San Jose will open a 3 game homestand against their Pacific Division rivals Anaheim on Tuesday.
Anaheim has rattled after back to back wins after their tough start to the season, while the Sharks will try to put an end to their 2 game losing skid.
Ducks are finally seeing some production from their key players, as they’ve rattled off 2 straight wins after a tough start to the season.
Anaheim’s Corey Perry tallied a goal and an assist in the 4-2 win over Vancouver on Sunday, as he continues to give the Ducks some consistent play early on. Perry has 5 points through the first 5 games.
Captain Ryan Getzlaf is also off to a fast start this season. Getzlaf, who had 3 assists on Sunday, has 7 assists total thus far to lead the league.
G John Gibson has stepped up his play as well, allowing just 2 goals in each of his last 3 games.
Offensively, the Ducks still have some work to do. Anaheim has averaged just 2.3 goals per game, which ranks near the bottom in the NHL.
San Jose Sharks
The Sharks recent road trip is one to forget, as they dropped 3 of the last 4 and 2 straight before coming home for this one against Anaheim.
San Jose was by far the best road team in the NHL last year, as they tallied 28 wins away from the SAP Center. However, returning home for San Jose is a breath of fresh air here on Tuesday.
The Sharks have played just 1 game at home this year, which was the first game of the season against the Kings. San Jose erased an early 1-0 deficit to take down Los Angeles 2-1.
After their recent road trip struggles, the Sharks alternated some of their lines in practice on Monday. They’ll now use Mikkel Boedker on the first line, with Tomas Hertl now on the 2nd line. The shift hopes to spark this Sharks offense, that is averaging just 2.33 goals per game this season.
San Jose will look to change their fortunes from last season in this series, where they lost 3 of 4 to the Ducks.
