Having overcome Calgary after a shootout, the Vancouver Canucks (4th in Pacific Division) are taking on the San Jose Sharks (2nd in Pacific), who have banked five straight victories…

Sharks Win Fifth Straight

The current four-date Canada road trip of the San Jose Sharks (33-16-7) went a perfect 3-0-0 following the first three contests after the team banked a 5-2 victory against the Edmonton Oilers at Rogers Place on Saturday. Kevin Labanc (9 goals, 36 points this year) bagged his first NHL hat trick, with Joe Thornton (10 goals, 29 points) providing two helpers to tie Gordie Howe (1,049) for the 9th place on the all-time assists list, as the Men of Teal won for the fifth consecutive time after losing three straight games prior (0-3-0). They are 2nd in the Pacific Division with 73 points from 56 outings.

Goalie Aaron Dell made 21 saves in Edmonton, taking his current performance status to 7-6-3 for the season with a 3.04 GAA and a .892 save percentage. He is a perfect 5-0-0 versus Vancouver previously with a 1.59 GAA and a .946 save percentage, while Martin Jones (26-10-4 on the year with a 2.90 GAA and a .899 save percentage) has picked up a 7-1-1 career tally against the Canucks with a 1.66 GAA and a .949 save percentage. The Sharks, meanwhile, are 3rd in most goals scored per game (3.63), 13th in most goals conceded on average (3.07), 5th in power play (24.6%) and 8th in penalty kill (82.1%).

‘Nucks Beat Flames In Shootout

The Vancouver Canucks (25-24-7) ended a three-game losing run (0-2-1) after beating the Calgary Flames 4-3 after a shootout at Rogers Arena on Saturday. Elias Pettersson (25 goals, 50 points this year) was the star of the show, notching the only snipe of the skills competition after providing a couple of assists in regulation. The ‘Nucks have now collected points in two straight games (1-0-1) and are 5-3-2 in their last 10 fixtures following a three-game skid prior (0-2-1). They are 4th in the Pacific Division with 57 points from 56 outings, trailing a playoff spot in the Western Conference by mere two points.

Goalie Jacob Markstrom made 44 saves throughout regulation and overtime, stopping all three attempts of the shootout subsequently to take his current performance status to 21-15-6 for the rolling year with a 2.81 GAA and a .910 save percentage. He has posted a 2-4-1 past tally against the San Jose Sharks with a 3.74 GAA and a .882 save percentage. The Canucks, meanwhile, are netting the 10th lowest number of goals per game (2.86), while giving up the 16th highest quantity defensively (3.05). They are 25th in power play with a 16.3% conversion rate and 19th in penalty kill with 79.5% efficiency.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet

The Sharks have an excellent previous record against the Canucks, having won 10 of the last 11 overall contests, including the very last four encounters. And it does look like continuing in favor of San Jose, who have already banked four straight road contests, are 4-0 in their very last four meetings with the Western Conference and have picked up nine victories in their past 10 fixtures after allowing no more than two snipes in their previous fixture. The ‘Nucks, on the other hand, are still looking for consistency, having won just one of their last six outings following a win.

Prediction: San Jose Sharks

Full-Game Total Pick

This series has not really delivered a high amount of goals, going below the seven-strike mark on 14 of the past 17 occasions. So, expect this matchup to finish within six goals as well. The Canucks have already gone under the total in seven of their last eight outings following a win, with seven of their past nine games also delivering a modest amount of markers.

Prediction: Under 6.5
