NHL Scores Vancouver Canucks vs. San Jose Sharks
The San Jose Sharks hit the road tonight to take on the Vancouver Canucks. They are looking for a little bit of redemption, simply because they have already dropped two in a row. On the other hand, the Vancouver Canucks are doing much better than their San Jose counterparts; they have been red-hot, winning three out of their last four. Will San Jose be able to right the ship and steal a win here? Will the Canucks be able to continue their streak? Either way, it should be a fun game to watch and wager on.
The stats regarding San Jose continue to not look so good on paper. They come into this game against the Canucks with an average of 2.6 goals per game and they are giving up 3.3 goals per game. Unfortunately, they are primed for a loss against Vancouver, simply because they have a much better record. However, San Jose is not without their stars. Logan Couture has been a huge offensive asset this year, scoring 14 goals along with 22 assists. Erik Karlsson has also came into his own as one of San Jose's most reliable defensive threats.
The main goal of the Vancouver Canucks is to keep climbing the Pacific Division. They are scoring just about 3.3 goals per game, which is the polar opposite of how much San Jose has been giving up! Moreover, they are allowing an average of 3.06 goals to their competitors. The Canucks are Elias Pettersson, who has 29 goals and 21 assists. If he shows up to play, chances are it will be a long night for my Sharks.
