Ottawa Senators vs San Jose Sharks

Where: SAP Center, San Jose, California

When: Saturday, January 12, 2019 10:00 pm Eastern

We have a National Hockey League contest Saturday between the Ottawa Senators and the San Jose Sharks. Ottawa has won two consecutive games and San Jose has won five straight games. This should be a great NHL game on Saturday night.

Ottawa Has Won Two Straight Games!

Ottawa seems to have risen from the ashes, winning two straight and playing with confidence. Ottawa went into Los Angeles a heavy underdog and skated out of STAPLES Center with a 4-1 victory over the Kings. Chris Tierney scored a pair of goals and Bobby Ryan and Christian Wolanin each tallied lone goals for the Senators and Anders Nilsson stopped 33 of the 34 shots he faced for his fifth victory of the season.

Ottawa has a full injury report for Saturday game with San Jose.

Nilsson has been confirmed as the Sens starting goaltender for Saturday night. Nilsson is 5-10-1 this season with 2.90 goals against average and 90 percent save percentage this season.

Ottawa is tenth in the NHL this season in goals scored (3.16) and Mark Stone leads the club with 20 goals and leads Ottawa in points with 48. The Senators are ninth on the power play with a 21 percent success rate, thirty first in goals allowed (3.87) and twenty ninth on the penalty kill with a 74 percent success rate this season.

San Jose Has Won Five Straight Games!!

San Jose is just skating right along and have won five consecutive games including a HUGE road win over the Las Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday night. Joonas Donskoi, Tomas Hertl and  Melker Karlsson each tallied lone goals and Martin Jones stopped 36 of the 38 shots he faced for his twentieth victory of the season.  

San Jose has no significant injuries listed on their injury report for their game with Ottawa.

Jones is penciled in to patrol the crease for Saturday night. Jones is 20-8-4 this season with 2.80 goals against average and 90 percent save percentage. Jones has one shutout to his credit and has a 66 percent shootout save percentage this season.

The Sharks rank fourth in goals scored (3.54) and Joe Pavelski leads the team with 25 goals and Brent Burns leads the Sharks with fifty points. The Sharks 24 percent success rate on the power play is fourth in the NHL and the Sharks penalty kill unit ranks sixth with a 83.9 percent success rate. San Jose has a tough time keeping the puck out of the net and ranks eighteenth in the NHL with 2.98 goals allowed per contest.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

That’s a pretty hefty price to pay, and one I won’t be paying. I would love to play the Senators, but I don’t trust them against a Sharks team that knows how to score goals. Ottawa knows how to light the lamp, but Jones is a good goaltender and he knows how to stop the puck. If I had to bet, I would play the Sharks.

Prediction: San Jose -310

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

I have a game score worked out that says the Sharks are going to win this game 4-3. I don’t see Jones allowing more than that but I do see Nilsson coughing up at least four goals on Saturday night. I’m playing the over in this game.

Prediction: Over 6.5 Goals
