The Arizona Coyotes and the Edmonton Oilers meet in NHL action from Rogers Place on Wednesday night.
The Arizona Coyotes will try to snap a five-game losing skid after their 3-2 loss to Calgary last time out. Clayton Keller leads the Coyotes with 22 points including 7 goals and a team-high 15 assists while Shayne Gostisbehere has 17 points with 5 goals and 12 assists. JJ Moser has 13 points with 10 assists while Matias Maccelli has 17 points with 15 assists and Lawson Crouse has a team-high 10 goals on the year. Karel Vejmelka has gone 6-7-3 with a 3.03 GAA and a .912 save percentage while Connor Ingram has gone 1-5-1 with a 4.02 GAA and an .882 save percentage between the pipes for Arizona this season.
The Edmonton Oilers will look to rebound from a 3-2 loss to Washington in their last game. Connor McDavid leads the Oilers with 48 points including a team-high 22 goals and 26 assists while Leon Draisaitl has 42 points with 25 assists. Zach Hyman has 26 points with 9 goals and 17 assists while Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has 27 points with 11 goals and 16 assists. Jack Campbell’s posted a record of 7-6 with a 4.12 GAA and an .872 save percentage while Stuart Skinner’s gone 7-6 with a 2.93 GAA and a .916 save percentage in goal for Edmonton this season.
Arizona is 6-23 in their last 29 games against the Pacific division and 37-85 in their last 122 games overall while the under is 9-4 in their last 13 road games. Edmonton is 25-12 in their last 37 home games and 7-3 in their last 10 Wednesday games while the over is 6-2-1 in their last 9 home games.
I get the case to be made for an underdog in some spots, but the Edmonton Oilers are clearly the better team by a wide margin in this game. The Arizona Coyotes have gone back to doing Arizona Coyotes things where they lose games left and right and lose them convincingly no less. All in all, this feels like a relatively easy win for Edmonton so give me the Oilers on the -1.5 puck line here.
