Offense comes alive in the Windy City
Sharks knock off the Blackhawks 7-3
by Mike Lee
The Sharks always seem to be on the road, and visiting barns have been less than inviting. They finally had some success in a foreign arena. San Jose kicked off another quick 2-game jaunt away from SAP Center with a stop at the United Center in Chicago on Sunday night. The offense came alive against the downtrodden Blackhawks, scoring 7 goals in a 7-3 knockout of their hosts. Seven different Sharks scored goals in one of the best showings of the season.

Sharks avoid Stars season sweep
Timo Meier scores another pair to pace SJ
by Mike Lee
Timo Meier continued to wield a hot hand, turning in another 2-goal game to propel the Sharks to a 3-2 win over the visiting Dallas Stars on Thursday night. San Jose avoided dropping a third consecutive game to the Stars and the season sweep with the win. Meier has been the Sharks primary goal scorer as of late. His first tally helped San Jose tie the Stars, followed by another tally which would give the Sharks the lead for good.

Meier leads Sharks over Devils
San Jose splits season series with New Jersey
by Mike Lee
The Sharks had a score to settle with the New Jersey Devils after gagging up a win on the East Coast back in October. San Jose exacted some revenge on the Devils by grabbing a lead and holding it this time in a 5-2 win at SAP Center. The Sharks blew a 3rd period lead the last time these two teams played, but San Jose built on a 3rd period lead this time around en route to their 16th win of the season.

Quick home pit stop nets a win
Shark split season series with Carolina with 5-1 victory
by Mike Lee
The Sharks returned home after their abysmal 5-game road trip on Wednesday night with a quick 1-game homestand against the Carolina Hurricanes. Much like their win in Montreal, the Sharks returned to a focus on defense and goaltending which resulted in a victory. San Jose also balanced their scoring with five skaters potting goals in a 5-1 win over the Hurricanes at SAP Center.

Sharks end skid in Montreal
Martin Jones stops 40 shots to propel San Jose
by Mike Lee
The road trip that wasn't finally ended on Sunday night. What is wasn't was a complete disaster. The Sharks salvaged the final game with a 3-1 win in Montreal to end a 6-game road losing streak. San Jose scored early and counter punched when the Canadiens tried to strike. An infusion of youth in the lineup helped resuscitate a roster that was in dire need of change as the Sharks have spiraled out of the Pacific Division lead int he last week.

Special teams dooms San Jose
Maple Leafs score three power play goals to sink Sharks
by Mike Lee
The Sharks entered Wednesday night's game in Toronto with the league's 2nd ranked penalty kill, but even that was exposed by the Maple Leafs in another 5-3 defeat. The Sharks completed their home and home series with the Eastern Conference opponent by dropping both games by the same score. San Jose continued to under perform on their 5-game road trip, but this one was decided by a penalty kill that imploded by allowing three goals on the man advantage.

Good enough to lose in Buffalo
Sharks comeback late, only to lose in overtime
by Mike Lee
The Sharks are solidifying their position as a mediocre hockey team. Win one, lose one is the theme through the first 25 games this season. They followed up their 6-0 tail whipping by the Vegas Golden Knights by dropping a 3-2 overtime defenseman to the red hot Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night. The Sharks were 9 minutes from getting shutout for a second straight game, but late heroics by Joe Pavelski salvaged a point in the standings for the ho-hum Sharks.

Sinful effort dooms Sharks
Golden Knights continue their dominance over SJ
by Mike Lee
When the Sharks were eliminated from the playoffs last spring by the Vegas Golden Knights, they should have circled November 24th on their calendars. That was the day they would finally get a crack at exacting some retribution on the Knights for the unceremonious exit. San Jose responded on Saturday night by rolling over to the Knights in a 6-0 whipping. Much like Game 1 of last springs playoff series with Vegas, the Sharks had no answer for an opponent that ran roughshod over them.

