San Jose is in second place in the Pacific Division but a solid distance back of the Vegas Golden Knights. If the Sharks have really any shot at taking the division, they probably have to win Thursday night’s matchup – and any others the rest of the way vs. Vegas, which is the NHL betting favorite to win the Western Conference.

Season SeriesThe Pacific Division rivals have met just once – and this will be Vegas’ first-ever trip to San Jose. On Nov. 24 in Sin City, the Golden Knights beat the Sharks 5-4 in overtime. Jonathan Marchessault took a pass from Shea Theodore and poked the puck past Aaron Dell in OT for the win. William Karlsson scored two goals for Vegas, and Theodore and James Neal had a goal apiece. Vegas was up 4-1, but Sharks goals from Brent Burns, Chris Tierney and Mikkel Boedker in the second period tied the game at 4. Vegas received a boost when San Jose had a goal reversed early in the third period after Joonas Donskoi’s skate collided with goalie Malcolm Subban’s skate in the crease. There were four goalies used in the game, two by each team.
