San Jose Sharks
After victories over Winnipeg and Minnesota Sharks again gave up a little – the team lost to Florida and New Jersey in turn. And something tells me that today it will be hard enough to interrupt the series of failures, as on the other side of the ice there will be Rangers, who gained the shape. The visits to Madison Square Garden and the good times were not very good for Sharks – 4 of the last 5 face-to-face encounters in New York ended in victories by the home team – and now San Jose is noticeably weaker than in the past few seasons.
Against a highly motivated club from New York City, Bob Boughner’s wards shouldn’t have much faith in success. In addition, Sharks four games in a row can not defeat the Rangers, and in the first round of the house lost them 3-6.
New York Rangers
Rangers recently issued a series of four wins, which was a big event for them, because this season they alternate successful matches with failed ones. So even with a strong and creative line-up, the New Yorkers are still sweating the playoffs.
The Rangers were quite unexpectedly able to return to the playoffs – the David Quinn team won 9 wins in the last 12 games, which reduced the gap from Columbus to 5 points, while the Rangers played 2 games less. Of course, the whole fight is still ahead – Carolina, Islanders, and the same Columbus will say their word. On the whole, they have a pretty good home game in the season – in the 31st game on their ice the Rangers have not scored points only 13 times.
This season they have already met San Jose on the road – then it ended with a devastating victory of the New Yorkers (6-3), I think that today the hosts have every chance to repeat their success.
- San Jose Sharks: L. Couture, L. Couture, E. Kane, D. Prout, T. Hertl, M. Karlsson
- New York Rangers: M. Haley
Sharks vs Rangers Prediction
The club from NYC is stronger in principle, and he will have an order of magnitude more motivation. The New York team has gained a cruising stroke, it is incredibly hard to fight them now. Sharks after several successful matches again significantly reduced the speed, so the chances of success for the guests are low.
Our prediction: Rangers will win.
