The next game day of the NHL season starts with an interesting match between New Jersey and San Jose. The start of the game of these teams is scheduled for December 1 at 03:00 Moscow time. Our portal has prepared its forecast for this confrontation for you.

New Jersey Devils

New Jersey continues to believe in the progress of its youth, which is noticeably gaining momentum and is already bringing the team a good result.  After a good start, the Devils gave out a disastrous series of defeats, and recently they began to show a crazy attacking game again, which sometimes brings victories. So in the last match we managed to defeat Philadelphia at home with a score of 5:2.

San Jose Sharks

The Sharks' managers did an excellent job on the mistakes in the offseason, which took the team to a new level. "San Jose" gave a good start, where several important victories were achieved. After a slight decline due to the epidemic in the team, the San Jose hockey players slowly began to regain their confidence, so in previous matches they beat Carolina and Ottawa at home, after which they also slammed Chicago 0:2 on the road.

Forecast

It is difficult to single out a favorite in this match, because both teams have been looking good lately. The leaders of "San Jose" began to get in shape and bring their team victories. The Devils were able to make a high-quality start to the season, but now they often lose. I think more experienced guests will be able to win here.
