One thing to note is that even though San Jose is 11-3-1 at home, they have 3 losses. So, the real key is whether the Jets will beat one of those few teams that can beat the Sharks on San Jose’s ice. The thinking here is that Winnipeg is. The best team in the Central Division right now has the defense to frustrate San Jose. Backing the Jets to get the job done on Dec. 20.
