The Dallas Stars and Arizona Coyotes meet Saturday in NHL action at the Gila River Arena.
The Dallas Stars look for another victory after winning five of their last six games. The Dallas Stars are averaging 2.6 goals per game and are scoring on 21.6 percent of their power play opportunities. Tyler Seguin leads Dallas with 22 goals, Alexander Radulov has 29 assists and Jamie Benn has 129 shots on goal. Defensively, the Dallas Stars are allowing 2.5 goals per game and are killing 83.6 percent of their opponents power plays. Ben Bishop has given up 76 goals on 996 shots faced and Anton Khudobin has allowed 49 goals on 644 shots. The Dallas Stars have allowed three or less goals in 10 of their last 11 games.
The Arizona Coyotes could use a win here to snap a five-game losing streak. The Arizona Coyotes are averaging 2.6 goals per game and are scoring on 17 percent of their power play opportunities. Brad Richardson leads Arizona with 11 goals, Clayton Keller has 26 assists and Oliver Ekman-Larsson has 122 shots on goal. Defensively, the Arizona Coyotes are allowing 2.9 goals per game and are killing 85.3 percent of their opponents power plays. Darcy Kuemper has given up 80 goals on 891 shots faced and Antti Raanta has allowed 33 goals on 351 shots. The Arizona Coyotes have allowed three or more goals in seven of their last 10 games.
The Stars are 12-25 in their last 37 road games, 6-2 in their last 8 games as a favorite and 5-1 in their last 6 overall. The Coyotes are 4-13 in their last 17 home games, 2-8 in their last 10 games as a home underdog and 0-5 in their last 5 overall. The under is 17-5-4 in Stars last 26 road games. The under is 4-1-1 in Coyotes last 6 home games. The Stars are 17-5 in the last 22 meetings and the home team is 21-7 in the last 28 meetings.
The home team has owned this series over the years, but the Dallas Stars are in much better form at the moment and are a team we've backed often during this winning stretch. The Stars are playing lights out consistent defense and that usually translates to success on the ice. The Arizona Coyotes are ice cold right now and haven't provided much value in the underdog role. The Stars also just beat the Coyotes a couple days ago and have won the last nine meetings against them overall. Give me the road team and the cheap price.
