Video- Have A Night Patrick Marleau

from Curtis Pashelka of the Mercury News,

Patrick Marleau is the owner of just about every career record for goal scoring in Sharks franchise history. But he’s never had a game like Monday’s against the Colorado Avalanche.

With his team needing a spark, Marleau came through with one of the most memorable games of his 19-year NHL career, scoring four third period goals in the Sharks’ 5-2 win over the Avalanche.

Marleau scored at 2:53, 5:57 and the 10:35 marks of the third period, then finished his electrifying night with a breakaway goal with 3:37 to go as the Sharks picked up their season-high fifth straight win.

“Tonight was a lot of fun,” said Marleau, who is now at 497 goals for his NHL career.

Another Loss For The Winnipeg Jets

from Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun,

Perhaps the most interesting thing that came out of Paul Maurice’s post-game press conference Monday was something he didn’t say.

He didn’t say “No.”

He was asked if the reeling Jets team — which had just lost it’s fourth straight game 5-2 to the San Jose Sharks — would consider calling up veteran goalie Ondrej Pavelec to solve their crippling goaltending woes.

“Oh, we talk about all aspects of our game,” was Maurice’s only response.

So you’re saying there’s a chance?

By no means is goaltending the only problem the Jets are dealing with. They are loose in the defensive zone and have only been able to stick to their gameplan for a period here or a period there for the last week.

It has all added up to humbling losses to the Montreal Canadiens, Arizona Coyotes and Sharks and an overtime heartbreaker against the Los Angeles Kings.


Watch the game highlights below...

A Wild Comeback

from Michael Russo of Russo's Rants,

Just what we all expected from the two best defensive teams in the West – a six-goal third period, four from the Wild, during a 5-4 come-from-behind Minnesota victory.

What a way to avoid the Wild’s second regulation losing streak of the season. The Wild scored at least four goals in the third period for the 10th time in franchise history and the first time since opening night in Colorado in 2015.

The Wild also overcame multiple deficits of 2+ goals to win for just the second time in franchise history (also Dec. 4, 2009 vs ANA: 5-4 SO W).

Instead, the Wild rallied for a seventh straight road win. It’s now 15-2-3 in its past 20 and 8-1-3 in its past 12 on the road....

Down 2-1 in the third period thanks to Eric Staal’s power-play goal with 61 seconds left in the second to give Minnesota life in a game it was being outshot 23-10 in, Zach Parise, who looked like the Parise of old, tied the score 2:08 into the third.

But, starting at the 3:49 mark, Joel Ward and Patrick Marleau scored 32 seconds apart to put the Wild in a 4-2 hole.

Video- Steve Mason Suffered A Hand Injury In Loss To The Sharks

from Sam Carchidi of Philly.com,

They lost a game and a goalie on Friday night at the SAP Center, dropping a 2-0 decision to the physical San Jose Sharks.

Goalie Steve Mason injured his left hand in a first-period collision with Joe Thornton and was replaced by Anthony Stolarz to start the second period. Mason kept the Flyers in the game during a San Jose-dominated opening period, stopping 11 of 12 shots.

General manager Ron Hextall said Mason was "nicked up and we'll know more" on Saturday.

The Flyers, who have lost five of six since their 10-game winning streak ended, play in Anaheim on Sunday.

Video- Marc-Edouard Vlassic Takes A Slap Shot To The Face

via Kevin Kurz of CSN BayArea,

Despite leading 2-0 in the final minute, the Sharks went all out to preserve the shutout for their teammate in net. The Flyers pulled goalie Anthony Stolarz and got set up in the offensive zone, when a Shayne Gostisbehere slap shot deflected up into the face of Vlasic, who was protecting the crease.

The defenseman took several moments to get to his skates, and was eventually helped to the dressing room. DeBoer, who said that Vlasic was unlikely to play in Los Angeles on Saturday, offered the following update after the game:

“As bad as it looked and as bad as it probably is, I’ve got my fingers crossed. The initial reports are that I don’t believe it’s that serious, so that’s good,” he said.

Braun revealed that the shot hit Vlasic underneath the visor. He saw him after the game, and said, “He looks alright. A little swollen. It's hard to see your teammate take one of those, as bad as it looked.”

And Braun’s message to his D partner?

“I told him, ‘good block.’"

Blackhawks, Blues Set To Square Off In NHL Winter Classic, Tickets Are Soaring

By Tim Dolan,

The 2017 NHL Winter Classic is rapidly approaching, set to be played on Monday, January 2, at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. This year, the game will feature two Western Conference rivals, with the St. Louis Blues taking on the Chicago Blackhawks at the home of Major League Baseball’s St. Louis Cardinals.

It will be the first ever hockey game played at Busch Stadium and this matchup marks the 50th anniversary of the Great Expansion of 1967, in which the Blues -- and a host of other clubs -- joined the NHL, doubling the league’s size. St. Louis will be playing in their first ever outdoor game, while the Blackhawks will be appearing in their third Winter Classic. Additionally, this will be Chicago’s fourth straight season playing an outdoor game, as they regularly garner participation in some of hockey’s special regular season contests. As a result, the Blackhawks might have the advantage here despite playing on the road, with the Blues never playing in an outdoor game before.
