    Toronto Maple Leafs vs. San Jose Sharks – Game #28 Preview & Projected Lines

    Toronto Maple Leafs (11-11-5, 25th in NHL) vs. San Jose Sharks (16-11-1, 15th in NHL)
    Puck drop: 7:30 p.m. EST
    Arena: Air Canada Centre
    Watch: TSN4

    Game Day Notes
    – The defending Western Conference champion San Jose Sharks appear to be working their way out of a Stanley Cup Final hangover, entering the game winners of seven of their last ten after starting the season 9-8-1. After a sluggish start offensively, the Sharks have improved to 2.7 goals per game in their last 10. If their 5v5 shooting percentage continues to rebound (currently 6.7%, 22nd in the NHL), the Sharks should ascend up the league table. They’re giving up just 2.18 goals per game (5th in the NHL) and 26.3 shots per game (2nd), and have conceded just 19 goals in their last 10 games.
    – With the addition of Mikkel Boedkker up front and David Schlemko on the backend, the Sharks feel they’re a deeper and faster team than they were last season.  They will pose a significant challenge for the Leafs as far as their zone exits. An interesting data dump by SportsLogIQ revealed that the Leafs have struggled to move the puck out of their zone with possession — their 20.7% dump-out rate is the sixth highest in the league. The Sharks are eighth in possession (52.1 CF%) with one of the league’s best shot differentials and thrive on a heavy forecheck. “[The Sharks] play a simple, direct, straight-ahead forecheck, grind-type game,” said Babcock today after the morning skate. “We’re going to have to keep them off our D.”
    “We’re a hard team to play against because we have a combination of skill, speed and being hard and heavy,” said Sharks head coach Pete DeBoer.


    – One of the areas holding the Sharks back offensively is their powerplay away from home, which is clicking at just 8.3% (28th in the NHL). That contrasts markedly with their man-advantage success at home (25.5%, third in the league).
    – After back-to-back six-goal games in mid-November, the Leafs have experienced a bit of a return to Earth offensively on home ice in the past three weeks; they’ve scored eight goals over their last four games at the ACC. That said, the Leafs are coming off a game which threw everything but the kitchen sink at Colorado’s Semyon Varlamov, dominating in shots, shot attempts and scoring chances despite a 3-1 loss. Toronto set an NHL season-high for shot attempts in a game (99) to go along with 52 shots on goal (a team season-high) against the Avalanche.
    – The trio of Patrick Marleau, Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski will pose a significant matchup challenge for the line of Leo Komarov – Nazem Kadri – Connor Brown; the Sharks’ top line has owned 59.29% of shot attempts and 67% of goals in 145 even strength minutes together. Pavelski’s recorded 11 points in his last 12, while Joe Thornton has five points in his last four after a bit of a slow start offensively (13 points in 24 games).
    – No lineup changes are expected for the Leafs from their Sunday night loss versus Colorado. Mike Babcock confirmed that Martin Marincin will not be available for the next little while after sustaining an injury versus Boston.
