The San Jose Sharks will try to build on their beatdown win over the Avs last time out. Logan Couture has 19 points with a team-high 11 goals and 8 assists while Evander Kane has 18 points with 8 goals and 10 apples and Timo Meier’s got 4 goals and 10 assists for his 14-point tally on the year.

Colorado is 20-9 in their last 29 road games and 12-3 in their last 15 Wednesday games while the under is 14-5 in their last 19 Wednesday games. San Jose is 2-6 in their last 8 home games and 1-5 in their last 6 games as a home underdog while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games as an underdog. The over is 18-7-2 in the last 27 meetings between these two teams and 12-3-1 in the last 16 meetings between the two in San Jose.
Both of these teams have had issues with consistency as of late, but one thing that both are doing for sure is playing in high-scoring games and I think we have another high-scoring game here. The goaltending’s been shaky on both sides but the offensive capability is still there. I could easily see another 5-4 or even 6-5 type of game so give me the over in this spot.
