2017 NHL Playoff Odds: Edmonton Oilers vs San Jose Sharks Picks
The San Jose Sharks are in a lot of trouble right now. The are a game away from losing in the first round. This is not how the defending Western Conference champions saw their season ending. How will they respond?

The Sharks have played a lot of games over the last 2 seasons. That is good in that you’re battle-tested and experienced. But that also means you’re battle-worn. The Sharks have looked tired and worn down at a lot of points during this season and the NHL playoffs. That was the case in overtime in Game 5 against the Oilers, as the Sharks were out worked, outplayed and out-shot late in the game. Oscar Klefbom tied the game late in the third and David Desharnais scored at 18:15 of overtime to put the Sharks season on the brink.

The Oilers, meanwhile, feel incredible. The have seized control of the series for the first time since losing at home in Game 2 and giving up the home ice advantage. They are now on the doorstep of their first playoff series win in over a decade. The last series they won was way back in the 2006 playoffs against The Mighty Ducks of Anaheim. They have already proven they can go into San Jose’s building and get a win. They won in a shutout in Game 3. They also lost in a much, much more decisive shutout in Game 4 when they got spanked 7-0. 

I’m not ready to hand this series to Edmonton yet, although I do think they’re going to win it. I think that San Jose will represent and hold down the home ice tonight, then lose on the road in Game 7 in Edmonton. Tonight’s game will obviously be massive and I like their odds in front of their home fans.

Edmonton vs San Jose Game 5 Prediction

The Game: This game will come to you live from the famous San Jose Shark Tank. This will be the loudest you hear the crowd all year long, as their team is facing an elimination game. It’s going to be loud, but the Oilers have shown they can silence a crowd. But I like the home team tonight, as the Sharks will win and send the series back to Edmonton for a winner-take-all Game 7. 

Prediction: San Jose (-1.5) at Sports Interaction

Edmonton was 22-14-5 on the road this season, whereas San Jose was 26-11-4 . You can go ahead and throw all the numbers out into the garbage though. This is an elimination game in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Whoever wants it more and plays better will win. And tonight that will be San Jose.
