Scott Gomez signed with the Sharks on Wednesday and had already been practicing with the team a handful of days before that. So, the newest Shark has had some time to get to know his new teammates. I’m sure a lot of it has to do with building chemistry on the ice, such as understanding the tendencies of Tommy Wingels and T.J. Galiardi, his potential mates on the third line. Or maybe Gomez is finally getting in a rhythm with the other guys on the second power play unit, which he is also expected to be part of. Actually, you know what, let’s just hear from Gomez himself on what he’s learning from this group of Sharks: “A couple guys use extra lite Ranch. One guy likes his steak really, really cooked. Little stuff like that you don’t expect.” So, the important stuff. In other Gomez news, it sounds as if he’ll be making his Sharks debut Saturday at home against the Avalanche. Here’s what Todd McClellan told CSN’s Kevin Kurz on Friday: “A very good chance we’ll see him tomorrow,” the head

Fantasy Hockey: Scott Gomez signs with San Jose Sharks

I honestly believe Scott Gomez will get his hockey career back on track with the move out West as the newest member of the San Jose Sharks. Fantasy hockey owners should play close attention to Scott Gomez over the next several weeks. If at any time Gomez looks as though he has any of the old skill from his New Jersey days I will be jumping all over him as a hockey pool pick.  What...

What’s got in to Patrick Marleau?

Brad Stuart predicted this. Yesterday, David Pollak published some quotes from Brad Stuart about his career and about the Sharks, what he saw while he was here the first time, and what he saw playing against San Jose later.  One of those answers might explain this mind-boggling start from Team Teal: Pollak: "...wasn’t last year a step backward?" Stuart: ...

Putting Patrick Marleau’s hot start in perspective

Nobody in the NHL is having a better start to the season than Patrick Marleau.  The Sharks have started the season 4-0, thanks in large part to Marleau’s torrid pace out of the gate. Marleau added two more goals in the Sharks 4-0 win over the Avs on Saturday to bring to his league-best tally to eight (Chicago’s Marian Hossa follows with five). He’s scored twice in each of...

Patrick Marleau and the Sharks are making things look easy

When making your MVP predictions for the 2013 NHL season, did you include Patrick Marleau on your list? You can be honest - I didn't either. Marleau, as well as the bulk of his San Jose teammates, carried rather small expectations into the year following the lockout. For the first time in a long time, seemingly no major outlet considered San Jose to be a true Stanley Cup contender...

Marleau scores twice, as usual, as Sharks rally past Coyotes

SAN JOSE -- Patrick Marleau is out to change his reputation as a notoriously slow starter during this lockout-shortened season. For the third consecutive game to start the season, Marleau scored two goals, the latest pair in dramatic fashion as the Sharks rallied from a 3-1 deficit in the final half of the third period for a 5-3 win over the Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday night. ...

Marleau's two power play goals lift Sharks to fourth straight win

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- One big check woke up the San Jose Sharks on Saturday. Defenseman Brad Stuart met Colorado's Gabriel Landeskog with a booming check in open ice, and his Sharks teammates took advantage of retaliation that resulted in power play time for San Jose. Patrick Marleau's two power play goals led the hosts to a 4-0 win over the Avalanche as San Jose won for...

Patrick Marleau: still smokin’

With tedious regularity, Patrick Marleau scores two goals. Of course it's not tedious at all, it's a beautiful thing. Someone should write a song about it. He scores two goals in Alberta, And two in the next game. He scores two goals before he scores two goals and then... Well, we're not to game five yet.  But he's already done something that hasn'...

Sharks 4, Avalanche 0

Patrick Marleau became the second player in NHL history to open a season with four straight multigoal games, striking twice on the power play in the first period in the San Jose Sharks' 4-0 victory against the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday.

Cam Gore: Sharks keep on rolling

The Sharks continue to dominate the 2013 season after blanking the Colorado Avalanche 4-0. San Jose’s Patrick Marleau continues on his 96 goal pace bagging another two in this afternoon’s battle. Thomas Greiss got the start for San Jose this afternoon and although he wasn’t tested a lot a shutout can never be undervalued especially when it is the first of his career...

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- Patrick Marleau scored the tiebreaking goal with 1:53 remaining for his third straight two-goal game, helping the San Jose Sharks rally from a two-goal deficit to beat the Phoenix Coyotes 5-3 in their home opener Thursday night. Logan Couture and Marty Havlat also scored and Joe Thornton had three assists and an empty-net goal for the Sharks, who have opened...

Canucks-Sharks Preview

Behind the scorching stick of Patrick Marleau, the San Jose Sharks are one win away from their best start in franchise history. Standing in the way are the Vancouver Canucks, a team they've had trouble with over the past two seasons.
