The Arizona Coyotes have had success against the Blues this season, so I wouldn't be so quick to write them off after one game. However, the Blues looked a little too comfortable last night and they've played some of their best hockey on the road. The Coyotes have also had major issues playing on the end of back to backs dating back to last season. I wouldn't put anything past the Coyotes bouncing back, but I'll lay the cheap price with the Blues.
