Monday March 9th and here at Pucking Hockey we have a Free NHL Hockey Pick Prediction between the Pittsburgh Penguins and San Jose Sharks.
For the last 5 seasons I have watched this Sharks team dominate in the regular season and choke in the playoffs. I used to love watching the Sharks score goal after goal during the regular season, they were the perfect games to take the over and the most fun to watch. Then come time for the playoffs, we then all had fun, making fun of them, due to the biggest choking team in NHL history.
However, this season has been anything but depressing. No captains, no leaders and the organization wonders why they are still 5 points out of the playoffs. Anaheim, Vancouver, Calgary and LA are too far ahead. Now 5 points doesn’t seem like much, but when the other teams are gathering points each night, and the Sharks are losing, well you get my point.
The Sharks (32-26-8) had posted back-to-back wins over Montreal and Vancouver before falling 3-2 to the Canucks on Saturday. Melker, Karlsson and Joe Thornton gave San Jose a 2-0 lead midway through the first period, but Todd McLellan’s group was shut out the rest of the way. Cause that’s not surprising….
Pittsburgh Looking Like Pittsburgh Again
Winners of 4 in their last 5, these Pittsburgh Penguins are shaping up to be a serious threat come playoff time. But, like the Sharks, they have been choking in the playoffs since their 2009 Stanley Cup championship.
But in my opinion, things are different for Pittsburgh now. New coach, new system and the acquisition of Patric Hornqvist has been living up to expectations. He has seven goals and nine points in Pittsburgh’s last seven games.
In those last 5 games the Penguins have scored 16 goals and allowed 11 against. This will be Pittsburgh’s 4th consecutive game on the road, going 2-1 on the road, so far. Their only loss was in Colorado, but winning in LA and Anaheim.
