Quick Bites: Aaron Dell perfect in net

Oh yeah, and some guy named Erik Karlsson scored. The Sharks defense was not perfect tonight, but goalie Aaron Dell was. Dell stopped 30 shots and the Sharks won 4-0 over the St. Louis Blues. The heat map from Natural Stat Trick tells the story there: Courtesy: Natural Stat Trick Sharks goalie Aaron Dell makes 30 saves to lead the Sharks to a 4-0 win over the St. Louis Blues Given the way Martin Jones has played to start the season, this finish by Dell may lead to some rumblings about a goalie change. I’m not starting them, I swear, I’m just saying it could...

Eagles at Barons preview: Cuda from the Cleve

Fun times in San Jose today! San Jose! From 2001 to 2006, the San Jose Sharks’ American Hockey League affiliate played in the city of Cleveland as the Cleveland Barons, playing out of then-Gund Arena (now the Quicken Loans Center). The Sharks owned the franchise, and the Gund family owned and operated the arena in an amicable arrangement. The Barons moved to Cleveland in a time of much restructuring for the American Hockey League, which closed the 2000-2001 season with 20 teams and opened the 2001-2002 season with 27 teams. Six teams were admitted to the AHL from the folded International...

In 21st game, Erik Karlsson finally scores his first goal for Sharks

Erik Karlsson scored his first goal for San Jose, and Aaron Dell earned his fourth career shutout in leading the Sharks to a 4-0 victory over the St. Louis Blues at SAP Center on Saturday night. Karlsson has taken some time to adjust to his new team after being acquired from Ottawa just before the start of training camp. The two-time Norris Trophy-winning defenseman came into the game with 11 assists and a minus-9 rating before delivering in a big way against the Blues with a goal and an assist during San Jose’s three-goal outburst in the second period.

Blues 0, Sharks 4: Karlsson goal sparks offensive wave to shut out Blues

And yeah, it was a beauty. After losing 4-0 to the St. Louis Blues over a week ago, the San Jose Sharks pitched a 4-0 shutout to go 3-1 on their current homestand. In the first period, the Sharks were in control of the puck with a 66 percent corsi for, leading to 13 shots for and nine scoring chances, but Chad Johnson was able to keep them off the scoresheet. Aaron Dell was no slouch, either. Despite the Blues losing the possession battle, they were able to record eight shots and eight scoring chances, which Dell was able to deny. Then in the second came the moment every Sharks fan has...

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

Sharks look for a better showing against the Blues this time around. Over a week ago, the San Jose Sharks put out a less than stellar performance against the St. Louis Blues to conclude their two-game road trip. Tonight, the Blues are in San Jose, as the Sharks continue their six-game homestand and are looking to give a better showing in front of the SAP Center crowd. Newcomer Ryan O’Reilly leads the Blues in goals (10) and points (23) while Vladimir Tarasenko is right behind him with six goals and 16 points; however, the team as a whole is underachieving with a 7-7-3 record, which puts...

Sharks recall Gambrell, assign Chartier to Barracuda

Another twist in the Gambrell Watch saga has just begun. The San Jose Sharks have made a surprise forward swap this morning, sending Rourke Chartier down to the San Jose Barracuda and recalling Dylan Gambrell from the ‘Cuda to take his place. The choice to flip their young centers before tonight’s tilt against the St. Louis Blues seems to be an effort to give each of them a much needed spark. Chartier has been scratched with regularity this season, and when he does play he’s struggled to earn a lot of ice time. Take Thursday’s game against the Maple Leafs, where he played a team low...

Keeping up with the Pups: Vladislav Kotkov off to good start

The Sharks’ other Russian prospect in the QMJHL is pretty good too. Last season, a 17-year-old Vladislav Kotkov came over to North America and was able to have a successful rookie season, scoring 21 goals and 49 points; not bad for someone who’s adjusting to a new country, culture and style of play. Despite that, he went undrafted over the summer, and the Sharks were able to sign the forward in free agency. To start the season, it’s his fellow countryman and Sharks prospect Ivan Chekhovich who is stealing the headlines right now in the QMJHL, but Kotkov is putting together a solid...

Blues at Sharks Preview: Strength meets strength in Western Conference boondoggle

Good offense, meet good defense. The Sharks’ (10-7-3, first in the Pacific) season to date has been marked by an impressive offense combined with spotty defense and a bad goaltending season. While the team has typically dominated — on the season, they’ve taken nearly 58 percent of all 5-on-5 score- and venue-adjusted shots — in the shot department, they’ve allowed their fare share of dangerous chances against on defense, and their goaltenders are again propping up their penalty kill rate. Still, coming to town today will be a lowly Blues team (6-7-3, seventh in the Central) that,...

Winning Play: Marner outsmarts Sharks

At 6-foot-0, 175 pounds, playmaker Mitch Marner does not fit the traditional mold of a penalty killer. But it’s a new NHL, where brains matter more than brawn, and it’s a modern Toronto Maple Leafs, where Marner (16) averages almost a minute a game on the kill. He’s already played more on the PK through 19 games this season (17:21) than he did in his first two years combined. The San Jose Sharks power play was looking to break a 3-3 deadlock in the second period, when Marner’s smarts broke Kasperi Kapanen (24) free. The Sharks had just gained the zone, hence net front...
