The Anaheim Ducks and the San Jose Sharks meet in NHL action from the SAP Center on Saturday night.
The Anaheim Ducks will look to rebound from an 8-5 loss to the Vancouver Canucks in their last game. Troy Terry leads the Ducks with 15 points including 5 goals and a team-high 10 assists while Trevor Zegras has 10 points with a team-high 7 goals and Ryan Strome has 8 points with 3 goals and 5 assists. Frank Vatrano also has 5 points with 4 goals as well this season. John Gibson has gone 2-6-1 with a 4.58 GAA and an .883 save percentage while Anthony Stolarz is 1-1 with a 3.96 GAA and an .899 save percentage this season.
The San Jose Sharks will try to snap a three-game losing skid after their 4-3 loss to Florida in their last game. Erik Karlsson has a team-high 18 points with a team-high 10 goals and 8 assists while Timo Meier and Logan Couture each have 8 points with 4 goals and 4 assists while Tomas Hertl has 8 points with 7 assists. James Reimer has gone 2-5-1 with a 2.77 GAA and a .917 save percentage while Kaapo Kahkonen is 1-3-1 with a 3.62 GAA and an .878 save percentage in goal for the Sharks this season.
Anaheim is 15-36 in their last 51 road games and 1-4 in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 6-1-1 in their last 8 games against the Western Conference. San Jose is 8-20 in their last 28 home games and 13-39 in their last 52 games overall while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400.
I get the case to be made for San Jose on home ice, but I’m not laying any sort of juice with the Sharks otherwise. The Ducks haven’t been very good, but they did just beat the Sharks in this same spot just a few days ago and with two struggling sides, if forced to bet, I want the team that’s giving me plus money on the takeback. Give me the Ducks.
