San Jose Sharks vs Vegas Golden Knights 2/16/2023 Best Picks, Odds and Predictions

On Thursday, February 16, 2023, at 10:00 PM ET, the San Jose Sharks will face off against the Vegas Golden Knights in NHL action at T-Mobile Arena, NV. Despite returning home from an eight-game road trip, the Sharks continued to struggle on their home ice, suffering a 3-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday. San Jose’s home record now stands at 5-13-7, while they have fared better on the road with a record of 12-14-4. In February, the Sharks have recorded two wins and two losses. Due to James Reimer’s illness and Kaapo Kahkonen’s injury, Aaron Dell (0-3-0, 2.71,.913) was given the starting goalie position, and he performed admirably, blocking 25 of the 27 shots he faced. Timo Meier was the only player to score for the Sharks, registering his 31st goal of the season, while Pittsburgh managed to score a goal in each period. Erik Karlsson failed to earn any points in the game, putting an end to his four-game point streak, during which he scored a total of nine points.

San Jose has struggled on both ends of the rink, ranking 29th in goals allowed per game and 21st in goals scored per game (3.67). The team’s offense has been inconsistent this month, with two games featuring four goals scored and two games with only one goal. However, the Sharks have excelled in penalty killing, with a success rate of 83.1%, placing them fourth in the league.

  • San Jose is 2-12 SU in their last 14 matches with the Golden Knights.
  • The San Jose Sharks are 6-14 SU in their last 20 games on the road.
  • The Sharks are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games on the road against Vegas.

The Vegas Golden Knights won 7-2 against the Anaheim Ducks, scoring five goals in the third period. This victory marked the start of a successful three-game homestand, making it the team’s third consecutive win. Despite a home record of 15-13-0, seven different players scored goals in the game, and seven individuals finished with two points each, including Phil Kessel, who now has six points over his last five games and scored his 11th goal of the year. All three shorthanded situations were successfully resolved by the penalty-killing teams, raising Vegas’s rank in this category to 17th with a success rate of 79.4%.

In goal, Adin Hill performed well, blocking 23 of 25 shots. Hill has a 12-5-1 record and a 2.55 goals against average, serving as Logan Thompson’s backup. Overall, Vegas is ranked tenth in goals against average this year. The team has scored 17 goals and allowed four goals in their three games in February.

  • The Vegas Golden knight are 5-2 SU in their last 7 meetings at home with the Sharks.
  • Vegas is 1-6 SU in their last 7 games against an opponent in the Pacific Division division.
  • The total stayed UNDER in 12 of the Golden Knights’ last 18 games played in February.

San Jose Sharks vs Vegas Golden Knights. The NHL pick for this game is the Vegas Golden Knights. The Golden Knights may appear to have an easy win ahead, but they should not forget their 5-2 defeat to the Sharks in November, where Thompson allowed three goals on 27 shots. In that game, the Sharks scored on the power play and came back from a third-period deficit to win. Thompson is unlikely to have forgotten that experience. However, the Sharks face a tough challenge against a Golden Knights team that has been in good form, scoring 17 goals in their last three games, while the Sharks only managed 10 in four games. Although Dell played well in the last game, he will have to lead the team in the next few games, which is not an ideal match-up for him. The predicted score for this game is an 8-3 win for the Vegas Golden Knights.
