The Stars are 6-1 in their last 7 road games and 4-9 in their last 13 vs. Western Conference. The Sharks are 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 3-9 in their last 12 Monday games. The Stars are 1-7 in the last 8 meetings in San Jose and 0-4 in the last 4 meetings overall.
The Stars have had little success recently against the Sharks, especially when the games are being played in San Jose. I like the home team here.
