Columbus continues their west coast swing as they head into San Jose, to take on the Sharks on Thursday night.
The Blue Jackets saw their 2 game winning streak come to a halt, while the Sharks got back in the win column last time out.
Columbus Blue Jackets
The Blue Jackets have put up a fight in every game this season, as they continue to battle here in the early going.
After dropping their opening two games by slim margins, they rattled off back to back wins against the Blackhawks and Stars. They gave the Kings all they could handle in their second game of the road trip, but an overtime loss was their fate.
G Sergei Bobrovsky has started in all 5 of the Jackets games, as he has given up 2.8 goals per game this season. However, on the road he’s been much better. Bobrovsky has conceded just 1.5 goals against in a pair of road games.
The Blue Jackets will look to Nick Folign to carry them offensively, as he has 5 points thus far into the season.
The power play will be something to watch, as the Blue Jackets have gone 5 for 10 on it, taking full advantage of the extra man.
San Jose Sharks
The Sharks enter play with a little momentum after grabbing a win over Anaheim, but they also have a win already this season against the Blue Jackets.
They went into Columbus on October 15th and notched a 3-2 victory, in a game that could have sparked Joe Pavelski.
After Columbus held him scoreless, Pavelski has tallied 3 goals and 5 assists. He scored a power play goal in the win over Anaheim and also added the game winning assist in overtime.
Known for their road play last season, the Sharks have started things off a bit unorthodox at home this season.
San Jose has captured wins in both of their first two games this season, allowing just 1 goal against per game.
While the Blue Jackets have been dominant on the PP, the Sharks have been equally as tall on the PK. They have turned down 15 of the 16 last opportunities for the opposition.
