The Arizona Coyotes and Calgary Flames meet Sunday in NHL action at the Scotiabank Saddledome.

The Arizona Coyotes look for another victory after splitting their last eight games. The Arizona Coyotes are averaging 2.6 goals per game and are scoring on 16.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Brad Richardson leads Arizona with 11 goals, Clayton Keller has 21 assists and Oliver Ekman-Larsson has 94 shots on goal. Defensively, the Arizona Coyotes are allowing 2.8 goals per game and are killing 88.5 percent of their opponents power plays. Darcy Kuemper has given up 56 goals on 652 shots faced and Antti Raanta has allowed 33 goals on 351 shots. The Arizona Coyotes have allowed three or less goals in each of their last five games.

The Calgary Flames look to stay hot after winning six of their last seven games. The Calgary Flames are averaging 3.6 goals per game and are scoring on 21.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Johnny Gaudreau leads Calgary with 26 goals, Sean Monahan has 31 assists and Elias Lindholm has 112 shots on goal. Defensively, the Calgary Flames are allowing 2.8 goals per game and are killing 78.3 percent of their opponents power plays. David Rittich has given up 60 goals on 746 shots faced and Mike Smith has allowed 66 goals on 578 shots. The Calgary Flames have allowed three or less goals in eight of their last 10 games.

The Coyotes are 17-35 in their last 52 games playing on 0 days rest, 49-117 in their last 166 vs. a team with a winning record and 38-83 in their last 121 road games. The Flames are 10-4 in their last 14 home games, 13-5 in their last 18 Sunday games and 4-0 in their last 4 overall. The Coyotes are 4-11 in the last 15 meetings in Calgary and 3-8 in the last 11 meetings. The over is 6-1 in Flames last 7 overall. The over is 5-1 in Coyotes last 6 games playing on 0 days rest.

The Arizona Coyotes are finally starting to put together some nice wins after I spent weeks saying they were better than their record indicates. While this could be a good time to take advantage of the plus money, the Coyotes are on the end of a back to back, something they have little to no success on, and they're going up against one of the hotter teams in the league. The Calgary Flames not only blasted the Coyotes 6-1 in the last meeting, but their last seven wins have come by an average of 1.8 goals. This could be a spot where you can lay the PL with some confidence. 

Pick:
Calgary Flames -1.5
