Upcoming California Derby in the Pacific Division

We have a very interesting game coming up, with two teams in different situations. Los Angeles Kings has had a bumpy season this far but ended their bad streak in the last round with a 4-0 win against Edmonton Oilers. On the other side, San Jose Sharks want to continue their best offensive stretches in the history of the franchise.

San Jose Sharks so far this season has 23 wins, 13 losses, 7 OT  wins and also coming in with the  5-2 win against Tampa Bay Lightning in the last round. Sharks played without defensemen Justin Braun, Marc-Edouard Vlasic, and Radim Simek, but the sharks are still the league’s highest-scoring team per 20 shots on goal.

Los Angeles Kings has thus far managed to win 17 games, lose 23, and 3 wins in OT, but in their last game against Edmonton Oilers, they won with 4-0.

But as we all know, there is no time for resting in the NHL and the LA Kings goalie Jonathan Quick told CBS Sports that he is already thinking of the next game:

“We’ve got another game, we go to San Jose, so there’s another division game, another team we’re chasing. Got to get ready for that game now.”

The two teams have already met each other twice this season and both have won with 3-2 in OT.

This game will be very interesting to watch, but as always FanTeam has a Main Event where you can pick players from all teams.
