The NHL playoff is back in action on Saturday evening as the San Jose Sharks will face the Vegas Golden Knights in game two of their best-of-seven series at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Golden Knights were the better team so far as they have won the first game of this series by a remarkable score of 7-0.
San Jose Sharks Form
The San Jose Sharks enjoyed a good form during the regular season and they were able to keep that momentum as they thrashed Anaheim Ducks with a 4-0 in the first round of the playoffs. The Sharks were dominant in those games as they only conceded 4 goals. However, they were beaten by the Golden Knights with 7 goals in their net. Another worrying sign was the fact that they were not able to score in the first game at all. However, it is expected that the Sharks will not go down easily in these series. San Jose away form so far is 22-22 and they have averaged 2.68 goals per game and have allowed 2.93 goals per game in those games.
On the offensive side of their game, the Sharks have been in solid form so far as they are placed on the 7th spot in the league in scoring an average of 3.20 goals per game, converting on 24.0% of their chances. Their defensive stats are very solid so far as they are placed on the 4th spot in goals allowed, conceding an average of 2.20 goals per game, allowing teams to convert on 22.7% of their chances.
Vegas Golden Knights Form
The Golden Knights have shown their offensive firepower in game one in this series. Their perfect performance and the great result of 7-0 in the first game was a message that they are serious challengers this year. Their aim will be to march all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals. Vegas home form this year is 32-12 so far and they have averaged 3.55 goals per game and have allowed 2.34 goals per game in those games.
The Golden Knights offensive stats in the playoffs so far placed them at the 10th spot in scoring at 2.80 goals per game, converting on 18.2% of their chances. At the defensive side of their game, they have been very strong so far as they are placed on the 1st spot in goals allowed, letting in an average of 0.60 goals per game, allowing teams to convert on 5.6% of their chances.
It looks like the Golden Knights offensive firepower is finally coming out and I expect them to be also effective in this game. On the other side, I believe that the Sharks will show more concentration and more effort in order to get something from this game. However, based on the defensive home record and their recent offensive form, I expect that the Golden Knights will come on top in this game two of the series. The Sharks away from is 22-22 so far, and on the other side Golden Knights are unstoppable at home with a 32-12. Go for a Vegas Golden Knights to win game two of the series.
