Watch Martin Jones’ massive pad save on Jori Lehtera one timer in Game 6

Let’s be honest: we could rhyme off several Conn Smythe Trophy candidates from the San Jose Sharks before we get to goaltender Martin Jones. It’s nothing against Jones. It’s just that he hasn’t been too busy. Entering Game 6 of the Western Conference final against the St. Louis Blues, Jones had faced 26 or fewer shots in every game, though he was pulled in one of those. The...

The San Jose Sharks, This Team

About a year ago, I wrote an article where I discussed ‘this team’. In context, it was about the commitment Sharks management made to the 2014-15 version of the San Jose Sharks. It was not much of a commitment and the results were not pretty. For 2015-16, management made a different commitment, and the results have been different for this team. Brent Burns.

Sharks need 1 win vs. Blues to reach 1st Stanley Cup final

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) Patrick Marleau has played more than 1,500 games with the San Jose Sharks since joining the NHL as an 18-year-old draft pick but never one quite like the next one. All those past playoff disappointments that have seemed to define the career of players like Marleau and Joe Thornton could be put to the side temporarily with one more San Jose win. For the first...

You should be rooting for Joe Thornton

Looking at the TV ratings, it's highly unlikely that, unless you're a diehard fan of the San Jose Sharks or St. Louis Blues, that you've been paying much attention to those teams' NHL Western Conference Final series. But while you might not be watching the games, you should be rooting for Sharks center Joe Thornton. Already one of the greatest players of the last two decades, Thornton...

Ken Hitchcock on Tarasenko: 'He’s learning hard lessons'

Ken Hitchcock will not stop speaking. The St. Louis Blues coach has been more than open to the media during the NHL playoffs. He’s been public about his relationship with Vladimir Tarasenko, who clearly hasn’t been enthralled with his coach’s deployment. Hitchcock said he loves the beef, but in reality, it’s not the healthiest thing to have your best player actively be...

Stay Out Of San Jose

Throughout this year's NHL playoffs, there has been a lot of focus on top teams such as the Washington Capitals, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Dallas Stars. These three teams ended the season as the best teams in the league, so it's no surprise as to why they receive more attention.

WATCH: Ryan Ellis slams Tomas Hertl’s head into the glass

The best way to appreciate the speed and intensity of the NHL is to watch it live from the first couple rows.
