The San Jose Sharks travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Penguins in search of their fifth win in a row.
At 11-8-0, the San Jose Sharks are just two points behind the L.A. Kings for the lead in the Pacific Division.
The Sharks have been up and down this season, but a four-game winning streak has them feeling good headed into this matchup with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The Sharks have played surprisingly well on the road this year, especially against the Eastern Conference.
San Jose is 5-1 in its last six road games and is 6-2 on the road versus Eastern Conference opponents this season.
Led by Joe Pavelski, Joe Thornton, and the emergence of former King Martin Jones taking advantage of his starting role between the pipes, the Sharks are looking to extend their winning streak to five games.
After dropping two straight where they were outscored 6-1, the Penguins answered back with back-to-back 4-3 wins over the Wild and Avalanche respectively.
Pittsburgh will look to continue that Western Conference winning streak against the Sharks. The Penguins are 7-3 at home this season and have amassed 12 goals in their last three home games.
Led by Evgeni Malkin’s 17 points, the Penguins are getting the job done more so with their defense and goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury.
The Penguins have only scored 44 goals in 19 games, good enough for an average of 2.3 per game. San Jose, on the other hand, is nearly averaging .5 goals per game more.
The Penguins are also just 5-4-0 against Western Conference opponents this year, and they’ll have to be quick against Jones who has a GAA of 2.09 and three shutouts so far.
