San Jose form
San Jose has been awful lately. It's been seven games since the Sharks last won. Back then, they beat Washington 4-1. Because of this long bad streak, the Sharks dropped to the penultimate position in the Pacific Division standings, nine points behind fourth-placed Los Angeles. In their last meeting, San Jose suffered a rather upsetting loss to Anaheim in a shootout.
The Islanders managed to earn five points in their last three games, registering two wins – over Boston and Seattle – and a loss to Montreal in a shootout. Those points did not help the team much nearer to the top-4, however, like Washington, who is trailing in the playoffs zone, is as many as 20 points ahead. It is unlikely that the Islanders can reduce the gap, especially with the extremely unstable game.
Expert Betting Tips
San Jose has every chance to end the black streak in the upcoming game. Yes, the Islanders have been looking good lately, but the Sharks have beaten the New Yorkers twice in the last three face-offs. Bookmakers could not decide on the favorite, we think that the home team will be stronger. We suggest betting on their double chance for relatively good odds.
