The Philadelphia Flyers and Arizona Coyotes meet Monday in NHL action at the Gila River Arena.
The Philadelphia Flyers could use a nice road win after losing five of their last eight games. The Philadelphia Flyers are averaging three goals per game and are scoring on 14.6 percent of their power play opportunities. Wayne Simmonds leads Philadelphia with seven goals, Claude Giroux has 10 assists and Jakub Voracek has 39 shots on goal. Defensively, the Philadelphia Flyers are allowing 3.9 goals per game and are killing 68.6 percent of their opponents power plays. Brian Elliott has given up 30 goals on 280 shots faced and Michal Neuvirth has allowed six goals on 22 shots. The Philadelphia Flyers have allowed three or more goals in six of their last nine games.
The Arizona Coyotes look to keep the puck rolling while building on their five-game winning streak. The Arizona Coyotes are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 14.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Clayton Keller leads Arizona with five goals, Alex Goligoski has six assists and Oliver Ekman-Larsson has 29 shots on goal.

The Flyers are 2-5 in their last 7 vs. Western Conference, 2-6 in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest and 2-10 in their last 12 Monday games. The Coyotes are 4-0 in their last 4 home games, 5-1 in their last 6 Monday games and 5-0 in their last 5 overall. The Flyers are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings and the over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings. The over is 21-8-3 in Flyers last 32 overall and the under is 9-4 in Coyotes last 13 overall.
The Philadelphia Flyers have played some of their best hockey on the road this season, but they've had no success against the Arizona Coyotes the past two seasons, and Arizona is one of the hotter teams in the league right now. The Arizona Coyotes have also been one of the more profitable teams so far this season and are an easy team to trust during this winning stretch because they get after it defensively. I'm going to ride the hot hand and back the Coyotes on their home ice.
