On the Duck Pond:
San Jose Sharks
The Ducks wanted nothing more than to spoil San Jose's perfect record. No sense letting their Pacific Division rival keep rolling along to start their season. Anaheim came close, but in the end, the Sharks came back and got the 3-2 win in a shootout and the Ducks merely got a point for their efforts.
Going into the game, the Ducks knew they would have to be at their best and be disciplined, and they certainly gave it their all.
Anaheim dominated the first period, outshooting the Sharks 13-4. Despite those numbers, the one that counted was the score - 1-0 San Jose. Joe Pavelski got the puck behind Jonas Hiller at 9:46, keeping San Jose's top line hot.
In the middle period, San Jose took a couple of penalties, including too many men on the ice, and the Ducks took some momentum to even up the game. Francois Beauchemin got his first of the year at 8:40 to tie up the game. It was just after one of the penalties had expired. Matt Beleskey followed it up less t...

Tweet Eight days after 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick trademarked his “Kaepernicking” celebration, he’s already being mimicked in the sports world. On Thursday in the San Jose Sharks’ game against the Edmonton Oilers, Logan Couture scored a goal in the middle of the second period. To celebrate, he decided to borrow from the man taking snaps [...]
My love for '10-'11 Panini Dominion is no secret as I pump out post after post featuring my all-time favorite hockey product. While no hockey release will ever overtake it in my mind, there are others I enjoy, including '11-'12 Dominion. It helps that Ryan Getzlaf has cards in that product.My first posted addition from the second year of Dominion is this sweeeeet...
The reports about Jason Demers and Brent Burns should be considered positive developments. The reports I mean are things like:
Jason Demers practiced with the team and took line rushes with Matt Irwin this morning while Nick Petrecki and Brent Burns skated together. Still, McLellan stopped short of declaring Demers good-to-go. -Working the Corners
Even if Demers isn't expected...
SAN JOSE -- Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau called it the best game of the season for his Ducks, yet it still wasn't enough to beat the red-hot San Jose Sharks. The 6-0 hosts scored late in regulation and converted the only goal of a shootout to post a comeback 3-2 win over their Pacific Division rivals on Tuesday night. "It was our best game of the season without a doubt...
The Sharks blue line is getting a boost Thursday vs. the Oilers, but it won’t be the double boost they had hoped for.
Dan Boyle will return to the team’s defensive lineup, but Jason Demers will still be held out after returning to the team’s active roster on Wednesday.
Boyle missed Tuesday’s shootout win over the Ducks with some type of undetermined illness. From David Pollak...
Ryan Leong filling in for Cam who is on assignment.
The Sharks continue to find ways to win and remain perfect on the season at 6-0-0.
It was another milestone night for team teal as Justin Braun played in his 100th career NHL game. For once, Patrick Marleau did not score a goal but his teammates picked him up and the Sharks beat the Ducks 3-2 in a shootout.
Michal Handzus scored the lone goal in a shootout on the first attempt to give the unbeaten San Jose Sharks a 3-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday night.
Logan Couture scored for San Jose with less than 3 minutes left in the third period to tie the game at 2. He ripped a shot that appeared to deflect off the skates of Bryan Allen and trickled past Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller...
The Sharks put their undefeated 6-0 record up against the young but promising Oilers from Edmonton. People around the league are waiting for the Sharks to falter however they have been winning with experience from the veterans, solid and sound goaltending, and contributions from everyone.
San Jose schooled the Oilers 6-3 on the road in game two of the season. They led 6-1 after...
The Anaheim Ducks were a little over three minutes away from sending Scott Gomez's new team to their first loss of the young season; that is until a routine shot off the stick of Logan Couture found its way through goalie Jonas Hiller.
The "seeing eye" shot tied the game at two goals apiece and was the catalyst of San Jose's 3-2 shootout win; keeping them perfect...
Jason Demers is ready to play. He took slapshots Tuesday and Wednesday, and spent some extra time working with both Larry Robinson and Jim Johnson after Tuesday's practice. Wednesday, he was practicing with a power play unit. That would argue for Demers being in sooner than later. My guess is that sooner would be even sooner if Boyle is still out Thursday. Today, Frazer...
SAN JOSE -- Edmonton's Devan Dubnyk became the first goalie to stop Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau, but his Oilers teammates couldn't end the Sharks' other streak. San Jose improved to a perfect 7-0 as Michal Handzus and Dan Boyle scored in the shootout for a 3-2 win over the young Oilers on Thursday night. "It was a pretty good road game," Dubnyk said...
While the San Jose Sharks are enjoying their best start in franchise history, coach Todd McLellan feels they still need to tighten some things up.
The Edmonton Oilers can't be happy to hear that.
San Jose, the NHL's last remaining unbeaten, tries to pick up another two points and continue its recent dominance of the visiting Oilers as these clubs meet for the second time...
