The Calgary Flames and Arizona Coyotes meet Tuesday in the NHL action at the Mullett Arena. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Calgary Flames are averaging 3 goals per game and are scoring on 19.3 percent of their power play opportunities. Tyler Toffoli leads Calgary with 26 goals, Elias Lindholm has 36 assists and Nazem Kadri has 225 shots on goal. Defensively, the Calgary Flames are allowing 3 goals per game and are killing 81.3 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Jacob Markstrom has allowed 126 goals on 1,201 shots faced, and Dan Vladar has given up 67 goals on 621 shots.

The Arizona Coyotes are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 18.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Clayton Keller leads Arizona with 29 goals, Matias Maccell has 30 assists and Barrett Hayton has 145 shots on goal. Defensively, the Arizona Coyotes are allowing 3.5 goals per game and are killing 75 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Karel Vejmelka has given up 145 goals on 1,499 shots faced, and Connor Ingram has allowed 79 goals on 852 shots.

The Flames are 1-4 in their last 5 Tuesday games and 1-6 in their last 7 games following a win. The Coyotes are 16-37 in their last 53 games following a win and 54-112 in their last 166 overall. The under is 5-1 in Flames last 6 overall. The over is 4-1 in Coyotes last 5 home games. The Flames are 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in Arizona and 23-9 in the last 32 meetings. The favorite is 35-17 in the last 52 meetings. The home team is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings.

The Calgary Flames have trouble stringing wins together, but there’s no doubt they’re the better team here and should win. The Arizona Coyotes have been a mess much of the season, and they don’t make bettors money dating back to last year. The favorite has owned the meetings between these two teams. I’ll give the Flames the benefit of the doubt and lay the PL with the Flames.
