The San Jose Sharks and the Vancouver Canucks will meet up to end the night of hockey. This match will drop the puck at approximately 10:00 PM Eastern time on Saturday.
Vancouver has started the season with a record of 16-12-4, that has them sitting in position in the Pacific Division. The Canucks are just one purpose. Vancouver is also only six points behind the division Coyotes. The Canucks are coming off a win in their past one and have won three of the last four.
San Jose has earned a record of 15-17-2 to start this year, which has them in sixth place of their Pacific Division out. After a start to the year, the Sharks fired Peter DeBoer, and it is their second match with their new coach. San Jose has lost six games in a row and will seem to turn it up .
The Canucks have had the better start but there’s still lots of time for San Jose to flip this around. This might be the game at which it finally turn using a win, although the Sharks are on a losing streak. These two teams are sitting and will look for a win to get nearer.

Although to pull away with a 4-2 triumph to prevent the sweep over the season collection vancouver assemble a solid performance in the last game of the season series.
November 2 San Jose hosted the very first game of the season’s collection. The Canucks jumped out to a early lead and never return. Elias Pettersson scored while Jake Virtanen, Bo Horvat along with Brock Boeser had two things. Thatcher Demko stopped 24 of the 26 shots he faced as the Canucks coasted over the street into a 5-2 win.
San Jose has dominated the Canucks winning twenty five of the fourteen games , over the last few seasons. Vancouver has fought on those seasons, but’ve seemed much better this year. The Sharks will seem to attempt to regain that advantage over the Canucks to end that slump. I expect San Jose to try and set the pace push and to try their way.
The Canucks special teams are off to a solid start this season. Vancouver’s power play has been able to capitalize on 31 of their 121 power play attempts, and it is very great for a 25.6 percent. The Canucks penalty ban continues to be on a roster, only allowing opponents 19 goals on 108 opportunities, which will be an 82.4 percent kill rate.

Also the Canucks will have no simple job going up from the Sharks strong penalty kill, although vancouver’s power play gives them a slight advantage in this . San Jose will look to find a way. I don’t expect either team to get a good deal of scoring chances on the power play When the Sharks can avoid taking a great deal of penalties .
Jacob Markstrom is expected to get the nod from the crease for Vancouver on Saturday night. Markstrom has gone. He’s made a save percentage of .918 along with a GAA of 2.58. Where he listed a 43 shooter shutout to help the Canucks get the win markstrom’s last start came against the Carolina Hurricanes.
I feel that Aaron Dell will get the start in net for the Sharks in this matchup. Dell has published a record of 3-4-1 on the season throughout his 8 starts. He has put up a .893 save commission along with a 3.32 GAA. The last performance of dell came in relief of Martin Jones from the Tampa Bay Lightning on December 7. Because San Jose took a loss, he ceased 14 of 17 shots in about 20 minutes of play.
The Canucks have an edge in this match with Markstrom starting in net. San Jose will seem to put a challenging functionality over the backend to set a limit on the number of shots which Vancouver gets. It may help the field When the Canucks offense can be held by the Sharks in check. Vancouver will look to get the pressure going early in often to acquire a lead like the very first game of the season collection.
San Jose is coming to this matchup about a six game losing streak, however I think that is ended by them with a win at home against the Canucks. I feel that they will discover a way, although the Sharks lost to Vancouver earlier in the summer. If the Canucks electricity play can be close down by San Jose and then provide a few support to Aaron Dell, I think they have a chance.
BetOnline has the Sharks. This implies that San Jose will win this match around 52 percent of the moment. I believe that with this game being hosted that this line should be bigger. All losing streaks come to an end and I think this one finishes on Saturday night, although san Jose is currently struggling.
