The end of the regulation season edges closer in the Western Conference this week. One of the main challengers for Stanley Cup glory will once again be the defending champions, and they could secure their berth in the postseason with victory on the road in San Jose.

The Avalanche comes into this game sitting sixth in the conference standings, but their recent form has been very strong. They have picked up eight wins from their last ten, and the Avalanche have lost just twice over that period. Meanwhile, only the Vegas Golden Knights have won more frequently on their travels throughout this season.

The San Jose Sharks will have the home advantage on Tuesday. They come into this game after winning each of their previous three. However, those are the only three victories that they have recorded over their previous ten. Meanwhile, they have recorded just eight home wins in 38 games at SAP Center this term.

Confidence certainly would have been taken from their previous outing, as they registered a fine 7-2 win on the road against the Arizona Coyotes. However, this looks like a clear step up in opposition. It also doesnโ€™t help their case that they have lost their previous four against the Avalanche.


The Avalanche ticks all the boxes for this showdown in the NHL on Tuesday. They have an excellent head-to-head record against the Sharks, and have been dominant on the road throughout the season.
