Edmonton Oilers vs. San Jose Sharks

Where: SAP Center

When: Tuesday, November 19, 2019, 10:30 pm ET

We have a Western Conference Pacific Division game to consider when the Edmonton Oilers meet the San Jose Sharks for game two of their four-game season series. Edmonton leads the Pacific Division with 29 points and lost to the Sharks by a score of 6-3 in their previous meeting. San Jose is seventh in the division with 21 points and looks to win their second game in as many attempts this season against Edmonton.

Edmonton Looking to Avenge Loss to Sharks

Edmonton has won three of its past five games and has outscored its opponents 23-15 over those five contests, and it seems like the Oilers were a couple of bad bounces away from winning each of those five games. The Oilers did allow a shade over the 2.73 goals they usually allow, and maybe tightening up a few things is what this club needs. Center Leon Draisaitl leads the Oilers with 43 points, including a club-high 16 goals along with a team-leading 27 assists this season.

The Oilers power-play unit is the best in hockey, and scoring on 31 percent of its power plays is no joke. The penalty kill unit ranks third in the National Hockey League with an 87.7 percent penalty kill rate this season.

Mike Smith is expected to tend the twine against the Sharks, and he’s 6-5-1 with a 2.53 goals-against average and a 91.5 percent save percentage along with one shutout this season. Smith stopped 31 of 33 shots in his last start on Thursday night in a 6-2 home win over the Colorado Avalanche.

Sharks Six Game Winning Streak

San Jose enters this matchup riding a six-game winning streak and has outscored its opponents 21-17 over the last five games. The goals allowed are who the Sharks are this season, but the goals scored are more than its 2.90 goals they average this season. That’s a good thing for the Sharks and a bad thing for everyone else. Thomas Hertl leads San Jose with 21 points, Evander Kane has a club-high 12 goals with seven of those goals coming on the power play, and Logan Couture leads the Sharks with 18 assists this season.

The Sharks have an above-average, 21.4 percent power-play success rate with a 90 percent penalty kill rate that happens to be the best in the NHL this season.

Martin Jones is the probable starter for the Sharks on Tuesday night, and he’s 8-7-1 this season with a 3.23 GAA and 88 percent save percentage. Jones is 5-0 over the past five starts and allowed three goals on 28 shots in a 4-3 Saturday night shootout win over the Detroit Red Wings

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

San Jose has won six straight and is playing great hockey right now, whereas Edmonton is just playing outstanding hockey. The Sharks have a long way to go to get to the top of the division and knocking off Edmonton like they did earlier this season. This should be a close, low scoring game featuring not only two of the best penalty kill units in the NHL but active power-play units, and I expect San Jose to come out on top in this one.

Prediction: San Jose

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

These two goaltenders have been solid and the Sharks are playing exceptional hockey on both ends of the pond. Two super power-play units are featured here but the penalty kill units are better and that will keep the score down. This being a divisional game is going to increase the physicality and that also will help to keep the score down. I will be playing the UNDER in this game.

Prediction: Under 6.5
