The San Jose Sharks look for a win here to get a game above a .500 record. The San Jose Sharks are averaging three goals per game and are scoring on 25 percent of their power play opportunities. Thomas Hertl leads San Jose with three goals, Evander Kane has two assists and Logan Couture has seven shots on goal. Defensively, the San Jose Sharks are allowing three goals per game and are killing 75 percent of their opponents power plays. Martin Jones has allowed eight goals on 61 shots and Devan Dubnyk has allowed zero goals on two shots.
The St. Louis Blues look for a win to get a game above a .500 record. The St. Louis Blues are averaging two goals per game and are scoring on zero percent of their power play opportunities.

The Sharks are 1-6 in their last 7 road games and 1-5 in their last 6 overall. The Blues are 0-6 in their last 6 home games and 3-8 in their last 11 overall. The over is 4-0 in Sharks last 4 overall. The over is 4-1 in Blues last 5 home games. The Sharks are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in St. Louis and 0-5 in the last 5 meetings. The home team is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings.
The San Jose Sharks have not only had no recent success against the Blues in recent meetings, but they've also been horrible dating back to last season in the underdog role. The St. Louis Blues also have to be eager to get back on the ice after getting waxed by the Colorado Avalanche, 0-8. I expect a motivated effort this time around from the Blues. I'll lay the reasonable price with the home team.
