When Will the Sharks Pick Up Their First Win?

Kaapo Kahkonen saved only 13 of the 19 shots that he faced. The Sharks on the season is averaging 1.0 goals per game while their defense is giving up 4.4 goals per game. The offense is ranked 32nd and the defense is ranked 32nd. 

Shane’s Free Pick

The Penguins haven’t had the best season, but they are going to have little issues in this game. The Sharks are averaging only one goal per game and they are going to really struggle to get any type of offense going here. The Sharks aren’t going to score more than a goal here and that is going to be the difference as the Penguins are going to get the job done here. Back the Penguins on the puck line. 

Shane’s Pick Penguins -1.5
