Ian Cameron takes a look into the San Jose Sharks vs Florida Panthers clash for this evening. He finds some betting value and caps this article off with a free NHL pick.

San Jose Sharks vs Florida Panthers

The San Jose Sharks had lost three straight games including a 5-0 shutout home loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins prior to the start of their current Eastern road trip. It began on Tuesday night in Washington against the Capitals and the Sharks responded with their best game in quite some time as they controlled the proceedings in a 3-0 shutout win. The team got timely goals and had a much better defensive game while Martin Jones had a stellar performance in net after being pulled from the game on Saturday in their loss against Pittsburgh. San Jose’s core has remained largely unchanged from the team that went to the Stanley Cup Final last year as Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau, Joe Pavelski, Logan Couture, Tomas Hertl and Brent Burns all solidify that group and they have definitely underachieved to this point in the season. However, we saw San Jose bring an inspired and motivated effort to the ice in their win against a very good Washington team and it should provide a carryover effect as they make this trip to Florida to face the Panthers. 

Florida beat Tampa Bay 3-1 win in their last game on Monday night and have managed to remain competitive despite several key injuries up front to Jonathan Huberdeau, Nick Bjugstad and Jussi Jokinen. They have gotten offensive step up efforts from Jonathan Marchessault, Vincent Trocheck and Colton Sceviour to held withstand the absences of those three top forwards and they’ve been getting solid goaltending from the combo of Roberto Luongo and James Reimer. Florida has struggled to string wins together of late as they are 0-3 in their last 3 games following a win. San Jose got a lot of their confidence back in their last game and for my NHL Pick I expect it to fuel them to another road win here at a reasonable price on Thursday night.
