Battling for the top spot in the Pacific Division, the Arizona Coyotes have sandwiched a pair of three-game slides around a four-game winning streak. They are currently tied for first place in the Pacific, but have lost their last 3.
The Coyotes are seeking to avoid a season-worst fourth consecutive defeat when they square off with the visiting San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night in their third meeting since Nov. 30.
In their previous meetings so far this season, The Sharks posted a 4-2 victory at Arizona on Nov. 30 but dropped a 3-2 decision to the Coyotes at home on Dec. 17.
This should be an interesting game to watch in the desert. I for one like the Sharks in this game, but lets dig into the stats and see if that’s still the case at the end.
San Jose Sharks
San Jose staggered through a stretch last month in which it lost 10 of 11 but is 5-2-1 in the last eight following back-to-back victories over Columbus and Dallas.
Defenseman Brent Burns had to exit Saturday’s game due to an upper-body injury but returned in the third period and wound up with a goal and an assist in San Jose’s 2-1 win.
Burns, who has scored in back-to-back games, did not practice Monday but is listed as probable to extend his consecutive-games streak that now stands at 518. If he is unable to go Erik Karlsson will likely pick up the offensive slack. Sharks D Erik Karlsson has a goal and five assists during a five-game point streak.
On the injury front, Sharks C Barclay Goodrow (illness) missed Monday’s practice but will travel to Arizona.
Starting in net for the San Jose Sharks may be backup Aaron Dell. His stats on the season are: 6-7-2 W-L | 2.99 GAA | 0.903 SV% | 0 SO
Starting netminder Darcy Kuemper is expected to be out until the All-Star break and Antti Raanta is not expected to be available Tuesday.
Arizona received a boost on the blue line Sunday. Defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson returned to the lineup following a 43-game absence and made an immediate impact with an assist and two blocked shots.
The Coyotes need to pick it up on the powerplay if they want to win this game. The Coyotes are 0-for-9 on the power play during their three-game slide.
Arizona is without its top two netminders due to injury but snagged a point in a 4-3 shootout loss to Pittsburgh as Adin Hill turned aside 31 shots. His stats on the season so far are: 1-1-0 W-L | 2.7 GAA | 0.924 SV% | 0 SO

Free San Jose Sharks vs. Arizona Coyotes NHL Prediction:
I really like the under in this game. The Sharks have been playing some really good hockey as of late, going 5-3-2 in their last 10. They’ve won their last 2 and are coming in with some momentum.
The Sharks have kept their opponents to 2 or less goals in 6 of their past 8 games. Meanwhile, the Coyotes have only been able to score 3 goals in their past 3 games, that includes being shut out twice.
