NHL Scores Pittsburgh Penguins vs. San Jose Sharks
The San Jose Sharks are heading out to Pittsburgh tonight to take on the Penguins. Unfortunately, there wasn't much good we could say about the Sharks in their last game as they were shut out 2-0 by the Detroit Red Wings. Although it was a very low-scoring game, the Red Wings' defensive corps played a lot better than the Sharks, that is for sure. Alternately, in the Penguins last game they defeated the Ottawa Senators by a score of 5-2.
In their 5-2 victory against the Senators, the Penguins had two scores from Evgeni Malkin along with goals from Patrick Guentzel, Patric Hornqvist, and Dominik Simon. Goalie Tristian Jarry recorded the win for Pittsburgh, as he was able to stop 24 out of 26 Ottawa shots.
Since their last game wasn't anything much to speak of, we'll just look at their averages. The Sharks currently get around 2.61 goals per game and they allow about 3.37 goals a game. This certainly doesn't bode well for their matchup tonight against the Penguins.
