The Sharks trimmed the scored to 2-1 later in the first, but two-plus minutes into the second saw Cody Glass push it back to a two-goal lead on assists by Max Pacioretty and Stone. Smith added an insurance goal in the third period with an assist going to Karlsson. Marc-Andre Fleury registered 21 saves on 22 shots to pick up the win.

NHL Betting Trends

Las Vegas

The Golden Knights are 6-2 in their last eight Friday games. Las Vegas is 2-6 in its last eight versus the Pacific Division.

San Jose

The Sharks are 1-4 in their last five games played on one day of rest. San Jose is 0-4 in its last four games versus the Western Conference.

Prediction:

I'll take a little bit of that home cooking, revenge factor, and home opener all rolled into one neat package. The Sharks aren't getting a lot of respect from oddsmakers here and while Las Vegas is a very talented team, I like San Jose to bounce back here as its veteran core knows how to respond to tough losses and make necessary adjustments.
