The Pacific Division will square off with the Metro Division this evening as the Arizona Coyotes pay a visit to Madison Square Garden in New York to rumble with the New York Rangers. The Rangers notched wins in both meetings last year. The Coyotes enter this game off a 3-1 loss at Buffalo, while the Rangers are off a 6-3 loss at Tampa Bay.

Coyotes Skid Is Now At Four

The Arizona Coyotes have been struggling again as they enter this game having lost their last four games in a row. The four-game slide is on the heels of a four-game winning streak, and they will be looking to get back on track in this one. Arizona is now at 13-17 on the year and in 7th place in the Pacific Division. Despite that, we do note that it took them all the way to February last season to reach 13 wins, so they have been an improved team this year. The Coyotes enter this game off a 3-1 loss to the Sabres on the road and scoring their lone goal was Christian Fischer, which was his 7th of the year.

Absorbing the loss to the Sabres was Darcy Kuemper, who allowed three goals on 33 shot attempts to fall to 4-9 with a 2.85 GAA. Adin Hill is slated to get the start in this one, and he has gone 4-2 with a 1.62 GAA, and a .939 save percentage on the year, including 3-0 with a 0.43 GAA and a .983 save percentage on the road. He has never faced the Rangers. The Coyotes check in at 29th in scoring, putting up 2.53 gpg and 7th in goals allowed at 2.77 gpg.

Rangers Can’t Slow Down The Lightning

The Tampa Bay Lightning have been the hottest team in the league of late and the New York Rangers were not able to slow them down. Back on Monday, the Rangers faced the Lightning on the road and they lost that game by a score of 6-3. At the time, they were Tampa Bay’s 7th victim in a row. For the Rangers, they have been struggling as they enter this game having lost six of their last eight games and they have averaged just 2.38 gpg over their last eight games. Scoring in the loss to the Bolts was Kevin Hayes, who scored twice and now has seven on the year and Jesper Fast, which was his 3rd of the year.

Taking the loss against the Bolts was Henrik Lundqvist, who allowed five goals on 35 shot attempts to fall to 10-12 with a 2.78 GAA and a .916 save percentage on the year, while here at home, he has gone 8-4 with a 2.06 GAA and a .936 save percentage. In his carer, he has gone 8-1 with a 1.96 GAA against the Coyotes. The Rangers check in at 26th in scoring, putting up 2.77 gpg and 21st in goals allowed at 3.23 gpg.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The New York Rangers have been struggling, but the Coyotes come in having lost their last four games in a row and Lundqvist has gone 8-1 with a 1.96 GAA in his carer against them. We also note that the Rangers have gone 8-2 in their last 10 home games overall, while Arizona is 1-10 in their last 11 games here at the Garden. It all points to a New York win in this one as the Coyotes lose their 5th in a row overall.

Prediction: New York -160

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

I will look for this one to go Under the Total. The Rangers have put up just 2.38 gpg over their last eight goals and they have allowed just 2.20 gpg here at home for the year. We also note that Lundqvist has a 1.96 GAA in his career against the Coyotes, and Arizona has averaged just 2.4 gpg on the road so far. The Under is 5-1 in New York’s last six games playing on three or more days rest and that seals the deal for me.

Prediction: Under 6
