The San Jose Sharks and the Pittsburgh Penguins meet in NHL action from the PPG Paints Arena on Saturday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


Pittsburgh is listed as a -250 home favorite while San Jose is a +210 road underdog with the total for this game set at 6 goals.


For San Jose, Marc-Edouard Vlasic is questionable for this game with an illness while Radim Simek is out indefinitely with an upper body injury. For Pittsburgh, Tristain Jarry and Jan Rutta are both out until mid February with respective upper body injuries while Kasperi Kapanen is out indefinitely with a lower body injury and Josh Archibald is out until early February with a lower body injury.

Matchup History

Pittsburgh’s 2-1 OT win back on January 15th, 2022, made it back-to-back wins for the Penguins over the Sharks in this matchup.


San Jose is 0-5 in their last 5 games against the Metropolitan division and 1-4 in their last 5 games after allowing 5 goals or more in the previous game while the over is 4-1-1 in their last 6 games played on no rest. Pittsburgh is 10-2 in their last 12 games against the Western Conference and 5-0 in their last 5 games when their opponent allows 5 goals or more in their previous game while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games against the Pacific division.


I’m taking the over here. I don’t trust either goaltending group right now, especially Pittsburgh with the Penguins having to turn back to Casey DeSmith between the pipes and the Sharks, well they haven’t been trustworthy all year long and just had a rollercoaster as they almost beat the Hurricanes last time out. I think we have some goals coming here, so give me the over here.
