Stalock waits for his turn in net

Alex Stalock will start an NHL game in the very near future for the San Jose Sharks. Really, he will.

Sharks get first regulation loss after last-second goal (Video)

The Sharks’ first regulation loss of the season was a heartbreaker. The Sharks looked to be headed to overtime, and thus keeping their point streak alive to start the season, against the Bruins on Thursday. Then David Krejci had to go and be a hero: Ugh. With 0.8 seconds left in the game. Literally a last-second goal. The Sharks feverishly outshot the Bruins, 39-16, before Krejci...

Sharks Dan Boyle: Lapierre's hit showed lack of respect

Sharks defenseman Dan Boyle finally opened up Saturday about the hit from St. Louis Blues forward Maxim Lapierre that knocked him unconscious. "I don't think he thought he was going to put me in the hospital with the hit, so I agree with him that wasn't his intention," said Boyle, who had declined to talk about the play for two days. "At the same time, we...

Dan Boyle Skates, Talks After Practice Today

from Kevin Kurz of CSNBayArea, What he doesn’t remember is getting knocked out on a hit from behind by the Blues’ Maxim Lapierre, or getting stretchered off of the ice minutes later.

Berkshire Bank Rewind: Sharks’ Offensive Zone Pressure Creates Quality Scoring Chances vs. Bruins (Video)

The San Jose Sharks entered Thursday night’s game against the Boston Bruins with the highest-scoring offense in the NHL, and they had a dominant first period in which they out-shot the B’s 16-3. The key for the Sharks was sustaining offensive zone pressure and winning puck battles along the boards. Quick, accurate puck movement also opened up shooting lanes for San Jose forwards...

Sharks-Canadiens Preview

The San Jose Sharks got off to the NHL's best start behind a high-powered offense, but goals have been hard to come by on the first two stops of a long trip. They'll try to re-ignite their scoring Saturday night against the Montreal Canadiens, who are 10-2-0 with two ties in the all-time series at home while limiting the Sharks to 1.8 goals per game. San Jose (8-1-1) was...

HockeyBuzz Hotstove: Hotstove: Let's Talk Disappointments

Welcome to the Hotstove! As always, I'm your host, Travis Yost. A couple of weeks ago, we touched on a few individuals and teams that were really impressing out of the gate.

9. San Jose Sharks at Boston Bruins. WHO CARES, KILL JOHN SCOTT!

Oh man. The rage I feel this morning after last night's game as I write this is unfathomable. If for some reason you have no idea what happened last night, here's a quick summation. Yup, a disgustingly dirty hit that is reminiscant of the Matt Cooke/Marc Savard hit. What's worse is that Loui Eriksson stayed in Buffalo overnight to get looked at as the Bruins traveled...

Sharks-Senators Preview

While trying to get the NHL's most potent offense back on track, the San Jose Sharks found a way to pull out another close victory on their lengthy road trip.

Although they lead the league with 3.8 goals...
