Do the Sharks bite the Kings out of the way?
- Title : Do the Sharks bite the Kings out of the way?
Sharks vs. Kings - that would have been a top game very often in the last few years.
Today, in tabular form, it's just a fight for the lower positions in the West Division. After all, it's a California derby and since the two teams hate each other, there should be a lot of fire in the game.
At least for the Kings it's also about the playoffs. Five points behind in one game less - there is still some catching up to do. For the Sharks, this is much more difficult with nine points behind.
The Sharks won the first duel of the two-game miniseries on Monday 2-1, but with more luck than skill. At the end of the day, the statistic said 23:42 shots were in favor of the kings, which is enough for a win with a normal course of play with a high probability.
Then the slightly better form of the Kings showed again, which should bring them back onto the ice on Wednesday. Since we do not assume that Martin Jones will achieve over 40 saves again for the Sharks, our forecast for San Jose vs. LA is a success for the away team.
The first face-off of this encounter is on Thursday night at 3:30 am in San Jose.
|Prediction||Los Angeles Kings to win|
