San Jose +105 at St. Louis O/U 5 
Recommendation: San Jose

The San Jose Sharks continue their post-All-Star Break, four-game road trip with a matchup against the St. Louis Blues tonight. The Sharks are in second place in the Pacific Division with 56 points and have won eight of their last 11 games. St. Louis is close to getting their full roster back from injury with only goaltender Jake Allen (knee) and Jaden Schwartz (ankle) out indefinitely. Schwartz has been out since mid-October but could be ready to join the club in a couple of weeks after showing positive signs during recent practices. The Blues have done well in the Central despite fighting the injury bug all season. They’ve won six of their last nine and trail second place Dallas by only three points with two games in hand. The Sharks have been a much better road team this season than at home, with a 16-7-2 record overall including three of their last four. Balanced scoring has been a strong spot for the Sharks with 15 different players scoring at least one goal over their last 10 games. Goaltender Martin Jones has won six of his last eight starts with a 2.37 goals against and a .916 save percentage within that stretch. St. Louis dominated the Sharks in last season’s two meetings; blowout wins by the same score of 7-2 within five days of each other. Usually regular season revenge isn't much of a factor in the NHL but to to lose in that manner, it will certainly be on the minds of veteran leaders Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau. I think the spot and the plus price warrants a play on the Sharks.
