Sharks recall defenseman Matt Tennyson after reassigning Burish

Right-handed shot could be a nice fit with Mirco Mueller on the third pairing. With Adam Burish clearing waivers earlier today, the Sharks reassigned the veteran forward to Worcester and immediately used his open roster spot to recall defenseman Matt Tennyson from the AHL. Tennyson, 24, has three goals, six points and 34 shots on goal in 17 games with Worcester this season. Just as importantly, he's a right-handed shot capable of taking over the third pairing right-side slot vacated by Jason Demers. On the surface, this seems to be a move made in order to pair Tennyson with Mirco Mueller...

Reaves scored 2:25 into the third period when he grabbed a loose puck near the side of Winnipeg’s net, spun around and sent a low shot by goalie Ondrej Pavelec for the 3-2 lead. Jaden Schwartz and David Backes each scored on the power play for St. Louis (13-6-1) and Paul Stastny added an empty-netter. The Blues were without defenseman Jay Bouwmeester, who had a lower-body injury in The absence ended Bouwmeester’s “ironman” streak at 737 NHL games, what had been the longest active streak in the league.

Sharks fall to Coyotes in shootout

San Jose had an opportunity to win in overtime when Arizona’s Shane Doan high-sticked Matt Nieto, but the Sharks’ power play failed to score despite producing three shots. San Jose's Joe Pavelski scored his 200th career goal at 7:47 on the power play to answer an early-period tie-breaking goal by Doan -- his seventh of the season, all of which have come on the road. After Arizona's Mikkel Boedker fanned on an open net that could have made it 3-0 during a Coyotes power play, the Sharks went the other way and scored short-handed.

Sharks' home woes continue in shootout loss to Arizona

San Jose lost the fourth of only seven games at SAP Center this season, dropping a 4-3 shootout decision to the Arizona Coyotes after digging themselves out of a two-goal hole

NHL results, Nov. 21-22

After scoring just one goal in the first two games of their road trip, three of the Blues’ four lines registered goals in a 3-2 victory over the Senators. Vladmir Tarasenko pumped in his 12th goal of the season, and the Blues also picked up much-needed offense from Alexander Steen and Maxim Lapierre. The three even-strength goals outweighed the Senators’ two power-play goals, as Steen’s fourth goal of the season with 7 minutes, 15 seconds left in the second period went down as the game-winner, helping the club avoid its first three-game losing streak of the season. Alex Khokhlachev,...

The San Jose Sharks are having an up-and-down season, but not Joe Thornton -- the player who took the most heat in the offseason for last spring's playoff collapse.

Sharks’ early evaluation period is running out

Sharks’ early evaluation period is running out The process may have started with Friday’s trade of defenseman Jason Demers and a draft pick to Dallas for defenseman Brenden Dillon. Offensive numbers (seven goals, 18 points) are good, but a minus-5 rating and 22 penalty minutes on 11 minors suggest there’s work to do. First or second in the league at winning them every year since 2008, the Sharks are middle of the road thus far. Whether or not offseason criticism has provided motivation, the 35-year-old is the team’s most noticeable player most nights. The Sharks are not getting...

Sharks fall to Panthers 3-2 in shootout

Florida outshot San Jose 3-2 during a scoreless overtime when the Sharks had to kill 1:49 of a Panther power play that carried over from the third period. Luongo denied Marleau just minutes earlier on a penalty shot attempt awarded after Florida defenseman Brian Campbell thwarted a breakaway with a slash from behind.
