The Canucks have won just 3 of their last 10 games against the Sharks and are 0-6 in their last 6 visits to San Jose. The over has hit in 4 of the last 5 games played between these two teams. My pick is with San Jose to win at home as the Canucks have been hot, but are due to cool off a bit and San Jose needs the win more.
