Sharks' Stalock Suffers Loss In Season Finale

News: Alex Stalock gave up three goals on 35 shots in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Kings. The fourth goal was an empty-netter.
Analysis: Alex Stalock took a step back in his development this season, posting an 8-9-2 record in 19 starts with a 2.60 GAA and .902 save percentage after going 12-5-2 with a 1.87 GAA and .932 save percentage in 2013-14. That could just be a reflection of the Sharks' all-around sub-par play, so there's still a chance that the 27-year-old assumes a starting role with San Jose next season as Antti Niemi is expected to depart in free agency.

Sharks' Stalock To Get Nod For Finale

News: Alex Stalock will receive the start in goal for Saturday's season finale against the Kings, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Alex Stalock's appointment to the starting role likely means that we've seen the last of Antti Niemi in a Sharks uniform, as he's slated to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason. Though it's possible the Sharks could be active on the trade market for a netminder this summer, Stalock seems likely to assume a full-time role with the club going forward. After posting spectacular numbers a season earlier, Stalock took a step back in 2014-15, posting an 8-8-2 record, 2.60 GAA, and .902 save percentage over his 21 appearances entering Saturday. Perhaps a strong finish against Los Angeles to end the campaign will provide the organization with more confidence about Stalock's prospects heading into next season.

Sharks' Stalock Lit Up By Stars

News: Alex Stalock was awful Monday, giving up five goals on just 25 shots in a 5-1 loss to the visiting Stars.
Analysis: An illness that held Alex Stalock out of two games seems to have killed his momentum, at least in this game, as he had allowed just five goals combined in his previous three starts against Colorado, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. Nonetheless, Stalock is now 8-8-2 with a 2.60 GAA and .902 save percentage on the season in limited action behind Antti Niemi, who is likely to depart San Jose in the offseason.

Sharks Turn To Stalock On Monday

News: Alex Stalock (illness) is slated to start Monday's game against the Stars, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Alex Stalock, who had been under the weather, returns to the San Jose net Monday, with the team still clinging to its slim playoff hopes. The Sharks would be eliminated by a loss Monday, or with a win by either the Kings or Jets.

Sharks' Stalock To Sit Friday

News: Alex Stalock (illness) won't start Friday's game against the Coyotes, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: The illness that sidelined Antti Niemi for the last few games appears to have subsided, but it's since been spread to Alex Stalock, who was feeling under the weather during Wednesday's win over the Avalanche but still managed to play. With Niemi now feeling healthy, Stalock will have the opportunity to rest up and recover, though he'll still be on hand to serve as the backup goalie. It's possible Stalock will feel well enough to play Saturday in Arizona.

Sharks' Stalock Dealing With Illness

News: Alex Stalock is dealing with an illness, leaving Antti Niemi as the likely starter for Friday's game against the Coyotes, CSN Bay Area's Kevin Kurz reports.
Analysis: Niemi missed the last three games because of an illness, and it's quite possible Alex Stalock is now bothered by the same thing. The Sharks have back-to-back games against the Coyotes this weekend, so Stalock could still be an option for Saturday, if he makes a quicker recovery than Niemi did.

Sharks' Stalock Beats Colorado

News: Alex Stalock turned aside 19 of 20 shots in a 5-1 win over the visiting Avalanche on Wednesday.
Analysis: Alex Stalock did his job against Colorado, with a third-period Matt Duchene power-play goal being the only puck that got past him. The 27-year-old is now 8-7-2 with a 2.47 GAA and .907 save percentage this season, including two shutouts. He hasn't seen much time behind workhorse Antti Niemi, but could assume a larger role next season if the Sharks decide not to re-sign Niemi.

Sharks' Stalock Confirmed For Wednesday

News: Alex Stalock will be between the pipes for Wednesday's game against the Avalanche, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Regular netminder Antti Niemi still isn't fully recovered from the illness he first suffered over the weekend, so Alex Stalock will be called upon to make a third straight start. He's played fairly well in his first two turns, beating the Flyers and taking an overtime loss to the Penguins while stopping 47 of 51 shots (.921 save percentage).

Sharks May Stick With Stalock On Wednesday

News: While Antti Niemi is feeling better, coach Todd McLellan relayed Tuesday that he is leaning toward starting Alex Stalock on Wednesday against the Avs, Curtis Pashelka of San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: Alex Stalock, who stopped 31 of 33 shots in Sunday's shootout loss to the Penguins, thus could be in line to make his third straight start Wednesday, matching up against an Avs squad that fell to the Oilers on Monday by a 4-1 score. Niemi is slated to be an unrestricted free agent after the season, and with the Sharks seemingly not intending to retain him, it could pave the way for Stalock to get the bulk of the starts the rest of the way.

Sharks' Stalock Stops 31 Shots In Loss

News: Alex Stalock made 31 saves on 33 shots in Sunday's shootout loss to the Penguins.
Analysis: A great effort from Alex Stalock, who was making the start in place of starter Antti Niemi, who was feeling under the weather. Stalock falls to 7-7-2 on the season with a .905 save percentage and 2.55 GAA. Niemi is the man in San Jose, but Stalock has been proven to be a decent backup option when he gets the call.

