The San Jose Sharks and St. Louis Blues meet Saturday in NHL action at the Enterprise Center.
The San Jose Sharks need a win after losing six of their last nine games. The San Jose Sharks are averaging 2.4 goals per game and are scoring on 17 percent of their power play opportunities. Logan Couture leads San Jose with seven goals, Evander Kane has six assists and Timo Meier has 50 shots on goal. Defensively, the San Jose Sharks are allowing 3.6 goals per game and are killing 77.4 percent of their opponents power plays. Martin Jones has allowed 38 goals on 321 shots and Devan Dubnyk has allowed 13 goals on 156 shots.
The St. Louis Blues look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The St. Louis Blues are averaging 3.2 goals per game and are scoring on 12 percent of their power play opportunities. Brayden Schenn leads St. Louis with eight goals, David Perron has 12 assists and Justin Faulk has 43 shots on goal. Defensively, the St. Louis Blues are allowing 2.9 goals per game and are killing 73.8 percent of their opponents power plays. Jordan Binnington has allowed 30 goals on 374 shots and Ville Husso has allowed 16 goals on 128 shots.
The Sharks are 5-13 in their last 18 road games and 6-13 in their last 19 overall. The Blues are 4-11 in their last 15 home games and 4-1 in their last 5 Saturday games. The over is 10-4 in Sharks last 14 road games. The over is 9-3 in Blues last 12 home games. The Sharks are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in St. Louis and 1-7 in the last 8 meetings.
The San Jose Sharks have been horrible on the road dating back to last season and an overtime loss to the Sharks a couple days ago doesn't help the confidence. The St. Louis Blues have been hit or miss lately, but we should all know consistency and a winning streak is coming. Once the Blues tighten things up defensively, they'll be in good shape. The Sharks are going to have a hard time with the way they're playing. I'll take the Blues and the PL for max betting value.
