Aaron Dell has given up 20 goals on 194 shots faced and Martin Jones has allowed 61 goals on 560 shots. The San Jose Sharks have allowed three or less goals in nine of their last 12 games.
The Arizona Coyotes look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Arizona Coyotes are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 18.4 percent of their power play opportunities. Conor Garland leads Arizona with 10 goals, Nick Schmaltz has 15 assists and Oliver Ekman-Larsson has 49 shots on goal. Defensively, the Arizona Coyotes are allowing 2.3 goals per game and are killing 80.3 percent of their opponents power plays. Darcy Kuemper has given up 35 goals on 518 shots faced and Antti Raanta has allowed 24 goals on 326 shots. The Arizona Coyotes have allowed three or less goals in 10 of their last 12 games.
The Sharks are 14-6 in their last 20 Saturday games, 5-1 in their last 6 vs. Pacific and 0-5 in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest. The Coyotes are 4-1 in their last 5 Saturday games, 4-1 in their last 5 vs. Pacific and 4-1 in their last 5 vs. Western Conference. The over is 10-2 in Sharks last 12 games playing on 0 days rest. The under is 6-2 in Coyotes last 8 overall. The Sharks are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Arizona and the road team is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings. The under is 32-15-5 in the last 52 meetings.
The San Jose Sharks have won six of the last nine meetings against the Coyotes and enter this contest playing brilliant hockey with wins in eight of their last 10 tries. The Arizona Coyotes have been hit or miss as of late and haven't had success on the end of back to backs dating back to last season. While the Arizona Coyotes are tough to bet against as long as the defense is holding up, especially at home, the Sharks aren't a team I'm stepping in front of right now. I'll side with the Sharks on the road.
