Vegas Golden Knights vs San Jose Sharks 05/12/2021 Betting Odds:
Vegas Golden Knights
The job for the Golden Knights is to secure a W in San Jose and hope that the Avalanche fail to sweep the Los Angeles Kings in order to finally bag the West Division title for the third time in four seasons and earn their first Presidents’ Trophy. Vegas was left frustrated after Monday’s game. What was supposed to be a scheduled celebration at the T-Mobile Arena turned into an instant agony after the Avalanche – the team’s fiercest rivals in the race this season – pulled off a crucial win. Bad end game execution turned out to be the culprit for the loss, something that the team vows to address against the Sharks.
Players to watch: M. Stone RW (G 21 A 40 PTS 61), M. Pacioretty LW (G 24 A 27 PTS 51), J. Marchessault C (G 17 A 25 PTS 42).
San Jose Sharks
Seventh in the division with no more further games to be played, the Sharks are looking for one final upset before entering their break. The final stretch of San Jose’s regular season was not pleasing, to say the least. They will enter the game against the much-favored Golden Knights as losers of five games in their last seven outings and holders of a dismal 11-12-4 home record. With a benefit of rest before Wednesday’s match, the Sharks are just hoping to take a more favorable result this time; however, they have to do it sans injured captain Logan Couture. Despite the series of losses, coach Bob Boughner still lauded his team, particularly his players’ gallant fight on Saturday that just fell short against Arizona, 5-4, in OT.
Players to watch: E. Kane LW (G 22 A 27 PTS 49), T. Hertl C (G 19 A 24 PTS 43), T. Meier RW (G 12 A 19 PTS 31).
