The NHL is back on the schedule this weekend as the Arizona Coyotes will clash with the Los Angeles Kings.
The Coyotes are heading into this game after a 3-1 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.
On the other side, the Kings won in their last game against the Oilers with a score of 5-1.
Arizona Coyotes Form
The Coyotes are playing well this season. Moreover, they are now on the 2nd spot in the Pacific Division.
Also, they have the 2nd defensive record this season and it also their main weapon. However, it seems that their problem is they can’t score enough goals. And one example that confirms this is their 31 shots on goal against the Maple Leafs and scoring only 1 goal. Therefore, it is safe to say that they need to improve their offensive game.
On the offensive side of the game, Arizona is 25th is scoring as their average stands at 2.70 goals per game.
On the defensive side of the game, the Coyotes concede an average of 2.26 goals per game. And this record is the 1st in the league in scoring defence.
Los Angeles Kings Form
The Kings did not have a good start of the season. Moreover, this team is still on the bottom spot in their division. However, it seems that they have turned the tide as they won 4 of their last 5 games.
Also, in their last game, they managed to pull a surprise against the Oilers with a high 5-1 score.
The Kings showed that they can do it, it is just a matter now if they can do it consistently.
On the offensive side of the game, the Kings are 27th in scoring with an average of 2.64 goals per game.
On the other side of the game, the Kings concede an average of 3.45 goals.
The Coyotes has the strongest defence this season. But their offensive game is not at the needed level. The Kings showed potential in recent weeks. But will they be able to crush the commanding defence of Arizona? I am not sure. Therefore, I expect another under 5.5 goals Arizona game.
