Martin Jones was severely outplayed by Ducks net minder John Gibson. He let a goal in on the Ducks first shot of the game, and was also got caught sleeping on a Brandon Montour backhand. Jones faced 15 shots overall and only encountered 15 scoring chances during the entire game.
I would not worry about his performance. Goalies are strange individuals and Jones doesn’t veer away from that stereotype. He’s a quiet guy and doesn’t show much emotion on or off the ice. This laid back attitude is extremely comforting for the other guys on the ice. Jones has experienced some volatile moments during his tenure as Sharks goalie, but the man has been in some big spots and usually comes up big.
Jones is still getting used to a newly composed defensive pairing in front of him. The addition of EK65 makes the defense much better but it might take some time to work out the kinks. But still don’t be surprised if the coach Pete DeBoer has Martin Jones on a short leash. Luckily the Sharks have a very competent back up in Aaron Dell.
