Sharks vs Penguins Betting Pick
The San Jose Sharks know they have to win this game or they will need to win 4 out of 5 games against the hottest team in the NHL. The Sharks got off to a rocky start on the road but once they settled in they were the Penguins equal. I expect the Sharks to come out with more energy and get off to a stronger start.
