It’s bounceback time for the Sharks after giving up four goals in the first 13 minutes on Saturday on their way to a 7-1 home loss against Tampa Bay. San Jose has responded well in the past following blowout losses like this, going 6-1 in its last seven following a home loss by three goals or more and 6-1 in their last seven after giving up five-plus goals. They should be fully focused as they open a tough four-game eastern road trip, especially after having three days to stew on that loss. They know they need to elevate their collective game with star defenseman Erik Karlsson likely out until the all-star break.
Although we lost a Capitals Team Total Under 2.5 last week in Boston, Washington managed just 17 shots in that game, and its recent offensive issues haven’t gotten any better. The Caps were blanked 1-0 at home Monday by Vegas, marking the sixth time in nine games they scored two goals or less. They’ve also lost six of their last nine at home, where they’ve posted just nine regulation time victories in 23 games this season. With potential for another low-scoring game here, we suggest considering the Under or the visiting Sharks.
