Anaheim is 17-54 in their last 71 games and 1-4 in their last 5 Tuesday games. The over is 8-0 in Anaheim’s last 8 games. Arizona is 20-49 in their last 69 games and 14-30 in their last 44 games following a win. The under is 5-1 in Arizona’s last 6 games. The road team is 5-1 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.
Both of these teams have struggled so far this season and they are both towards the bottom of the NHL standings. Arizona has lost three of their last five games, but they are coming off of a win, while Anaheim has lost four of their last five games and they are only 5-16-4 on the road. I like the Coyotes at home.
