Sharks gave up the first goal, came from behind TWICE, but scored three in the third to put an exclamation point on the game. Donskoi returned to play.

Sharks hit the road for one, opening up a home-and-home against the Canucks.

Canucks have lost their last two games. While not yet mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, in the seven remaining games, the Canucks are essentially playing for pride and jobs next season.  Markstrom starting for Canucks.

Reimer probable starter for Sharks.

Sharks were down 0-2, but scored one in 2nd, and two in 3rd to win from behind, again!

And two days later the two teams face off in a different venue: SAP Center.

Reimer has been announced as the starter for the Sharks.  Wingels is out; Tennyson out.

Sharks demolished the Canadiens 6-2 in their last game.

Reimer will be joining the team in Vancouver after his trade.  (Dell assigned to AHL.  DeMelo demoted and recalled; Haley recalled to fill in forward depth.)

Five Sharks were named to the preliminary roster for World Cup on four teams.  Congrats to Donskoi (Finland), Hertl and Polak (Czech Republic), Vlasic (Canada) and Pavelski (USA).

Vancouver lost to Islanders on Tuesday and would like to not add to their loss column and get some revenge for the loss on Sunday.

Barracuda vs Heat 160301

The boys return home for three games.  First up: Stockton.  (This weekend’s games are against Bakersfield.)

ATO White released; Rumpel recalled from ECHL. DeMelo assigned to AHL.

Morin arrived from AHL on Monday, but his equipment didn’t arrive until after morning skate on Tuesday. Regardless, he made his Barracuda debut on Tuesday.  DeMelo was a healthy scratch.  McLaren too, but did participate in the pregame skate.

Cuda were up 2-0 before the first media break.  The Heat’s starter was pulled after giving up 6, but the Cuda were not done.  Strong statement made with 7-1 win.  Four Barracuda PPGs, one SHG.  And the only goal they gave up was a man advantage.

On Friday, the Sharks took the lead, but could only get one past the Sabres’ Johnson.  Meanwhile, Jones let two in (plus an empty netter).  Close game.  DeBoer was non-commital over the starting goalie in the next two games before Friday’s game.

The Canucks are looking for their first three-game winning streak this season, when they host the Sharks on Sunday evening.  Canucks won Thursday against the visiting Senators.

On Saturday, the Sharks traded backup Stalock (and Ben Smith, pick) to Toronto for James Reimer and prospect Jeremy Morin.  Morin is reporting to the Barracuda, but it’ll be a couple of days for Reimer’s work visa to be arranged for him to join the team, so Aaron Dell has been recalled from AHL Barracuda. DW says “never say never” that he’s done trading (prior to TDL), but he has addressed the three areas they needed help in the most.

The Canucks’ may be distracted by upcoming TDL:  Hamhuis is rumored to be on the move.

Guessing Jones will get the start vs Miller.

Sharks Training Camp day 12 (150929)

Sharks hosted the Vancouver Canucks for their final home preseason contest.

Jones faced 31 shots, but only gave up one goal on a breakaway.

Wingels and Burns notched two for the Sharks to put the win for the fans.

Sparse building, felt like 1/3rd filled, more clumps in some areas, and large numbers of empty rows in others.

Tierney took a puck to the face, retreated to the locker room for repairs and returned to play.

(Technical issues prevented me from listening to the in arena radio feed.)

Right back at it.  This time, facing the Canucks at their home rink in Vancouver.

Some of the players from Monday will be playing in the back-to-back, but a lot will be different.  (My guess — some of the rookies/prospects will; and not all the “vets” who didn’t play last night will.)

Pregame update: five vets didn’t even travel to Canada for these two games. Expect the new guys to play tonight (Martin Jones, Paul Martin, Joel Ward).

Reaction — Martin Jones gets shutout win.  4 goals, including 2 on the PPG.  And some of the young kids looking real good.  That felt a lot better than this time last night!
