The Arizona Coyotes need a win in order to snap a five-game losing streak. The Arizona Coyotes are averaging 2.6 goals per game and are scoring on 18.2 percent of their power plays. Shane Doan leads Arizona with 19 goals, Oliver Ekman-Larsson has 23 assists and Anthony Duclair has 68 shots on goal. Defensively, the Arizona Coyotes are allowing 3.1 goals per game and are killing 77.2 percent of their power play chances. Mike Smith has allowed 59 goals on 598 shots faced and Louis Domingue has given up 49 goals on 578 shots. Domingue has allowed 12 goals in his last three games.
The Flames are 6-14 in their last 20 Friday games and 8-22 in their last 30 road games. The Coyotes are 19-40 in their last 59 games playing on 1 days rest and 20-43 in their last 63 home games. The Flames are 3-10 in the last 13 meetings in Arizona and 5-2 in the last 7 meetings overall.
I always find it hard to pay juice with a team that's on a decent sized losing streak. The Flames have found a little groove as of late and have beaten the Coyotes in five of the last seven meetings. I like the value of the plus money here.
