Stalock turned aside 28 of 31 shots in Sunday's win over the Blue Jackets. It was just the fourth start of the season for Stalock, but despite the win he continues to put up just middling numbers when called upon (.896 save percentage, 2.88 GAA). He got the nod on the second end of a back-to-back set, but Martin Jones figures to continue getting the bulk of the starts.
Stalock will start between the pipes Sunday against the Blue Jackets, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports. Stalock's presence in net Sunday shouldn't come as much of a surprise given that the Sharks are in the second game of a back-to-back set and Martin Jones started Saturday. Stalock hasn't been great in his five appearances this season, posting a 2.86 GAA and .894 save percentage. He'll face a tough task Sunday against a Blue Jackets club that turned the corner recently and has now won four of it's last five games.
After relieving Martin Jones in Tuesday's loss, Stalock will get the start on Thursday, reports CSN Bay Area's Kevin Kurz. Stalock has a .847 through three appearances this season. It's not great, which makes Thursday's start a bit surprising.
Stalock was sent between the pipes in relief of a struggling Martin Jones on Tuesday night against Columbus. He played out the third period and set aside the two shots that came his way. Stalock entered the contest with a 4-2 deficit and the Sharks were unable to reverse course offensively after the 28-year-old came on in relief for the first time this season. Stalock remains the clear backup goalie to Jones, with his 3.94 GAA and .847 percentage after three appearances looking quite suspect, even as a spot starter.
Stalock stopped just 20 of 24 shots in Saturday's loss to the Stars for an .833 save percentage. Stalock isn't doing much to wrestle the starting spot away from Martin Jones. In the two starts he's been given, he has posted an .848 and an .833 save percentage. It's just not good enough for him to keep getting work with any regularity if Jones continues to play well.
