The Vegas Golden Knights Travel to San Jose, in this the first game of their play off series.
Coming in to the Playoffs the Sharks seem to have some momentum. Winning their last 2 games, after losing 9 from 10 before that.
The Golden Knights on the other hand have lost their last 2 games, and have lost 7 from their last 8.
Looking at recent totals we see the Sharks last 5 going 3-2 to the OVER. Going back 10 games we see them 6-1-2 to the OVER.
The Golden Knights have gone 3-2 to the under in their last 5 and 6-4 to the under in their last 10.
Looking at the last 5 head to heads we see a 3-2 over trend. With the MOST RECENT 2 games both going OVER the total.
In fact, the last 2 games have produced a total combined goals of 17. Both games happened just last month.
Probable Goalies- Martin Jones will suit up for the Sharks, Holding a GAA of 2.95, and Marc Andre Fleury for the Knights with a GAA of 2.51.
If San Jose can score early against Marc Andre Fleury , I believe they end up slotting a few away.
This is a rivalry that usually produces a few goals on both sides, and with the total set at 6, Im taking the OVER.
