The Coyotes look to stay undefeated as they head into Anaheim to take on the Ducks who have just one game on their record so far.
The Coyotes have been the early surprise of the NHL season as they have come away victorious in both of their games to kick things off and skate into Anaheim looking to go three for three. Arizona has a bright future, the in the desert or otherwise, as they have a slew of young prospects that are making an immediate difference with the big club as the likes of Max Domi and Anthony Duclair are finally up in an everyday role. In the mean time though the Coyotes are going to struggle to sustain this pace as they don't have the pieces to stay competitive in the Pacific division and while they will continue to upset teams along the way and perhaps make a charge at the playoffs I just don't see them being there when it comes down to it.

The Ducks dropped their season opener and haven't had an opportunity at redemption yet as the schedule makers was light on Anaheim through the first week of the season but now they get back at it at home against Arizona. Anaheim is projected to be a Cup contender this season and for good reason but the team on paper didn't live up to it on the ice in the team's first game as they lost to the Canucks and now have to regroup. Anaheim is going to win a lot of games this season and they are going to be pretty heavy favourites in a lot of them so it'll be tough to get any kind of price on them especially at home. The best bet here is on the total as I think the Ducks are going to fill the net on the Coyotes and we can bank on Arizona to hopefully chip in with one or two.
