San Jose Sharks

Trend: 9-1-1 UNDER in last 11

Next Games: @EDM, @CAL, vs. CHI

[sc:NHL240 ]Alex Stalock and Antti Niemi comprise one of the top goalie duos in the NHL. The top choice as starter remains to be Niemi but Stalock has shown talent in the few times he’s been called to mind the net. This January, Stalock has a .963 save percentage and two shutouts in five game appearances.

Meanwhile, the Sharks have won all four of Niemi’s recent starts. No wonder the Sharks are tied for 1st in the NHL in the last five games with 1.8 GAA. Sharks have only gone Over once in their last 11 games.
