San Jose Sharks vs Calgary Flames prediction

No matter what you think of the Calgary Flames, backing the Sharks in any shape or form simply isn't an option. The San Jose Sharks have been the worst team in the league for much of the season, and they've done nothing to change much. The Sharks are also 5-19-3 on the road this season. The Sharks have scored 2 or fewer goals in 6 of their last 9 games. I want nothing to do with the Sharks. Give met he Flames and the PL for max betting value.
