Conor Garland leads Arizona with 19 goals, Nick Schmaltz has 31 assists and Oliver Ekman-Larsson has 112 shots on goal. Defensively, the Arizona Coyotes are allowing 2.7 goals per game and are killing 82.5 percent of their opponents power plays. Darcy Kuemper has given up 55 goals on 772 shots faced and Antti Raanta has allowed 69 goals on 814 shots. The Arizona Coyotes have allowed three or more goals in 10 of their last 12 games.

The Ottawa Senators need a win to snap a six-game losing streak. The Ottawa Senators are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 14.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Anthony Duclair leads Ottawa with 21 goals, Thomas Chabot has 25 assists and Brady Tkachuk has 211 shots on goal. Defensively, the Ottawa Senators are allowing 3.3 goals per game and are killing 78.8 percent of their opponents power plays.

The Coyotes are 1-5 in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest, 1-7 in their last 8 road games and 4-1 in their last 5 games as a road favorite. The Senators are 3-12 in their last 15 Thursday games, 1-4 in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 18-40 in their last 58 overall. The under is 5-2 in Coyotes last 7 overall. The under is 4-1 in Senators last 5 overall. The Coyotes are 5-0 in the last 5 meetings. The favorite is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.

The Arizona Coyotes aren't the most trustworthy team in the world, but they should be able to beat an Ottawa Senators team that's simply playing brutal hockey right now and is unbackable no matter how you slice it. The Coyotes have also won five straight against the Senators. Neither of these clubs can get out of their own way at the moment, but the Arizona Coyotes and the cheap price feels like the way to go.
