Alex Stalock stopped 25-of-27 shots to help backstop San Jose to a 5-2 win over Edmonton on Tuesday.

Stalock got a second straight start for the Sharks in a bit of a surprise move as Antti Niemi was the first goalie off the ice in the morning skate. The Sharks back-up goalie made the most of it though as he was named the first star of the game and earned his third win of the season. Barring injury to Niemi though at this point, he is unlikely to get the full run of starts as it stands now.

Alex Stalock gets the start, not Antti Niemi as the Sharks host the Oilers on Tuesday night.

It was first reported that Niemi would make the start in this-home-and-home set with the Oilers but Stalock does get the start. It will be Stalock's second straight start and no doubt raises a few eyebrows for Niemi owners.

Alex Stalock made 22 saves on 24 shots in Sunday's 2-1 loss to Edmonton.

This was Stalock's first start since November 8th. The 27-year-old made a few nice saves to keep this game close. Stalock's record falls to 2-3-1 with a 2.32 goals-against-average and a .923 save percentage. If he keeps playing well, he could steal a few starts away from Antti Niemi. The Sharks get another crack at the Oilers on Tuesday night.

The netminder was the backup to Antti Niemi in the 6-4 win over Anaheim. Stalock underwent minor knee surgery on November 13. He is 2-2-1 this season with a 2.38 GAA and a .925 save percentage. He should get a start this week as the Sharks play four times.

Alex Stalock (knee) is on the ice with his teammates for practice on Wednesday.

Troy Grosenick, who was called up during Stalock's absence, wasn't present so he may have been sent back to the minors. If that's the case then Stalock may be back in the lineup for Wednesday's game versus Calgary. Stay tuned.

Alex Stalock (minor knee surgery) is skating on his own.

Stalock had the surgery on November 13 and while there is still no timetable for his return, it's a good sign that he is skating. The heir apparent in San Jose has a 2-2-1 record with a 2.38 GAA and a .925 save percentage.

Alex Stalock underwent minor knee surgery on Thursday.

He was placed on injured reserve on Wednesday. Coach Todd McLellan said Stalock's injury wasn't the direct result of Dallas forward Antoine Roussel running him over last Saturday. "Everybody plays with bumps and bruises and he aggravated an injury and it got to the point where he couldn't go, and needed to have some work done. So that's occurred, that's happened," McLellan explained. There's no timetable in place for his return yet.

Alex Stalock blocked 37 of 40 shots in the Sharks’ 5-3 win over the Stars on Saturday night.

Stalock gave up all three goals to Tyler Seguin, twice in the first and once in the second period. Antti Niemi has been decent this year, but Stalock is a solid option should he struggle or get injured. Stalock has a 2.38 goals-against average and .925 save percentage this season. Expect Niemi to be back in net Sunday at the Blackhawks.
Nov 9 - 12:21 AM

With the San Jose Sharks beginning a back-to-back set, Alex Stalock gets a start against the Dallas Stars.

The Sharks turn around and play the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday, so odds are high that Antti Niemi gets that start. Stalock has lost three games in a row after starting the season with a shutout. This is his first oppotunity since losing to Buffalo on Oct. 25.
