Winnipeg Jets vs San Jose Sharks prediction

The Winnipeg Jets remain one of the best teams in the league, and they've been just as good on the road as they've been at home. The San Jose Sharks are back to looking like a team that shouldn't be in the NHL, as the defense is a train wreck and the offense has been held to 1 or fewer goals in 5 of their last 9 games. A complete mismatch here. Give me the Jets and the PL to shave down the price.
