The Minnesota Wild and the Arizona Coyotes meet in NHL action from the Gila River Arena on Wednesday night.
The Minnesota Wild will look to build on their 5-2 win over the Coyotes in their last matchup. Kirill Kaprizov leads the Wild in scoring with 37 points including a team-high 18 goals along with 19 assists while Kevin Fiala has 28 points with 15 goals and 13 assists. Mats Zuccarello has 10 goals and 17 assists while Joel Greenway has 20 assists and Joel Eriksson Ek has 14 goals as well this season. As a team, Minnesota is averaging 3 goals on 28.3 shots with a 16.9% success rate on the power play while allowing 2.7 goals on 30.7 shots with an 84.1% success rate on the PK this season.
The Arizona Coyotes will look to bounce back from their loss to the Wild in their last matchup. Phil Kessel leads the Coyotes in scoring with 34 points including a team-high 16 goals and 18 assists while Clayton Keller and Jakob Chychrun each have 32 points with 13 goals and 19 assists while Conor Garland also has 32 points with a team-high 22 assists this season. Nick Schmaltz and Christian Dvorak each have double-digit goal and assist tallies this season while Oliver Ekman-Larsson has 20 points with 18 assists as well on the year. As a team, Arizona is averaging 2.6 goals on 26.6 shots with a 20% success rate on the power play while allowing 3.1 goals on 30.8 shots with a 79.7% success rate on the PK this season.
Minnesota is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall and 4-0 in their last 4 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 8-1 in their last 9 games as a road favorite. Arizona is 1-6 in their last 7 games overall and 1-5 in their last 6 games as an underdog while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games played on 1 days rest. The over is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams in Arizona.
I get the case that could be made for the under here as Minnesota plays a strong defensive brand of hockey and Arizona usually plays defense first and relies on it to get the job done, but I think we see the offenses come to play once again on Wednesday. The last two meetings have combined for 14 goals, 7 in each, and I think we could see something similar on Wednesday. Give me the over.
