Sorensen to two-year contract extension

Sharks sign Marcus Sorensen to two-year contract extension

The forward has shown signs of improvement during his three years with the mother club. The San Jose Sharks announced yesterday they have re-signed forward Marcus Sorensen to a two-year contract extension, through the 2020-21 season. The annual average value (AAV) of the contract is $1.5 million, according to Pierre LeBrun. Sorensen is now in his third year with the team and has earned himself an additional two minutes of average ice time over his previous two-season average. Sorensen’s all-situations ice time ranks seventh on the team, and his minutes are a clear cut above the rest of...

Penguins at Sharks Preview: Mind over Maatta

Looking for seven in a row against the reigning Cup champs. Sorry, force of habit. In another edition of the 2016 Cup Final Rematch Spectacular, the Pittsburgh Penguins (25-14-6, 3rd Metropolitan) come to town to take on the San Jose Sharks (27-13-7, 2nd Pacific) tonight. Both teams are riding high: the Sharks are on a league-leading six-game winning streak, and the Penguins having won ten of their last twelve games. San Jose has struggled to make up much ground in the suddenly and unpredictably ultra-competitive Pacific division, despite their recent success. The Sharks’ rise through the...

Pacific Division Round Up: Sharks swim past Golden Knights

Pacific Division Round Up: Sharks swim past Golden Knights

It’s a close race in the Pacific: the Flames, Sharks and Golden Knights find themselves neck and neck and neck. The Pacific Division has proved those who doubted it wrong halfway through the season. Sure, there have been some rough patches (cough, Los Angeles Kings, cough), but teams like the Calgary Flames, Vegas Golden Knights and our San Jose Sharks have made it interesting. It’s a tight race between three teams who have found their groove at the halfway point. It’ll be a fight to the finish, that’s for sure. Here’s how the rest of the division shaped up this week: Anaheim...

Cuda Corner: Barracuda 2, Stockton 1

In the world famous rivalry between Worcester and Adirondack, the Sharks get the last laugh. A lot has changed in the American Hockey League since the Worcester Sharks last took the ice, but there are three things that have remained the same: Roy Sommer, John McCarthy and on-ice success. The San Jose Barracuda, wearing the sweaters of the old Worcester Sharks franchise, pulled out a 2-1 win over the Stockton Heat yesterday afternoon. Kyle Wood scored the game winner at 9:09 of the third period, while Antoine Bibeau turned aside 22 Heat shots for his 13th win of the season. The Barracuda’s...

Winning Play: The other Karlsson slays Sens

The San Jose Sharks were, by their own admission, drained. “Five games in eight days here. Against some good teams, some emotional wins,” noted Joe Pavelski. On top of victories over the Tampa Bay Lightning and Vegas Golden Knights, there was a pre-game ceremony celebrating Brent Burns’s 1,000th game. It was Erik Karlsson’s second game against the Ottawa Senators. They just enjoyed their dads’ trip. Old friends Chris Tierney, Mikkel Boedker and Dylan DeMelo were back in town. They coped with injuries to Marc-Edouard Vlasic and Justin Braun. “The boys in here were tired today,”...
