The Arizona Coyotes and New Jersey Devils meet in NHL action from the Prudential Center on Saturday night.
The Arizona Coyotes will look to build on their three-game winning streak after a 2-0 victory over the New York Islanders in their last game. Clayton Keller leads the Coyotes with 15 points, including 4 goals and 11 assists, while Shayne Gostisbehere has 10 points with 4 goals and 6 assists. Nick Ritchie has 8 points with a team-high 6 goals and Matias Maccelli has 9 points with 8 assists. Lawson Crouse also has 8 points with 6 goals this season as well. Karel Vejmelka has gone 5-3-1 with a 3.06 GAA and a .915 save percentage, while Connor Ingram has gone 1-3 with a 4.42 GAA and a . 874 between the pipes for Arizona this season.
The New Jersey Devils will look to extend their current eight-game winning streak after a 4-3 win against the Senators last time out. Jesper Bratt leads the Devils with 13 assists as part of his 18 points, while Nico Hischier has 16 points with 8 goals and 8 assists. Dougie Hamilton also has 11 points with 3 goals and 8 assists, while Jack Hughes has 14 points with 4 goals and 10 assists. Mackenzie Blackwood has gone 4-2 with a 2.79 GAA and .880 save percentage, while Vitek Vanecek is 6-1 with a 2.33 GAA and .909 save percentage this season .
Arizona is 4-0 in their last 4 road games and 4-0 in their last 4 Eastern Conference games while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 Saturday games. New Jersey is 7-0 in their last 7 games following a win and 6-0 in their last 6 games against a losing team while the under is 5-0-1 in their last 6 games played during a rest day.
I understand the case being made either way here, but I’m leaning towards the coyotes. I liked Devils at first, and I’ve been critical of Devils at times in all honesty. But even though I’ve turned a corner and backed them up on some points, I’m not at a point where I want to put that kind of juice with New Jersey, and as much as I hate to use the D-word, I almost feel like the devils at cause a mess after being on this roll. It’s not a game I’m betting on, but there’s too much value here with a Coyotes team that has found ways to win games here and there.
