UPSET ALERT: Expecting the Rangers to shock Sharks at HP Pavilion
The Pick: NY Rangers +150
The San Jose Sharks have been one of the better teams in the NHL for the last month and a half and perhaps played the most entertaining game of the season against Vancouver Thursday night. The Sharks came back twice late in the third period but lost in a shootout. However, we are expecting a letdown for tonight's game against the NY Rangers. The Rangers have had three days to stew over their recent 5-2 loss at Anaheim. New York is playing for their playoff lives as they only hold a slim two point lead over ninth place Carolina. Annti Niemi has been brilliant for the Sharks in goal, but is expected to finally get a night off. That means a rusty Antero Nittymaki will be in goal for the Sharks. We realize that San Jose is a much better team, but on this night take the desperate NY Rangers for the win.
