8* Thursday NHL VAN/SJ
Vancouver vs. San Jose,
10/03/2013 22:00 EDT,
Score: 1 - 4
Money Line: -130 San Jose
San Jose -130
The San Jose Sharks open up their 2013/14 season at home to the Vancouver Canucks.
San Jose is the last team that Vancouver wants to see early on in the season. The Sharks swept the Canucks in last season's playoffs and have won their last seven meetings against Vancouver. It's not as if those wins weren't deserved either as San Jose outshot Vancouver in five of those seven matchups.
San Jose also has the luxury of home ice in this matchup, where they lost in regulation only twice in 24 homes games last season. The Sharks were as dominant as it gets at home while Vancouver lost 13 of their 24 matchups away from home.
San Jose has one of the deepest lineups in the league and should definitely have the edge in this one.
The Canucks are 0-5 in their last 5 road games. They're also 0-6 in their last 6 vs. Western Conference opponetns.
Take San Jose.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
