This may be a familiar refrain, but there's no rationale to predict the Sharks. They have not won on home ice since beating Seattle in February. This will be the eighth consecutive game in which they have failed to win. Inside their own backyard, this team is utterly dreadful. New York hasn't done too great on the road this season, but they have managed to win the first two games they have got to play away from home this month. Although they've been letting at least one goal per match while playing elsewhere this season, that is one goal less than what San Jose is allowing at home. Having said that, I predict a New York Islanders victory.
