The San Jose Sharks are looking for their first win of the season under new head coach David Quinn, who is returning to Madison Square Garden for the first time as an opponent’s coach after three seasons with the New York Rangers.

The Rangers have looked incredible to start the season, especially on the offensive side.

The Rangers are currently undefeated at home and the Sharks aren’t playing very confidently.

Can Rangers extend Sharks losing streak?

A rough start for the San Jose Sharks

Frankly, the San Jose Sharks aren’t a very threatening team and their roster doesn’t have as much talent as the Rangers, so tonight could be frustrating.

The Sharks are conceding 3.80 goals per game with a higher-than-expected 4.24. Madison Square Garden wasn’t much of a playground for San Jose. They say he’s 1-6 in his last 7 trips to the world’s most famous arena.

San Jose’s biggest problem at the moment is its goaltending. James Leimer and Capo his Kakonen started the season basically splitting time at the net. Leimer has started three of his five games, posting a .919 SV% and his 3.05 GAA on a 0-3-0 record. Kahkonen has started two games and is 0-2-0 with a .814 SV% and he has a 4.10 GAA. Sharks have to be much better at both if they want to win a hockey game.

The attack was also a massive struggle for the shark. They are currently the worst attacking team in the league with just 1.60 goals per game.

I’m not at all impressed with San Jose.This game could be a disaster for them.

New York Rangers can control play

The power play of the New York Rangers is what drives this team. Their first unit, consisting of Adam Fox, Chris Crider, Mika Zibanejad, Artemi Panarin and Vincent Trocek, was essentially unstoppable.

Overall, Rangers’ power plays are converted 33.3% of the time, but in general, New York are averaging 4.25 goals per game, 1.38 ahead of expectations.

Igor Shesterkin hasn’t started this season as well as he did last season, but he hasn’t lost a game yet and is posting .905 SV%, 2.68 GAA and 0.8 GSAx on a 3-0-0 record. increase.

Artemi Panarin currently leads the league with 10 goals in four games, while Mika Zibanjad is fourth with eight goals in four games. The Rangers’ Big Gun is coming out of the gate hot and can really take advantage of weaker teams like the Sharks.

Expect the star-studded New York team to control the pace of play for the entire 60 minutes.

Shark vs. Rangers Pick

The Rangers have been very impressive in their first four games. They haven’t had much trouble generating their offense, and currently have the second-most shots averaged per game with him averaging 39.5.

The Shark offense can’t keep up with Rangers’ production and can fall behind very early on in this game.

San Jose have conceded 10 goals in their last two games against not-so-dangerous opponents, so tonight will be a very tough test.

I think the Rangers will come out with a bang and keep their feet on the gas all night long. I like the Rangers covering the pack line.

Choose: New York Rangers -1.5 (+100)
