Calgary vs. Arizona NHL Key Stats
The Flames have done well to score around 180 goals this season. Tyler Toffoli and Nazem Kadri have provided the team with returns with 90 goals contributions in between. There has been a dip in Kadri’s performance in the ongoing month. With no support, Toffoli has to work extra to score more in the upcoming game.
On the defensive front, the team has been average and has conceded three goals this season. Both goaltenders conceded over 3.5 goals per game on average this month. Thus, we can expect them the struggle in future games too.
In comparison, the Coyotes could score only 152 goals in the season. The team depends a lot upon Clayton Keller scoring goals, who has 53 goal involvements. Having scored five goals and assisted in seven this month, Keller is doing better, and we can expect the Coyotes to benefit from it in the upcoming game.
Their defense, however, has conceded around 3.5 goals per game this season but have shown resilience in the last few games. Goaltender Connor Ingram has been brilliant in the current month with a save percentage of 0.960 and only 1.5 goals conceded per game on average.
Flames vs. Coyotes Betting Prediction
The Coyotes come with a winning momentum into the game. They have won their last two home games and are likely to benefit from the home conditions in this one. The Coyotes have also shown better offensive and defensive attributes and are likely to make things difficult for the Flames.
The Flames have not scored enough in their last few outings and their defense has struggled to make enough saves which pushes them into a difficult situation. Further, with a poor away record to contend with, the Flames are likely to have a difficult time in this game.
Thus, we can expect the Coyotes to bring in players like Keller and Ingram into the mix to elevate their performance and win this game.
