The San Jose Sharks are second to bottom in the Pacific Division of the Western Conference, courtesy of a four-game losing streak.
The St. Louis Blues are even worse, currently on an eight-game losing streak and last in the Central Division of the Western Conference. They will now host this encounter at the Enterprise Center on Thursday (November 10).
Both teams will be eager to end their losing streak, especially the Blues, who have not seen a single victory in a very long time.
San Jose Sharks vs. St. Louis Blues: Betting Odds
San Jose finished sixth last season with an overall record of 32-37 and failed to qualify for the playoffs. The way they are playing now, it looks like it will be another long season without any chance of making it to the playoffs.
They have only three wins, but have eight losses and three overtime losses to their name. Those wins have come against the likes of the New York Rangers (3-2), the Philadelphia Sharks (3-0), and the Toronto Maple Leafs (4-3). They are now looking to find a way to win as they are on a four-game losing streak.
The St. Louis Blues seem to have no idea what is happening to them. They were a team who finished third in the division last season with an overall record of 49-22. But now, they find themselves last in the table as they are on an eight-game losing streak.
They started on a very positive note, winning their first three games of the season. Since then, they have failed to win a single game. They now have a chance to end that poor run with a win against the Sharks.
