On November 2, the San Jose Sharks will host Winnipeg Jets at SAP Arena San Jose. Will the Sharks break the series of defeats in front of their fans or will the Jets collect some points on the road? Let’sLet’s find out.
San Jose Sharks
This season Peter DeBoer’s men are performing weakly. In the standings of the Western Conference, they are only in 12th place, earned 9 points so far. Of the last five oppositions, they managed to win only once. This is because when they played away, they’ve had some strong opponents if you do not take into account the Ottawa Senators. In the last match, Sharks suffered a crushing defeat from Boston (1-5) on the road. Throughout the meeting, they were continually killing penalties, as they too often violated the rules, which led to the loss.
In the ranking table of the West, this team has not gone far from its upcoming rivals. At the moment, they take the 10th line and has 12 points in the asset. This team appears to be unstable, with varying success, alternating victories with defeats. In the previous confrontation, Jets lost to Anaheim Ducks with a huge score (4-7) on the road. Throughout the game, Paul Maurice’s wards tried to act more in the offence, playing more in the opponent’s zone, but they were always caught on counterattacks.
San Jose Sharks vs Winnipeg Jets prediction
In the last six personal meetings, the statistics are draws; both teams have three victories in the asset. However, it is worth considering the fact that two previous matches were in favour of San Jose. In 2019, Winnipeg has never beaten the sharks. The last game with the participation of these teams took place on March 13; then the Jets were defeated on the home ice with a minimal advantage in the score (4-5).
In this meeting, it’s worth to play the victory of San Jose Sharks taking into account overtime and a series of shootouts. To begin with, this is one of the best home clubs that will hit the ice with increased motivation, as they were not great in the last few games. They need to earn points to improve their tournament position and get into the playoff zone.
Winnipeg on the road shows extremely unstable results. Recently, wards Paul Maurice were unlucky to have several injuries. These were serious losses: a defender – Nathan Beaulieu and a scorer – Patrick Laine. Without these hockey players, the Jets are unlikely to compete with their opponents.
Who wants to take an alternative bet, total over 6 looks like a good option. Both teams prefer to act aggressively, have a strong attacking potential, and often make mistakes in defence.
