Patrick Marleau is probable to stay on the second line for Tuesday's contest.

That would keep on the wing alongside Logan Couture and Joonas Donskoi. There was some speculation that Marleau could end up centering the third line to give the Sharks some more depth, but coach Peter DeBoer has been happy with Marleau's game on the wing. That doesn't mean that changes aren't possible during the game, though.

Patrick Marleau may center the third line in Game 2 against St. Louis.

"It's game to game," coach Peter DeBoer said. "Two Patrick Marleaus, one plays center, one on the third line ... I think we've been effective with three centers down the middle, [Logan] Couture, Marleau and [Joe] Thornton. We've also been very effective with him on the wing." The Sharks bench boss doesn't want to overact to losing a close Game 1 to the Blues, but it could be an option. St. Louis has plenty of depth and that may help the Sharks counter it.

Patrick Marleau had a goal and an assist in Thursday night's Game 7 victory for the Sharks.

San Jose obliterated the Predators 5-0 to advance to the third round of the playoffs. Marleau now has nine points in 12 playoff games this season, a nice total considering he had 48 points in 82 games during the regular season.

He has seven points in 10 games. Logan Couture and Melker Karlsson picked up the other goals. San Jose leads the series 3-2.

Patrick Marleau scored the Sharks' lone goal in a 4-1 Game 3 loss to Nashville on Tuesday.

Patrick Marleau gave San Jose a 1-0 lead at 13:13 of the first period on a breakaway. Marleau split the Predators defense and beat goaltender Pekka Rinne to the loose puck. Marleau was able to skate around Rinne and shoot the puck into an empty net. Unfortunately for the Sharks, that was all they could muster against the Preds goalie on this night. It was the first loss for the Sharks on the road this postseason.
May 4 - 1:30 AM

Patrick Marleau logged just 12:18 of ice time in Game 2 against Nashville.

It was his lowest total of the season and his lowest in the playoffs since May 2, 2000. Marleau wasn't upset for the decline in playing time, though. He said it was "just the way the game was with some penalties here and there, and some faceoffs in our zone. ... You never know how things are going to play out." Marleau has been the Sharks' third line center for most of this season and he has posted one even strength point in the playoffs. He has been better on the power play, where he has contributed three points in seven matches.

Moving Patrick Marleau down to the third line gave the San Jose Sharks a huge advantage in Game 1.

The line of Marleau, Matt Nieto and Melker Karlsson was much the better line in Game 1 against their Los Angeles Kings counterparts led by Vincent Lecavalier. The Kings will need to figure out how to combat that in Game 2. Marleau ended the season with 25 goals and 23 assists in his worst season since 2001-02 when he had 44 points in 79 games.
Apr 16 - 9:20 AM

Patrick Marleau picked up another goal and an assist during Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Jets.

Apr 8 - 1:52 AM

Patrick Marleau scored his 12th even strength goal of the season during Tuesday's 3-0 win over Minnesota.

Marleau is now up to 24 goals this season. He probably won't crack 50 points, as he's only at 46 with a couple of games to go, but he has points in three of his last four games suggesting he's still in mid-season form.
Apr 6 - 2:22 AM

Patrick Marleau potted his 10th power play goal of the season during Thursday's 4-2 loss to Vancouver.

The tally started San Jose's comeback from 2-0 as well. The all-time greatest Shark is up to 22 goals and 44 points this season with 23 coming on the man advantage.
Apr 1 - 1:19 AM

Patrick Marleau was a minus-two Saturday and is now minus-22 for the season.

That's pretty bad and the Sharks have to be concerned about the play of the 36-year-old as he has only 21 goals and 42 points this season. His poor plus/minus certainly makes him a non-factor fantasy-wise with poolies who play the category.
Mar 27 - 11:24 AM

Patrick Marleau collected his third goal of March during Thursday's 6-3 loss to Edmonton.

Marleau's tally however tied the game at three midway through, and it was his ninth power play goal as well. The veteran's overall stats may be down this season but he's up to 21 goals and 42 points, which ain't half bad at all.
Mar 25 - 1:20 AM

Patrick Marleau scored a shorthanded goal in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Washington Capitals.

Marleau's goal gave the Sharks a 2-1 lead in the second period. Joel Ward and Marc-Edouard Vlasic assisted on the go-ahead goal. Marleau now has 20 goals and 20 assists in 68 games this season. It's the 13th time in his career that he hits the 20-goal mark.
