Arizona vs Anaheim (By: Mulder)
General manager Bob Murray is the new coach in Anaheim since a couple of weeks and they went back to the basics: playing solid 'D. And it is paying off!
Under Randy Carlyle, the Ducks allowed 29 (!) goals in their last 5 games. Under Murray they play hard 'D on the road and all four away games we did not see a game with more than four goals.
Their offense is already a problem this season, in fact, with 2.3 GF/G (!) they have the worst offense by far.
-Under is 5-1 in Ducks last 6 games playing on 1 days rest.
Coyotes are no powerhouse either offensive wise with just 2.6 goals per game. They play pretty hard 'D though, especially on the Kill. They had the best Kill for basically the entire season, but the Lightning, and that was eventually going to happen, are the new leaders now regarding the PK. However, a 84.4 PK% ( 2nd best ) is still monsterous though.
The Coyotes have at home also a great 50 SCGA ( 8th ).
So no wonder that..
-Under is 11-4-1 in Coyotes last 16 home games.
Also, Under is 5-0-1 in the last 6 meetings in Arizona.
Backed the under earlier this month between these two, have to go with it again.
