Golden Knights at Sharks: Projected starting goalies
Marc-Andre Fleury (25-10-0, 2.04 GAA, .927 SV%, 5 SO) vs. Josef Korenar (3-5-0, 3.17 GAA, .899 SV%)
Fleury has rattled off eight straight victories since his last loss April 7 against the St. Louis Blues. He is 5-0-0 with a 1.60 GAA and .942 SV% with one shutout in five starts against the Sharks this season.

Golden Knights at Sharks: Odds, lines, predictions and picks
Golden Knights 4, Sharks 1
Money line (ML)
The Golden Knights (-225) will cost you two and a half times your potential return, and based upon their 7-0 record in seven outings this season, that seems like a sure-fire winner. Over the long haul, it’s a risky strategy, though.
Against the spread (ATS)
The GOLDEN KNIGHTS -1.5 (+105) are a much better play on the puck line.
Vegas is still trying to secure the No. 1 overall seed for the playoffs, and they’re two points clear of Colorado, although the Avs have a game in hand. Even though just one of Vegas’ past four wins was by 2 or more goals, the Knights are a better play here.
UNDER 6 (-110) is the play, as the Sharks are tired and probably can’t wait for the final horn to end this forgettable season. They’ll have difficulty slipping any past Fleury.
