The Arizona Coyotes look for consistency after splitting their last 10 games. The Arizona Coyotes are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 18.6 percent of their power plays. Shane Doan leads Arizona with 16 goals, Oliver Ekman-Larsson has 20 assists and Max Domi has 82 shots on goal.

The Sharks are 1-5 in their last 6 games playing on 2 days rest and 4-0 in their last 4 vs. Western Conference. The Coyotes are 4-0 in their last 4 games playing on 2 days rest and 12-40 in their last 52 vs. a team with a winning record. The Sharks are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Arizona and 5-2 in the last 7 meetings overall. 

Keys to the Game

Mitigate the Top Line – San Jose’s top line has always been incredibly effective. Even if the Coyotes can’t completely stop them, they need to win the other matchups that might be more favorable to them.

Don’t Lose Your Head – There were a lot of fireworks at the end of Monday night’s affair against the Buffalo Sabres. Nobody appears to have earned supplemental discipline, but the Coyotes are almost certainly on notice. They have to make sure their emotions don’t get the better of them.

Keep Working Early On – Arizona has done a very good job in the past few games of being aggressive early and taking shots. Even if it’s not leading to success right now, the goals will come if they keep pressing.

Injury Report

San Jose’s lone injury is Dainius Zubris, who is nonetheless considered probable for tonight’s game.

Arizona is still only missing Mike Smith and Joe Vitale, who are both on injured reserve.

San Jose Sharks at Ottawa Senators

The Sharks look to build on last night’s overtime victory in Toronto as they continue their Ontario road trip in Ottawa tonight to face the Senators.

Ottawa was spitting out road goals like a loose slot machine in the early part of the season, but an abrupt end to that binge made things difficult during a recent stretch in which five of six were played on opposing ice.

who have continued their puzzling success on the road while struggling at home.

The San Jose Sharks got through by the skin of their teeth on the road in Toronto last night as they gave up a two goal lead, then battled back from a two goal deficit, until scoring the overtime winner in what was a crazy swing of momentum type of game but typical of these Sharks. San Jose continues to find ways to make victories hard on themselves and we can expect another unpredictable effort tonight in a back to back in front of their back up goaltender who hasn’t had a ton of success this season. The Sharks sit in second place in the pacific division despite a 3-6-1 stretch in their last 10 contests but without anyone other than the Kings playing overly well this season it is San Jose’s spot to lose for the time being. The Sharks are an impressive 11-5-1 on the road this season while the Sens are 8-4-4 at the Canadian Tire Centre.

Ottawa heads into their Friday night encounter with the Sharks looking to improve on their 16-11-5 record and reclaim one of the top three seeds in the Atlantic but with a 4-6 mark in their last 10 they also haven’t been playing their best hockey of late. The Sens went with Andrew Hammond against the Caps on Wednesday night and while he played well the Sens didn’t get him enough support and ultimately the Capitals took a 2-1 victory and left Ottawa empty handed. The Sens are in a good spot here though as the Sharks are playing in a back to back after going to overtime with Toronto, are putting in Alex Stalock, and conceded four goals in a victory that left them emotionally and physically drained

San Jose Sharks at Montreal Canadiens

The San Jose Sharks travel to the Bell Centre to take the ice with the Montreal Canadiens.

The San Jose Sharks have been in struggle mode and need to snap out of their funk soon. The Sharks have dropped six consecutive contests following a 2-0 defeat to the Minnesota Wild on Saturday night. The offense stalled even with Devin Dubnyk out with injury for the Wild. It didn’t matter as Martin Jones and the Sharks defense were left to fend for themselves  but his 28 saves resulted in nothing but a loss with San Jose now standing at 14-14-1. Minnesota snapped a scoreless tie on a tally from Zach Parise at the 4:41 mark of the final frame with an empty netter off the stick of Mikko Koivu ending the drama. Minnesota saw Darcy Kuemper record his 6th career shutout with a 25 save performance to lift the Wild to 15-7-6.

The Ottawa Senators were dominated at both ends of the ice with their lone goal coming off the stick of  Jean-Gabriel Pageau in the second. Craig Anderson allowed all three goals on 31 shots before Chris Dredger came on to stop all eleven shots he faced as the Senators stand at 15-10-5.

