Looking ahead at five guys to target in Week 18.

 

San Jose Sharks = Target

 

Games: 7 (5H/2A)

Favorable Matchups:

    – @ Edmonton

        > Worst defensive team

        > 7th most shots allowed per game

        > 47 goals allowed in last 12 games (3.92 GAA)

    – @ Calgary

        > 3rd worst defensive team

        > 9th worst PK

        > 32 goals allowed in last 10 games (3.20 GAA)

    – vs. Dallas

        > 6th worst defensive team

        > 8th most shots allowed per game

        > 40 goals allowed in 12 2014 games (3.33 GAA)

 

The Sharks have been a great source for fantasy points this season and this upcoming schedule will prove to be no different.  San Jose is one of five teams to play seven games during this span, five of which are at the Shark Tank.  No one on the Sharks is hotter than Joe Pavelski right now (one could argue in the entire league).  That top line of Pavelski, Joe Thornton and Brent Burns will continue to carry the mail until Logan Couture can return and add some more talent for Patrick Marleau to play with.

 

Columbus Blue Jackets = Consider

 

Games: 6 (4H/2A)

Favorable Matchups:
