The Edmonton Oilers and Arizona Coyotes meet Sunday in NHL action at the Gila River Arena.
The Edmonton Oilers look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Edmonton Oilers are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 32.4 percent of their power play opportunities. Leon Draisaitl leads Edmonton with 16 goals, Connor McDavid has 28 assists and James Neal has 58 shots on goal. Defensively, the Edmonton Oilers are allowing 2.7 goals per game and are killing 88 percent of their opponents power plays. Mike Smith has given up 32 goals on 355 shots faced and Mikko Koskinen has allowed 30 goals on 381 shots. The Edmonton Oilers have allowed two or less goals in five of their last eight games.
The Arizona Coyotes look for another win after winning five of their last seven games. The Arizona Coyotes are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 17.1 percent of their power play opportunities. Conor Garland leads Arizona with 10 goals, Nick Schmaltz has 14 assists and Oliver Ekman-Larsson has 48 shots on goal. Defensively, the Arizona Coyotes are allowing 2.2 goals per game and are killing 82.1 percent of their opponents power plays. Darcy Kuemper has given up 29 goals on 447 shots faced and Antti Raanta has allowed 22 goals on 281 shots. The Arizona Coyotes have allowed three or less goals in each of their last seven games.
The Coyotes are 15-31 in their last 46 games playing on 0 days rest, 7-3 in their last 10 vs. Western Conference and 4-1 in their last 5 vs. Pacific. The Oilers are 118-240 in their last 358 games as a road underdog, 31-77 in their last 108 games playing on 0 days rest and 3-8 in their last 11 vs. Western Conference. The over is 5-0-1 in Oilers last 6 overall. The under is 23-9-1 in Coyotes last 33 home games. The Oilers are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Arizona and 13-30 in the last 43 meetings. The road team is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings and the underdog is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The road team has won each of the last five meetings between the Oilers and Coyotes, but it's Arizona that enters this contest playing the better hockey over the last week or so. The Edmonton Oilers haven't handled playing on the end of back to backs well, and they're running into a Coyotes team that's playing great defense and finding ways to grind out victories. It's not the style you want to face in your second game in as many days. I'll take the Arizona Coyotes and the cheap price on their home ice.
