Anaheim vs Arizona by GameChanger
In this game Anaheim Ducks will host Arizona Coyotes.
Anaheim Ducks are currently positioned 8 in NHL Western Conference but to be honest that's not realistic position for Anaheim. They started season with 4 losses but in that games they were outshooting opponents and they had a lot of chances but they just couldn't score. The main problem for Anaheim comes from line depth, they have 2 lines with great and highly productive players but other two lines are jsut low tier players, but for now these two productive lines seem to play well. Anaheim has all star players like Getzalf, Perry, Vermette, etc and they are their most productive players right now.
Arizona are one of the worst team in NHL right now and they are last in Western Conference. Biggest problem in Arizona's game is their goalies and defense. They conceded 37 goals in 10 games and their first goalie Smith is currently injured. Along with Smith, Bollard, Hanzal, Reider, Smith and Stone are injured so we can say that Arizona is going to have some problems with roster for this game.
Both teams aren't showing any play off worthy games but I would give Anaheim edge here. Escpecially with Arizona long injury list of the key palyers and their bad defensive game and struggling goalies. Anaheim is having some problems with line depth but I think that other players are gonna pick up their game. Anaheim is better team with better players and they are playing in front of home crowd so I think that Anaheim are having more than realistic chance to win here with 2 or more goals difference.
My pick: Anaheim wins by 2 or more goals difference.
