San Jose Sharks
San Jose is one of the few teams in the league that did not even try to make the playoffs during the regular season. Californians are among the league's outsiders, showing fantastic results only sometimes. For example, at the junction of March and April, they suddenly decided to beat Winnipeg 3-0, Vegas 4-3, and Arizona 7-2. Only before that, they had nine consecutive defeats; after that, they had two more. With such weak results, betting on solving big problems is problematic. Therefore, David Quin's team is only in 14th place in the Western Conference standings.
Edmonton is coming to the start of the cup battles in great shape. During the regular season, the Oilers had good results, so they did not have to worry about their playoffs, but now they have improved and gotten to a different level. In the last 12 matches, Jay Woodcroft's wards have allowed only one defeat, and even that from Vegas in OT – 3:4, and in the remaining 11 games, they won. Edmonton is in second place in the Western Conference standings.
Expert Betting Tips
San Jose and Edmonton are competitors of completely different levels in the regular season. For the Californians, there is only one task left in the current season – to finish it. The Oilers have a more intriguing scenery. They are playing for first place in the Western Conference to gain home-ice advantage until the Stanley Cup finals. Moreover, the Canadian team is in great shape, earning points in 12 games and winning 11. They beat the Sharks in six inter-fights in a row.
Edmonton has started preparations for the start of cup battles. In the last four matches, the Oilers have missed only two goals in total (0.50 on average per game).
