Sharks Continue To Drop Games as They Visit Montreal

Sharks Have Dropped Three in a Row, Five of Six

The first meeting this season between the San Jose Sharks and the Montreal Canadiens looks like a game that might be easy to predict for those who bet online.

The Sharks have lost three straight games and five out of their last six overall while Montreal has won two straight and three out of its last four games.

It’s going to be a battle of teams seemingly heading in different directions. Which one can pull out a win here and cash on the NHL betting odds?

Let’s check the latest NHL odds, stats, injury reports, and NHL lines for Sharks vs Canadiens. We’ve plenty of NHL betting odds for you to consider.

Goaltending Holding San Jose Back

Goal-scoring doesn’t seem to be the issue for the Sharks. They’ve scored 15 goals in their last four games and have Erik Karlsson leading the way, the fifth-highest points scorer in the league (32 points).

The problem for them has been keeping the puck out of their own net. There doesn’t seem to be any form of consistency in the crease. James Reimer is 5-8-2 in the net as the starter with a 3.00 GAA and a .903 save percentage.

When Reimer doesn’t get the start, they turn to Kaapo Kahkonen. Kahkonen is 2-5-2 with a 3.81 GAA and a .871 save percentage. Neither of them has been relatively productive and it results in them ranking towards the bottom of the league in team GAA this season.

There’s no solution in sight as they’ve allowed 17 goals in their last three and 26 in their last five losses. It’s hard to bet the Sharks with your NHL picks these days.

Canadiens Coming Off Shootout Victory

Montreal was in a heated battle against the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday, a matchup that wound up heading into a shootout before Montreal was able to seal the deal with a Kirby Dach goal.

Their top two scorers in Cole Caufield and Nick Suzuki also picked up goals in the shootout to get them the victory. These three are likely to be called upon once more as they try to defend home ice against the Sharks.

Dach, in particular, has been an underrated story this season in the NHL. He was traded to the Canadiens after playing 152 games with the Blackhawks and scoring 59 points.

In 21 games with Montreal, he’s collected four goals and 17 points. The Canadiens seem to be trending in the right direction overall, they just have to keep that momentum rolling forward.
