The Arizona Coyotes and Minnesota Wild meet Sunday in NHL action at the Xcel Energy Center.
The Arizona Coyotes look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Arizona Coyotes are averaging 2.6 goals per game and are scoring on 20.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Christian Dvorak leads Arizona with nine goals, Conor Garland has 14 assists and Jakob Chychrun has 67 shots on goal. Defensively, the Arizona Coyotes are allowing 2.9 goals per game and are killing 83.3 percent of their opponents power plays. Darcy Kuemper has given up 42 goals on 488 shots faced and Antti Raanta has given up 25 goals on 283 shots.
The Minnesota Wild look to build on their three game winning streak. The Minnesota Wild are averaging 3.1 goals per game and are scoring on 7.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Joel Eriksson Ek leads Minnesota with 10 goals, Jordan Greenway has 14 assists and Zach Parise has 52 shots on goal. Defensively, the Minnesota Wild are allowing 2.6 goals per game and are killing 84.3 percent of their opponents power plays. Cam Talbot has allowed 27 goals on 311 shots faced and Kaapo Kahkonen has allowed 32 goals on 408 shots.
The Coyotes are 8-21 in their last 29 road games and 7-19 in their last 26 games as a road underdog. The Wild are 6-0 in their last 6 home games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The under is 4-0 in Coyotes last 4 road games. The over is 9-3 in Wild last 12 overall. The Coyotes are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in Minnesota and 1-5 in the last 6 meetings.
As I've said many times in the past, the Arizona Coyotes are just one of those teams that let you down right when you're ready to give them some attention. The Coyotes have also been horrible on the road dating back to last season. The Minnesota Wild are coming off a solid week with three straight wins, and they've outscored the Coyotes 9-1 in the two victories against them this season. Early games also usually favor the home team. I'll lay the PL with the Wild on their home ice.
