New Jersey Devils vs San Jose Sharks - 11/30, 7:00 pm ET

Two mid-table sides in their respective divisions this season go head-to-head tonight looking to further improve their record for the season.

The Devils are currently 9-6 with four overtime games, sitting on 22 points and in sixth place in the Metropolitan division. San Jose on the other hand are 11-9 for the season so far with just the one overtime game.

Both teams have a negative goal difference scoring 57 times and conceding 58, while the Sharks have scored 55 times and conceded 58 times also. They currently sit fifth in the Pacific division.

New Jersey have a fine home record so far this season at 6-3-2, while the Sharks record on the road is positive with a 6-5 return.

Back the unders

Both of these sides haven't had the greatest of seasons so far and defensively have been a bit of a shambles, while offensively struggling too.

The Devils have conceded two or more goals in 13 of the last 14 NHL games they've played while conceding first in seven of their last nine home games in the league. On the contrary, they've scored two or more goals in nine of their last ten NHL games. 

Second periods haven't been good for them, failing to win that period in 11 of the last 12 games but they have been far better in third periods where they have not lost in nine of their last ten.

The low culmination of chances allows the club to score on average 2.8 goals in a match, and failures in defense lead to 2.9 goals per match.

With the Sharks not much better themselves, this game is set up for a low-scoring, entertaining affair.

St Louis Blues vs Tampa Bay Lightning - 11/30, 7:00 pm ET

Two of the top teams in the NHL this season go head-to-head in St Louis as they look to improve their record for the season too.

The Blues so far have racked up an 11-7 record with three overtime games to sit in second place in the Central division of the Western Conference, while Tampa Bay have managed to earn a 12-5 record with three overtime games so far this season to sit in third place in the Atlantic division.

Both teams have been strong going forward so far, with the Blues scoring 71 goals so far this season while conceding only 59. Tampa Bay have been arguably as good, scoring 64 and conceding just 56 for the season so far.

St Louis have been brilliant at home so far, with a record of 6-3-1 while the Lightning will be keen to extend their own impressive away run where they hold a record of 5-2-1 for the season thus far.

Goals galore!

This game is almost destined to have some goals in it, with two teams always looking to get on the front foot and attack as much as possible.

St Louis have been extra good in the third period of games recently, having scored in ten of the last eleven games during that time period and having not lost the third period in nine of the last ten NHL home games.

Defensively though they have conceded at least two goals in 13 of the last 14 games which will give plenty of encouragement to the visitors on the night.

Tampa Bay have not lost the second period in each of their last seven NHL games and have scored in nine out of ten of their last-second periods of play. They've managed to score two or more goals in each of their last eight games in the NHL, but defensively they have seen themselves concede in the third period in ten of their last 11 NHL away games.

Four of the Lightning's last six games have seen the overland while the Blues have seen it land in three of the last four games. With momentum high for the home side and the visitors desperate to bounce back after defeat in their last game, we should see great entertainment and plenty of goals in this one, so back the overs!
