Martin Jones' Troubling Start

Martin Jones' Troubling Start

November 13th, 2018 For the San Jose Sharks, one thing they count on is Martin Jones turning in a solid season. Jones has never been a serious candidate for the league’s top netminder, but he has yet to have a problematic season in his first three as a starter. Now in his fourth season manning the net for the...

In today's News & Notes, the San Jose Sharks received good news on Joe Thornton's knee injury, the NHL announced their three stars of the week and Brady Tkachuk made his NHL debut. Sharks Receive Good News on Thorton Injury Front The Sharks received some very good news Sunday night as the team found out that Thornton's knee injury didn't include structural damage. “Nothing structurally. It looks like an infection, put him on antibiotics,” head coach Pete DeBoer said Monday “He should be fine.” This is great news for the Sharks who are undoubtedly a better team with Thornton on the ice than they are without him. It's also good news considering Thornton's knee has been the subject of discussion recently with the veteran center missing half of the 2017-18 season due to a torn ACL and MCL - injuries he suffered the season prior and actually played through in the postseason. The Sharks still placed Thornton on the injured reserve and will be without the...

San Jose Sharks

Two games into the 2018-19 NHL season, the San Jose Sharks have a 1-1-0 record. A 5-2 loss in the season opener at the Shark Tank to the Anaheim Ducks was followed by a 3-2 overtime road win over the Los Angeles Kings. Sharks Dominant Skating In both games, the Sharks outskated their opponent. In the loss to Anaheim, the blame can be spread around, but few will argue goalie Martin Jones had a good game. Jones gave up a particularly soft goal which put the Sharks down 3-2. The power play looked awful and the penalty kill allowed two goals, though a short-handed score aided the Sharks. Against the Kings, all three aspects improved. Jones was better, especially after allowing a shaky goal in the opening moments of the second period. By game’s end, he was very good, including a terrific pad save on Austin Wagner, who got behind the Sharks defense. The save was clutch, with eight minutes left and the game tied. The power play didn’t deliver, but the revamped units weren’t...

San Jose Sharks

The San Jose Sharks open their season on Oct. 3, and today we finish our season preview. We've covered the team's pre-Erik Karlsson trade roster, our expectations for divisional opponents, the Sharks' greatest vulnerability and the team's X-factors. I've taken a look at important side effects of the Karlsson trade and my colleague, Mac Bass, offered his take on the deal as well. There are three articles on critical statistics. The first covered important goalie results and how they relate to Stanley Cup winners. The second focused on a plan for Joe Thornton, given his play and health. The third delved into the defensive group, especially the penalty kill. I’m tying these preview articles together, drawing heavily from the three statistics pieces, and presenting what I think is the optimal way for the Sharks to operate heading into this season.

Vegas Golden Knights

The hardest division to predict for the 2018-19 NHL season might be the Pacific Division. There's plenty of star power amongst the eight teams, but that being said, there's plenty of wildcards as well. Health is a crucial component for many teams in the Pacific, but the Vegas Golden Knights proved last year that even with injuries, sometimes all you need is a little magic and Lady Luck on your side. So in putting together this year's preview of the Pacific Division, we've looked at each team, their strengths, weaknesses, and biggest question mark heading into the season. So why is the Pacific Division proving to be so unpredictable? With an offensive stud in Clayton Keller and a goalie that stood on his head last year (Antti Raanta), the Arizona Coyotes are proving they might be able to give some teams a run for their money. The Anaheim Ducks were dealt a massive blow with some of their injuries, but with Rickard Rakell's emergence, a deep defense, and a world-class...
