San Jose has abruptly turned things around following a five-game slide, and might even pull off a fifth straight victory heading into Anaheim, just as the Ducks seem to be going into a slide themselves.
Anaheim looked like a serious playoff contender to start the season, but those dreams seem to be fading with each passing week. It’s early days yet, but divisional matchups always count as important wins.
So, what’s going on in Anaheim. As noted, they started relatively strong but recently they’ve been unable to protect a pair of third-period leads in their last three games, including one to basement dwelling Detroit.
They have offence (when it gels) but they’ve been misfiring more the firing lately.
San Jose Sharks
We might also ask what’s going on in San Jose. A strong playoff team last year, reaching the Western Conference finals, losing to eventual Stanley Cup champs the St. Louis Blues.
We knew San Jose was going to be that team going into the 2019/2020 season, still, winning only four times in 15 games over the first month of the season was a darn sight worse than anyone expected.
However, San Jose have turned things around following a five-game slide and will go for their fifth straight victory at the skidding Anaheim Ducks on Thursday night.
It has been a lack of offense (partly) that has stymied the Sharks earlier this season. They scored just eight times during their five-game losing streak. Then suddenly erupted for 18 goals in winning their last four.
There’s still a less than adequate defense to worry about, and while the Sharks offensive output is making up for lack of grit on the blue line, eventually that arraignment will fall short.
Free San Jose Sharks vs. Anaheim Ducks NHL Prediction:
The question is, will it fall short against the Ducks? Anaheim can score as well, and have their share of skaters. But just like the Sharks, their defense can become porous at just the wrong moment.
When push comes to shove, it looks like the Sharks can find the aggressive game play that propelled them to the Western Conference final last year.
The Sharks are going to want that win bad. They know this divisional matchup is going to count big in making up for those early season losses, if points totals are close or tied at the end of the season.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Sharks ML
This should be Anaheim’s game. Especially considering the Sharks performance up until very recently. But it doesn’t look like the Duck’s slide is over yet.
Take the Sharks and the over.
