The San Jose Sharks (18-22-5) play the second end of a two-game set with the Vegas Golden Knights (32-11-2) Wednesday with a 9:30 p.m. ET puck drop at T-Mobile Arena. Below, we analyze the Sharks-Golden Knights odds and lines, with NHL picks and predictions.

The Sharks fired out to a 2-0 lead Monday night against G Robin Lehner and the Knights, as they looked to make a winner out of LW Patrick Marleau in his historic 1,768th NHL game. The Sharks fizzled down the stretch and ended up losing their sixth consecutive outing 3-2 in a shootout.

The Golden Knights have picked up seven wins in a row, and they look to tie a franchise record with an eighth straight victory. Vegas scored 3 or more goals in five straight games, too, and it’s averaging 4.3 goals per game during the win streak.

Sharks at Golden Knights: Projected starting goalies

Josef Korenar (0-1-0, 2.45 GAA, .895 SV%) vs. Marc-Andre Fleury (20-10-0, 2.09 GAA, .925 SV%, 5 SO)

Korenar will make just his second NHL start and first since last Wednesday when he stopped 23 of 27 shots faced in a loss to the Anaheim Ducks. He was perfect in stopping all 4 shots he faced in one period of relief work against the Minnesota Wild Saturday.

Fleury looks to hit blackjack with his 21st win. He won each of his past three starts, and he is 4-0-0 with a 1.50 GAA and .943 SV% with one shutout against San Jose this season.

Sharks at Golden Knights: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Golden Knights 5, Sharks 2

Money line (ML)

The Golden Knights (-250) will cost you two and a half times your potential return. Let Monday serve as a cautionary tale, as the Sharks nearly cashed as huge underdogs in a shootout loss.

Against the spread (ATS)

The GOLDEN KNIGHTS -1.5 (-105) are a better value on the puck line, although each of their past three wins and four of the past five over the Sharks were by single-goal margins. Go lightly.

Over/Under (O/U)

The OVER 6 (+100) is a decent play at even money. As mentioned above, Vegas has scored north of 4 goals per game during its win streak. While the Sharks have posted just one Over (1-4-1) across their past six outings, the Over is worth a look.
