San Jose Sharks        

The Sharks swim into this evening’s contest sporting a 28-16-7 record that nets them 63 points on the season. Notwithstanding their current losing streak, San Jose is still ranked 2nd in the Pacific Division. Right now the Pacific is led by the Calgary Flames who have racked up 69 this season. With that in mind, it’s clear that San Jose is starting to fall behind the divisional leader. Although they’re not at risked of losing their top 3 ranking, San Jose will need a turnaround in the coming days. By the looks of it, tonight’s NHL hockey betting odds don’t think the Sharks will get that turnaround this evening. But since San Jose is 6-2-2 in their last 10 against Washington, some bettors will undoubtedly take a chance on San Jose tonight.

Players to Watch: Brent Burns (9 G, 44 A, 53 PTS.), Logan Couture (18 G, 26 A, 44 PTS.), and Timo Meier (19 G, 25 A, 44 PTS.). 

Washington Capitals 

The Caps slide into this evening’s contest sporting a 27-16-5 record that nets them 59 on the season. At the current moment, 59 points is good enough to rank Washington No. 3 overall in the Metropolitan. However, seeing as how the 4th seeded Pittsburgh Pirates are sitting on 58 points this season, it’s clear that Washington cannot afford a loss this evening. Fortunately for Washington, they’ll be playing at home against a San Jose team that hasn’t had much luck on the road as of late. However, to win this matchup, Washington will have to find a way to contain San Jose’s 3rd ranked offense. While Washington ranks 8th in scoring, their defense ranks 21st overall.

Players to Watch: Alex Ovechkin (33 G, 19 A, 52 PTS.), Nicklas Backstrom (12 G, 35 A, 47 PTS.), and John Carlson (8 G, 37 A, 45 PTS.).
