Sharks' Mackenzie Blackwood: Falls to New York
Blackwood allowed six goals on 36 shots in Sunday's 6-5 loss to the Rangers.
It was a tough night for Blackwood, who surrendered three goals in the first period en route to a 6-5 loss. The 26-year-old Blackwood had been sharp coming into Sunday's outing, stopping 61 of 71 shots in his previous two starts. Overall, he's now 3-11-2 with an .899 save percentage on the season. While Blackwood should continue to serve as San Jose's primary starter over Kaapo Kahkonen, he's hard to trust as a fantasy option behind a last-place Sharks team.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Mackenzie Blackwood: Set to face Rangers

Sharks' Mackenzie Blackwood: Gets no help Thursday
Blackwood made 34 saves in Thursday's 3-0 loss to Boston.
The former Devil played well and kept the Bruins off the board until the second period, but once Danton Heinen took advantage of a San Jose giveaway early in the frame to wire a one-timer past Blackwood, the game was effectively over. The 26-year-old netminder has just one win in his last seven appearances, going 1-4-1, but his 3.00 GAA and .909 save percentage are respectable given the quality of the Sharks lineup in front of him....

Sharks' Mackenzie Blackwood: Makes 33 saves in win
Blackwood stopped 33 of 34 shots in Monday's 2-1 win over the Capitals.
In a battle of the league's two lowest-scoring teams, it was no surprise this game was played on tight margins. Blackwood got the job done with a strong performance despite the Sharks getting outshot 34-23. This victory snapped a five-game winless stretch for the 26-year-old, who is now at 3-9-2 with a 3.60 GAA and a .902 save percentage through 16 appearances this season. The Sharks set out on a road trip over the next week, with the first stop in Boston on Thursday, though it's possible head coach David Quinn saves Blackwood for Friday's game against New Jersey, his former team....

Sharks' Mackenzie Blackwood: Strong but little to show for it
Blackwood made 22 saves in a 3-2 shootout loss to Montreal on Friday.
It was nice to see Blackwood help secure at least one point from the game. His last win was Nov. 9 against Edmonton. The Sharks are all but destined to land in last place at season's end, so Blackwood's numbers will be difficult to swallow from a fantasy perspective. Consider him a favorable matchups guy only....

Sharks' Mackenzie Blackwood: Facing Canadiens
Blackwood will be between the home pipes versus Montreal on Friday, according to Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now.
Blackwood is 2-9-1 with a 3.97 GAA and an .896 save percentage - the Sharks are the worst defensive team in the NHL. He has lost his last three starts and has given up 14 goals on 124 shots in his last four appearances. The Canadiens are 23rd in scoring, averaging 2.89 goals per contest.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Mackenzie Blackwood: Plays two periods in relief
Blackwood allowed three goals on 13 shots in relief of Kaapo Kahkonen in Wednesday's 7-1 loss to the Kraken.
Kahkonen was overwhelmed early in the first period. Blackwood didn't fare much better over the final 40 minutes, but the Kraken let off the pace a bit as the game progressed. Through 14 outings, Blackwood has a 2-9-1 record with a 3.97 GAA and an .896 save percentage. He remains the Sharks' primary starter, but he's only a solid fantasy option in formats that heavily reward saves and shots against without punishing losses and goals against too much. Both Blackwood and Kahkonen should get chances to start when the Sharks host the Canadiens on Friday and the Canucks on Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Mackenzie Blackwood: Solid in Monday's loss
Blackwood surrendered three goals on 37 shots in Monday's 3-1 loss to the Canucks.
Blackwood took his third straight loss, but he at least kept the Sharks competitive in this one. The Canucks didn't score until 13:07 of the second period, but they added a shorthanded goal late in that frame and an insurance tally in the third. The loss drops Blackwood to 2-9-1 with a 3.94 GAA and a .900 save percentage over 13 appearances. The Sharks wrap up their brief two-game road trip in Seattle on Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Mackenzie Blackwood: Tending twine versus Canucks
Blackwood will patrol the crease on the road against Vancouver on Monday, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.
It was a disastrous outing for Blackwood the last time he faced the Canucks, giving up four goals on 14 shots (.714 save percentage) after replacing Kaapo Kahkonen. After a brief turnaround in which he put together back-to-back wins versus the Flyers and Oilers, Blackwood seems to be struggling again, allowing four goals in each of his last two contests. It figures to be a long season for both Blackwood and Kahkonen given the limited supporting cast in San Jose.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Mackenzie Blackwood: Lets lead slip away
Blackwood allowed four goals on 31 shots in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Panthers. The fifth goal was an empty-netter.

Blackwood has won his last two starts, making an impressive 77 saves on 80 shots in that span. Overall, the 26-year-old Blackwood is 2-6-1 with an .899 save percentage this season. He'll face an Anaheim team that's scored just three goals in its last two games.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Mackenzie Blackwood: Stands tall in win
Blackwood stopped 39 of 41 shots in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Oilers.
The Sharks got two-point efforts from Tomas Hertl and Fabian Zetterlund, but Blackwood was the biggest reason they won. The 26-year-old netminder has won his last two starts, allowing just three goals on 80 shots in that span. He's now at 2-6-1 with a 4.00 GAA and an .899 save percentage through 10 appearances. Blackwood will likely face a ton of pucks when he plays, but he's shown flashes of being able to steal a result on occasion. He'll likely get some rest while serving as the backup for Friday's game in Vegas.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Mackenzie Blackwood: Exits ice first
Blackwood was the first goalie to leave the ice Thursday, Max Miller of The Hockey News reports, indicating he'll be in goal at home versus Edmonton.
Blackwood will be making his fifth straight appearance between the pipes for the Sharks, having gone 1-2-0 with a 4.33 GAA in his last four outings. Collectively, Blackwood and Kaapo Kahkonen have managed just one win this season, so fantasy players will probably want to pursue alternative netminding options.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Mackenzie Blackwood: Steps up to earn first win
Blackwood stopped 38 of 39 shots in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Flyers.
Blackwood was able to get the Sharks their first win of the season, though he needed an elite performance to do so. He limited the damage to a Joel Farabee goal late in the second period, which Blackwood nearly kept out. The 26-year-old goalie is now at a 1-6-1 record with a 4.27 GAA and an .892 save percentage through nine games. Despite those terrible numbers, he's still the Sharks' best option between the pipes. They're back in action Thursday at home versus the struggling Oilers.... See More ... See Less
