San Jose Sharks          

The Sharks are feeling pretty confident about their chances tonight seeing as how they’re 7-3 in their last 10 games against the Avalanche. Additionally, San Jose delivered a decisive victory in Game 1 5-2. Although they fell in Game 2 4-3, those results were not nearly as lopsided. With this in mind, it’s clear that San Jose is the tougher team here. However, can we count on San Jose to get the win on the road here? After all, San Jose went 1-2 on the road against Vegas in their opening series. Additionally, most of San Jose’s losses this past season came on the road. Naturally tonight’s odds are pegging San Jose as the underdog here and bettors should avoid backing the Sharks as well.

Players to Watch: Brent Burns (4 G, 7 A, 11 PTS), Erik Karlsson (0 G, 10 A, 10 PTS), and Tomas Hertl (6 G, 4 A, 10 PTS).

Colorado Avalanche   

The Avalanche have won the last 8 at the Pepsi Center and are confident they can get the 9th tonight. But if Colorado is to make a home stand tonight, they’ll have to find a way to stop Brent Burns. In Game 1 Burns led the Sharks to a win with his 4-point performance. Game 2 saw Colorado limit Burns to a lone assist and subsequently saw Colorado come out on top. So if the Avalanche are to take the lead at home this evening, it will have to be by stopping Burns.

Players to Watch: Nathan MacKinnon (4 G, 7 A, 11 PTS), Mikko Rantanen (5 G, 6 A, 11 PTS), and Tyson Barrie (1 G, 7 A, 8 PTS).