Sharks have a Dell-emma after win
Netminder records back-to-back shutouts
by Mike Lee
The Sharks have a dilemma on their hands. Aaron Dell has created a problem for San Jose after recording his second straight shutout, stopping the Vancouver Canucks 4-0 at SAP Center as the Sharks wrapped up a 6-game home stand. Dell stopped 19 shots en route to his 3rd win of the season. Dell's numbers have been more effective than starter Martin Jones, and back-to-back shutouts shouldn't be ignored.

Sharks blow three leads and the game
Oilers take OT win after McLellan fired
by Mike Lee
When Todd McLellan woke up this morning, he was still the head coach of the Edmonton Oilers. By the start of the Oilers game with the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night, McLellan was out of a job. The Sharks don't need many excuses to play mediocre hockey, but the Oilers coaching change was enough to inspire Edmonton to a 4-3 overtime win at SAP Center. Leon Draisaitl booted a puck past Martin Jones with the only shot of the overtime to allow Ken Hitchcock to win his first game as bench boss for the Oilers.

No lead is safe
Sharks can't stay in the driver's seat
by Paul Krill
Saturday's delightful 4-0 win against the Saint Louis Blues was a bit uncharacteristic of this season:

* The Sharks captured the lead and held it.
* The Sharks had their first shutout of the year.

According to pre-game reporting on TV, the Sharks have had a lead in seven of the 10 games they've lost this season. And that doesn't count a game like last Tuesday's, where they had to come from behind to win after blowing a 3-0 lead against a Nashville team that had played an overtime game the night before.

Dell exacts some revenge on Blues
Sharks payback St Louis with 4-0 win
by Mike Lee
Eight days ago, the St Louis Blues ran roughshod over a fatigued San Jose Sharks hockey team. San Jose was playing on back to back nights, and the fatigue reared its ugly head in the second half of that game when the Sharks fell 4-0 at the Enterprise Center. The Sharks got a little revenge on Saturday night, as it was their turn to rest and wait for the Blues who beat the Vegas Golden Knights in Sin City on Friday night. The Sharks took advantage of the road weary Blues by reciprocating with their own 4-0 victory at SAP Center.

Jumbo to the rescue
Thornton's 400th career goal is game winner
by Mike Lee
Joe Thornton had a quiet Tuesday night. Then the Sharks had another chance to upend the best team in the NHL, and the Sharks senior statesman worked his magic. Not known for his shooting prowess, the old man snapped a shot with 6:42 left in regulation that sailed past Nashville Predators goaltender Juuse Saros to give the Sharks a 5-4 lead. It capped another come-from-behind victory over the Predators this season.

Jones shines in win over Flames
Sharks kickoff 6-game homestand with 3-1 win
by Mike Lee
The Sharks goaltending has not been a strength for the Sharks early this season. That wasn't the case on Sunday night as the sharks returned home to kickoff a 6-game home stand. Martin Jones turned in what might have been his best game of the season to propel the Sharks to a 3-1 win over the Calgary Flames. Jones made 29 saves to earn his 8th win of the season.

Sharks checkout early to Blues
St Louis shuts out Sharks 4-0
by Mike Lee
The Sharks got an early jump on their weekend by checking out of the office early on Friday. San Jose wrapped up their quick 2-game road trip with an absentee performance at the Enterprise Center in St Louis, dropping a pitiful 4-0 decision to the Blues. San Jose was outplayed in all three periods, exuding no fight or energy in one of their poorest performances of the season.

Thornton rains on Thornton's parade
Sharks drop 4-3 decision to Stars
by Mike Lee
Joe Thornton played in his 1500th NHL game on Thursday night as the Sharks kicked off a quick 2-game road trip with a stop in Dallas. Thornton had a chance to be a hero late in the game with the Sharks trailing the Stars by a single goal. The Sharks centerman found himself with the puck and open ice between him and the Stars goal with a minute to play. Never a goal scoring threat, Thornton lived up to that reputation by putting a shot on net that never really challenged goaltender Anton Khudobin. Thornton's moment to shine ended with a thud, as did the Sharks who lost 4-3.

