Whose net is it?

Cecil Whig - - ATHLON SPORTS -

The San Jose Sharks dealt a first-round pick for Martin Jones and made him their start­ing goal­tender. Jones has done the job, play­ing 63 games and win­ning 36 with a .918 save per­cent­age. But he may find him­self on the bench for the playoffs. James Reimer, ac­quired from Toronto at the trade dead­line as in­sur­ance, is 6–2–0 with the Sharks, al­low­ing just 1.62 goals per game and sport­ing a .938 save per­cent­age. Jones hasn’t been bad of late (.927 save per­cent­age in March), but he has won just five of his last 10 starts. Reimer has just one se­ries of play­off ex­pe­ri­ence, but that’s one more than Jones. Don’t be sur­prised if the Sharks ride the hot hand.
