Martin Jones allowed four goals on 24 shots in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Minnesota Wild.

Another rough night for Jones. He has now allowed 17 goals over his last four starts, winning just one of those contests. It's fair to wonder if the Sharks will begin to give backup goaltender Aaron Dell more of an opportunity over the next few games. Jones has an 11-7-2 record with a 2.49 goals against average and .915 save percentage.

Brent Burns scored a pair of goals in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Minnesota Wild.

Both of his goals came on the power play, his first with a two-man advantage and the other with just the extra man. He is now up to four goals and 18 points in 27 games this season, way off his career high of 0.92 points-per-game set last season. However, the 32-year-old blueliner has 11 points in his last 10 games and looks well on his way to returning to the top of the charts for points amongst rearguards.
Dec 10 - 11:50 PM

Martin Jones will get the call in goal for San Jose on Sunday night.

Jones is 11-7-1 with a 2.42 goals against average and .919 save percentage this season. Jones will be well-rested for the Sharks since Aaron Dell was in net for Saturday's 5-0 victory.

Dylan DeMelo took a butt end to his face Saturday from Alex Burrows and did not return.

It happened in the third period and Burrows got five and a game for his misdeed and could possibly be facing some discipline from the NHL. "It was a butt end in the face. I had a pretty clear view of it," Logan Couture said. "It’s unfortunate. He cuts him and gets him between the eyes. It’s something that doesn’t belong in this game and it’s a player that’s had a history." DeMelo played only 8:19 Saturday and has two assists in 12 games. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Aaron Dell secured his second shutout of the season following a 5-0 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday.

Dell only had to face 25 saves, in comparison to Anderson's 50, and ended up recording the victoru. It came against a Senators team that's been firing blanks as of late. Dell has a 5-3-1 record with a 1.72 goals-against-average and a .939 save percentage.

Logan Couture scored a goal and two assists in a 5-0 blowout victory against the Ottawa Senators on Saturday night.

Dec 9 - 3:09 PM

Paul Martin didn't skate Saturday morning and will spend some time in the AHL for conditioning.

Martin logged just 12:54 of ice time in his return to the lineup from an ankle injury on Thursday. Coach Peter DeBoer said the team considered a minor-league stint for Martin before the game, but decide against it. Now, they believe it is the right decision.
Dec 9 - 2:24 PM

Barclay Goodrow (lower body) didn't take part in Saturday's morning skate.

Goodrow is projected to be out of action for about a week. He has two goals and two assists in nine games this season.
Dec 9 - 2:15 PM

Aaron Dell is expected to start Saturday against Ottawa.

Dell was the first goaltender off the ice at the morning skate, so he is slated to play against the Senators. The Sharks host Minnesota on Sunday, so Martin Jones will probably start that contest.

Daniel O'Regan has been sent to the minors.
