(TSX / STATS) -- NEWARK, NJ -- The visiting San Jose Sharks looked fresh and fast while the host New Jersey Devils appeared tired and a bit sluggish Friday night at the Prudential Center. The result backed that up as the Sharks shut out the Devils 3-0.

The previous evening, the Devils (6-2-0) rallied for a 5-4 overtime victory over the Senators before flying home from Ottawa. The Sharks (3-3-0), meanwhile, were resting in New Jersey, helping to explain Friday's narrative.

Martin Jones stopped all 28 shots he faced for San Jose to earn his 16th career shutout. As good as he was, Jones was also somewhat lucky as three shot attempts by the Devils struck iron, including a short-handed attempt by Adam Henrique that hit the post 6:20 into the second period when the score was still 2-0.
