The Arizona Coyotes and Winnipeg Jets meet Monday in NHL action at the Bell MTS Place.
The Arizona Coyotes need a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Arizona Coyotes are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 19.6 percent of their power play opportunities. Conor Garland leads Arizona with 22 goals, Nick Schmaltz has 34 assists and Oliver Ekman-Larsson has 133 shots on goal. Defensively, the Arizona Coyotes are allowing 2.6 goals per game and are killing 82.7 percent of their opponents power plays. Darcy Kuemper has given up 62 goals on 870 shots faced and Antti Raanta has allowed 80 goals on 1,014 shots. The Arizona Coyotes have allowed three or more goals in 14 of their last 22 games.
The Winnipeg Jets look for a win after winning three of their last four games. The Winnipeg Jets are averaging three goals per game and are scoring on 19.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Kyle Connor leads Winnipeg with 36 goals, Mark Scheifele has 43 assists and Blake Wheeler has 176 shots on goal. Defensively, the Winnipeg Jets are allowing 2.9 goals per game and are killing 77.1 percent of their opponents power plays. Connor Hellebuyck has given up 136 goals on 1,720 shots faced and Laurent Brossoit has allowed 54 goals on 512 shots. The Winnipeg Jets have allowed two or less goals in 11 of their last 18 games.
The Coyotes are 6-1 in their last 7 Monday games, 6-1 in their last 7 games playing on 2 days rest and 3-13 in their last 16 road games. The Jets are 4-0 in their last 4 games as a favorite, 5-0 in their last 5 home games and 5-2 in their last 7 vs. Western Conference. The under is 8-3-1 in Coyotes last 12 overall. The under is 4-0 in Jets last 4 overall. The Coyotes are 1-10 in the last 11 meetings in Winnipeg and 5-15 in the last 20 meetings.
The Arizona Coyotes are a team I've pretty much given up on this season, and that's even more of the case with them in the underdog role and on the road, two things where they have issues getting wins. The Winnipeg Jets are coming off a highly productive week and have won five straight games at home. The home team has also won six of the last nine meetings between the Coyotes and Jets. I'll lay the cheap price with the Jets on their home ice.
