NHL Pick: Dallas Stars at Arizona Coyotes

Coyotes NHL TeamOverview

The Dallas Stars are in Arizona tonight where they take on the Coyotes. The Stars have played the Coyotes well of late winning 5 of the last 6 meetings overall and they have also won the last 6 in a row played in Arizona.

Head to Head Trends

Stars are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
Under is 8-1-1 in the last 10 meetings in Arizona.

Arizona Coyotes (+135)

The Arizona Coyotes are 4th in the Pacific Division with 58 points 11 points back of the 1st place LA Kings. The Coyotes had a hot stretch in late December and early January that saw them pick up points in 13 of 15 games. During that stretch the Coyotes were scoring a lot of goals but since then their offense has kind of dried up again scoring 2 or less goals in 9 of their last 13 games.

On the season the Coyotes are averaging 2.68 goals per game on offense which isn’t all that bad but their defense/goaltending is near the bottom of the league allowing 3.04 goals per game. The Coyotes also have a fairly high shooting percentage at 9.73% so it’s no real surprise to see them going into a scoring slump.

Arizona Coyotes Trends

Coyotes are 2-6 in their last 8 overall.
Coyotes are 4-13 in their last 17 vs. a team with a winning % above .600.

Dallas Stars (-145)

The Dallas Stars are 2nd in the Central Division with 80 points just 1 point back of the 1st place Chicago Blackhawks but the Blackhawks do have 3 more games played. The Dallas Stars were probably the best team in the league until they hit that rough stretch in January that saw them lose 7 of 8 games.

The Stars have bounced back nicely however winning 7 of their last 9 games and one of those losses came in overtime so their has been just one game over their last 9 that they have failed to pick up at least a single point. The Stars were in a bit of a scoring slump for a while but they seem to be back firing on all cylinders scoring 4 or more goals in 5 of their last 8 games.

Dallas Stars Trends

Stars are 7-2 in their last 9 overall.
Stars are 5-0 in their last 5 vs. a team with a losing record.


I like the Dallas Stars over the Coyotes in this one. These are two teams going in opposite directions right now. The Coyotes have lost 6 of their last 8 games while the Stars have won 7 of their last 9 games and are back playing like one of the best teams in the league again.
