    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Collects a pair of points in win

    Thornton tallied a goal and an assist in Sunday's Game 2 win over the Predators. Thornton's goal came on an empty net to make the score 3-1, which ultimately proved to be crucial as Nashville struck again in the closing seconds. The 36-year-old, who is now up to five points through seven postseason games, figures to continue being a key cog in the Sharks offense for as long as they advance.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Goal not enough in loss

    Thornton potted the team's lone goal in Monday's loss to the Kings. Thornton got San Jose on the board just 30 seconds into the contest, but he and his mates were unable to solve Jonathan Quick the rest of the way, as the Sharks ultimately fell in overtime. He's tallied a pair of points through three games in the series and figures to continue factoring into much of the club's offense going forward.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Finishing off regular season in strong fashion

    Thornton netted a power-play goal and also picked up an assist in Thursday night's 5-4 loss to the Jets. Thornton may be 36 years old, but he's played in every game this season and is averaging a point per contest. With his 62 assists being the most of any forward, Thornton has rediscovered his magic with the coaching change from Todd McLellan to Peter DeBoer. His huge season made for serious fantasy hockey implications, but it will be an afterthought to Sharks fans unless Jumbo Joe can help his team finally grab hold of the Stanley Cup hardware.

Thornton continues to feast as the regular season comes to a close, notching a power-play goal and six helpers -- two on the man advantage -- in his current streak. The 36-year-old veteran has two games left on the schedule to reach 80 points for the year, a feat the 1997 No. 1 pick has reached six times in his career.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Piles in two helpers

    Thornton assisted on both of Tomas Hertl's goals and added two hits in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over the Predators. At this point in the season, it may be time to sit both Thornton and Jaromir Jagr in the same room and question them about the fountain of youth. The 36-year-old has erupted for 78 points this year, sweetening the deal with a plus-26 rating. The 1997 No. 1 pick reaches the scoresheet on the regular, and has done so in four straight to the tune of a power-play goal and five apples.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Back on scoresheet with two more helpers

    Thornton handed out his 54th and 55th assists of the season -- both on the power play -- in Thursday's 6-3 loss to Edmonton. Whatever the 36-year-old Thornton is eating for breakfast, we want some -- after all, he's on nearly a point-per-game pace with 72 in 74, rolling up stats with incredible consistency. Amazingly, he hasn't gone more than one game without a point since he was kept quiet Dec. 9 and 12. In 45 games since then, Thornton has the eye-popping stat line of 13 goals, 56 points and a plus-22 rating. He really must be eating some supercharged Wheaties.
