The San Jose Sharks and Vegas Golden Knights meet Monday in NHL action at the T-Mobile Arena.
The San Jose Sharks look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The San Jose Sharks are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 20.5 percent of their power play opportunities. Logan Couture leads San Jose with 13 goals, Evander Kane has 12 assists and Timo Meier has 69 shots on goal. Defensively, the San Jose Sharks are allowing 3.6 goals per game and are killing 78.6 percent of their opponents power plays. Martin Jones has allowed 52 goals on 449 shots and Devan Dubnyk has allowed 33 goals on 343 shots.
The Vegas Golden Knights look to stay hot after winning eight of their last 10 games. The Vegas Golden Knights are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 17.3 percent of their power play opportunities. Max Pacioretty leads Vegas with 13 goals, Mark Stone has 22 assists and Jonathan Marchessault has 68 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vegas Golden Knights are allowing 2.3 goals per game and are killing 84.4 percent of their opponents power plays. Robin Lehner has given up 15 goals on 136 shots faced and Marc-Andre Fleury has given up 34 goals on 523 shots.
The Sharks are 2-9 in their last 11 games following a win and 3-7 in their last 10 vs. a team with a winning record. The Golden Knights are 35-16 in their last 51 home games and 41-17 in their last 58 overall. The under is 3-0-1 in Sharks last 4 overall. The over is 5-2-1 in Golden Knights last 8 overall. The Sharks are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings. The road team is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings. The favorite is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
The San Jose Sharks have had issues stringing together wins all season long and their inability to get stops defensively makes them a tough sell on the road especially. The Vegas Golden Knights are not only one of the hotter teams in the league with an elite level defense, but they've won all three meetings this season against the Sharks, which includes a shutout win last week. I'll take the Golden Knights and the PL.
