The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (37-27-8) at the San Jose Sharks (40-23-9 ; SBN Blog: Fear the Fin)

The Time: 10:30 PM EST

The Broadcast: TV - MSG+

Streaking Sharks: San Jose has won five of six games headed into this one. They’re second in the Pacific Division trailing the Vegas Golden Knights by eight points. Both the Knights and Sharks have played 72 games on the season and are both in action tonight.

San Jose has put together a good start to the month of March, with a 6-2-0 record. They’re piling up wins at the right time as the Pacific’s third place L.A. Kings try to enter the Stanley Cup Playoffs with a similar head full of steam.

The Sharks are a team driven by depth. They boast twelve players with 30+ points this season, including their first line center Joe Pavelski, their bearded beauties, Joe Thornton and Brent Burns, and of course the 2C Logan Couture. The Sharks’ scoring depth has proven invaluable to them this season, and it will have to continue to power them as we head down the stretch.

Devils: New Jersey lost to the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday. They were in San Jose all yesterday and had a day off. Word on Miles Wood’s availability should be announced some time after morning skate this morning.

No word on the starter for tonight as of yet.
