No Game 5 Home-Ice Advantage for Kings

Brent Burns San Jose Sharks Jonathan Quick Los Angeles Kings NHL

The San Jose Sharks take a 3-1 series lead back to Staples Center and will not be intimidated in the slightest after taking the first two games of the series there.

Shark Bites
  • The road team is 7-2 SU in the last nine meetings between the Sharks and Kings.
  • The Kings are 2-6 SU in their last eight games with one day off in between games.
  • UNDER has cashed in eight of the Sharks’ last 10 games on the road.

The Kings are presently -135 in moneyline markets at online book Bovada while the Sharks are +115 on the road. In totals markets, OVER 5 goals is presently EVEN odds while UNDER 5 goals is -120.

The Sharks rebounded from a 2-1 overtime loss in Game 3 with a 3-2 win at the SAP Center Wednesday night, earning themselves a 3-1 lead in the series. Patrick Marleau’s first of the postseason proved to the be the game winner as the Kings managed a pair late in the contest.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who had been following the league closely that San Jose was so good in L.A. in the opening two games. The Sharks were the best road team in the league all season long with a 28-10-3 record in their travels.

The flip side to that coin was their 18-20-3 record at home, but a dangerous road team can be a perilous opponent in the chase for the Stanley Cup.
