Martin Jones will be expected to establish himself as a stud number one goalie this season.
He performed very well during his first season with the Sharks, but still has to prove that he can do it on a consistent basis. Jones will probably look to improve on his .909 save percentage on home ice from last year. He was much better on the road with a .925 save percentage. Sep 7 - 7:23 PM

Martin Jones was excellent in the Stanley Cup Final despite losing in six games to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

He posted a .931 save percentage and a 2.28 goals-against average in the series. "What do you say about him? One of the all-time best goaltending performances in a Final probably ever, or right up there, anyway," coach Pete DeBoer said. "I thought he was sensational every game we played. Gave us a chance to compete and get it to six games." The Sharks were outplayed throughout the Stanley Cup Final, but Jones kept the games close and he stole a couple of victories as well.
Jun 13 - 6:02 PM

Martin Jones stopped 24 of 26 shots in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final.

The loss means that the Sharks' playoff run is over. Despite coming out on the losing end, Jones had a very good game and series. The 26-year-old finished the postseason with a 14-10 record, a 2.16 goals-against-average and a .923 save percentage.

The San Jose Sharks want to do a better job of protecting Martin Jones in Game 6.

"I think being at home helped part of it," coach Peter DeBoer said. "But I think it was more our mindset. We got away from it last game. We allowed them to funnel pucks to the net. That's what they do. I thought we did a great job [in Game 4], probably the best game of the series where we've done a good job of denying them funneling those pucks to the net. We've got to get back to that. We have to help Jones out. Even if those aren't quality shots, it creates action in our net, it creates chaos. That's what they're looking to do. We've got to put a stop to that." The Sharks will look to force Game 7 on Wednesday night.

Martin Jones will be between the pipes for San Jose Sunday in Game 6.

Well, barring an injury, this is a no-brainer as Jones has been terrific in goal for the Sharks. Jones has faced 160 shots in the five games thus far while his counterpart Matt Murray was seen only 99 shots come his way. The Penguins have been impressed with Jones' game. "He's a good positional goalie," Chris Kunitz said. "He takes advantage when guys put their heads down and shoot. You have to either put pucks in front of him, [or] put pucks beside him so he can't play those rebounds. Getting guys in front of him is obviously something every goalie struggles with, so it's those things we've got to focus on."

Martin Jones has 40- and 44-save victories in the Stanley Cup Final.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Jones is the first goaltender in the NHL's expansion era (since 1967-68) with multiple 40-save wins in the Cup Final. He was excellent in Game 5 on Thursday to help the Sharks extend their series against Pittsburgh. San Jose will need him to be outstanding again on Sunday to force a Game 7.
Jun 10 - 5:02 PM

Martin Jones came through with a spectacular performance in Game 5 on Thursday night, turning away 44 Penguins shots and Pittsburgh's chance at winning the Cup on home ice.

The NHL's 30th highest paid goaltender started off shaky, allowing the Penguins to erase a 2-0 deficit in just 22 seconds early in the game. From that point forward, Jones wouldn't give the high-powered Penguins' offense an inch as the Sharks snagged a 4-2 victory. The 26-year-old's 14th win of the playoffs extends the NHL post-season at least three more days until Game 6 at the Shark Tank on Sunday night.
Jun 9 - 11:19 PM

The Sharks will stick with starter Martin Jones in their attempt to push their way back into the Stanley Cup Finals in Game 5 on Thursday night.

The 26-year-old has 13 wins in 22 playoff starts this spring, but is 1-3 against Pittsburgh this series allowing an average of 2.5 goals per game. If the Sharks have any hope, Jones will have to find another gear for the next three games.
Jun 9 - 7:51 PM

Sharks goalie Martin Jones made only 17 saves during the Pittsburgh Penguins' 3-1 victory in Stanley Cup action in San Jose Monday night.

The Sharks now trail the best-of-seven championship series 3-1, with Game 5 going in Pittsburgh Thursday night. Jones didn't do much to distinguish himself Monday. After kicking out 40 of 42 shots in a 3-2 overtime victory over the Pens in San Jose Saturday night, Jones was mostly idle Monday and allowed goals to the Pens in all three periods. The Sharks' offence, meanwhile, sputtered yet again, and the bottom line is that the Sharks face elimination in the series' next game. Jones' record in the postseason is 13-9. His goals-against average is 2.17 and he is sporting a .920 save percentage.
Jun 6 - 11:46 PM

Sharks goalie Martin Jones will return to the San Jose net for Game 4 of the Stanley Cup final Monday night.

The Sharks will make no changes to their lineup, which defeated the Penguins 3-2 in overtime Saturday night. Jones stopped 40 of 42 shots in the game. The Sharks trail the best-of-seven series 2-1.
Jun 6 - 7:45 PM

Martin Jones kicked out 40 of 42 shots in a 3-2 overtime victory over Pittsburgh Saturday night.

This is the second time in three Stanley Cup Final games that the Penguins have fired at least 40 shots at Jones. Although this time around they had another 12:16 minutes of extra time to aide in that feat. For the most part, Jones has held his own in this series, keeping the Sharks in games despite the Penguins outshooting them.
Jun 4 - 11:52 PM

Martin Jones is playing between the pipes in Game 3 Saturday night.

Not that there was ever any doubt. The Sharks have dropped the first two games of the series, but Jones has been solid thus far. He has a 2.16 GAA and .920 save percentage in 20 starts in the 2016 playoffs.
Jun 4 - 8:13 PM

Sharks goalie Martin Jones turned in another strong game in the Stanley Cup Final Wednesday night but wound up with another loss.

Jones made 28 saves during San Jose's 2-1 overtime loss to the Penguins in Pittsburgh. On Monday night, in Game 1, he made 38 saves in a 3-2 loss. The Pens are up 2-0, with the series heading west to San Jose for Game 3 Saturday night. Jones undoubtedly will start that game, as well, since he is not the reason the Sharks are down. In fact, he's the reason the Sharks kept close to the Penguins in both games. The San Jose forwards, usually high scorers, have not enjoyed much success finding the net against Pittsburgh's goalie, rookie Matt Murray. Jones' postseason record is now 12-8. His goals-against average is 2.16. His save percentage, .920.
Jun 1 - 11:59 PM

Just to confirm, Martin Jones is expected to start in Game 2 on Wednesday.

It would be very surprising if that wasn't the case. The Penguins managed to take Game 1, but Jones made 38 saves in the 3-2 loss, so the brunt of the blame shouldn't be assigned to him.
Jun 1 - 7:46 PM

Martin Jones stopped 38 of 41 shots in a 3-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 1.

Jones faced 15 shots in the opening frame and a staggering 18 in the third period. As you might expect, those are the two periods where Pittsburgh generated all of its offense. St. Louis had considerably more difficulty getting shots on goal in the Western Conference Final. In fact, the last time Jones faced at least 40 shots in a single game was on May 5 against the Nashville Predators in the second round.
