The San Jose Sharks are averaging 2.57 goals per game and are scoring on 18.6 percent of their power play opportunities. Erik Karlsson leads San Jose with 10 goals, Tomas Hertl has 9 assists and Timo Meier has 74 shots on goal. Defensively, the San Jose Sharks are allowing 3.29 goals per game and are killing 92.3 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Kaapo Kahkonen has allowed 18 goals on 148 shots faced, and James Reimer has allowed 26 goals on 290 shots.

The Sharks are 16-36 in their last 52 road games and 13-40 in their last 53 overall. The Blues are 0-4 in their last 4 home games and 0-8 in their last 8 overall. The over is 5-0-1 in Sharks last 6 overall. The over is 3-1-2 in Blues last 6 overall. The Sharks are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings in St. Louis and 3-13 in the last 16 meetings. The road team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The favorite is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings.

I’m not running to the window to back either of these teams riding long losing streaks, but if forced to pick, I’m siding with the club that’s paying out plus money. The St. Louis Blues have lost 8 straight games, and they’ve been horrible at both ends of the ice, especially on offense. Yes, there’s talent on this Blues roster, but I need a win or two before I can back them in the favorite role. Give me the Sharks and the plus money.