Goodrow's goal salvages win over Wild
Sharks blow 2-goal 3rd period lead
by Mike Lee
The Sharks had a tall task in hosting the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night. The Wild boast one of the best records in the NHL, and like San Jose, rolls four lines that are capable of beating any team on any given night. The Sharks put their heads down and built a lead that they would squander in the 3rd period, but a Barclay Goodrow goal would propel the Sharks to a second consecutive win and a stake in the Pacific Division lead.

Meier's overtime winner sweeps Philly
SJ overcome's 3rd period deficit to win at home
by Mike Lee
The Sharks have struggled on home ice since returning on October 30th. After dropping their first two games back on home ice, San Jose had to battle back from a 3rd period deficit to take a 4-3 overtime decision of the Philadelphia Flyers at SAP Center on Saturday night. Joe Thornton scored the tying goal with 4:57 to play in regulation, then Timo Meier scored the game winner 13 seconds into the overtime period to help propel the Sharks.

Sharks blow late heroics in return home
Tomas Hertl's last second goal squandered in shootout loss
by Mike Lee
San Jose returned home from an arduous three game road trip on Tuesday night, and played a flat game until the waning minutes of their rematch with the New York Rangers. The Sharks lost to New York in overtime back on October 11th, and were looking to exact a little revenge. Only problem is, they played an uninspiring game on home ice, only to lose 4-3 in the shootout. Tomas Hertl played hero by scoring a game-tying goal with 1.3 seconds left in regulation, but that was the last puck that would get by Henrik Lundqvist.

Meier bails out Sharks in Anaheim
SJ wins in overtime after dominating game
by Mike Lee
San Jose wrapped up their 3-game road trip with a frustrating overtime win in Anaheim against their division rivals on Sunday night. Outplaying the Ducks for a majority of the game, the Sharks allowed Anaheim to stick around all night and eventually force overtime by surrendering the lead in the 3rd period. Timo Meier was the Sharks savior, scoring the game winner in overtime. The Sharks forward finished the game with a pair of goals, an assist and a +4 night.

Hangover ends with shootout loss
Hurricanes take it to San Jose in Raleigh
by Mike Lee
Carolina has traditionally been a place where the Sharks recharge their batteries as they tour the east coast. Historically a doormat for San Jose, this year's Hurricanes may have a little more bite. They certainly earned the Shark respect after erasing a 2-goal deficit with a three goal outburst in the 2nd period, then controlling play for 35 minutes before eventually taking a 4-3 decision in the shootout.

Sharks stun Predators with late comeback
SJ scores three 3rd period goals to take 5-4 win
by Mike Lee
We're only 9 games into the season, but the Sharks have had their share of ups and downs. Kicking off a 3-game road trip with a trip to Tennessee to face the Predators, San Jose played down in the first 40 minutes, then rebounded with their best 3rd period of the season to stun Nashville with 3 goals in the frame to wipe out a 4-2 deficit and win 5-4. Brent Burns scored a power play goal late to help San Jose extend their win streak to three games.

Sharks get toothy on Los Tiburones Night
San Jose avenges shutout loss to Islanders
by Mike Lee
San Jose capped off their short 2-game home stand by exacting some revenge on the New York Islanders 4-1 at SAP Center on Saturday. The Islanders beat San Jose 4-0 in Brooklyn on the Sharks recent 5-game road trip. The Sharks were a different team this time around, beating the Islanders on the scoreboard as well as with their fists in a spirited affair.

Special teams corrected for a game
San Jose unloads on Sabres in 5-1 drubbing
by Mike Lee
Special teams play has been the Sharks Achilles heal so far this season. Ranked in the bottom third on both the power play and penalty kill, San Jose used special teams on both sides of the puck as a point of emphasis on Thursday night as they returned home for the first time since opening night on 15 days ago. Logan Couture led the charge, as San Jose scored three power play goals en route to a 5-1 drubbing of the visiting Buffalo Sabres.

