Ryan Getzlaf, Cam Fowler and Rickard Rakell each have 7 points with Fowler logging 2 goals and 5 assists while Getzlaf and Rakell each have a goals and 6 assists.

Conor Garland leads the Coyotes in scoring with 16 points coming on 7 goals and a team-high 9 assists while Christian Dvorak has 15 points with a team-high 9 goals with 6 assists. Nick Schmaltz has 14 points with 6 goals and 8 assists while Clayton Keller and Jakob Chychrun have 13 points apiece with Keller logging 5 goals with 8 assists and Chychrun’s logging 4 goals with 9 assists. Phil Kessel’s split his 12 points with 6 goals and 6 assists on the year.

Anaheim is 0-4 in their last 4 games overall and 10-21 in their last 31 games against a team with a losing record while the under is 11-4-1 in their last 16 games as an underdog. Arizona is 1-4 in their last 5 games overall and 1-4 in their last 5 home games while the over is 6-2-1 in their last 9 games as a favorite. Anaheim is 1-5 in the last 6 meetings between these two teams in Arizona.
I’m not trying to get behind either of these two teams right now as the Coyotes are just overpriced because of the matchup and the Ducks inefficiency in terms of scoring, but the Ducks also couldn’t find the back of the net if the other team was blindfolded. Give me the under here as I’d be surprised to see 4 goals in this one.
