The Sharks are now up 3-2 in this closely fought series against the Avs, and fans are optimistic that Joe Pavelski may return soon to give their team a much greater chance of closing this series out in Denver.
Sharks vs. Avalanche Stanley Cup Playoffs Betting Diagnosis Tomas Hertl has been the difference maker for Game 5 between Colorado and San Jose, scoring twice to provide the Sharks the 3-2 series lead along with their 2-1 win. Goalie Martin Jones stopped 21 shots on net to push his team of moving into the Western Conference final within a win.
The Avalanche could not catch a break to their top three goal scorers since Nathan MacKinnon, Gabriel Landeskog and Mikko Rantanen were held to just five shots altogether on goal. Without production from these three, the Avalanche may see their playoff run end tonight.
Philipp Grubauer made 37 saves in the loss which was a playoff career-high for the regular season backup netminder. The Avalanche are slight favorites at home tonight, but 53% of Sports Interaction bettors are placing their money on the Sharks to win tonight and take the sequence.
San Jose Sharks
Joe Pavelski is led to Denver for Game 6, but as of this writing it’s unknown if he will play the group tonight. Pavelski hasn’t played since Game 7 of the team’s series against the Vegas Golden Knights, when he was cross-checked and struck his head on the ice. Pavelski was skating since Wednesday.
Both of these clubs have alternated wins and losses during this show that the Sharks hope can alter tonight. Coach Peter DeBoer said to the press:
“We do not want to extend this if we do not need to, but there’s another team that is going to play a whole lot of despair because their season is at stake, so we know . Tough construction to acquire in, and we have got to go in and try and do that job.”
“As much as I loved my first Game 7, I’d like to forego it maybe this series,” Evander Kane stated. “Anytime you get an chance to close a team, you would like to do it.”
The Avalanche know it is do or die tonight, and they expect that home ice advantage will give them the push they need to force a game 7, although the possibility that Joe Pavelski yields is vain.
“He’s an all-star and he’s one of the best players in their team,” Gabriel Landeskog said. “I don’t know exactly how old he is — he is north of 30 and he is putting up points and producing each year, year in and year out. I mean, he’s an elite player. Obviously, he’s their captain, and he means a lot for their own group. You just saw how they rallied in Game 7 against the Golden Knights. So I’m convinced there will be a boost for them.
“But for us, it does not alter anything. We ready going into the series as if he was planning to play, and to be honest, we don’t really care who’s in or who’s out for them.”
