The Sharks ended up losing the opening game to Vegas and heading into play Friday night have to face them again. However, the Sharks are a team that does have  wide talent base that could come into the games and start to win the games. The problem is the Sharks are also a team that has to really improve how they are able to protect the net as the games have been difficult for the Sharks to keep the net protected.

In this game the Sharks are coming into it after playing the Vegas team at home the night before. However, the Sharks are a team that would have to battle through that game and hope they are able to come out on top. The downside is the offense for the Sharks was definitely lackluster in the opening game of the season and did not look improved from what they had to finish out the playoffs last season.

With the Ducks the team has managed to play decent in the game, but it was a very low scoring affair and it was a win against the Arizona Coyotes. The Coyotes offense has been very lacking and that could really hurt the Ducks in this game as the Sharks have a lot better offense and that definitely will be a switch for the Ducks whose offense has been lackluster as well.

The Ducks would have liked to have had a better offense in the game and that is a major sticking point for the offense as well. However, one thing that the Ducks the team would like to have is the return of Ryan Kesler who has been placed on the injured reserve on October second and last season he was one of the driving forces for the offense for the Ducks.

The Sharks offense has been impressive at times on the year, but not able to carry the puck to the net. However, the Ducks are a team that has been able to play  great defensively and that could contain the Sharks offense as Gibson has been a great goalie on the year and has really looked good on the season as well. Final Score Prediction, Anaheim Ducks win 3-1.
