Sharks' Stalock Gives Up Five In Loss

News: Alex Stalock let in five goals on 34 shots in a disappointing 5-2 loss to the visiting Devils on Monday.
Analysis: Alex Stalock hasn't been very good since the calendar flipped to 2015, as he's now allowed 11 goals on 78 shots in four appearances. There was a point in the season where it looked like the 27-year-old would steal the starting gig from Antti Niemi, but with a 5-5-1 record, 2.65 GAA and .905 save percentage, the likelihood of that happening is slim at this point, especially since the Sharks will want to turn to the veteran Niemi down the stretch as they look to secure a playoff spot.

Sharks Turn To Stalock On Monday

News: Alex Stalock is in line to start Monday's game against New Jersey, David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: The start will be Alex Stalock's 11 of the season and first since Jan.6, though he has seen work in relief of starter Antti Niemi twice since then. Overall, Stalock is 5-4-1, with a 2.43 GAA and .912 save percentage.

Sharks Could Go With Stalock On Monday

News: Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area expects Alex Stalock to start Monday's game against New Jersey.
Analysis: If so, Alex Stalock would be making his first start in net for the Sharks since Jan. 6, when he surrendered three goals on 31 shots in 4-3 overtime win over Minnesota.

Sharks' Stalock Offers Little Relief Thursday

News: Alex Stalock stopped just five of the seven shots he faced in relief of Antti Niemi in Thursday's loss to the Blues.
Analysis: The Sharks were handed their second 7-2 loss to the Blues in less than a week, as neither of the team's goalies came through in this one. Alex Stalock perhaps would have had the chance at making an argument for more usage if he had clotted the bleeding, but his failure to do so should allow Niemi to enjoy continued job security.

Sharks' Stalock Holds On For OT Win

News: Alex Stalock allowed three goals on 31 shots and ended up with a 4-3 overtime victory Tuesday in Minnesota.
Analysis: He gave up the game-tying goal to Jason Zucker late in the third, but held the Wild down for long enough thereafter until Marc-Edouard Vlasic delivered the game-winner in overtime. The win is Alex Stalock's first since Dec. 11, though he starts sparingly as the backup to Antti Niemi.

Sharks' Stalock Earns Tuesday Nod

News: Alex Stalock will be in the cage Tuesday against the Wild, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Alex Stalock will enter the net for the second game of a back-to-back for the Sharks, matching up against his hometown team. The 27-year-old previously stopped 18 Wild shots in a 2-1 win back in December, but this will mark his first career start at the Xcel Energy Center.

Sharks' Stalock Steps In For Pulled Niemi

News: Alex Stalock stopped five of six shots in relief of Antti Niemi Saturday against the Blues.
Analysis: It wasn't much of a test for Alex Stalock, as the Blues had scored six goals on Niemi before he was brought in. The 27-year-old has been a reliable backup goalie this season, posting a 4-4-1 record, to go with a .918 save percentage and 2.27 GAA. He's only played 10 games this season, but whenever Niemi gets the night off, he makes for a reliable spot start.

Sharks' Stalock Stops Just 18 In Loss

News: Alex Stalock gave up three goals on 21 shots in Tuesday's loss to Vancouver.
Analysis: Making his first start since Dec. 11, Alex Stalock wasn't as sharp as we've come to expect from him this year. He'll almost surely return to the bench behind regular starter Antti Niemi when the Sharks visit Anaheim on Wednesday to complete a back-to-back set.

Sharks' Stalock Starting Tuesday

News: Alex Stalock will start Tuesday's game against the Canucks, David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: With San Jose playing the first game of a back-to-back, Alex Stalock will get the nod over Antti Niemi, who will likely be back in net for Wednesday's game in Anaheim. Stalock hasn't made an appearance since Dec. 11, when he stopped 18-of-19 shots in a 2-1 win over the Wilds.

