The Vegas Golden Knights are in the opposite boat, as they should be the favorites to win Lord Stanley’s Cup behind the defending champ Lightning with this team being stacked from top to bottom.
San Jose Sharks
It is rough times in San Jose in 2021, as this Sharks team has not lived up to any preseason hype and although they have some nice pieces in place in terms of their roster, it remains to be seen how many of these guys will still be around come next year.
The Sharks do continue to fight though, as they come into this game on a 3 game winning streak although it has to be said that two of those wins came against the Ducks who currently sit in last place in the division.
Look out for Evander Kane here, as he is riding a 3 game goal scoring streak coming into this game and he has been the best overall offensive player for the Sharks this year with 11 goals and 12 assists.
It looks like Martin Jones will get the start here and he really has not been as bad as his stats would suggest as he is typically not the reason this team is losing games despite the mid 3’s GAA and the sub .900% save percentage.
Vegas Golden Knights
The Vegas Golden Knights are winners of 8 their last 10 contests and that is no fluke, as most fans and pundits expect this team to go deep in the playoffs this year. The last two games were especially impressive, as they took down the St. Louis Blues in back to back games to cement themselves as top dogs in the division.
Of the many reasons this team is succeeding I think the play of their veteran goalie Marc-Andre Fleury has been huge, as he comes into this Monday’s contest with a 1.81 goals against average and an equally stellar .935 % save percentage.
He is the projected starter here, so look for him to build upon his last start where he won the first star of the game stopping every shot except 11 versus the St. Louis Blues.

Free San Jose Sharks vs. Vegas Golden Knights NHL Prediction:
I thoroughly expect that the Golden Knights will stick to their task here to pick up a decisive win over a Sharks team we cannot overestimate because of the poor level of competition they have been beating. The Ducks are not the Golden Knights and I think we see this one over and done with come the end of the second period.
