The Arizona Coyotes and the Colorado Avalanche meet in NHL action from the Ball Arena on Wednesday night.

The Arizona Coyotes will look to build on their 3-2 win over the Avs in their last matchup. Conor Garland leads Arizona in scoring with 22 points coming on 8 goals and 14 assists while Clayton Keller is right behind with 20 points coming on 8 goals and 12 apples this season. Jakob Chychrun has 18 points with 7 goals and 11 assists while Phil Kessel and Christian Dvorak each have 18 points with Kessel logging 8 goals with 9 assists and Dvorak flipping the stats with his 9 goals and 8 assists. Nick Schmaltz has 16 points with 7 goals and 9 assists and Oliver Ekman-Larsson and Joel Oesterle each have 11 points with a combined 21 assists in the 22 combined points. Antti Raanta will start seeing more action with Darcy Kuemper on the shelf with an injury. Raanta is 4-3 with a 3.65 GAA in 7 appearances this season.

The Colorado Avalanche will be out to bounce back from their loss to Arizona last time out. Mikko Rantanen leads the charge with 25 points including 12 goals and 13 assists while Nathan MacKinnon has 22 points with a team-high 17 assists. Nazem Kadri and Samuel Girard each have 18 points with a combined 26 assists between the two while Gabriel Landeskog has 15 points with 6 goals and 9 assists. Brandon Saad, Andre Burakovsky and Cale Makar all have 14 points while Joonas Donskoi’s on 13 points and Devon Toews has 11 points this year. Philipp Grubauer’s made the majority of the starts in goal for Colorado, going 12-7 with 3 shutouts and a 2.11 GAA this season.

Arizona is 5-0 in their last 5 road games and 7-17 in their last 24 games following a win while the over is 14-6 in their last 20 games against a team with a winning record. Colorado is 20-9 in their last 29 games against a team with a losing record and 1-4 in their last 5 home games while the under is 6-2 in their last 8 games as a home favorite. Arizona is 1-4 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams.

The Coyotes got the win on the road last time out which is where a lot of Arizona’s recent success has come as of late. However, the Coyotes lost Darcy Kuemper to injury in that game, and Antti Raanta hasn’t seen a ton of game time for Arizona up to this point in the season and Colorado isn’t the team at the top of the list of teams I’d want to put that goalkeeper up against in his first start back. Colorado has to be ticked off with how the last game went and I look for a resounding response in the rematch so I’ll lay the -1.5 with Colorado in this matchup to get the ML price down here.
