The Sharks are in a freefall right now, losing six straight by a combined total of 7-23. Still, San Jose is 42-26-7 on the season. With 91 points, they sit tied for second in the Pacific with the Oilers, but just a point ahead of the Flames for fourth in the division. The last four games of this six-game losing streak did come on the road, but they are still just 2-3 in their last five at home.

The Rangers are coming off a 6-3 loss at Anaheim on Sunday to fall to 46-26-4 on the season. New York has 96 points to sit at fourth in the Metropolitan Division, but they are comfortably in a playoff spot right now as they would be leading the Atlantic Division by three points. New York is just 1-3 in its last four and 2-5 in their last seven, but they have won four of their last seven on the road.

Bet on Rangers vs. Sharks

The Rangers aren’t exactly playing that well right now, but most of their losses have been competitive. They have fallen by one goal in their last four losses, with two going to OT or a shootout. The Sharks have lost their last two games by five goals each. They are really struggling on defense right now. While they are returning home, that’s not going to be enough to cure their issues.
