The San Jose Sharks will take on the Arizona Coyotes in a Pacific Division clash on April 1, 2023, at Mullett Arena in Tempe, AZ. Both teams have had difficult seasons, with the Sharks near the bottom of the Pacific Division and the Coyotes just above them. In this game, both teams will be looking to end their season on a high note, but only one team will come out on top.
San Jose Sharks:
The San Jose Sharks have struggled mightily this season, sitting near the bottom of the Pacific Division with a record of 21-39-15. Despite their struggles, they have been led by defenseman Erik Karlsson, who has been a bright spot on an otherwise disappointing team. The Sharks have had difficulty scoring goals this season, averaging only 2.87 goals per game, but they will be looking to change that in this game.
The Arizona Coyotes have also had a challenging season, with a record of 27-35-13, placing them just above the Sharks in the Pacific Division standings. They have been led by forward Clayton Keller, who has scored 36 goals and tallied 45 assists so far this season. The Coyotes have struggled defensively, allowing an average of 3.44 goals per game.
In this game, the Sharks have a good chance to upset the Coyotes and come away with a victory. Although they have struggled to score goals this season, they have been playing better lately, winning two of their last five games, including an overtime victory against the Vegas Golden Knights. On the other hand, the Coyotes have lost their last four games, including a 5-4 defeat to the Edmonton Oilers in their most recent game. If the Sharks can continue to improve their offensive output and get solid goaltending from James Reimer, who has won 12 games this season, they should be able to steal a win on the road against the Coyotes.