Sharks blow yet another 3rd period lead
Road trip performance is simply average
by Mike Lee
Mediocre teams find a way to be mediocre. The Sharks are a mediocre team at best right now. As has become a troubling trend, the Sharks failed to put a team away in the 3rd period in the last leg of their 5-game road trip and end up losing 3-2 to the New Jersey Devils on Sunday afternoon. San Jose coughed up a 3rd period lead by allowing a pair of goals in the final frame, losing for the third time in five tries on the trip.

Sharks give away game to Rangers
New York ties it late, then wins in OT
by Mike Lee
Playing the fourth game of their five game road trip and third time in four nights, the Sharks squandered a chance to grab two points from the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden on Thursday night. San Jose held a 2-1 lead for the majority of the game before allowing the Rangers to tie it with 2:39 left in regulation, then losing the game 37 seconds into overtime.

Offense explodes in Philly
SJ unloads on the Flyers with 8 goals in win
by Mike Lee
If the Sharks loss in Brooklyn on Monday afternoon was a case of missed opportunities, then they figured out how to capitalize on them in short order. Playing a day after their ugly 4-0 loss to the Islanders, the Sharks pummeled the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night 8-1 at the Wells Fargo Center. Evander Kane had a pair of goals, and Kevin Labanc added 4 assists on the night to propel the Sharks, who draw to an even 2-2-0 record.

Sharks take Columbus Day off
Islanders welcome newcomers with spanking
by Mike Lee
The Sharks hit the eastern seaboard with a stop in Brooklyn to take on the New York Islanders at Barclays Center in a matinee match-up on Columbus Day. The 1pm faceoff was essentially a morning start for the Sharks who hit the snooze on the alarm, dropping an awful 4-0 decision to the host Islanders. San Jose went toe-to-toe with the Islanders for 20 minutes, then decided to go back to bed, with another disastrous 3rd period.

Labanc spoils Kings home opener
Sharks win first of the season in OT
by Mike Lee
The Sharks kicked off a 5-game road trip with quick stop in Southern California on Friday night, welcoming the Los Angeles Kings to the new season with a 3-2 overtime win. The Kings made their debut season debut at Staples Center, but a Kevin Labanc goal 2:54 into the extra period ruined the party for the Kings faithful.

Thud
Sharks goaltending takes opening night off
by Paul Krill
The table was set. The Sharks would open at home Wednesday night in front of an enthusiastic sellout crowd, with new star Erik Karlsson taking the ice and Joe Thornton returning to action after nine months off. They would be facing off against the Anaheim Ducks, the same team the Sharks swept in the playoffs last year, which would play without one of its stars, Corey Perry.

Opening night cobwebs costs Sharks
Ducks big 3rd period sinks San Jose
by Mike Lee
The Sharks kicked of their 2018-19 campaign with a home affair, pulling back the curtain on their shiny new defenseman in Erik Karlsson at SAP Center on Wednesday night. The Karlsson unveiling was the highlight of the night for the Sharks, who played 40 minutes of hockey before rolling over in the 3rd period. Beset with injuries, the visiting Anaheim Ducks scored four unanswered goals across the final 22 minutes of the game to spoil the party with a big 5-2 win.

WCSF Game 5: Sharks late to the party
Martin Jones leads Sharks to big 4-0 victory
by Mike Lee
Like death and taxes, the Sharks once again find themselves facing playoff elimination after the Vegas Golden Knights defeated them 5-3 at T-Mobile Arena on Friday night. The Sharks didn't show up until the second half of the 3rd period, but by then they trailed 4-0. that lead would prove insurmountable, even though they scored three goals in the final period. Vegas used their home-ice advantage and flat out beat the Sharks with quick and timely scoring.

