(3 Units) San Jose Sharks @ Edmonton Oilers: SHARKS 1.60

We’re going to take the Sharks for 3 units as there is a lot of juice on this one. The San Jose Sharks have lost back to back games, both required a shootout. It’s time for the Sharks to get back to their winning ways tonight against Edmonton. The Sharks are just one of three teams whom have clinched a playoff spot (Western/Pacific Division), the other two clubs are the Bruins (Eastern/Atlantic) and the Blues (Western/Central). The Sharks have 101 points (73 GP) and rank 3rd overall in the NHL standings. The Oilers on the other hand rank dead last in the Western Conference with a mere 59 points and are the 2nd worst team in the League overall as the Sabres are the only team with less points, 48 points. The San Jose club is 46-18-9 on the season and 20-13-4 on the road, while the struggling Oilers have gone just 13-18-3 at the Rexall Centre and are 25-38-9 overall. Aside from the loss to Calgary last night, the Sharks have won their past four games on the road, dating back to March.2nd. The Oilers suffered an 8-1 loss to Calgary on Saturday (an underdog winner for members), and two days prior they had lost to the only team worse than them in the NHL standings, the Buffalo Sabres by a score of 3-1. The Oilers were outscored 11-2 in their last two games, and 19-5 across their last four losses. The Oilers have scored just 2.30 goals per game over their last 10 games while giving up an average of 3.10 goals against per game. Overall the Oilers rank 24th for scoring with 2.43 goals per game and allow 3.24 goals against per game, ranked 28th overall. The Sharks have scored an average of 3.10 goals per game over their last 10 games while allowing an impressive 1.90 GA/G, and have done all of this while going only 8.6% on the power play over their last 10 games and are just 23rd overall at 15.8%. If the Sharks can get their power play going they will be doing even better. The Oilers are in very rough shape right now and the Sharks are looking to get back in the win column tonight. We’ll lay some chalk on the Sharks tonight.
