The St. Louis Blues and Arizona Coyotes meet Tuesday in NHL action at the Mullett Arena. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
The St. Louis Blues are averaging 3 goals per game and are scoring on 20.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Jordan Kyrou leads St. Louis with 26 goals, Robert Thomas has 37 assists, and Justin Faulk has 157 shots on goal. Defensively, the St. Louis Blues are allowing 3.6 goals per game and are killing 76.7 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Jordan Binnington has allowed 152 goals on 1,450 shots faced, and Thomas Greiss has given up 55 goals on 540 shots.
The Arizona Coyotes are averaging 2.6 goals per game and are scoring on 18.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Clayton Keller leads Arizona with 25 goals, Matias Maccell has 26 assists and Barrett Hayton has 132 shots on goal.

The Blues are 1-6 in their last 7 road games and 1-7 in their last 8 overall. The Coyotes are 1-4 in their last 5 home games and 26-59 in their last 85 overall. The over is 33-16-8 in Blues last 57 overall. The over is 4-1-1 in Coyotes last 6 overall. The Blues are 14-6 in the last 20 meetings in Arizona.
I’m not thrilled to back either of these teams, but the St. Louis Blues have shown us more this season overall, and they’re the more talented team as well. Home ice hasn’t meant much for the Arizona Coyotes this season, and I’d need more plus money to take them seriously here. Give me the Blues and the reasonable price.
