Sharks head to Winnipeg

The San Jose Sharks take their indifferent form on the road on Monday when they play the Jets at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg.

Tied for fourth in the Pacific Division with the Calgary Flames behind the Anaheim Ducks, Vancouver Canucks and Los Angeles Kings, the Sharks were hammered 7-2 by the St. Louis Blues over the weekend at the SAP Center.

T.J. Oshie scored a hat-trick and there were goals for Alexander Steen, Kevin Shattenkirk, Jaden Schwartz and Dmitrij Jaskin as the Blues continue to maintain third place in the Central Division behind the Nashville Predators and Chicago Blackhawks, but ahead of the Jets.

Winnipeg, meanwhile, continues to lurk and their 47 points would put them into the post-season were the standings to remain the same through the end of the campaign.

There’s a lot more hockey to be played, of course, but while the Canucks, Kings, Sharks and Flames take points off of each other, the Jets can take advantage.

The Jets are 18.00 to win the Central Division, with the Blues 3.75 and the Blackhawks 2.25.

Over in the Atlantic Division the Tampa Bay Lightning pulled even with the Montreal Canadiens following a 4-2 defeat of the Senators at the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa.

Steven Stamkos broke open the 2-2 tie with his 21st of the year and Tyler Johnson added his second of the game and the Lightning’s fourth in the third period to round out the scoring.

It’s now on to the Bell Centre in Montreal for Tampa Bay and Tuesday’s top of the table clash with the Canadiens.