Chicago Bulls at Boston Celtics

Chicago Bulls at Boston CelticsCheck WagerWeb and find the best betting site!!!!

The Boston Celtics and Chicago Bulls, bumper-to-bumper in a traffic-jammed Eastern Conference, arrive at Wednesday’s game with different perspectives on their travels to this point, even if both have similar destinations in their GPS.

The Chicago Bulls are looking to avoid losing their third straight game. The Celtics return home after a five-game road trip, where they won three games, and are looking forward to winning their fourth game in a row at home.

Chicago endured a meltdown against the Phoenix Suns on Monday night and hit a bit of a season low point. Asked about Chicago’s lack of consistency after the loss, Derrick Rose said, “If I could put a finger on it, I wish I could. But I can’t. I don’t have an answer for that.”

The Celtics, meanwhile, are feeling confident after a 111-93 win over the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday gave them wins in three of their final four games on a tough road trip, with the lone defeat coming after a feverish late-game rally against the San Antonio Spurs. As Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge tweeted after Monday’s game, “Best effort of the year. Really locked in tonight.”

The Celtics’ recent offensive outburst has lifted them to sixth in the NBA in team offense, joining the Los Angeles Clippers at 103.1 points per game. But with a stingy Boston defense that has surrendered more than 100 points just twice in its last seven, the point total has played UNDER in five of their last seven contests for totals bettors.

Despite owning a healthy 11-7 SU record, the Bulls have been a major disappointment to bettors this season, failing to post back-to-back ATS victories thus far en route to a dismal 6-12 ATS record, according to the OddsShark NBA Database. However, they have enjoyed plenty of success in recent meetings with the Celtics, picking up SU wins in 13 of their last 17 matchups overall, 14-2-1 ATS, and are undefeated in their last three visits to Boston.

Following Wednesday night’s contest, the Celtics await the Golden State Warriors, who arrive in town Friday night after keeping their record-setting win streak alive with a 131-123 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday night, covering as 6-point favorites. The Warriors have dominated Boston in recent clashes, winning five of their last six, 4-2 ATS, but the Celtics have covered the spread in two of their last three home dates with the defending NBA champions.

San Jose Sharks at Anaheim Ducks

The San Jose Sharks travel to the Honda Center to face the Anaheim Ducks for the third time.

After another subpar homestand, the San Jose Sharks appear to be in good position as they begin a road-heavy stretch in the schedule.

That’s because the Sharks have won seven in a row away from home heading into Friday night’s matchup with the struggling Anaheim Ducks.

The San Jose Sharks will be looking to get back in the win column after suffering a 5-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins at the SAP Center on Tuesday night. The Penguins had not won at San Jose since 1987 but were dominant at both ends of the ice with Phil Kessel scoring twice while Matt Cullen and David Perron also tallied. Evgeni Malkin scored and logged a pair of assists with Chris Kunitz also logging a pair of helpers to make a winner of Marc-Andre Fleury and his 33 stops for the 14-8-2 Pens. The Sharks lone goal came off the stick of Patrick Marleau while Martin Jones allowed four goals on 28 shots to fall to 14-10-0.

The Anaheim Ducks struggled to get going at the offensive end of the ice and it cost them a 2-1 loss to the visiting Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday at the Honda Center. The Lightning received a goal from Jonathan Marchessault with Jonathan Drouin also finding the back of the net and adding an assist. Ben Bishop was outstanding between the pipes who recorded 32 stops to lift Tampa Bay to 12-11-3 while improving to 6-0-1 lifetime against Anaheim. The Ducks goal came from Corey Perry but netminder John Gibson  couldn’t win it on his own with a 20 save effort still a losing one as the Ducks fell to 9-12-5.

The over is 6-0-2 in Sharks last 8 games playing on 2 days rest and the Sharks are 4-0 in their last 4 after scoring 2 goals or less in their previous game while the over is 4-0 in Sharks last 4 overall. The under is 3-0-2 in Ducks last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and the Ducks are 0-4 in their last 4 after allowing 2 goals or less in their previous game while going  3-13 in their last 16 games playing on 1 days rest.
