The Sharks are 12-2-1 in their last 15 games with Pittsburgh and 7-1 in their last 8 games after a win. Pittsburgh is just 1-4 in their last 5 games and 4-11 in their last 15 home games against a team with a winning road record. My pick is with San Jose as they are too strong on the road and Pittsburgh is dealing with key injuries.
