Pick

Anaheim was able to put together a nice winning streak, but they have lost two games in a row and are looking to get back on track here. San Jose finally got their first two wins of the season, but they fell 5-0 to Vegas in their last game. San Jose has played very poorly to start this season and even though they were able to win two of their last three games, they still have a long way to go. Anaheim is at home for this game and I like them to win by at least two goals.