Stalock, Sharks Edge Wild

News: Alex Stalock stopped 18 of 19 in Thursday's 2-1 win over Minnesota.
Analysis: With Antti Niemi (undisclosed) hurting a bit, Alex Stalock's ended up starting three games in a row for the Sharks, and he's delivered a .917 save mark or better in each of them. However, Niemi -- despite a tendency toward streakiness -- has played fairly well as the starter and doesn't appear set to give up the role, leaving Stalock as merely a high-upside backup.

Sharks' Stalock Gets The Nod Thursday

News: Alex Stalock will be between the pipes for Thursday's game against the Wild.
Analysis: Alex Stalock will start his third straight game, which may just be for precautionary purposes with Antti Niemi battling a minor injury. Stalock will take on a Minnesota squad that has alternated wins and losses over its last nine games, but scored at least four goals in four of those contests.

Stalock's 25 Saves Help Sharks Defeat Edmonton

News: Alex Stalock and the Sharks got revenge against the Oilers on Tuesday, as he allowed two goals on 27 shots in a 5-2 victory.
Analysis: Frankly, it was a pretty similar game for Alex Stalock to Sunday's 2-1 loss in Edmonton, when he stopped 22 shots, but got just one goal of offensive support. He's now drawn two starts in a row for San Jose, and as he's posted good results, we'll be interested to see whether he draws a third Thursday against visiting Minnesota.

SJ's Stalock Takes Loss In Return

News: Alex Stalock stopped 22 of 24 in his return from injury, but it wasn't enough for the win, as Edmonton won Sunday's game 2-1.
Analysis: Alex Stalock played well, finishing up the night with a save percentage of .917. After a start like that, expect to see Stalock in net again. Maybe not next game, but he'll be back to being a number two goaltender who gets a good number of starts.

Sharks' Stalock Will Start Sunday

News: Alex Stalock will start between the pipes Sunday against the Oilers, David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: Alex Stalock will be playing in his first game since Nov. 8 and fifth overall this season. He currently is allowing 2.38 goals on average over that stretch of five games.

Stalock Likely To Start For Sharks

News: Alex Stalock is the likely starter for the Sharks in the second game of a back-to-back against Edmonton on Sundday, according to CSN Bay Area.
Analysis: If Alex Stalock gets the net, it'll be his first start since November 8, when he left the lineup with an injury. Through five games this season Stalock has a .925 save percentage and a 2.38 goals against average.

Sharks Activate Stalock

News: Alex Stalock (knee) was activated by the Sharks on Saturday, David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: Starting goaltender Antti Niemi has been underwhelming for the Sharks thus far this season. If the veteran Finnish netminder continues to struggle, Alex Stalock will likely begin to steal some starts from Niemi in net moving forward.

Sharks' Stalock Resumes Skating

News: Alex Stalock (knee) has been skating on his own the past two days, David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: Alex Stalock is nearing the two-week mark of the two- to four-week timetable the Sharks prescribed for him following a minor knee procedure, but it doesn't sound like he's especially close to returning just yet. He'll probably need to start getting more positional work in during the upcoming week in order to demonstrate to the Sharks that he's getting healthier.

Sharks' Stalock Undergoes Minor Knee Surgery

News: Alex Stalock underwent minor surgery on his left knee Thursday and is expected to miss around two-to-four weeks, Curtis Pashelka of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: The timetable isn't necessarily firm, so if Alex Stalock is able to resume skating quickly, he could end up beating that recovery window. Nonetheless, it looks like at the very least, Antti Niemi will assume the next several starts in goal for the Sharks, as newly-recalled backup Troy Grosenick is unlikely to see much work behind him.

