It’s a Western Conference showdown to start the conference playoffs on Thursday night, as the San Jose Sharks and Anaheim Ducks will go toe-toe to kick off the start of the NHL playoffs.
The teams matched up four times in the regular season. Each team won two of the previous match ups with the home team winning each match up. Two of the four match ups were also decided by one goal.
San Jose Sharks
The San Jose Sharks are ready to take on the Anaheim Ducks as they were down a point that decided who was going to get that extra home game. However, now the Sharks must continue their veteran attack and continue to push towards in the playoffs. This is a huge value play for the Sharks as this is the best possible match for them.
They are averaging three goals per game with allowing almost 2.72 goals to their name. The Sharks are one of the most experienced teams heading into the playoffs, but have not managed to reach the Cup. Will they this year?
The Anaheim Ducks have the heart to compete in the playoffs and bring something back to Anaheim, but will injuries hold them back. Anaheim is still dealing with injury effects, with goalie John Gibson still not at 100 percent and Cam Fowler who might miss more than the first round of playoffs. Can Anaheim still get it done like they did in the regular season?
Anaheim had the eighteen highest goals per game scored in the NHL with averaging 2.8 goals per game and only allowing 2.51 goals per game. Not the biggest window in the world, but expect this series to go all the way until the end.
