The San Jose Sharks and St. Louis Blues meet Thursday in NHL action at the Enterprise Center.
The San Jose Sharks need a win after losing five of they last eight games. The San Jose Sharks are averaging 2.4 goals per game and are scoring on 15.6 percent of their power play opportunities. Logan Couture leads San Jose with seven goals, Evander Kane has six assists and Timo Meier has 45 shots on goal. Defensively, the San Jose Sharks are allowing 3.7 goals per game and are killing 76.9 percent of their opponents power plays. Martin Jones has allowed 35 goals on 276 shots and Devan Dubnyk has allowed 13 goals on 156 shots.
The St. Louis Blues need a win after losing four of their last six games. The St. Louis Blues are averaging 3.4 goals per game and are scoring on 12.5 percent of their power play opportunities. Brayden Schenn leads St. Louis with seven goals, David Perron has 10 assists and Justin Faulk has 41 shots on goal. Defensively, the St. Louis Blues are allowing 3.1 goals per game and are killing 72.1 percent of their opponents power plays. Jordan Binnington has allowed 28 goals on 342 shots and Ville Husso has allowed 16 goals on 128 shots.
The Sharks are 5-12 in their last 17 road games and 0-6 in their last 6 games following a win. The Blues are 1-4 in their last 5 games as a favorite and 1-4 in their last 5 home games. The over is 10-4 in Sharks last 14 road games. The over is 5-1 in Blues last 6 home games. The Sharks are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in St. Louis and 1-6 in the last 7 meetings.
The San Jose Sharks don't string wins together and don't win on the road, so these are spots I have little faith. The St. Louis Blues have won seven of the last nine meetings against the Sharks and are clearly the better team on both sides of the ice. This is a spot the Blues should get back on track and pick up what feels like a rare home victory. I'll lay the PL with the Blues for added betting value.
