The Anaheim Ducks on the other hand are kind of having the season a lot of people expected, as they have not really been contenders at any point this year and are clearly firmly looking towards the future as an organization.
San Jose Sharks
San Jose has not been amazing as of late, but they have been playing some seriously good competition and they are coming off an impressive 3-2 win over the St. Louis Blues, so the Sharks should have plenty of belief that they can take care of business here on the road against the Ducks.
Fortunately for the Sharks, and despite his off-ice issues, Evander Kane has managed to play this season at a high level helping out the offense with 9 goals and 11 assists which are numbers only bested by Logan Couture on his team.
Martin Jones is slated for the start here which should not give the Sharks much faith as he currently has a GAA approaching 4 and a save percentage of .879%. Despite that though, he should be in a decent position here to have a good game, as we know Jones has the ability to be a top goaltender and you would imagine he would start turning these numbers around at some point this season.
The Ducks look as though they are getting back to old ways last time out as they fell to the LA Kings by a score of 5-1 in what ended up not being a very competitive affair for much of the match. That previous loss also means that this team is 2-10 in their last 12 contests, so saying they are already planning on what this roster will look like next year really is not all that harsh.
Another worry for this team has been their inability to score, as they have only averaged 2.26 goals per game which just is not going to cut it especially in the 2021 version of the NHL which is a bit more high scoring.
John Gibson should be starting between the pipes for Anaheim and he has not had as bad of a season as he could have given his blueline and at this moment has numbers very close to .900% as a save percent and 3.00 as a GAA.

Free San Jose Sharks vs. Anaheim Ducks NHL Prediction:
This line is a little bit baffling to me and I know the Sharks are no world-beaters, but they should be favorite in this spot against a Ducks team who just can’t score. The Sharks have enough offensively and I believe enough in Jones that I am willing to roll with the road Sharks this Friday.
