Sharks vs. Golden Knights watch guide: Projected lines, defensive pairs originally appeared on The San Jose Sharks look to make it five wins in a row, but they have a tough task ahead as they visit Sin City for their second game of the season against the Vegas Golden Knights. Team Teal recently swept three home games in four nights against the Tampa Bay Lighting, LA Kings, and Edmonton Oilers. Although their top defensive pair of Marc-Edouard Vlasic and Justin Braun has been sidelined with injuries, San Jose's blueline depth has helped the team go 4-0-0 so far in the month of January.

As they readied to reach the midway point of the season, the Edmonton Oilers were already in make-it-or-break-it territory when the calendar flipped to 2019. On the heels of a six-game losing skid to finish 2018, the Oilers headed out for a four-game road swing to kick off the new year knowing how dire it was to turn their fortunes immediately. The Oilers head into their Tuesday clash at the San Jose Sharks with the opportunity to claim three wins in their four-game sojourn.

As bittersweet as it is to admit, there are a lot of '90s things that maybe should be left in the dustbin of nostalgia. Some would argue that nu metal and Crystal Pepsi should be shuttled away into closets with Jnco jeans. That crowd would probably roll their eyes at the Los Angeles Kings (and Fox Sports West) having a lot of fun with '90s Night during Saturday's 4-0 win against the Edmonton Oilers.

Jonathan Quick and Anze Kopitar have been teammates since they were drafted together 13 1/2 years ago by the Los Angeles Kings, so the synchronicity of their milestone achievements Saturday night just felt right. Quick earned his 300th victory and Kopitar scored his 300th goal while Los Angeles escaped last place in the overall league standings with a 4-0 win over the Edmonton Oilers. The Kings' captain and their longtime starting goalie were the foundation of two Stanley Cup championship teams in Los Angeles, where they've been on the NHL roster together since late 2008.

The players representing the four divisions in the 2019 NHL All-Star Game been announced, but the full rosters are still to be determined. New this year is the “Last Men In” vote where fans will be able to select another forward or defenseman for each division. There are plenty of worthy names who did not make the initial list, so here is another shot for the likes of Brayden Point, Jeff Skinner, Nicklas Backstrom, Patrik Laine, and Anze Kopitar to find their way to San Jose.

Things could get even worse for Oilers

On paper, it’s not that big of a deal that the Oilers acquired two marginal defensemen in Brandon Manning and Alex Petrovic, even if giving up assets like Drake Caggiula still makes the end result seem like a disquieting loss. But when you dig deeper, it’s almost comical how head-scratching it is. McDavid said all the right things about Manning, but there’s no getting around their past: At best, McDavid and Manning can keep things professional.

Jake DeBrusk excited as 1st time Classic participant: "Not a bad time to have a good game" originally appeared on SOUTH BEND, Indiana – There are plenty of veteran Bruins players like Zdeno Chara and Patrice Bergeron that have been through the Winter Classic experience multiple times before, so this won't be their first outdoor hockey rodeo at the NHL level. But there will be plenty of young, and not-so-young, Bruins players where the New Year's Day game against the Chicago Blackhawks at Notre Dame Stadium will be their first chance to experience the postcard perfectness of the Winter Classic.

Trades: Oilers add two defenders, including McDavid nemesis Brandon Manning

After hiring Ken Hitchcock earlier this season the Edmonton Oilers went on a brief, Connor McDavid-driven hot streak that made it look like they might be turning their season around. Now that they have followed that up by losing six games in a row, and seven out of their past eight, they are once again on the outside of the Western Conference playoff picture and looking like another season of McDavid’s prime is on the verge of being completely wasted. In response, general manager Peter Chiarelli has attempted to go into job-saving mode and spent Sunday frantically rearranging the deck chairs on his sinking ship by making a pair of trades to address his team’s horrendous blue line.

Despite two goals from captain Connor McDavid, Edmonton's slide continued Saturday with a 7-4 setback to the San Jose Sharks. Even though McDavid, Leon Draisaitl and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins have combined for more than 45 percent of the Oilers' points this season, coach Ken Hitchcock, who took over behind the bench six weeks ago, continues to tout the need for grit over glitz. "When you play with skill, you play with high risk and we're not built that way," he said Sunday.

It seems as though no matter how poorly the Edmonton Oilers perform, Connor McDavid is still capable of making his team’s games a worthwhile watch. During the squad’s 7-4 loss on Saturday against the San Jose Sharks, the club’s captain provided those still hanging around Rogers Place with an unbelievable display of hand-eye coordination with six seconds remaining in the contest. The goal was his second of the game, and surely one of the more impressive efforts of the match.
