The Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks meet Tuesday in NHL action at the SAP Center.
The Anaheim Ducks need a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Anaheim Ducks are averaging 2.2 goals per game and are scoring on 10.5 percent of their power play opportunities. Max Comtois leads Anaheim with 10 goals, Rickard Rakell has 15 assists and Jakob Silfverberg has 75 shots on goal. Defensively, the Anaheim Ducks are allowing 3.3 goals per game and are killing 76.6 percent of their opponents power plays. John Gibson has given up 72 goals on 704 shots faced and Ryan Miller has given up 45 goals on 382 shots.
The San Jose Sharks look to build on their solid four-game winning streak. The San Jose Sharks are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 18.2 percent of their power play opportunities. Evander Kane leads San Jose with 16 goals, Brent Burns has 16 assists and Timo Meier has 103 shots on goal. Defensively, the San Jose Sharks are allowing 3.3 goals per game and are killing 80.2 percent of their opponents power plays. Martin Jones has allowed 68 goals on 717 shots and Devan Dubnyk has allowed 47 goals on 462 shots.
The Ducks are 3-8 in their last 11 road games and 16-36 in their last 52 overall. The Sharks are 4-0 in their last 4 home games and 4-0 in their last 4 overall. The under is 5-2 in Ducks last 7 overall. The over is 4-1 in Sharks last 5 home games. The Ducks are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in San Jose and 1-6 in the last 7 meetings. The favorite is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.
The Anaheim Ducks just can't get out of their own way with an offense that struggles to produce consistently and a defense that shows signs of slipping even further. The San Jose Sharks are coming off their best week of the season and they should like their chances here conserving they've won four of the five meetings this season against the Ducks. In fact, the Sharks have outscored the Ducks 12-3 in the last three meetings. Price is a bit steep, but I'll still back the Sharks in this spot.
