The Vancouver Canucks and Arizona Coyotes meet Sunday night at the Gila River Arena.

The Vancouver Canucks look to stay hot after winning five of their last seven games. The Canucks are averaging 2.8 gals and have scored 10 goals in their last three games. The Vancouver Canucks have one power play goal in their last six games and have won five straight when scoring at least three goals. Radim Vrbata leads Vancouver with 26 goals, Daniel Sedin has 46 assists and Henrik Sedin has 85 shots on goal. Defensively, the Canucks are allowing 2.7 goals and have allowed a power play goal in five of their last 10 games. Ryan Miller has allowed 102 goals on 1,170 shots faced and Eddie Lack has given up 71 goals on 869 shots.

The Arizona Coyotes look to snap a seven-game losing streak. The Coyotes are averaging two goals and have scored three goals in their last three games. The Arizona Coyotes have zero power play goals in their last five games and have won four of their last five games when scoring at least three goals. Oliver Ekman-Larsson leads Arizona with 19 goals, Sam Gagner has 22 assists and Martin Erat has 78 shots on goal. Defensively, the Coyotes are allowing 3.3 goals and haven’t allowed a power play goal in five of their last eight games. Mike Smith has allowed 159 goals on 1,585 shots faced and Mike McKenna has given up five goals on 34 shots.

The Canucks are 3-15 in their last 18 games playing on 0 days rest and 3-8 in their last 11 vs. Pacific. The Coyotes are 1-4 in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 14-37 in their last 51 vs. Western Conference. The Canucks are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings in Arizona.

Both of these teams have been flat out trash playing on the end of a back to back. Because of that, I'm going to take my chances with the plus money and the home team. 

Pick:
Arizona Coyotes +142
