The Arizona Coyotes bring NHL hockey to Rogers Place to face the Edmonton Oilers.
The Arizona Coyotes have had great success against the Edmonton Oilers and that trend continued in a 3-2, shootout victory on Friday and they face them again Sunday on the road which has to make the Yotes confident. The Coyotes scored twice in the SO with Oliver Ekman-Larsson scoring the first goal while Radim Vrbata tallied the winner for an impressive 43rd shootout goal which is an NHL record.

The Zona offense received goals in regulation from Shane Doan and Max Domi while Mike Smith was strong between the pipes with a 32 stop effort to improve to an amazing 14-1-1 against Edmonton which completely defies the odds while the Coyotes are an even more amazing 20-0-4 in the last 24 meetings with the Oilers which is head scratching.
Connor McDavid gave Edmonton a quick 1-0 lead a mere 1:31 in to the opening frame with Adam Larsson also lighting the lamp but despite 38 saves, Cam Talbot still absorbed the loss which ended the Oilers three game winning streak which was extra painful with Edmonton looking completely in control with a 2-0 lead but the Coyotes magic in this series took over.
The under is 2-0-3 in Coyotes last 5 vs. Pacific and the under is 3-0-1 in Coyotes last 4 in the second game of a home-and-home situation while the under is 3-0-3 in Coyotes last 6 vs. Western Conference. The under is 6-0 in Oilers last 6 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of less than .400 and the under is 4-0 in Oilers last 4 Sunday games while the Oilers are 1-7 in their last 8 after scoring 2 goals or less in their previous game. The Coyotes are 12-2 in the last 14 meetings in Edmonton and the home team is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings while the Coyotes are 25-5 in the last 30 meetings.
As we can see, the Coyotes put on their Superman suit when facing the Oilers which Edmonton could have won. I obviously lean Phoenix but no line is out…
