San Jose Sharks vs Pittsburgh
My bet will be Patrick Hornqvist to score a goal.
Tonight San Jose Sharks are hosting Pittsburgh Penguins.
San Jose is a team who regularly reached the playoffs in the past few seasons. But this season they are underperforming and are currently in 10th place in western conference. For me, their main problem is their defense. Niemi (GAA: 2.62, SV%: 0.913) isn't on the same level as in previous seasons and their defensmen also aren't very good, as they are conceding almost 3 goals per game this season. One of the main reason why I'm placing this bet is Sharks' current terrible home form. They lost 9 of their last 10 home games and they conceded 34 goals in that span.
Penguins on the other hand have Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin in their ranks, which makes them regular Stanley cup conteders. They aren't as good as in previous seasons, but are still in 4th place in eastern conference and they are currently in great form, winning 6 of their last 7 games. They scored 25 goals in that span, 7 of those were scored by Hornqivst. He is on fire right now and if I consider the fact that he is playing on the first line with Sidney Crosby and on the first powerplay unit, I believe he can keep it up.
All in all, Penguins are in much better form and their hottest player at the moment is Hornqvist, so I believe he can score again tonight. You can find this bet at Unibet and the odds stand at 3.05. Good luck!
