We are in store for a great matchup here tonight, as the Arizona Coyotes travel to the windy city to take on the Chicago Blackhawks. The Arizona Coyotes enter this game ranked 9th in the NHL with a record of 17-10-4. The Chicago Blackhawks enter this game ranked 25th in the NHL with a record of 12-12-5 on the year. These teams are separated on the stat sheet in the point column but need the win just as much as the other team. The Coyotes need a couple of points to stay in the top ten of the NHL standings. The Blackhawks need a win to get their season back on track, as time is running out. Who will win this game is anyone's guess.

Arizona Coyotes Review

The Arizona Coyotes are still searching for a spark on offense when on the road, ranking just 22nd in goals scored per game when on the road this season. Clayton Keller has been a bright spot on offense this season, racking up 19 points in 31 games. Keller has been a stud on the Coyotes this season and will need to bring it tonight in order to take down the Blackhawks.

The Coyotes have been much better on defense all year, ranking1st in the NHL with just 2.35 goals allowed per game when on the road. Darcy Kuemper continues to have an MVP type of year for Arizona. Kuemper will need to control those rebounds and be vocal to his skaters from the crease if the Coyotes want to leave with a win.

Chicago Blackhawks Review

The Chicago Blackhawks enter this game with a defense that has been lackluster all season. The Blackhawks defense ranks 19th in the NHL with 2.88 goals allowed per game when at home this season. Corey Crawford and Robin Lehner have been splitting time evenly this season and have both been really good this season. Both goalies have been electric to watch and will need to bring it tonight if the Blackhawks want a chance to win. These skaters will need to start helping out their goalies if they want to make a playoff push.

Chicago has been struggling on offense this season, ranking 24th in NHL in scoring in front of their home fans. Patrick Kane seems to be the only playmaker on this Blackhawks team and will need to dominate the offensive zone here tonight. Kane will need to stretch the ice with crisp passes to try and evade this Arizona defense.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Go with the Arizona Coyotes in this game, as they are going to roll past the Chicago Blackhawks. The best player on the Coyotes right now is the goal guard, Darcy Kuemper, who has played with composure and leadership. Arizona has relied heavily on Darcy Kuemper to pick up wins here this season and Kuemper will continue to crush it tonight. The Arizona Coyotes will be looking towards Clayton Keller to make some crisp passes and shoot the puck often, as Keller is one of the best scores on the Coyotes. Go with Arizona here, Chicago cannot seem to score or stop others from scoring.

Prediction: Arizona Coyotes

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

I like the under here in this matchup. The Chicago Blackhawks have shown that they cannot score, with only Patrick Kane being the lone skater who consistently puts the puck in the back of the net. Kane cannot do it alone, especially when facing off against the best goalie in hockey, Darcy Kuemper. On the other side of the ice, Arizona has one of the worst scoring offense in the league. The only reason the Coyotes are hot right now is because their goalie is amazing and the skaters know how to play a physical, defensive style of hockey. The Blackhawks goalies have been quite good all season and will continue that tonight despite either goalie getting the start. it may be boring, but root for the under here, root for no goals, and enjoy this physical, brawl style of hockey.

Prediction: Under 6
