Odds taken Feb. 19th at DraftKings

Sharks Get The Blues

When these two teams met on Thursday, the Sharks gained a 2-1 lead with 5:29 left in the second period and held it until there was 20 seconds left in regulation. That’s when Brayden Schenn banged in the tying goal for the Blues. David Perron gave St Louis a 3-2 victory with a minute to go in the overtime period.

It was the second straight 3-2 game for San Jose. Four of the Sharks’ past seven games have gone to extra time.

The Blues have played three one-goal games in succession. Three of their last five games extended beyond 60 minutes.

Sharks defenseman Erik Karlsson (lower body) and Blues defenseman Colton Parayko (undisclosed) both missed the game. Blues forward Ivan Barbashev left Thursday’s game with an ankle injury and was played on IR. Forward Nathan Walker was recalled from AHL Utica.

The puck drops at 7 PM EST at the Enterprise Center.

Best Bet: San Jose Sharks +1.5 (-160), 1 unit.

Devils Rolls, Sabres Stumble

The Devils are 2-0 since returning from their 15-day quarantine. They smacked the New York Rangers 5-2 and followed up with an impressive 3-2 verdict over the Boston Bruins.

New Jersey took three of four points from Buffalo when the teams met Jan. 30-31. The Sabres are 0-3 since coming back from their COVID shutdown, scoring just two goals in those three losses.

Buffalo has dropped four of the last five and eight of its last 10 games at New Jersey. The last four Sabres-Devils games all went over, with an average of eight goals per game.

The game time is 12:30 PM EST at the Prudential Center.

Best Bet: Over 5.5 goals (-121), 1 unit.
