Avalanche at Sharks: Projected starting goalies

Philipp Grubauer (26-8-1, 1.94 GAA, .922 SV%, 6 SO) vs. Martin Jones (15-13-3, 3.22 GAA, .898 SV%, 1 SO)

Grubauer turned aside all 21 shots he faced Friday against the visiting Sharks and picked up his sixth shutout of the season. The Avs netminder is second in the NHL in shutouts behind only Semyon Varlamov of the New York Islanders. Grubauer has won six of his past seven outings dating back to March 29.

Jones was on the short end of that 3-0 shutout loss in Denver, as he made 33 saves on 35 shots. He is 1-3-0 with a 3.80 GAA and .898 SV% in his four starts against Colorado this season.

Avalanche at Sharks: Odds, lines, predictions and picks


Avalanche 5, Sharks 2

Money line (ML)

The Avalanche (-275) will cost you nearly three times your potential return. While Colorado has dominated this series and is clearly the better team, that’s just too risky on the road.

Against the spread (ATS)

The AVALANCHE -1.5 (-110) are a much better play on the puck line. They have won three games in a row against the Sharks while covering the puck line in two of those outings.

They’re 5-1 in six meetings with the Sharks this season and won by 2 or more goals in four of those contests.

Over/Under (O/U)

The OVER 6 (-110) is the lean here, mainly because of Jones. He has been very giving against the Avs.

The Over connected in five of the past six games for the Sharks, so they’ve been very giving against everyone.
