Does OT Favor Sharks In Next Outing?

The San Jose Sharks and Nashville Predators are coming off a triple-overtime marathon of a game that lasted over 110 minute of ice-time. Though the sample size is small, the Sharks are a perfect 3-0 SU while allowing just two goals in their past three following a game that went to overtime.

Shark Bites
  • The Predators are 1-4 SU in their past five games in San Jose.
  • Pikka Penne has allowed just four goals on 74 shots in the past two games.
  • The UNDER s 7-2 in the past nine meetings between the Sharks and Predators in San Jose

Clearly home ice advantage is a big thing in this series, as the home team is 4-0 while outscroing their opponents 16-8. That trend has also seen the Sharks improve to 3-0 in their past three games at the SAP Center after a 2-1 OT loss to the LA Kings in the first round.

If you’re a Predators supporter, you need to be wondering if this gruelling postseason schedule is going to catch up to them. The Preds have played every other day since the start of the Playoffs and Saturday will be their 11th game in 22 days.
