San Jose Sharks Fantasy Spin

Martin Jones allowed four goals on 38 shots in a 4-0 loss against the Avalanche on Thursday night. Jones was beat through the five-hole following a power move to the net by Avs forward Nishushkin in the opening minute of play. With three seconds remaining in the first period, the 30-year old netminder allowed a goal from the point immediately following a faceoff, in which he never saw based on his reaction. Two more tallies and no-goal support later, the North Vancouver native is now winless in his last three starts and has won just once since the beginning of December (10 starts). Jones’ 2019-20 record is now 13-16-2 with a 3.22 goals-against average and a .891 save percentage.

Vancouver Canucks Fantasy Spin

Jacob Markstrom made 34 saves on 35 shots in a 3-1 win against the Coyotes on Thursday night. The Swedish netminder avoided back-to-back losses with a terrific performance against the Coyotes. Despite allowing the first goal of the contest, which was scored off a one-timer from the slot, Markstrom was otherwise impenetrable, stopping 10-plus shots in each period. The 29-year old has won nine of his last 11 starts and owns a 18-13-3 record during the 2019-20 season, accompanied by a 2.71 goals-against average and a .916 save percentage.
