San Jose Sharks

Although they’ve built up a decent lead over the 4th seeded Anaheim Ducks, the Sharks can still vie for the No. 1 spot in the division.

This is to be expected, given that the Sharks are 3-6-1 in their last 10 versus Vegas
Players to Watch: Brent Burns (8 G, 41 A, 49 PTS.), Logan Couture (16 G, 26 A, 42 PTS.), and Erik Karlsson (3 G, 38 A, 41 PTS.).

Interestingly enough, it’s an all-around decent matchup. The Sharks come in with a better offense but a weaker defense. They currently rank 4th in scoring and 18th in defense. On the other hand, Vegas ranks 13th in scoring and 3rd in defense. This should make for some great hockey this evening.
