Let's give the San Jose Sharks credit, too. The boys in teal have allowed just two goals in four games thus far, which means that they are the first team to get through their first four games without allowing more than two goals since 1948-49. Wow. #BowDown.

Martin Jones has been flat-out awesome for San Jose this year, but let's give the team some credit as well. The Sharks are off to a fast start thanks to their stingy defense and the red-hot goaltending of Jones. Jones saw his streak of 104 consecutive sves end on Friday in his teams 2-1 shooutout victory over the Devils, but bot before he had broken the franchise record for consecutive saves (104) and took ownership of the Sharks' longest scoreless streak. Jones' streak lasted 234:33
The @SanJoseSharks are 1st team to allow 2 goals or fewer through their first 4 games of a season since DET in 1948-49 (also 2 GA in 4 GP).— NHL Public Relations (@PR_NHL) October 17, 2015
The NHL record for scoreless minutes is 332:01, which was set by Brian Boucher during the 2003-04 season.
Martin Jones shutout streak was snapped at 234:33. He stopped 104 consecutive shots. Both were longest in Sharks history.— Darin Stephens (@SharksStats) October 17, 2015
