Game of the night:
Pittsburgh Penguins (8-3-2) @ San Jose Sharks (6-4-0)
10:30 ET… TV: Local Networks

Players to watch:
PIT- Kris Letang
Letang has been consistent and stellar on both ends of the ice thus far.
SJ- Joe Pavelski
Pavelski leads the team in points (11) and is currently on a six-game point streak.

Starting goaltenders:
PIT- Marc-Andre Fleury (2011-12 stats: 7-2-0, 1.86 GAA)
SJ- Antti Niemi (2011-12 stats: 4-2-0, 2.65 GAA)

Injury report:
PIT- Jordan Staal (lower body, questionable), Sidney Crosby and Tyler Kennedy (concussion, out), Zbynek Michalek (finger, out)
SJ- Antero Niittymaki (hip, out)

Game thoughts:
The Penguins and Sharks have been playing great hockey over the last few weeks, which means tonight’s game in the Bay Area should be a dandy. The Crosby-less Penguins have won five of six, but are a bit banged up. San Jose, who will be playing their first home game since Oct. 17, has also won five of six. Teams that usually come off successful road trips may have a clunker in their return home. But history shows the Sharks have the edge tonight. Pittsburgh has lost 11 of their last 13 meetings with Team Teal, and has not won in the Shark Tank since 1997. Go with San Jose.
Prediction: Sharks 3, Penguins 1

The rest of today’s predictions:
Islanders over Jets
Ducks over Rangers
Flyers over Devils
Blue Jackets over Maple Leafs
Blackhawks over Panthers
Red Wings over Flames
Canucks over Wild
Predators over Coyotes
Kings over Oilers
