San Jose Sharks          

Logan Couture - San Jose Sharks vs. Colorado AvalancheThe Sharks are facing some interesting NHL hockey betting odds this evening. By the looks of it, the odds-makers don’t think San Jose deserves to get pegged as the underdog here. However, they’re still favoring Colorado at the end of the day. All things considered, San Jose struggled a bit on the road this past season, seeing as how they were 23-19-4 during their away games. However, Colorado is far from unbeatable at home as their 24-15-6 makes perfectly clear. If San Jose is to win here, they’ll need Tomas Hertl to deliver another eye-catching performance. Hertl recorded his second multi-goal performance of the 2019 Stanley Cup playoffs in Game 5 of this series. In doing so, Hertl paved the way for San Jose’s 3rd win of this series. If he can deliver a similar performance on the road, San Jose will undoubtedly be closing this series out tonight.

Players to Watch: Logan Couture (9 G, 4 A, 13 PTS.), Tomas Hertl (8 G, 4 A, 12 PTS.), and Brent Burns (4 G, 7 A, 11 PTS.).

Colorado Avalanche   

Nathan MacKinnon - San Jose Sharks vs. Colorado AvalancheThe Avalanche are up against a wall here. But at the very least, Colorado gets the benefit of trying to avoid elimination at home. One thing that undoubtedly led to their loss in Game  5 was Nathan Mackinnon’s lack of point contribution. MacKinnon had a decent streak going up until that point but in the end his failure to show up now has Colorado facing elimination.

Players to Watch: Nathan MacKinnon (6 G, 7 A, 13 PTS.), Mikko Rantanen (5 G, 8 A, 13 PTS.), and Tyson Barrie (1 G, 7 A, 8 PTS.).
