Arizona vs Columbus (By: Artfeind)
Arizona Coyotes - Columbus Blue Jackets at the Gila River Arena in Phoenix
Arizona shaken by injuries, so its not a surprise, that they have lost their last 4 games in a row.
C. Dvorak, J. Demers, M. Grabner, N. Schmaltz, B. Richardson, J. Chychrun, K. Connauton, D. Kuemper and especially Goalie A. Raanta are out due to injuries.
But at least, we have the worst home team of the whole NHL here - only 8 games out of 24 could have been won.
Coyotes Problem is to score goals... only 65 in that 24 homegames is lousy.
The Blue Jackets on the other hand just ended a misery of 5 lost games after they could win in Colorado yesterday.
Boone Jenner is the only absent, while Murray and Dubinsky remain doubtful. Compared with their homeweakness they are quite succesful on the road. 31 Points and loosing only 9 out of 25 after regular time isnt that bad.
The Blue Jackets look to score with ease, but they are receiving to much goals. Last game they won 6-3 and thats symptomatic. As soon as they score - and they have to, because they cant keep the puck out of their own net - they will win the game.
Tonight they match up with a team, that have damn problems scoring, so the defense should have an easier job as normal and if they score like they do till now, Columbus will win that game. The DC to catch also the overtime.
If you like it risky, choose the direct "2". The under (7.5 or even 6.5) worth thinking.
Some thoughts about the other games tonight (will bet on some myself)
Buffalo Sabres - Carolina Hurricanes
Big Advantage for the Canes, will play them with +1 // over 4.5 or 5.5 worth a try
Florida Panthers - Pittsburgh Penguins
New Jersey Devils - New York Islanders
Islanders +1 should be a good choice to take care of OT (more over than under)
Philadelphia Flyers - Los Angeles Kings
Hard to predict. Advantage Flyers. Maybe under 6.5
Detroit Red Wings - Vegas Golden Knights
Advantage Vegas (maybe +1). Would take the under 6.5 here.
Montreal Canadiens - Winnipeg Jets
Everything possible. Under 6.5 would be the best choice if u need to bet.
Ottawa Senators - Anaheim Ducks
Sens +1, not many goals (under 6.5)
Tampa Bay Lightning - St. Louis Blues
All points to Tampa (1.9)
Minnesota Wild - Edmonton Oilers
Wild for 1.8 or DC. More under than over
Nashville Predators - Dallas Stars
Hard to predict. Best Choice would be Dallas +2 i guess. Under is a good choice either
Chicago Blackhawks - Vancouver Canucks
Many goals and advantage Hawks, but i will go for the Cannucks +1 i guess.
Washington Capitals - Colorado Avalanche
Caps, Caps, Caps!
Calgary Flames - San Jose Sharks
Flames should win this in over.
