Post Game Notes: Flames @ Sharks
San Jose 6 - Calgary 3
3/23/11 - By Mike Lee -

» Dany Heatley returned from his two-game suspension. His only presence on the score sheet was his boarding penalty in the 1st period.

» Logan Couture logged 17+ minutes of ice time even though it was questionable if he would even play after suffering his lower body injury last Saturday night. The four days between games allowed the rookie forward to rest up between games.

» With his assist on Torrey Mitchell's goal, Joe Thornton now has 689 points which puts him at 54th place on the NHL's All-Time Points List.

» Marleau joined an illustrious club on Wednesday night , scoring 350 goals and 400 assists, all with the same team.

» The 4-goal 1st period tied a season-high for a period (3rd period 3/15 at Dallas)

» Ten different Sharks recorded points in the 1st period. 13 San Jose players recorded points on the night.

» Torrey Mitchell: four goals in his first 51 games. 5 goals in his last 7 games.

» And now the division-fest begins. The Sharks wrap up the regular season with 8 games against Pacific Division foes. 2 vs LA, 1 vs Dallas, 2 vs Anaheim and three vs Phoenix. 4 games one the road, 4 at home.

» San Jose owned the faceoff circle again, taking 48 of 76 draws (63%). Joe Pavelski won 18 of 23 faceoffs (78%). Another monster night for the Big Pavelski.

» In addition to his goal, Andrew Jardins recorded a hit and a blocked shot in his limited stint on the ice. The rookie saw the fewest minutes, but made the most of them.

» The one black spot on the Sharks performance was the penalty kill, which failed to shut down the Flames. Luckily San Jose played a disciplined game, and limited their trips to the sin bin. Heatley provided the only Calgary power play with his boarding penalty.
