The Sharks put an end to their 2 game losing streak in a big way as they dropped a 7 spot in their latest victory. They’ll look to make it 2 in a row when they head into Calgary to do battle with the Flames.
The Flames had won 11 straight at home, but have since dropped 3 of their last 4 there as they’ve regressed back into their sloppy habits.
The San Jose Sharks have flirted with the .500 mark all season long and they got themselves back above the break-even mark after their 7 goal outburst against Toronto last time out.
The Sharks dropped 2 straight games and took out a lot of frustration as they surged into a 5th place tie in a crowded Pacific division with the Flames.
The reason for San Jose’s success this season has been because of their road play. The Sharks have been one of the best away from home as they’ve gone 13-6-2-0 inside the opposition’s house. They’ve had little problem scoring on the road as they’ve put in 3.00 goals per game.
Tomas Hertl sparked the 7 goal outburst against Toronto as he put in 2 goals in the win. Hertl had just 2 goals over his last 34 contests prior to that.
Joe Pavelski has scored 3 goals over the last 4 games to push his total to 21 on the season.
The Flames went on one of their most epic home runs in their franchise history as they rattled off 11 straight wins.
Since then, they have dropped 3 of 4 at home and are now just 13-8 SU inside Scotiabank Saddledome.
The Flames problems have come from their inability to stop the opposition from scoring. Calgary has allowed 3.08 goals against this season. G Karri Ramo has been the better end of the goalie rotation this season as he is 15-13-1 while allowing just 2.52 GAA.
Ramo has allowed just 3 goals over his last 3 contests and defeated this Sharks team back on Dec. 8 4-2.
Calgary has had their way with the Sharks, winning 7 of the last 9 against their divisional foes.
