The San Jose Sharks and Florida Panthers face off on Tuesday in an NHL showdown at the FLA Live Arena. 

Sharks Offense is Struggling

The Sharks offense is struggling and over their last two games they have scored only two goals. The Sharks currently sit with  an 0-4-1 record overall and they have to find a way to get the offense going here. In the last game  against the Nashville Predators the defense gave up five goals. The Sharks are averaging 1.4 goals while their defense is giving up 3.8 goals per game. The offense is ranked 31st while the defense is ranked 26th.

Panthers Defense Needs to Be Better

The Panthers sit with a 2-3 record overall and in the last game the defense really struggled. The Pantehrs gave up five goals to the Vancouver Canucks and that led to the defeat. Andrei Kuzmenko scored one goal and added another assist. The Panthers offense overall is averaging 2.8 goals while their defense is giving up 3.4 goals per game. The offense and defense are both ranked 24th in the league.

Shane’s Free Pick

This is a matchup between a Sharks offense that has struggled while the Panthers defense has had some major issues. The Panthers defense isn’t good, but I still really don’t trust this Sharks offense. They are averaging only 1.4 goals per game and they are going to really struggle to get the offense going here. The Sharks will only score a goal or two and this will be an easy victory by the Panthers. Back the Panthers on the puck line. 

Shane’s Pick Panthers -1.5
