The Arizona Coyotes look to keep rolling after winning five of their last seven games. The Arizona Coyotes are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 19.7 percent of their power plays. Shane Doan leads Arizona with 16 goals, Oliver Ekman-Larsson has 20 assists and Max Domi has 82 shots on goal. Defensively, the Arizona Coyotes are allowing three goals per game and are killing 77 percent of their power play chances. Mike Smith has allowed 59 goals on 598 shots faced and Anders Lindback has given up 39 goals on 364 shots. Lindback has allowed eight goals in his last three games.
The Devils are 1-5 in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest and 17-35 in their last 52 vs. a team with a winning record. The Coyotes are 4-0 in their last 4 vs. a team with a losing record and 6-21 in their last 27 vs. Metropolitan. The Devils are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Arizona.
The Devils have struggled big time against winning teams and they've won just one of their last five road trips to Arizona. The Coyotes are also on a little hot streak at the moment. Give me the home team at the reasonable price.
