On the other side, Martin Jones will play tonight for the Sharks, who have rotated goaltenders of late. Jones has a 2.25 GAA and a .919 save percentage in 62 contests this season. In his last start, he was solid against the Kings in a 5-2 win on Monday. He made 30 saves to improve his record to 36-21-4 with a 2.25 GAA on the season.

For whatever reason, the Canucks have played well in San Jose in previous meetings between these two teams. Vancouver is 5-0 in its last five road games versus San Jose and the road team has won 19 of the last 26 meetings between these two teams. The Sharks should win tonight but the Canucks are worth a flier on the puckline.
