Player Power Rankings, Week 7: Tomas Pit

Photo by Sean M. Haffey/ Get it? Like Mosh pit? This is like the seventh Hertl pun I’ve had to come up with this year, so he either needs to play worse or I need to get a thesaurus. Welcome to Fear the Fin’s weekly(ish) Player Power Rankings! Everybody likes arbitrary rankings, if for no other reason than to argue with them. Therefore, the best rankings there are are the worst rankings, and by that metric, ours are the very best on the internet. Enjoy our very good / very bad rankings! Two weeks ago, we noted, with desperation in our hearts, that the San Jose Sharks were a six-game...

Oilers at Sharks Preview: When Oil meets Sharknado

Photo by Ezra Shaw/ The seeds of a renewed rivalry might be sprouting. The last time I wrote a game preview about the San Jose Sharks (10-10-1) was back on November 2, which coincidentally was also the last time the Sharks lost. Since then, San Jose has torn it up, riding a six-game win streak into tonight’s matchup against Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers (13-6-3). I originally thought I shouldn't be allowed back on preview duty in case I’m bad luck, but since my FTF coworkers made the cautious decision to just quarantine me and my desk in a curse-proof bubble until further...

Breaking Down San Jose Sharks Goalie Martin Jones

Breaking Down San Jose Sharks Goalie Martin Jones

Goaltending issues for the San Jose Sharks have been front and center both last season and this. The team’s lead netminder, Martin Jones, has come under enormous scrutiny. His play has been inconsistent, going on close to 100 games now. The Play of Martin Jones Being inconsistent is just that. It doesn’t mean Jones can’t play well. Indeed, he’s started the last six games for the Sharks, all wins. His play has improved from early in the season, yet his numbers remain specious. He’s allowed 17 goals in the six games, a goals against average of 2.76 and a save percentage of .891. In...

Surging Sharks Have Won 6 Straight

The San Jose Sharks immediately felt the pressure of a new hockey season and were instantly put on the back-pedal after dropping four games in a row to start 2019. They continued to have a horrible October and were 4-8-1 by the end of the month. The team has been recovering during November, and have […] The post Surging Sharks Have Won 6 Straight appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

Pacific Division Round Up: Knights break major slump with huge win

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports We’re as disappointed as you are. The San Jose Sharks are riding high on a six-game winning streak. Finally, things are on the up. What makes this even more enjoyable is that the Vegas Golden Knights haven’t been so lucky. Sure, they had a huge 6-0 win over the Calgary Flames on Sunday, but don’t let that distract you from the fact they lost five-straight games. Here's the latest news and notes from the rest of the division: Anaheim Ducks (10-9-2) The Anaheim Ducks still sit above the Sharks in the Pacific. They played three games this week,...

Is Radim Simek the Key Piece to the San Jose Sharks?

After a lackluster start to the season, the San Jose Sharks have pieced together a six-game win streak. These six games coincide perfectly with Radim Simek’s return to the Sharks’ blue line. Simek, sidelined last March with a torn ACL and MCL, got back to speed quickly and has looked confident to start his season.

San Jose Sharks win ugly and extend winning streak to six games

Red Wings at Sharks: Lines, gamethread, and where to watch

Photo by Brandon Magnus/NHLI via Six in a row! Six in a row! Six in a row! Don’t look now, but the San Jose Sharks (9-10-1, 7th Pacific) have won five in a row, and are one more win away from getting back to a .500 record after their truly horrendous start to the 2019-20 season, led by a suddenly prolific offense that’s averaged 4.6 goals per game over those five after averaging just 2.4 over the course of their first 15 (I’m just kidding, you can look, it’s really quite nice). At first glance, tonight’s match up with the visiting Detroit Red Wings (7-12-2, 8th Atlantic) may...

Red Wings at Sharks Preview: Winged Wheel wraps up West Coast swing

John Hefti-USA TODAY Sports Sharks’ streak is on the line. Once upon a time, the San Jose Sharks (9-10-1) and the Detroit Red Wings (7-12-2) were bitter rivals who clashed time and time again in the playoffs, struggling to see which powerhouse would continue on to compete for Lord Stanley’s Cup. Less than 10 years later, both teams are simply trying to claw their way out of the NHL’s basement. On the bright side, they’re both trending in the right direction. The Red Wings are 3-1-1 in their last five games, while the Sharks are riding a five-game win streak. Trouble is, neither...

Top 5 Alternatives to Sharks Goalie Jones

Facing the San Jose Sharks, opponents are already smelling the blood in the water or, more accurately, the crease. Dating back to last season, goaltending continues to be the Achilles heel for an otherwise-contending team on paper. Unfortunately for the Sharks, No. 1 goalie Martin Jones’ stats leave a paper-thin margin for error each game.  […] The post Top 5 Alternatives to Sharks Goalie Jones appeared first on The Hockey Writers.
