The San Jose Sharks will look to build on a 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings in their last matchup. Evander Kane leads the Sharks in scoring with 33 points including a team-ihgih 16 goals with 17 assists while Logan Couture has 25 points with 13 goals.

Anaheim is 16-36 in their last 52 games overall and 3-8 in their last 11 road games while the under is 5-2 in their last 7 games as an underdog. San Jose is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall and 4-0 in their last 4 home games while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games as a home favorite.
I think that this game is between two teams that want the same thing, and that’s a rivalry win and a pair of points to try to make an attempt at getting back into the playoff race if possible. I normally would chalk that up to an under with both teams not wanting to give up an inch to the other, but I think this is not one of those times as these two will simply want to bury the other on the scoreboard. Give me the over here.
