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


Pittsburgh is listed as a -165 road favorite while San Jose is a +140 home underdog. The total for this game is set at 6 goals.


For Pittsburgh, Mark Friedman is out for this game an upper body injury while Jan Rutta and Tristan Jarry are both out until late February for the Pens with upper body injuries. For San Jose, Kaapo Kahkonen and James Reimer are both questionable in goal for San Jose while Radim Simek is out until late February with an upper body injury.

Matchup History

San Jose’s 6-4 win back on January 28th, 2023, snapped Pittsburgh’s two-game head-to-head win streak in this matchup.


Pittsburgh is 1-5 in their last 6 road games and 37-16 in their last 53 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 games against the Pacific division. San Jose is 20-51 in their last 71 games overall and 16-36 in their last 52 home games while the over is 4-1-1 in their last 6 games following a win.


I’m leaning towards the Sharks +1.5 here. You’ll probably have to pay up on it a little bit, but I think worst case scenario is that this is a one goal game that goes the way of Pittsburgh. San Jose has done a good job lately at being competitive despite the fact that this Sharks team is going nowhere fast and the Sharks have had a fair bit of success in this matchup in the past. I’ll take my shot with San Jose +1.5.
