Jones stopped 20 of 24 shots in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Avalanche. Jones has now dropped two straight starts after a three-game winning streak. The 30-year-old goalie fell to 17-21-2 with a 3.00 GAA and an .896 save percentage in 41 outings. Head coach Bob Boughner may turn to Aaron Dell for Wednesday's road game in Chicago given Jones' recent struggles.
Jones will patrol the crease for Sunday's home contest against the Avalanche. Jones has been on fire over the last few weeks, going 4-3-0 with a 1.72 GAA and .939 save percentage since Feb. 15., including a pair of shutouts. The 30-year-old netminder's season save percentage is still just under .900, and a matchup against the Avalanche on Sunday will provide a tough test to keep the momentum rolling.
Jones surrendered three goals on 27 shots in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Wild. Jones' personal three-game winning streak came to a close Thursday. The 30-year-old goalie dropped to 17-20-2 with a 2.97 GAA and an .898 save percentage in 40 appearances. Jones still hasn't allowed more than three goals in his last seven starts -- those solid numbers should keep him in position to get most of the games down the stretch.
Jones will tend the twine against the Wild at home Thursday, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports. Jones is riding a three-game winning streak in which he has registered a 1.33 GAA and .950 save percentage. While the 29-year-old netminder could still reach the 20-win mark, he won't get to 30 for the first time since joining the Sharks prior to the 2015-16 campaign.
Jones stopped 25 of 27 shots in a 5-2 win over the Maple Leafs on Tuesday. All of a sudden, Jones has the hot hand in San Jose -- he's won three straight games with just four goals allowed on 80 shots in that span. The 30-year-old goalie improved to 17-19-2 with a 2.97 GAA and an .898 save percentage through 39 appearances. If he keeps producing positive results, Jones could see the bulk of the work down the stretch.
