San Jose Sharks: Puck luck plays factor in loss

The Pittsburgh Penguins went in to San Jose and got their first win in Northern California since October, 1997. The SAP Center has always been known as a place that is difficult for road teams, but as of late, that has not been the case. The San Jose Sharks now have a 4-7 home record for the season. Phil Kessel and Evgeni Malkin led the way en route to a 5-1 Penguin victory. Malkin...

San Jose Sharks make history

Going into their six game road trip with a record of 7-8, the San Jose Sharks needed some sort of streak in order to get themselves out of the .500 bubble. Nobody could have predicted they would be the sixth team in NHL history to go perfect on a road trip of six or more games. The first game of the road trip was in Detroit. The Sharks won 3-2 despite being out-shot 28-14. At Buffalo...

Breakdown: Game 20 – Penguins 1, Sharks 3

By: @chetstead The Penguins experienced a bit of a letdown after two encouraging games. The visiting Sharks held the Penguins to a single goal despite the fact that Pittsburgh took close to 40 shots in the game. A couple unfortunate bounces gave the Sharks the lead and the Pens simply couldn’t beat Martin Jones to get back in the game. It was Paul Martin’s first game back in...

San Jose Sharks: New additions looking sharp

The San Jose Sharks have had a decent start to the 2014-2015 season. They are 5-3, and tied for second in the Pacific division behind the surprising Arizona Coyotes. The veteran core has not been the standout to this point, while it has been the newest players making the most significant contributions. Joe Pavelski and Joe Thornton have been solid to this point of the season, but...

San Jose Sharks season preview: Big changes could bring playoff payoff

Plus: The Sharks made major changes to their team following a rare playoff miss last season. They needed to improve on offense, and they did so when they acquired Joel Ward, a 19-goal scorer last year, via free agency this offseason. They also rid themselves of former coach Todd McLellan, who never seemed to be able to keep a peaceful locker room, in favor of new coach Peter DeBoer...

Sharks Acquire Goalie and Sign Defenseman Martin

The draft has now come and gone for the San Jose Sharks. Enter July 1. Up north it’s celebrated as a federal holiday, and known as Canada Day.

Sharks Sign Paul Martin To A Four-Year Deal

  View image | The San Jose Sharks have signed D Paul Martin to a four-year deal. Martin registered 17 assists in 2014-15 with Pittsburgh.