Sharks' Stalock Diagnosed With Lower-Body Injury

News: Alex Stalock is dealing with a lower-body injury, Curtis Pashelka of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: Alex Stalock was inexplicably scratched from Tuesday's scheduled start in favor of Antti Niemi, with news that he was hurting not surfacing until the Sharks placed him on injured reserve Wednesday. It appears Stalock's injury stems from his previous start Saturday against the Stars, during which he took a hit from Antoine Roussel and fell to the ice for a few moments before remaining in the game. An official timetable hasn't been announced for his recovery, though coach Todd McLellan acknowledged that newly-recalled goalie Troy Grosenick would be with the Sharks "for a little while." Expect McLellan to lean even more heavily on Niemi while Stalock remains unavailable for the Sharks.

Sharks' Stalock Placed On IR

News: Alex Stalock was placed on injured reserve Thursday with an undisclosed injury.
Analysis: Alex Stalock's surprising move to injured reserve comes just a day after coach Todd McLellan scratched him from an expected start because he "wasn't able to go." McLellan didn't elaborate on what forced Stalock out of action, but it should become more apparent in the coming days what might be ailing him. Stalock's value had plummeted in recent weeks with Antti Niemi solidifying himself as the clear No. 1 starter for the Sharks, and the backup's value could only dip from here. Troy Grosenick was recalled from AHL Worcester in a corresponding move, but he seems unlikely to see much usage behind Niemi while Stalock is out.

Sharks' Stalock Scratched From Start Tuesday

News: Despite coach Todd McLellan's announcement at Tuesday's morning skate that Alex Stalock would start later that night against the Panthers, Antti Niemi ended up getting the nod, Curtis Pashelka of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: Both of the San Jose goalies took part in warmups in what amounted to some subterfuge on the part of McLellan and frustration on the part of fantasy players. If nothing else, McLellan's decision to start Niemi for the seventh time in eight games further indicates that he's clearly separated himself as the Sharks' No. 1 option ahead of Alex Stalock.

Sharks Going With Stalock On Tuesday

News: Alex Stalock will be in the cage Tuesday against the Panthers, Curtis Pashelka of the Contra Costa Times reports.
Analysis: Alex Stalock will earn his second turn in three games after pulling out a 37-save win Saturday against the Stars. Tuesday will mark the beginning of a stretch of four games in six days for the Sharks, who figure to give two starts apiece to Stalock and top netminder Antti Niemi. After Tuesday's outing, look for Stalock to make his second turn of the week either Saturday in Columbus or Sunday in Carolina, either of which would represent a favorable matchup.

Sharks' Stalock Makes 37 Saves In Win

News: Alex Stalock made 37 saves on 40 shots in Saturday's win over Dallas.
Analysis: Even though he appears stapled to a backup role behind Antti Niemi, Alex Stalock is now 2-2-1 on the year and will continue to see his fair share of starts as the season wears on. He was excellent Saturday, getting his first win in four games. Stalock is a reliable fantasy option whenever Niemi is on the bench.

Sharks Poised To Start Stalock On Saturday

News: Alex Stalock was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and appears likely to receive the start Saturday against the Stars, Kevin Kurz of CSNBayArea.com reports.
Analysis: It no longer looks like Alex Stalock is in contention for the No. 1 goalie job, as Antti Niemi has solidified his standing atop the depth chart with five consecutive starts. Still, Stalock should remain a quality fantasy option nearly every time he gets the nod, Saturday's start included. Though the Stars have a collection of talented players on offense, they'll start one of the weaker backup goalies in Anders Lindback, putting Stalock in good shape to snag a win.

Sharks' Stalock Poor In Loss Saturday

News: Alex Stalock turned in a poor performance Saturday, managing saves on just 13 of 15 shots in a 2-1 loss to the visiting Sabres.
Analysis: This was the third straight loss for Alex Stalock, who hasn't done much to wrestle the starting reins away from Antti Niemi thus far this season. After two solid performances that featured just three goals on 72 shots, the Sharks' backup has turned aside just 38 of 44 shots in losses to the Rangers and Sabres, so it looks like Niemi is trending toward taking on his usual hefty workload with Stalock floundering.
