The San Jose Sharks and the New York Islanders will both be gunning for a victory on Saturday when they meet at Barclays Center.

ABOUT THE SHARKS (3-3-0): Pavelski’s goal on Friday gave San Jose four players with at least two, while Melker Karlsson and Joonas Donskoi became the ninth and 10th members of the team to tally. Defenseman Justin Braun and Joe Thornton share the club lead with three assists apiece after notching two and one, respectively, versus New Jersey. Logan Couture, who is tied for first on the team with five points, has been kept off the scoresheet in four of his last five games.

ABOUT THE ISLANDERS (3-3-1): Mathew Barzal had a game he’ll never forget against the Rangers as he scored his first career goal in what was his ninth NHL contest. The 20-year-old center, who was the 16th overall pick in the 2015 draft, notched an assist at Los Angeles in the Islanders’ previous game for his first point. The Islanders are hoping to get their power play in gear as they broke through once against the Rangers after going 0-for-20 over their first six contests.

Oddsmakers opened the Canadiens as 133-moneyline favorites versus the Ducks, while the game’s total opened at 5½.

The San Jose Sharks began the road portion of their schedule with a bang and aim for a repeat performance when they continue their five-game trip Saturday against the New York Islanders. San Jose kicked off the season with a 2-3-0 homestand before posting a 3-0 triumph at New Jersey on Friday.

Martin Jones made 28 saves for his first regular-season shutout since Nov. 21 – also against the Devils – and captain Joe Pavelski scored in his second straight game as the Sharks recorded their third win in four contests. New York returns home following a 2-2-0 road trip that concluded Thursday with a 4-3 shootout victory over the New York Rangers. Captain John Tavares scored the decisive goal in the bonus format but failed to notch a point in regulation, extending his drought to five games. The Islanders are looking to sweep the season series after registering a 3-1 win on Oct. 14 at San Jose.

New York was a 4-3 winner in its last match on the road against the Rangers. They won as +111 underdogs, while the total score of 7 made winners of OVER bettors.

San Jose won its last outing, a 3-0 result against the Devils on October 20. Bettors who backed the Sharks at -133 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (3) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.
