Both teams sit at 1-1 and the Sharks will look to get off on the right foot as they start their east coast trip.
San Jose Sharks
The San Jose Sharks start their east coast trip with the New York Islanders on Monday afternoon.
Evander Kane will look to make it three games with a goal. If he doesn’t the offense will look to get their goals from the usual suspects in Joe Thornton, Logan Couture, and Joe Pavelski.
Defensively, the Sharks have been solid in not allowing many goal opportunities in their two games. Martin Jones hasn’t been great, but we know he can be. And against the Isles he should perform pretty well in this spot.
New York Islanders
Without John Tavares, this isn’t a scary looking team. As the season progresses we will have to see who exactly will step up.
Right now, Valtteri Filppula has two goals, in two games, but he has never proven to be a scorer in his career, thus far. Josh Bailey is a quality player, but he isn’t a true playmaker.
Defensively, is the same story, however they have been pretty good in their two games thus far.
They only allowed two goals in the opener and four got in against the Rangers. We’ll see if they can continue to play defense in this one at home.
NHL Betting Trends:
- San Jose is 4-2 SU against the Islanders on the road
- Islanders are 1-7 in their last 8 games against Western Conference opponents
Free New York Islanders vs. San Jose Sharks NHL Prediction:
The Sharks are a bit too big of favorites, but there is some value on the over/under line. I like the Sharks to get a few goals in against the Islanders, but look for the Islanders to struggle putting the puck in the net against Martin Jones.
This is the first game of a bit of a long east coast road trip, the Sharks will look to get off on the right foot.
