The Los Angeles Kings are beginning to open up a bit of a lead atop the Pacific Division, but the activity taking place below them is starting to become pretty exciting. The San Jose Sharks are sitting in second place right now, but only 6 points separates them from the Calgary Flames at the bottom of the division. Calgary will have a chance to make that gap a little tighter when they host the Sharks at the Saddledome on Tuesday night.
Sharks @ Flames NHL Odds Game Information and Opening LinesDate/Time: Tuesday, December 08, 2015 9:00 PM ETVenue: Scotiabank SaddledomeOpening Lines: San Jose -103, Calgary -105(Live Stream Option)It has been a real up and down season so far for the San Jose Sharks (14-12-0). Just when it looks as though they are about to take off, they run into another losing skid that derails all the hard work they put in previously. They have recently followed up a6-game win streak with 4 losses in 5 games, which includes the 3-game skid that they are carrying into this one. Their last win actually came against the Flames, with a comfortable 5-2 win on home ice at the end of November. In the 3 games since that win, the goals have dried up somewhat, with only 4 goals scored in the 3 losses. This is becoming a very tough team to figure out, as their up and down play has seen all their stats slip down to the middle of the pack. When they are good, they look unbeatable, but they just don’t look good often enough.