WCSF Game 4: Sharks knot series with win
Martin Jones leads Sharks to big 4-0 victory
by Mike Lee
If the Sharks continue to play the way they did on Wednesday evening at SAP Center, then the Vegas Knights have a tall order to deal with. The Sharks morphed into a hard-hitting, quick skating, forecheck commanding brute in Game 4 of San Jose's Western Conference Semi Finals series with Vegas. San Jose kept a constant stream of pressure on a Knights team that looked vulnerable for the first time in the series. The Sharks rolled four lines that kept the Knights on their heels most of the game, and received goal scoring from four different skaters. Martin Jones made 34 saves for his second shutout of these playoffs.

Knights grab series lead with 4-3 overtime win

The Sharks grabbed the home ice advantage on Saturday when they beat the Vegas Golden Knights in Game 2 of their Western Conference Semi Final series. They promptly handed that advantage back to Vegas on Monday night, after losing 4-3 in overtime at SAP Center. The Sharks battled back from a 3-1 deficit by scoring a pair of goals in the 3rd period, but William Karlsson took advantage of a defensive miscue by the Sharks to score 8:17 into the extra period.

WCSF Game 1: Sharks embarrassed in opener
Vegas pounds SJ 7-0
by Mike Lee
The Conference Semi-Finals kicked off in Las Vegas on Thursday night, but somebody forgot to tell the Sharks. San Jose showed up for an ice cream social, but instead got punched in the mouth, kicked in the groin and spit on by the expansion Golden Knights at T-Mobile Arena in a lop-sided 7-0 loss. So much for sweeping the Anaheim Ducks. The Sharks quick disposal of Anaheim meant nothing to the Knights, who scored at will, and simply man-handled San Jose in a game that set an ominous tone.

This Should be Fun!!
Two paths to the next round
by Ryan Hall
Wednesday night, with a deft flick of his wrist, Tomas Hertl sent the puck into the net, and drove a dagger into the heart of the Anaheim Ducks. While it's easy to get caught up in the emotion of the event, what happened in San Jose was simply the latest counter-move in a season long contest between the Sharks and Las Vegas Golden Knights. Now, after 86 games, these two teams will have a chance to settle things definitively, with the Pacific Division crown on the line.

WCQF Game4: Sharks sweep Ducks out of the playoffs
Martin Jones and Tomas Hertl lead Sharks to series win
by Mike Lee
With a little more than five minutes remaining in regulation of Wednesday night's series deciding Game 4 of the Sharks Western Conference Quarter Finals series with Anaheim, Jakob Silfverberg was faced with the biggest paradox of his season. Silfverberg was mixing it up with Sharks defenseman Brent Burns as a whistle sounded stopping play. Burns stood there with his arms planted at his side, smirking like a school boy on the first day of summer vacation. Silfverberg wanted to put his stick through Burns' god awful beard, but he couldn't. The Ducks were slowly dying as time was slowly ticking away on their season and Silfverberg couldn't pull the trigger like all his Duckish instincts had taught him to do. He couldn't because his team was trailing by a goal. What a glorious moment for Burns.

WCQF Game 3: Duck mauling at the Tank

by Mike Lee
The Sharks Western Conference Quarter Finals series with the Anaheim Ducks shifted to San Jose on Monday night, and by the time the smoke cleared the Sharks are on the verge of ending the series within the next 48 hours. San Jose's offense responded to the Ducks low-brow approach to hockey by putting a bushel full of pucks into the Anaheim net in a an 8-1 win to grab a stranglehold on the series.

WCQF Game 1: Sharks take care of business
SJ opens the series with a 3-0 win in SoCal
by Mike Lee
Evander Kane played in 574 career regular season NHL games without having the opportunity to taste playoff hockey. He finally got his chance in Game 1 of the Sharks Western Conference Quarter Finals match up with the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday night, and he made the most of his chance by scoring a pair of goals in the Sharks 3-0 victory at the Honda Center in Southern California. Many of his Shark teammates played like it was their first chance at playoff redemption.
