Our Prediction

Even though the Blues have been one of the best teams in hockey since the start of January, this is a great price on a Sharks team that is 11-1-1 at home since Christmas Break. The Blues got a miraculous win in Anaheim on Wednesday night by scoring two goals in just over a minute to erase a one-goal deficit. The club then turned around and blanked the Kings 4-0 in L.A. on Thursday before getting a night off on Friday. Despite the Ducks and Kings’ struggles this year, those are two heavy, physical teams. The Sharks play a similar style but are much more explosive offensively and I see them picking up their fourth consecutive victory.
