San Jose is one of the league's underdogs. The California team cannot overcome the crisis, although their lineup is alright. From the beginning of the season, the Sharks have shown poor results and don't fight for the cup places. Nevertheless, David Quinn's team has made a good run by their standards, going undefeated for four games. They beat Anaheim and Arizona, 6-1 and 3-2 while losing to Vancouver and Los Angeles in overtime, 5-6 and 2-3, to move up to 13th place in the West.
Calgary is also showing modest results this season. A year ago, the Flames looked great in the smooth part of the season, but they are now sitting on the edge of the playoff zone. They failed seven games in the first half of November, then seemed to have stabilized, but now they're back in trouble. In five meetings in a row, the Red and Yellows couldn't win, although they earned a point or two three times. So Calgary dropped to ninth place in the Western Conference standings.
Expert Betting Tips
Calgary's ambition is much higher than San Jose's, but the Sharks approach their rivalry in a better condition. The Californian team has not lost in regulation time in their last four meetings, so we can also expect a decent performance from them. On the contrary, the Flames are in bad form right now. They failed five games and can't win on the road in six. Moreover, the Sharks were stronger in three of the last four of their matches.
San Jose will hardly qualify for the playoffs this season, but they have improved a bit lately. This is especially true for their offense, as they shot 19 goals (3.80 average per game) in the previous five games. Meanwhile, Calgary has a troubled defense, as they have conceded the same goals.
