If you were to evaluate the NHL's Pacific Division race by the last three weeks, you'd think the Arizona Coyotes were the front-running team and the San Jose Sharks were an also-ran. After all, Arizona is 7-3-1 in its last 11 contests and San Jose has won just three of its last nine (3-2-4). In San Jose's case, fatigue may be setting in as the Pacific Division leader approaches...

I call Joe Pavelski "Mr. Consistency" because every season you can make him down for 30 goals, 40 assists and solid contributions elsewhere. It's generally not flashy, just a consistent point with three shots, but at the end of the year it's good enough to justify a first round pick on him. Pavelski showed on Wednesday night that he's capable of dominating a game. Pavelski had...
In this scoring-deprived era in the NHL, reaching 1,000 points is an impressive milestone. It signifies a player has been at least very productive for a long time. Many times, like with Henrik Sedin last month, it happens when a player is reaching the end of his career. Sometimes, like with Alex Ovechkin last month or Joe Thornton a few years back, a player has a good amount left...

A player reaching 1,000 points in their NHL career is a pretty special accomplishment applauded by fans and players alike. Henrik Sedin recently hit the 1,000-point milestone and received a special congratulatory message from Logan Couture right before a faceoff. Some accomplishments transcend any rivalries and competitions. That’s a special moment and fans are lucky it was captured.
Being a social media manager for a big, public account is a difficult task. One small mistake on a tweet can be immediately amplified and scrutinized, as the official NHL account found out this morning.The NHL sent out a congratulatory tweet to San Jose Sharks forward Patrick Marleau for his 500th career goal. There was an issue with the post, however, as instead of using video of...
The San Jose Sharks’ goalie, Martin Jones, has gone from undrafted goalie all the way to fan favorite and All-Star. The Los Angles Kings originally signed Jones and as he started to steal games, other teams became interested. The Kings were not going to trade away their current goalie, Jonathan Quick, so they thought it was best to part ways with the younger Martin Jones. He was...

Thanks to the announcement prospective top-six forward in Clarke MacArthur would miss the remainder of the season with a concussion, speculation as to how the Senators would fill that void led to wondering about whether the team would attempt to bring in a top-six forward or find a depth forward. The answer came yesterday afternoon when the Senators announced that the organization...
Here’s something you might have missed in your East Coast slumber last night: Patrick Marleau went all Mario Lemieux on the Colorado Avalanche, scoring four goals in a period for the first time since Le Magnifique did it in 1997. When you join a list with Mario Lemieux on it, it’s mighty impressive … especially when you’re only the 12th person on that list. Just as impressive...
Tito Ortiz defeated Chael Sonnen by submission in the first round of their fight at Bellator 170 on Saturday at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif. in what was his final fight. Ortiz held onto his choke well beyond the point of Sonnen tapping out, forcing referee Big John McCarthy to pull Ortiz off Sonnen. Tito held on to that choke way too long #Bellator170 pic.twitter.com/UrRlSqShh9...
Brent Burns and Joe Thornton aren’t only San Jose Sharks teammates, they’re beard brothers. The two superstars boast the fantastically long and unkempt beards in NHL history, something that’s made the instantly recognizable both on and off the ice. The beards of Burns and Thornton take center stage in a delightful ad promoting the latter’s upcoming “Joe Thornton Chia...
1) When will Tomas Hertl return to the ice? San Jose Sharks’ forward, Tomas Hertl, injured his right knee for the third time in his three year career about two months ago. He had surgery to repair it in hopes to prevent similar injuries in the future. All anyone seems to know regarding the injury is that he is making progress but cannot skate yet and that there is no timetable...
Vigilante style justice is always an underlying feature in the NHL. But it’s rare when it’s star-on-star violence. You saw that Wednesday night as Ottawa’s Mike Hoffman decided to respond to a push to the ice by Logan Couture with a nasty crosscheck to Couture’s head. Couture left the game and didn’t return. Hoffman also did not return to the game, because he was given...
