Joe Thornton saw his five game points streak come to an end Sunday.

Thornton is closing in on 1,000 career assists and is still just two shy after his former club, the Boston Bruins, shut him down. Thornton has only five goals and 39 points in 60 games as his age looks to be catching up to him. He is a fringe starter in most pools at best.

Brent Burns picked up an assist on the Sharks lone goal Sunday and now is only three points in arrears of Connor McDavid for the NHL scoring lead.

Burns also had a whopping seven shots on goal and leads the NHL with 242 shots. His 64 points including 27 goals are truly amazing for a defenseman with over a week still to go in February. He is a must-start.

Martin Jones made 26 saves on 28 shots in a 2-1 loss to Boston on Sunday.

Jones rebounded from a six-goal outing vs. Florida last week, but was beaten by Brad Marchand in overtime. He falls to 28-15-6 this season with a 2.34 goals against average and .913 save percentage.
Feb 20 - 12:08 AM

Patrick Marleau scored the lone Sharks goal on Sunday night in a 2-1 loss to the Bruins in overtime.

The 37-year-old has shown that he still has some magic in him, as he's up to 21 goals and 34 points in 60 games.
Feb 20 - 12:01 AM

Marcus Sorensen and Mirco Mueller will be scratched against the Bruins on Sunday.

Sorensen has just two games under his belt with the Sharks, boasting a point in that time. Mueller also has a point in four games.
Feb 19 - 7:22 PM

Martin Jones will be back in net against the Bruins on Sunday.

The rock-steady netminder has not fared nearly as well against Eastern foes this season. He's 12-5-2 in 20 games with a pair of shutouts, a 2.62 GAA and a .903 save percentage.

Melker Karlsson had a goal and two assists Saturday in a 4-1 win over Arizona.

The fourth line was dynamite for San Jose Saturday as they were involved in each of the first three goals. Karlsson has eight goals and 17 points this season but had only one goal and nary an assist in his previous nine games.
Feb 19 - 8:35 AM

Defenseman Brent Burns has 18 of his 27 goals on the road this season.

That is amazing as the blueliner remains in third place in NHL scoring, one behind Sidney Crosby and four in arrears of Connor McDavid with 63 points after a two goal effort on Saturday. He has six points in his last three games and currently is a shoo-in to win the Norris Trophy.
Feb 19 - 8:31 AM

Micheal Haley scored his first goal of the season and added an assist in the 4-1 win against the Coyotes Saturday night.

This was Haley’s fourth goal of his career. Last year he scored one goal in 16 games with the Sharks, but failed to earn another point. So far in 2016-2017, he has earned nine assists in addition to his goal, making it his most productive season at the top level. This is the second time this season Haley has scored two points in a game; his first such effort came January 10 against the Oilers.
