9* Sunday NHL PHX/SJ
Phoenix vs. San Jose,

Score: 1 - 4
Money Line: -152 San Jose
San Jose -152
The San Jose Sharks host the Phoenix Coyotes on Saturday night. The Sharks disposed of the Canucks in their season opener, while Radim Vrbata notched a hat trick for the Coyotes as they knocked off the Rangers.
We backed the Sharks in their first game of the year and we're going right back to the well. San Jose is the most dominant home team in the league, losing only twice in regulation on home ice last season.
The Sharks have now won seven straight at the Shark Tank, including a 5-0 run in the 2013 playoffs. Antti Niemi, who had 21 saves in the opener, is 22-2-4 with a 1.75 goals-against average at home since the beginning of last season.
Niemi was even better against Phoenix, as he went 3-0-1 with a 1.20 GAA and two shutouts against the Coyites in 2013.
On the other side of things, Phoenix was one of the worst road teams in the league last season. The Coyotes won just seven of their 24 games away from home. Phoenix is a measly 6-13-4 in San Jose since the beginning of the 2006-07 season.
The Sharks are 42-17 in their last 59 home games. They're also 15-6 in their last 21 games playing on 1 days rest.
This price is VERY reasonable. Take San Jose.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
