San Jose Sharks

The home team has won 5 of the last 6 between the two. Vegas has lost 4 of its last 5 in San Jose and 5 of its last 6 played on the road. At the same time, San Jose has won each of the last 4 second games of a home-and-home matchup. San Jose goalie Martin Jones faced a great deal of pressure when the two met on Wednesday, but at home San Jose should control the ice better and bounce back in a positive way. Final Score Prediction, San Jose Sharks win 5-3.
