NHL Betting Preview
Anaheim Ducks at San Jose Sharks
Thursday, 10:35 pm Eastern
SBG Global Opening Line: Sharks - 170 , Total 5.5 Under – 130
The team with the best record in the NHL will try and bounce back from a rare loss as the San Jose Sharks host the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday. The Sharks had their nine-game winning streak snapped on Saturday as Dwayne Roloson stopped 41 shots to give the Oilers a 3-2 overtime win. The Sharks outshout the Oilers 43-17 but Roloson was fabulous. The Sharks still have the NHL’s best record at 22-3-2. “Our two losses here at home have been almost identical, where we have enough chances to win and end up losing in overtime,” Sharks coach Todd McLellan said. “You’d like to see us finish more around the net, but their goalie had something to do with that.” Even though the Sharks lost the game they did pick up a point with the overtime loss and they still have not lost in regulation at home this season.
