Martin Jones appreciation...week!
Owning a league-best 4-0-0 record with a 1.71 goals-against average, .942 save percentage, and one shutout, Martin Jones was named the NHL's Second Star for the week ending April 4.
In the first of four contests last week, Jones stood tall through 65 minutes and an eight-round shootout, as San Jose won the contest 4-3 over the Minnesota Wild on March 29.
Two days later, he stumped the Wild once again with a 4-2 win and a total of 48 saves over the pair of games.
It was no surprise that San Jose looked to Jones again for a two-game set in L.A. to conclude the week.
In the first of back-to-back efforts, the netminder earned his 25th career shutout and first of the 2021 season in a 3-0 win. He then backstopped the Sharks to a 3-2 victory with 35 saves the following night.
This season, the 31-year-old has saved 148 of 153 shots against his former team.
After collecting eight points in a perfect week, Jones and the Sharks find themselves just three points shy of the final playoff spot in the Honda NHL West Division.
