The Sharks were messed up by the Wild in their last match, getting beat 8-4 to lose the two ends of the two-game set, and they’re on a five-game losing streak.
The Knights, on the other hand, have overwhelmed during a six-match victory streak, including a two-game beating of the Anaheim Ducks while scoring repeated to win them by 9-2. They have scored at least four goals in four straight away games and six of the past eight games.
While VGK is 5-0 in the initial five outings this season, three of the previous four successes have been by only one goal and might have gone in any case. This creates a dilemma when we are trying to pick a winner but it shouldn’t be a hard one.
Besides, VGK is ablaze offensively at the moment, and they’re worth playing a little bet on for this series opener.
So we will go with the Knights to win this tomorrow.
