The Arizona Coyotes travel to the SAP Center to challenge thee San Jose Sharks on Saturday.

The Arizona Coyotes continue their road trip with their next stop scheduled for San Jose. The Coyotes are looking to get back in the win column following a 3-1 defeat at the American Airlines Center which hasn't been a good place to play as they have dropped five iin a row there. The Arizona offese consisted of a first period tally by Lauri Korpikoski with the man advantage but were silent the rest of the way. The Stars looked dead in the water until they found their offense in the third with Jason Spezza, Cody Eakin and John Klingberg found the back of the net to end a three game skid with Kari Lehtonen recording 25 stops while Mike Smith took the loss on 25 stops.

The San Jose Sharks continue their homestand when the Coyotes come to town on Saturday. The Sharks are looking to rebound from a 3-2, shootout defeat at the hands of visiting Florida on Thursday. The Sharks could not control Nick Bjugstad who lit the lamp in the first and second periods before ending the night with the game winner in the shootout. San Jose received a power play tally from Logan Couture in the second while Patrick Marleau netted the equalizer with Antti Niemi pulled for the extra attacker with a mere 24 seconds left in regulation. Roberto Luongo recorded 28 stops in the victory while Niemi made 26 stops in the loss that made Florida 2-0 versus San Jose.

The under is 4-0 in Coyotes last 4 overall while the Coyotes are 5-1 in their last 6 vs. Pacific and Coyotes are 1-5 in their last 6 vs. a team with a losing record. For San Jose thr under is 4-0-2 in Sharks last 6 overall while the under is 3-0-2 in Sharks last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and is 4-0-2 in Sharks last 6 after scoring 2 goals or less in their previous game. Head to head the under is 6-1-1 in the last 8 meetings while the Coyotes are 3-10 in the last 13 meetings in San Jose with the under going 16-6-4 in the last 26 meetings in San Jose. San Jose has fared well in this match up while the under has been a strong play. I'm waiting on goalies but lean to the Sharks...

Pick:
San Jose -.5

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
