The New Jersey Devils take on the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday in Glendale, Arizona, at the Gila River Arena. The Devils are on a six-game losing streak, losing to the Dallas Stars in their last matchup. 

The Devils have had a terrible season so far. They are 9-16-5 on the season, with 23 points. New Jersey is led by Taylor Hall, who is their leading points-getter and assists leader. New Jersey has not gotten a great play out of their goaltenders, as their goaltenders have a combined 3.595 goals per game record at the moment. 

Arizona Coyotes are coming off of a loss to the Calgary Flames, but they have won three of their last five games. 

The Coyotes have had a good season so far, resulting in an 18-11-4 record and tied for first place in the Pacific Division with the Edmonton Oilers. Much of their success has to do with their goalkeeper Darcy Kuemper, who has the best goals allowed average in all of the NHL, only allowing an incredible 1.96 goals per game. Kuemper's play, combined with a great Arizona defense, has made them one of the best teams in all of the NHL.

The over is 16-13-1 for New York this season
Arizona is 21-12 ATS this season 
The over is 13-19-1 for the Coyotes this season. 

This game is a matchup of two teams who are on very different forms. The New Jersey Devils continue to be a struggling squad, not finding much rhythm on either end of the ice. The Coyotes are an incredibly talented team that have found consistency in their team. With the Coyotes talent, they will likely be able to come away with their win at home. Final Score Prediction, the Arizona Coyotes win 4-2.
