San Jose Sharks Fantasy Spin
Martin Jones made 31 saves, but it wasn't enough as the Los Angeles Kings won 4-2 over the San Jose Sharks Thursday night. Jones didn't get pulled in favor of another goalie like he did Monday, but he still allowed three goals on 34 shots against the Kings. Jones's record is now 34-16-5 with a 2.91 GAA and an .898 save percentage.
Anaheim Ducks Fantasy Spin
John Gibson’s four game winning streak ended Wednesday night when the Ducks lost 3-0 versus the Jets. Gibson played well against the Jets, but a lack of goal support resulted in a loss and a broken win streak for the 25-year old goaltender. Gibson made 20 saves and was beat three times throughout the contest. His record this season falls to 22-22-8, and he owns a 2.87 GAA and .916 save percentage.
The Sharks have lost four straight games, all as a favorite.
The Ducks have won five of their last seven games coming off one day of rest.
The Sharks a little expensive tonight for a team coming off four straight losses but I like them to snap the streak tonight. They’re a perfect 6-0 in their last six games in Anaheim and are 8-1 in their last nine games versus the Ducks overall. The road team has won seven of the previous 10 meetings between these two teams while the favorite is also 4-1 in the previous five meetings.
