Sharks Facing Yet Another Game 7 at SAP Center

The Colorado Avalanche haven’t been to the Western Conference final since 2002, but they’ll have an opportunity to get back there if they can pick up a win over the San Jose Sharks in Game 7 of their second-round series tonight. Sportsbooks opened the Sharks as -140 home favorites with a total of 5.5.

Avalanche vs Sharks Game Center

Standout Stats

  • Despite squandering three separate one-goal leads in Game 6, the Avs managed to send the series back to California thanks to an overtime goal by captain Gabriel Landeskog to continue the pattern of the teams alternating wins and losses.
  • San Jose has won 18 of its last 20 games at home vs Colorado and erased a three-goal, third-period deficit in Game 7 of the opening round to win in overtime against the Vegas Golden Knights.
  • Captain Joe Pavelski, who was injured in that game against the Golden Knights, said he was close to returning after skating with the team on Monday and was deemed a game-time decision by Sharks head coach Peter DeBoer.
  • Colorado is 3-0 SU in overtime this postseason after dropping 14 of 19 beyond regulation during the regular season.
  • Expect the Sharks to lean heavily on center Logan Couture tonight. Couture has 43 goals and 95 points in 109 career playoff games, including a league-high nine tallies this year.
  • Should bettors expect another OVER at SAP Center? In the Sharks’ past 11 home games, the OVER is 10-1 with an average combined score of 7.2 goals.

My best bet for Avalanche-Sharks

Sharks moneyline

While the Avalanche have had an excellent postseason, I think their ride ends tonight. San Jose has simply had Colorado’s number at home over the years and is a much different club at SAP Center.

Sharks netminder Martin Jones has shaken off some early postseason struggles, while Avs goalie Philipp Grubauer hasn’t fared nearly as well on the road compared to his numbers at home. Take the Sharks.
