SAN JOSE, Calif. Ali Marpet Jersey . - San Jose coach Todd McLellan would seem to have plenty to be pleased about after watching his team post consecutive shutouts to open the season.Instead, he wanted to dwell on an inept power play that failed to convert on eight chances and a sloppy second half of the game in the home opener.Marc-Edouard Vlasic and Tomas Hertl scored first-period goals, and Alex Stalock made 30 saves to give the Sharks a 3-0 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday night.People who didnt see the game, theyre going to say, Boy, the Sharks are off to a pretty good start, McLellan said. But that was not a well-played game on our behalf by any means. I thought we played a good 26, 27 minutes. Then after that we werent close to being the better team. I thought our power play absolutely sucked the life out of our team today. Thats probably as weak as its been in a long, long time.The Sharks retooled their power-play units this season after the loss of quarterback Dan Boyle to have two more evenly matched groups instead of loading up the first unit. Neither group generated many scoring opportunities, with just six shots in 15:41 of power-play time.The puck was bouncing a little bit, forward Patrick Marleau said. Passes werent on the tape. I think we were trying to be too fancy. Theyve got some good penalty killers over there and get sticks on passes, but I think we need to funnel more pucks to the net and try to get those ugly goals.Marleau added an insurance goal late in the second period in the Sharks home opener. San Jose began the season with a 4-0 win behind Antti Niemi against defending champion Los Angeles and followed it up with Stalocks third career shutout.The Sharks joined this years Minnesota Wild team as the first to open the season with consecutive shutouts since Florida did it in 2005-06.Obviously the hard work we put in early on is paying off, and were having a little success early, Stalock said. The penalty kill has been sharp early and thats huge. Second chances, they havent had many, so its been good.Ondrej Pavelec made 23 saves for the Jets, who came out flat following a 6-2 win at Arizona in the season opener on Thursday. Winnipeg was hampered without top line forward Evander Kane, who hurt his knee in the opener.We didnt have a very good start, forward Michael Frolik said. If you can survive the first 10 minutes in this building you can be successful. We didnt do that. We have to learn and then come back with a better start.After spoiling Los Angeles banner-raising ceremony with a win over the Kings on opening night, the Sharks got off to another strong start against the Jets as they try to bounce back after becoming the fourth NHL team to lose a best-of-seven series after winning the first three games.San Jose scored twice in the opening 5:12, with Vlasic getting his first of the season when his point shot deflected off Winnipeg defenceman Mark Stuart and past Pavelec.Then the Sharks capitalized on a pretty transition play with Joe Pavelski sending a pass from his own zone to Thornton at centre ice. Thornton then quickly fed a racing Hertl, who beat Pavelec for his first of the season to make it 2-0.We just, maybe, overcompensated with respect to their speed and gave them five feet of ice, Jets coach Paul Maurice said. We were fearful of getting burned and thats when you get burned.The Sharks outshot the Jets 15-3 in the period and controlled the play throughout the period. San Jose was a bit sloppy after that but Stalock managed to keep Winnipeg off the scoreboard and Marleau capitalized on a misplay for his goal with 29 seconds left in second period.Zach Bogosian had trouble playing Brent Burns clearing attempt at the blue line. Matt Nieto got to the loose puck and sprung Marleau for a breakaway. Marleau beat Pavelec for his second goal in as many games. The Sharks didnt generate another shot on goal in the game.NOTES: Kane will miss at least two weeks after a knee-on-knee collision with teammate Mark Scheifele on Thursday. He will be re-evaluated after that time. ... San Jose F Mike Brown left in the second period after blocking a shot with his hand. Cameron Brate Jersey . Therrien would not confirm his lineup for the game, but he did have the same line combinations practicing together for the third straight day which is usually a pretty good indication of what the lineup will be. Joe Hawley Jersey . -- Theres been so much talk about Mike Moustakas at the plate that the third baseman ignored the conversation Wednesday -- even after doing something positive. http://www.shoptheofficialbuccaneers.com/Elite-Noah-Spence-Buccaneers-Jersey/ . Now, Sarah Burkes legacy will live on in Canadas Sports Hall of Fame. Burke, who tragically died at age 29 from a training accident in 2012, headlined the 2014 class named for induction Wednesday.Randy Carlyle was less than pleased with his teams most recent effort, and he hopes to see a better effort when his Toronto Maple Leafs host the rebuilding Buffalo Sabres in Tuesdays clash at Air Canada Centre. Viewers in the Leafs region can catch the game on TSN4 starting at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt. You can also listen to the game on TSN Radio 1050. Toronto fell to 3-4-1 on the season after losing 4-1 in Saturdays home test against the Boston Bruins. It was the Maple Leafs third loss in four games and dropped the clubs home record this season to 1-4-0. The head coach made sure his feelings were known following another disappointing effort from his troops. Frustration, anger ... that is the two things that were front-and-center from a coaching staffs perspective, Carlyle said. Toronto fell behind 1-0 just 3:27 into the game and the Bruins would build the lead to four goals before Richard Panik finally got the Leafs on the board with 5:33 remaining in the third period. We didnt win too many battles early in the hockey game, said Carlyle. Probably for the first 30 minutes we didnt move our feet and execute. It was like the Bruins had the puck and we struggled to get it back. Jonathan Bernier stopped 21-of-25 shots before being pulled in the third period. Bernier will get the start tonight. Toronto hopes to take advantage of a young Sabres team that is just 2-7-0 on the season and hass been outscored by a 29-11 margin so far in 2014-15. Ryan Fitzpatrick Jersey. Buffalo, however, is coming off a victory, notching a 2-1 road win Saturday in San Jose. The Maple Leafs won three of five meetings against Buffalo last season and has claimed five of the last eight tests in this series. The Sabres have dropped four straight and nine of their past 10 games at Air Canada Centre. Buffalo had been shut out three times during a four-game slide before coming through with Saturdays surprising win over the Sharks. Michal Neuvirth made 29 saves to earn his first win of the season and Nicolas Deslauriers netted the deciding goal early in the third period to help the Sabres win for the first time since Oct. 14 at Carolina. Its a huge win for me and everybody on this team. We worked really hard for this, Neuvirth offered. Cody Hodgson also lit the lamp in the final stanza for the Sabres, who hope to win two straight for the first time since last February when they close out a four-game road trip tonight. Neuvirth will get the start again tonight. He is 1-2-0 with a 3.02 goals against average this season and 5-3-1 with a 2.96 GAA in 11 career games versus Toronto.
