Martin Jones made 33 saves in Tuesday's 2-0 win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

It's an impressive win for the 26-year-old. This was just Jones' second shutout since Nov. 21. He has a 25-15-3 record with a 2.38 goals-against-average and a .915 save percentage this season. He'll continue to serve as the Sharks' number one goaltender and he'll remain a good (not great) fantasy option.

Joe Thornton scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 2-0 win over Chicago.

Jumbo Joe had a hand in both of San Jose's markers in this one. He assisted on Patrick Marleau's power play goal in the second period and he added a goal of his own with just over a minute remaining. The 36-year-old has picked up at least one point in 13 of his last 14 contests. Thornton has 12 goals and 46 points in 52 games this season.
Feb 10 - 12:09 AM

Coach Peter DeBoer has elected for forego lineup changes for Tuesday's match with Chicago.

This isn't anything new as Mike Brown and Matt Tennyson have been the most frequent scratches of late.
Feb 9 - 7:27 PM

Martin Jones will face Chicago on Tuesday night.

Jones has been less than stellar against Western foes this season, going 12-11-3 with a .903 save percentage and a 2.63 GAA. He's also gone 0-1-1 with eight goals against in two games against Chicago. So this may be a start to skip.

Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area is speculating on the top four places that Patrick Marleau could be traded to at or before the deadline.

The top four teams in the running according to Kurz are: Anaheim, St. Louis, Nashville and the Rangers. Of course, he may not be traded and remain in San Jose. Marleau has a no-trade clause which could make things difficult to a certain extent. Marleau has 15 goals and 32 points with a minus-16 rating this season which is nothing special for poolies.
Feb 9 - 10:12 AM

Dylan DeMelo had an assist in the Sharks' 6-2 loss to Nashville on Saturday.

DeMelo has just three points in 26 contests this season. Two of those points have come in his last four games though.
Feb 7 - 6:13 AM

Joe Thornton scored and assisted in the Sharks’ 6-2 loss to the Predators on Saturday night.

The 36-year-old’s still got it. He has 11 goals and 44 points in 51 games, and seems to be getting better as the season progresses, now with points in 12 of his past 13 games. Logan Couture also got a goal and an assist.
Feb 6 - 11:01 PM

Martin Jones was roughed up for five goals on 29 shots in the Sharks’ 6-2 loss to the Predators on Saturday night.

Jones has been erratic lately, alternating good and bad starts over his past seven games. He has a 2.43 GAA and .914 SV%. He’s more of a number-two netminder in fantasy leagues.
Feb 6 - 11:01 PM

Mike Brown and Matt Tennyson will both be scratched against Nashville on Saturday night.

Unfortunately their fantasy value has been stymied by a whole lot of not playing. Tennyson hasn't played since Dec. 8th, and Brown hasn't played since Jan. 24th. The veteran pugilist's 119 hits and 59 PIMs are impressive though, so keep him in mind if you ever need a plug.
Feb 6 - 7:26 PM

Martin Jones will face Nashville on Saturday night.

Thrice over his last five starts have three pucks beaten Jones in a start, while he went 1-1-1 to Minnesota, LA, and Anaheim, you have to imagine he and San Jose want better. Jones hosts a 24-14-3 record with a .915 save percentage and 2.37 GAA, and though he lost to Nashville in his one previous start one can also imagine the Sharks coming through with a better effort tonight.
Feb 6 - 6:19 PM

Martin Jones allowed just one goal on 27 shots in the Sharks' 3-1 win over St. Louis on Thursday night.

The 26-year-old is continuing to impress in his first season as a starter with a 24-14-3 record, 2.40 goals against average and .914 save percentage.
Feb 4 - 11:46 PM

Joe Pavelski chipped in two assists to help the Sharks down the Blues 3-1 on Thursday night.

The 31-year-old has eight points in his past six games and is producing at just over a point-per-game pace through 50 games as he has 51. Pavelski owns a plus-19 rating this season.
Feb 4 - 11:38 PM

Matt Tennyson is a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the St. Louis Blues.

The 25-year-old has been a healthy scratch in every game since Dec. 9. He has one goal and three points in 23 games this season. Mike Brown will also watch from the press box.

Martin Jones was the first goalie off the ice following the Sharks' morning skate.

That's usually a good indication of who the starter will be. Jones has a 2.40 GAA and .914 save percentage in 41 contests in 2015-16.
Feb 4 - 1:19 PM

Tomas Hertl has recorded 11 points in his last 11 games.

It helps that Hertl has been playing alongside Joe Pavelski and Joe Thornton lately. "First half, the goals weren't really coming," Hertl said. "So it was a little bit frustrating, because I had 19 games and no goals. That's pretty long. Now I just go to net, get bounces and score. It's way better. The biggest thing is that we're winning too." Hertl has plenty of offensive potential, but he's struggled over the last two seasons to live up to it. Those growing pains are understandable though and it wouldn't be surprising to see him finish the 2015-16 campaign on a high note.
