NHL: Penguins Unable to Solve Sharks

The San Jose Sharks, who are on a blistering streak as they have won seven of their past eight games, will host the Pittsburgh Penguins Tuesday night. If history holds true then the Sharks will enjoy this game as they are 17-4-1 in their last 22 games against the Pens.

Betting Trends
  • Logan Couture practiced Monday, but will not be in the lineup for the Sharks.
  • The UNDER is 9-2 in the Penguins' past 11 road games.
  • Patrick Marleau had two assists when these teams met last month.

The Sharks current hot streak has seen them outscore opponents 26-18 over their past eight, with four of their seven wins coming by one goal. Patrick Marleau has been turning it on for the Sharks as the 36-year old has three goals and four assists in his past four games.

Tuesday’s game is the start of a four-game Western road trip for the Penguins, which may not bode well for the team as they are just 5-4-1 away from the Consol Energy Center and have lost their past three road games. It seems that Sidney Crosby is finally coming around as he has tallied six points in the past five games after recording six in the nine previous.
