Last week I predicted the lines and stats for the San Jose Sharks’ forwards. This week I will analyze the defensive pairs and the very intriguing goalie matchup.

Once again so you don’t have to toggle between articles, I’ll put these right here again:

GP- Games Played

G- Goals

A- Assists

P- Points

PIM- Penalty Minutes

And since goalies have weird stats:

GAA- Goals Against Average

SV%- Save Percentage
