The Sharks are the Hottest Team in the League

The Senators will want to put their last performance behind them as quickly as possible but may have to wait a little longer for redemption. Ottawa takes on San Jose at the Shark Tank tonight with the Fish in the midst of a run that’s seen them win six of their last seven games.

SHARK BITES
  • The Sharks have posted just 2 OVERs all season long.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 14 of the Senators' last 19 games.
  • The Sharks are 7-2 in their last 9 games against the Atlantic Division.

Allowing eight goals was obviously not the plan heading into their last game with the Penguins but that’s exactly what happened to the Sens. Craig Anderson has now had two brutal starts in a row and it looks like Mike Condon (3-1-1, .945 save percentage) will be Ottawa’s guy until their No. 1 regains his confidence.

Heading into this game tonight, the Senators have actually won four straight against the Sharks and their last five matchups have all gone OVER. That said, the Sens and Sharks have been the two best UNDER teams in the league all season and far be it from me to predict that trend to change in So Cal this evening.

San Jose is the favorite in this one for good reason. The Sharks are the far superior team and are running extremely hot. Ottawa could be chum for the hungry Sharks tonight.
