The St. Louis Blues and San Jose Sharks meet Friday in NHL action at the SAP Center.
The St. Louis Blues need a win here to snap a five game losing streak. The St. Louis Blues are averaging three goals per game and are scoring on 19.5 percent of their power play opportunities. Brayden Schenn leads St. Louis with 12 goals, David Perron has 18 assists and Torey Krug has 69 shots on goal. Defensively, the St. Louis Blues are allowing 3.2 goals per game and are killing 73.7 percent of their opponents power plays. Jordan Binnington has allowed 57 goals on 596 shots and Ville Husso has allowed 31 goals on 257 shots.
The San Jose Sharks need a win after losing five of their last eight games. The San Jose Sharks are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 19.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Logan Couture leads San Jose with 13 goals, Evander Kane has 14 assists and Timo Meier has 72 shots on goal. Defensively, the San Jose Sharks are allowing 3.5 goals per game and are killing 77.9 percent of their opponents power plays. Martin Jones has allowed 52 goals on 449 shots and Devan Dubnyk has allowed 40 goals on 416 shots.
The Blues are 9-4 in their last 13 road games and 0-5 in their last 5 overall. The Sharks are 3-9 in their last 12 home games and 1-4 in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest. The under is 4-1 in Blues last 5 road games. The under is 4-1-1 in Sharks last 6 overall. The Blues are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in San Jose and 8-3 in the last 11 meetings.
The St. Louis Blues are the better team here on paper by a decent margin, but they haven't looked good over the last week and that defense has been shaky at best. The San Jose Sharks haven't been lighting the world on fire in their own right, but they have cashed some tickets in the underdog role and have won two of the last three meetings against the Blues, with three victories against them overall this season. I'll take a shot with the Sharks and the plus money at home.
