Sharks Red Wings Game 6 Odds

May 10, 2011 | by Bryan | posted in Detroit Red Wings, San Jose Sharks, Western Conference

The odds were stacked against the detroit Red Wings two games ago. They were (and are) facing elimination tomorrow. Taking the puckline or canadian line doesn’t look good because every game has been decided by one goal.

So who do you choose choose?

Well we have San Jose +120 +1.5(-250) or Detroit -140 -1.5(+210).

Looking at the stats San Jose has been outshooting Detroit. I think Niemi has something to prove. He’s been here before he knows what it takes to win.

“Right now we need him to be better. It’s a simple as that. We need him to be better offensively and defensively, but again I’m talking about one individual. There are others on that line. There are a pair that are on that ice at that given time. There is a goaltender and there are a number of other people that have to pick up their play.” — Sharks coach Todd McLellan on Patrick Marleau and Antti Niemi

I also think away goalies are playing a much better game in these 2011 playoffs. I think San jose also would like to close this off and get ready for the Vancouver Canucks. So I am betting the moneyline on San Jose
