Gameday Blog: Sharks at Flames 12/14

by Ann Frazier & Casey Krygier / sjsharks.com

Welcome to the Gameday Blog, the one-stop shop for San Jose Sharks fans on every gameday. This blog will be updated throughout the day with news, lineup information, videos, and tweets, so be sure to check back as the day goes on.

The Sharks are coming off a three day break after wrapping up a three game homestead that saw the team in teal earn 5 out of a possible 6 points. Besides a dominating 5-0 win over the Ottawa Senators, the Sharks also had a pair of 3-0 comebacks that saw both games go to overtime. While the Sharks won the game against the Hurricanes, they did fall to the Minnesota Wild, the lone blemish on the homestand.

Tonight's opponent - the Calgary Flames - are also coming off a non-regulation loss to the Minnesota Wild, a 2-1 shootout loss. The Flames are currently tied with the Sharks in terms of standings points, but have two more losses.

Something encouraging with the Sharks recently is the team's improved play on special teams. Their penalty kill has been one of their strengths all season - it ranks second in the NHL in effectiveness and has scored the most shorthanded goals - but the power play has also been better. The team has scored two power play goals in each of the past three games, which has improved the power play to 19.6% - good for 13th in the NHL.

Sharks Recall Danny O'Regan From San Jose Barracuda

by San Jose Sharks @SanJoseSharks / sjsharks.com

SAN JOSE - San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has recalled Forward Danny O'Regan (@DannyORegan15) from the San Jose Barracuda (@sjbarracuda), the team's top development affiliate in the American Hockey League.

In eight games with the Sharks, O'Regan posted four assists and five shots on goal. His most recent stint with the Sharks was highlighted by a two assist night against Tampa Bay on December 2.

O'Regan leads all Barracuda skaters in goals (6), ranks fifth in assists (6) and third in points (12) in 13 games played.

He was named the 2017 Dudley "Red" Garrett Memorial Award winner as the AHL's Rookie of the Year last season after pacing all AHL rookies in points (58 in 63 GP).

The five-foot-ten, 180-pound native of Berlin, Germany, was originally selected by San Jose in the fifth round (138th overall) of the 2012 NHL Draft.  

In addition, Forward Barclay Goodrow has been placed on Injured Reserve.

Inside the Cage: The Comeback Kids

by Ross McKeon @rossmckeon / sjsharks.com

And on the 11th day, the Sharks took a deep breath and a long rest.

Much deserved.

As the ice chips settled following a stretch of six games in 10 nights - along with East Coast travel thrown in if the schedule wasn't challenging enough - the Sharks came out of it in pretty good shape.

Going 6-5 during its 11 games in October, San Jose since has battled injury, a goal drought, and experienced power outages on the power play while just starting to get into the guts of its winter travel schedule. With all of those obstacles that could derail a less experienced team, the Sharks have earned points in 13 of 18 games going 10-5-3.

That stretch translates into a 105-point season pace. And added to their first month, the Sharks are safely above the postseason cutoff line with a projected 99 points.

Shark Life: Spreading Smiles

Tomas Hertl makes a young fan's day after Saturday's game

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

Over the weekend, Sharks fans enjoyed a dominant 5-0 home win over the Ottawa Senators as five different Sharks scored and Aaron Dell earned his third career shutout. But one Sharks fan likely enjoyed the game more than most. 

Tomas Hertl - known for his perpetual smile and "fun must be always" attitude - spread smiles around on Saturday, and not just because he scored a goal in the game.

As the Sharks were coming off the ice after celebrating the dominating 5-0 win, fans crowded around the tunnel in hopes of getting a fist bump from some of their favorite players. The players delivered on that, but Hertl went one step further and gave his stick to a young fan.

Gameday Blog: Sharks vs. Wild 12/10

Welcome to the Gameday Blog, the one-stop shop for San Jose Sharks fans on every gameday. This blog will be updated throughout the day with news, lineup information, videos, and tweets, so be sure to check back as the day goes on.

Read the latest on the San Jose Sharks from the Mercury News.

After a dominating 5-0 win over the Ottawa Senators last night, including putting 50 shots on goal, the Sharks are back in action tonight at the Tank to take on the Minnesota Wild for the first time this season.

While the Sharks have recently been criticized by some for not scoring a lot of goals, that reputation has been turned on its head the past two games. The Sharks have scored 5 goals in each of their past two contests, including 9 straight. On Thursday the goals came all through special teams play (or 3-on-3 overtime), while last night's game saw the team score three 5-on-5 goals and two power play goals.

There is some concern after Dylan DeMelo left last night's game after getting butt-ended in the face by Alex Burrows. There was no update on his status after the game, so it could be a sign that Joakim Ryan comes back into the lineup.

Gameday Blog: Sharks vs. Senators 12/9

Your source for news for San Jose Sharks gameday

by Ann Frazier & Casey Krygier / sjsharks.com

Welcome to the Gameday Blog, the one-stop shop for San Jose Sharks fans on every gameday. This blog will be updated throughout the day with news, lineup information, videos, and tweets, so be sure to check back as the day goes on.

After completing an epic comeback for arguably the biggest win of the season, the Sharks now host the Ottawa Senators for the second game of their three game homestand. This is also the sixth game in a row the Sharks face an opponent from the Eastern Conference, a streak that will be broken tomorrow night against the Wild.

While the Sharks are coming off a dramatic overtime win, the Senators are coming off of a dramatic overtime loss to the Los Angeles Kings. Down 3-2 in the third, the Senators managed to tie the game with 10 seconds left to send it to overtime, only to fall in the extra frame. 

Tonight the Sharks get Brenden Dillon back from his one game suspension, meaning that one defenseman (or - less likely - a forward) will be scratched tonight. The final decision will likely be announced at morning skate, so be sure to check back in for more news later in the day.

Power Rankings: Comeback Celebrations

Ranking the celebrations from last night's overtime win

by Casey Krygier / sjsharks.com

Last night's win over the Carolina Hurricanes wasn't written on the wall from the start. After the Sharks went down 3-0 in the first period, it was hard to imagine a quick bounce back. The beauty of the early deficit though, was that the Sharks set the stage for an epic comeback, and that's exactly what they did, celebrations included. 

So of course, we decided to rank them.

On the board!

The first Sharks goal last night came from what was probably one fo the best plays- on a short-handed breakaway. With such a beauty of a pass and perfect execution you would expect a bigger celebration. A very introverted celly- but relative to the game's current situation.