Sharks' Stalock Will Start Sunday

News: Alex Stalock will get the start in net Sunday, Kevin Kurz of CSN reports.
Analysis: Alex Stalock will start his second straight game as Antti Niemi is still feeling under the weather. In Saturday's shootout win over the Flyers, Stalock saved 16 of 18 shots. On the season, he holds a 2.60 GAA and .902 save percentage.

Alex Stalock

Sharks' Stalock Starts Saturday

News: Alex Stalock will start in net Saturday against the Flyers, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Alex Stalock hasn't made an appearance in net since March 18, but will finally return to the net Saturday. In 17 games this season, the netminder has posted a 6-7-1 record with a 2.65 GAA and .903 save percentage. He'll receive the benefit of facing a weak offensive opponent Saturday in the Flyers, who average a middling 2.57 goals per game.

Sharks' Stalock Shaky In Relief

News: Alex Stalock set aside 12 of 14 shots in relief of a struggling Antti Niemi in Tuesday's loss to the Jets.
Analysis: Alex Stalock finished the game after watching three goals get past Niemi in the first period. The Sharks were clearly outplayed on the offensive end, and Stalock didn't fare much better than Niemi, despite the light workload to finish the game. Stalock now has a .903 save percentage and 2.65 goals-against average in backup duty.

Second Shutout Of Season For Sharks' Stalock

News: Alex Stalock was perfect Monday, stopping all 20 shots in a 4-0 shutout over the visiting Canadiens.
Analysis: The Sharks' backup has made just 14 starts this season, posting a 6-7-1 record with two shutouts. He's been rather dismal with a 2.66 GAA and .904 save percentage -- which actually are in the same ballpark as starter Antti Niemi's 2.62 and .912 marks. However, even though the Sharks were rumored to be trying to deal Niemi before Monday's trade deadline, the fact remains that Niemi has made 48 starts this season and has a Stanley Cup under his belt, so he's more than likely going to get the bulk of the starts the rest of the way in San Jose. With that in mind, Alex Stalock makes for one of the least attractive backup 'tenders in the league -- at least for now.

Alex Stalock

Sharks' Stalock To Start Monday

News: Alex Stalock will start between the pipes against the Canadiens on Monday, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Alex Stalock will receive a rare start in net, with his last start coming Feb. 17 in which he allowed five goals on 37 shots. With back-to-back games for the Sharks on tap, Stalock will provide some relief Monday against the Canadiens, while Niemi will get the day off before presumably returning to the net Tuesday against the Canucks.

Sharks' Stalock Blown Up In Spot Start

News: Alex Stalock was tagged for five goals on 37 shots in Tuesday's loss to Nashville.
Analysis: Tasked with the unenviable role of countering Pekka Rinne on the other end, Alex Stalock just couldn't hang, as an early 1-0 lead for the Sharks was followed by five unanswered Nashville goals. He's now dropped three consecutive starts (giving up 13 goals in that span) and should continue seeing fairly infrequent action behind Antti Niemi.

Sharks' Stalock Confirmed To Play Tuesday

News: Alex Stalock has been confirmed to play Tuesday's game against the Predators, NHL.com's Robby Stanley reports.
Analysis: Alex Stalock will enter the crease as the heavy underdog to get the win, as he'll oppose Vezina Trophy frontrunner Pekka Rinne. With a 2.68 GAA and .903 save percentage on the season, Stalock hasn't performed well enough to challenge Antti Niemi for the No. 1 job.

Sharks Turn To Stalock On Tuesday

News: Alex Stalock is in line to start Tuesday's game against the Preds.
Analysis: Alex Stalock thus appears on track to see his first start since Feb. 4, on the heels of Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Lightning in which fellow goalie Antti Niemi gave up four goals on 32 shots.

Stalock' Falls In Rare Start

News: Alex Stalock allowed three goals on 23 shots in a 3-1 loss to the Flames on Wednesday.
Analysis: Making just his 14th appearance of the season, Alex Stalock underwhelmed for the second straight start, giving up eight goals in the two games. He hasn't received much work in relief of workhorse starter Antti Niemi, seeing game action just 10 times since Oct. 26. With the Sharks in a heated Western Conference playoff race, don't expect Stalock and his .903 save percentage and 2.68 GAA to get many nods in favor of Niemi. Niemi doesn't have significantly better numbers (.913 save percentage, 2.55 GAA) but has far more NHL experience with 310 starts under his belt compared to Stalock's 30.

Sharks' Stalock In Net Thursday

News: Alex Stalock will start in net Thursday against the Flames, Curtis Pashelka of San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: Alex Stalock will receive the start for the second day of back-to-back games for the Sharks. He struggled in his last outing, letting five of the 34 shots he faced past him in a 5-2 loss to the Devils on Jan. 20. He will likely head back to the bench following Thursday's contest, receiving the occasional spot start.

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.
