NHL Online Betting Odds:
The Penguins slide into this evening’s matchup sporting a 25-14-6 record that nets them 56 points on the season. That 56 point tally ranks Pittsburgh 3rd overall in the Metropolitan Division. Right now the Met is led by the Washington Capitals, who have amassed 59 on the year. With that in mind, it’s clear that the Guins are right in the mix of things atop the Met. However, with the 4th seeded New York Islanders giving Pittsburgh a run for their money with their 54 points, it’s clear that Pittsburgh cannot afford to get stuck in a rut. Having said that, the Guins will need to do all they can to get this road win tonight. Luckily for the Guins, they just happen to be 7-2-1 in their last 10 meetings against the Sharks.
Players to Watch: Sidney Crosby (20 G, 35 A, 55 PTS.), Phil Kessel (18 G, 33 A, 51 PTS.), and Evgeni Malkin (14 G, 36 A, 50 PTS.).
San Jose Sharks
The Sharks swim into this evening’s matchup sporting a 27-13-7 record that grants them 61 points on the year. Entering tonight’s action riding a 6 game winning streak. On top of that, they enter with the 5th best scoring offense in the NHL. Considering that they’ll be playing at home against the 11th best defense in the league, we should expect the Sharks to come out on top here handily.
Players to Watch: Brent Burns (9 G, 43 A, 52 PTS.), Logan Couture (16 G, 26 A, 42 PTS.), and Erik Karlsson (3 G, 38 A, 41 PTS.).
