Jones will be between the pipes for Thursday's home clash with Dallas, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports. Jones is 0-2-0 in his matchups with the Stars this season, while posting an .865 save percentage and 3.62 GAA. Considering the Sharks are allowing a mere 29.0 shot per game (fifth-fewest in the league), it could be another light workload for the netminder.
Jones made 21 saves for a 5-2 home win over the Devils on Monday. This was Jones' third win between five December starts. The Sharks ended up with a plus-10 shot differential and captain Joe Pavelski -- with a goal and an assist -- was among 10 players dressed in teal to have supported the sixth-year goalie with at least one point in this convincing victory. Jones suffered a loss to the Devils in New Jersey on Oct. 14, but it was a completely different story at the Shark Tank.
Jones will be in net for Monday's game against New Jersey. Jones has had an up and down season in 2018-19, posting an 11-7-3 record in 21 starts, as well as a 2.91 GAA and .900 save percentage. The Sharks' netminder keeps following up a good start with a bad one, unable to string together multiple good performances in a row. Fortunately, Monday's matchup has Jones facing the Devils who have just one win in their last eight games. Start the 28-year-old with confidence.
Jones stopped 27 of 30 shots in Friday's 3-2 road loss to the Stars. After a couple of strong performances, Jones took another step backwards. The 28-year-old has given up at least three goals in six of his last eight starts and 12 of his last 15, saddling him with a mediocre 2.91 GAA and .900 save percentage on the season.
Jones will guard the cage in Friday's road game against the Stars, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports. Jones has been razor sharp recently, picking up back-to-back wins over the Canadiens and Hurricanes while posting a superb 1.00 GAA and .975 save percentage over that span. The 28-year-old netminder will look to stay dialed in and secure his 12th victory of the season in a tough road matchup with a hot Dallas team that's won three consecutive games.
