  • Sharks' Joe Thornton: Bags two helpers in Game 3 win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/5/16) Thornton collected two assists in Saturday's Game 3 overtime win over the Penguins.

    They were the first two points of the series for Thornton, who helped the Sharks win their first ever game in the Stanley Cup Finals. The veteran was active all game, firing four shots on goal and looking dangerous on the top line with Joe Pavelski. Thornton now has 20 points in 21 games this postseason and will need to build off this outing if the Sharks hope to claw back and win the series.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Earns three assists in Game 5 win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/23/16) Thornton dished out a trio of assists in Monday's 6-3 win over the Blues in Game 5.

    After being held off the scoresheet in Games 1 and 2 against St. Louis, Jumbo Joe has piled up six apples in the last three contests. The 36-year-old has scored at exactly a point-per-game clip this postseason (17 in 17), and while it's hard to consider that type of production "secondary scoring", Thornton has provided a veteran, big-body presence behind leading scorers Joe Pavelski and Logan Couture. Also, only seven of his 17 points have come on the power play, showing just how effective he's been at even strength against L.A., Nashville and St. Louis.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Helps two during Game 3 win at home

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/19/16) Thornton registered two helpers and a plus-2 rating during Thursday's 3-0 win over the Blues in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals.

    Well, it looks like Thornton's hand is just fine. The 36-year-old broke out of his two-game cold streak, earning his fourth multi-point outing of the playoffs. The 1997 No. 1 pick has three goals and 10 helpers in the postseason, and it seems as though the top line figured out Brian Elliott in Game 3 (the netminder was benched in the third period). Thornton, Joe Pavelski and Tomas Hertl each notched two points and will look for more in Saturday's crucial Game 4.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Hand injury no concern heading into Game 3

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/19/16) Thornton sustained a hand injury against the Blues on Tuesday, though it won't be enough to keep him out of Thursday's Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals , Curtis Pashelka of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Thornton was slashed on his left hand, but the ailment did not cause him to leave Game 2. Jumbo Joe further proved that he's ready for the upcoming contest as he was able to grip his stick without issue at the Thursday morning skate. Thornton owners are craving offense from the veteran as he's gone pointless through two games against the Blues in the conference finals after blowing up in the quarterfinals, hanging two goals and eight points on the Predators.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Two power-play points in Game 7 win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/12/16) Thornton registered a tally and a helper -- both on the power play -- during Thursday's 5-0 victory against the Predators in Game 7.

    As expected, Thornton's 82-point regular season has carried over to the playoffs, as the 36-year-old owns three goals and eight apples in 12 games so far. The veteran finished out the series by reaching the scoresheet in four straight, which also includes a power-play helper in each outing. Expect Thornton to continue his solid postseason against the St. Louis Blues in the Western Conference Finals.
