In a game from NHL, we will see San Jose Sharks at Arizona Coyotes.
The San Jose Sharks will go to Arizona with a ton of confidence after winning their last 2 games 4-1 against the Ottawa Senators and 5-2 against the Pittsburgh Penguins. San Jose is 27-13-7 on the season and 2nd in the Pacific. The Sharks are 8-1-1 over their last 10 games. Aaron Dell will start between the sticks on Wednesday. He is 6-5-3 on the season with 2 clean sheets. The Sharks are a potent offensive team, averaging 3.55 goals per game.
The Arizona Coyotes’ morale won’t be high at all, even though they are returning home. They are coming off a 7-1 loss to the Calgary Flames and this made them 20-22-3 on the year and 5-4-1 in the last 10 games. Darcy Kuemper will start as a goalie and he has allowed 58 goals so far this season. Kuemper is 8-11-3 on the season with one shutout. The Arizona Coyotes allow 2.87 goals per game which ranks 10th in the NHL.
Even though the Sharks are playing back-to-back games, I still trust them to get the job as they are the much better side. I also expect more goals to be scored in this one, having in mind that San Jose might be fatigued and without a focus.
