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.

Cam Gore: Sharks review

The Sharks play tight in Motown, pick up some muscle in Mike Brown, and I will tell you why there won’t be a repeat from last year’s 7 up 7 down start.

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.

Sharks-Canadiens Preview

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...

Bruins-Sharks Live: B’s Return Home, Finish Back-to-Back by Hosting Sharks at TD Garden
