Jones is victor in Sharks-Canadiens goalie clinic

Goalie Martin Jones outdueled Carey Price as the Sharks continued their home domination of Montreal with a 2-1 win at sold-out SAP Center Friday night. Brent Burns and Joe Pavelski scored first-period goals while Jones made 31 saves as the hosts wrapped up a busy portion of their schedule — 10 games in 18 nights — in impressive fashion. The Canadiens were able to break through on the second half of the double minor and deny Jones’ shutout bid when left wing Artturi Lehkonen scored a 6-on-4 power-play goal with Price pulled for the extra attacker at 18:43 of the third period. After...

Sharks Martin Jones: young goalie with big upside

If Canadiens goalie Carey Price is the gold standard in today’s NHL, Martin Jones of the Sharks just might be silver. The talk surrounding Jones centers on his calm demeanor, his efficient moves around the crease and his consistent approach to games, whether it’s preseason or the Stanley Cup Finals. Jones proved last year that Doug Wilson’s gamble, sending a 2016 first-round pick and a prospect (Sean Kuraly) to Boston in exchange for the ex-Kings backup, was a solid move. “For me, he’s one of the top goalies in the league, and he’s just getting better,” Sharks coach Peter...

What we learned from the Kings' 4-1 loss to the Sharks

They threw everything at the San Jose Sharks for most of the second period and came away with only one goal in a 4-1 loss Wednesday that ended the Kings’ five-game win streak. Here’s what we learned: The Kings’ usually rigid defense...

Brent Burns’ goal 19 seconds into OT lifts Sharks

Brent Burns blasted a power-play goal 19 seconds into overtime as the Sharks beat the Arizona Coyotes 2-1 at SAP Center on Tuesday. The Sharks earned only their second power play of the game with three-tenths of a second left on the third-period clock when Arizona center Martin Hanzal high-sticked San Jose left wing Melker Karlsson. The Coyotes enjoyed the only power play of the period, but could manage only one shot after Sharks defenseman Brenden Dillon interfered with Arizona center Laurent Daughin. Right wing Radim Vrbata hit a wide-open Max Domi with a cross-ice pass, and the...

KNBR Conversation with the Sharks’ Brent Burns

KNBR Conversation with the Sharks’ Brent Burns An edited transcript of an interview with the Sharks’ Brent Burns, who agreed Tuesday to an eight-year contract extension: How did this all get done? Did you always want to stay here or did you think, “You know, it’d be kind of cool to go to free agency”? Do contract negotiations affect your play or do you just play hockey and forget about it? How much of it was looking at this team and knowing you’ve got a Stanley Cup contender here? Getting a taste of it (in the Stanley Cup Finals) last year, you realize how fun the journey...

Dell, Marleau helps Sharks top Islanders

The 27-year-old Dell beat the Islanders 3-2 on Oct. 18 during his NHL debut. Nonetheless, Dell was up to the task as he nursed a one-goal lead while the Isles pressured hard over the final period. The Sharks struck for goals 34 seconds apart on consecutive shots early in the middle period to take a 2-1 lead into the second intermission. Captain Joe Pavelski scored his seventh goal of the season at 5:09 and defenseman Brent Burns added his team-high eighth at 5:43 in rapid-fire succession after ex-Sharks goalie Thomas Greiss had stymied the hosts over the first 25 minutes. Left wing Matt...

Goalie Martin Jones made 26 stops for his second shutout of the season and the Sharks got goals from four players en route to a 4-0 win over New Jersey on Monday night.
