Montreal vs San Jose Sharks
I like in this game the visiting team. IMO the Sharks are way better side in this season and also in better momentum.
The Sharks are currently among play offs positions in their Western Conference, 7th right now with 20-16 overall and 8-8 on the road. IMO their season so far was far better than expected. But, although 50% away from home is decent, they have won just once out of previous five road games. But this surely can be improved now when they need to visit Montreal. I mean, the hosts are too weak lately. You won't find the team who lost more straight games to close 2017 than Montreal lost. Only the Canadians finished the 2017 with four straight losses. Plus they have scored just three goals overall in those four games. Though those have been on the road but no matter, the Canadians are poor also on their home ice where have been below 50%.
This lately weak Montreal offense most likely will continue tonight given on fact the Sharks have allowed only 92 goals in 36 games. San Jose is one of the just two teams who allowed less than 100 goals.
Starting goalie tonight for Sharks is Aaron Dell. He was pretty good as of late, better to say perfect and went 5-0 in last five starts with great 1.59 GAA and 0.951 save %.
