Anaheim vs Arizona: Ducks Aim to Avenge Early Season Embarrassment Versus Yotes

Anaheim vs Arizona: Ducks Aim to Avenge Early Season Embarrassment Versus Yotes
It’s a rare evening as, for second of three times during the 2015-16 schedule, there is just one game on tap in the NHL tonight. The honor of being the only game in town goes to the Anaheim Ducks and Arizona Coyotes as these clubs will clash in Western Conference action for the second time this season. The first match was all Yotes as the Ducks were crushed 4-0 at home during their third game of the year. This NHL Pacific Division duel has its puck drop slated for 10:00 PM ET on November 9, 2015, at the Honda Center in Anaheim, CA.

Anaheim Ducks: Starting to roll after horrendous season start

Totally flat out of the starting gate, the Ducks opened their season on a sloppy 1-7-2 skid, Anaheim has turned things around as they have won four straight contests. Scoring has been a problem for Anaheim as they were shutout four times and outscored by a 27-10 combined count during ten games in October. Turing the page in November, the Ducks have reeled off four straight wins, by a 12-6 margin, and they posted a shutout of their own with a 1-0 win in San Jose on Saturday. As bad as their start was – Anaheim is only six point out of first in the Pacific Division. Stacked with talent, it was only a matter of time until the Ducks ended their free-fall and started to soar.

Arizona Coyotes: Surprisingly strong season start has dissipated in the desert

Tagged with a +6600 ML price to win the Stanley Cup – expectations were low in Arizona heading into the season. Catching three of the best teams in the NHL, while they were playing their worst, enabled the Coyotes to open their season with a 3-0 record as they outscored the Kings, Penguins and Ducks by a 12-2 count in those contests. It’s been kind of down hill since them as Arizona is just 3-6-1 over their last ten games. The Yotes are coming of a 4-1 home loss to the New York Rangers on Saturday and they lost one of their top defensemen, Nicklas Grossmann, to a lower body injury in that contest. Grossmann’s 17:31 average minutes of ice time is tough to replace.

Anaheim vs Arizona NHL Puck Betting Prediction: Anders Lindback (1-2 GGA 1.67) gets the call in net for the Coyotes while Frederik Andersen (3-5 GAA 2.03) will start in goal for the Ducks. Don’t expect a repeat of the Ducks early season debacle against the Coyotes as Anaheim is the decidedly better team in this Pacific Division duel tonight. We are backing the Ducks with a 500 unit wager on the money line odds posted on the NHL betting board at the Bet365 online sportsbook.
