The Pacific Division meets the Metro Division this evening as the Arizona Coyotes duke it out with the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA. Arizona Enters this contest having lost their first 11 games of the year, while the Flyers have lost three of their five games. Goalie Probables: The Coyotes will be sending out Antti Raanta in this one and the Flyers will counter with Brian Elliott.

Another Loss For The Coyotes, Ties League Record

The Arizona Coyotes are on the verge of making history, but it is not the kind of history that any team wants. The Coyotes have started this season at 0-11 so far and if they lose this game then they will have the worst start by any team in league history. Right now, they are tied with the 1933/34 New York Rangers for the worst start in league history. Their latest loss came in New Jersey as they fell by a score of 4-3 on Saturday night. They did hold a 3-2 lead heading to the 3rd period, but the final frame was all New Jersey. Scoring in the loss was Christian Fischer, which was his 3rd of the year, Brendan Perlini, which was his 1st of the year and Clayton Keller, which was his team-leading 8th of the year. Taking the loss against the Devils was Louis Domingue, who is now 0-6 with a 4.33 GAA on the year, including 0-3 with a 4.16 GAA on the road. Antti Raanta is expected to get the call in this one and he has gone 0-2 with a 3.33 GAA on the year. In his career, he has gone 24-18 with a 2.65 GAA on the road and 5-4 with a 2.01 GAA during the month of October, while against the Metro Division he has gone 11-9 with a 2.67 GAA, including 2-2 with a 1.74 GAA against the Flyers.

The Coyotes have been very poor on offense this year as they come in ranked 28th in the league in scoring at 2.36 gpg, while also ranking 17th in shots taken (31.5 spg) and 16th in power play conversions, converting on 17.1.% of their chances. At the defensive end of the ice, they have been very poor as they come in ranked 31st in goals allowed, giving up 4.36 gpg, while also ranking 12th in shots allowed (31.5 spg) and 31st in penalty kill, allowing teams to convert on 31.0% of their chances.

Flyers Surprise Leafs On The Road

The Philadelphia Flyers have been struggling of late, but they come in off a nice 4-2 win over a good Toronto team on the road. Prior to that win, the Flyers had lost three of their previous four games after starting the year at 4-2. They are an improved team over last year, but still a bit inconsistent. Scoring for the Flyers in the win was Brandon Manning, which was his 1st of the year, Jakub Voracek, which was his 2nd of the year, Valtteri Filppula, which was his 5th of the year and Claude Giroux, which was his 6th of the year. Leading the Flyers this year has been Sean Couturier with seven goals, which Voracek leads them in points with 16. Grabbing the win against the Leafs was Brian Elliott, who stopped 28 of the 30 shots that he faced to move to 5-2 with a 3.14 GAA on the year, while here at home he has gone 2-1 with a 3.00 GAA. In his career, he has gone 107-71 with a 2.35 GAA in his home games and 26-18 with a 2.68 GAA during the month of October, while against the Pacific Division he has gone 38-36 with a 2.39 GAA and he is 9-2 with a 2.03 in his career against the Coyotes. The Flyers have gone 3-3 on the road so far this year.

The Flyers check in at 8th in the league in scoring at 3.45 gpg, while also ranking 10th in shots taken (33.0 spg) and 10th in power play conversions, converting on 21.4% of their chances. At the defensive end of the ice, they have been decent as they come in ranked 11th in goals allowed, giving up just 2.82 gpg, while also ranking 1st in shots allowed (28.3 spg) and 19th in penalty kill, allowing teams to convert on 20.0% of their chances.

Trends

Arizona is:

  • 42-92 in their last 134 when their opponent allows two goals or less in their previous game
  • 13-38 in their last 51 road games vs. a team with a winning home record

Philadelphia is:

  • 9-3 in their last 12 home games
  • The home team is 5-1 the last six games in this series  

The Philadelphia Flyers have been a bit inconsistent after a good start to their year, but they have a chance to get back on track in this one against an Arizona team that has yet to win a game, The Coyotes will play hard and they will eventually win a game, but I cannot see that happening in this one as the Flyers are the far better team with big edges on offense and in the crease, especially knowing that Elliott is 9-2 with a 2.03 GAA in his career against the Coyotes. The Flyers will be a part of history tonight as they hand the Coyotes their 12 straight loss to start the year, which will be a league record.  

Pick: Philadelphia
