The Montreal Canadiens have a 1-3-1 score so far with 3 points. The San Jose Sharks have 2 points with a 1-3-0 score. The Canadiens have poorer stats to show against the Sharks. However, we expect that either team can win this game. No team has the definite upper hand here.
Jonathan Drouin leads the team in points (3) while Alex Galchenyuk leads the team in goals (1). As for the assists, Karl Alzner leads the team with a score of 2.
The Canadiens only won their opener against Buffalo. After that, it has just been losses. The Montreal Canadiens are on a four-game losing streak.
Montreal’s worries are more. Carey Price was expected to perform really well after such a handsome extension. Price has a save percentage of .885, which is not at all what we had in mind for the season’s start from Price.
The Sharks have won 8 out of the 9 last meetings with the Montreal Canadiens. So although they haven’t had a good start to the season, they still have hope for a comfortable win. Based on past history, that is.
SAP Center also speaks in favor of the Sharks. They currently have a 10-game win streak against the Canadiens since 2000. Their last defeat was an overtime loss in the 1999 season.
The Sharks will probably have a tough defense ready to soak up the shooting attempts from the Montreal Canadiens. Kevin Labanc leads the team in points and goals (scores of 4 and 3, respectively). Mikkel Boedker leads the team in assists (2). This is going to be the fifth and last game of the home games row for the Sharks. They better make it count.
