Arizona Coyotes vs St. Louis Blues Tips


Despite sitting back in 7th in the Western Division with six defeats in nine games, the Coyotes showed real fight against division leaders St Louis earlier this week. 

Friday’s encounter will be more of the same, and I’m predicting the Blues will once again edge out Arizona by 2.0 goals or less, with BTTS.
  
  • St Louis have conceded at least one goal in all eight of their wins this season 
  • St Louis have featured BTTS in all but one game this season 
  • St Louis are on a four-match winning streak 
  • Arizona have scored in all but two of their games this season 

Head to Head 


The Arizona Coyotes and the St. Louis Blues have faced each other 46 times, with St. Louis leading their head-to-head 29-18. However in their nine most recent encounters since the start of 2018, Arizona actually lead 6-3. 

Arizona Coyotes Form

 
The Coyotes are languishing second from bottom of the eight-team West Division. Their tally of seven points from nine games is only one point better than bottom team the San Jose Sharks, who have a game in hand. 

Arizona’s most recent victory came in late January, when they edged out Anaheim 3-2. Despite their lowly league position and losing record, the Coyotes have conceded remarkably few goals, 26, the third lowest in the West Division. 

Coyotes Team News 


There is a school of thought that says the most important player in an ice hockey team is the goal tender. 

This is clearly not always the case, as the Arizona Coyotes goal tender Darcy Kuemper has emerged as one of the very best in the NHL, while as a team the Coyotes have struggled badly over the past two seasons. 

The Coyotes will be hoping to build on their excellent showing against St. Louis on Wednesday, and Arizona head coach Rick Tocchet will be looking toward center Christian Dvorak who has scored twice in his last two games to get the goals that could lead to victory. 

St Louis Blues Form

 
St Louis have been enjoying an excellent season thus far, and are a virtually certainty to reach the post season playoffs, and are a dark horse to possibly contest the Stanley Cup itself. 

That said, there is concern about an air of complacency that has crept into the team of late, resulting in the leakiest defence in the West Division, exemplified by Wednesday’s scare against Arizona. 

Arizona went ahead early before being pegged back, and then drew level at 2-2, but goals from Mike Hoffman, Justin Faulk, Griffin Dunn and Ryan O’Reilly gave the Blues a 4-3 victory, their eighth win of the season against just two defeats.   

Nevertheless, the fact that they have conceded some 32 goals (36 scored) in just ten games remains a cause for concern. 

Blues Team News 


While St Louis possess the goal threats provided by Hoffman, Faulk, O’Reilly and Dunn, they also have an outstanding goal tender in Jordan Binnington, and all five will be fit for the rematch against Arizona. 

Justin Faulk is hugely important to the Blues, as he is just as proficient in defence as attack. However Faulk cannot defend on his own, and it will require a solid team effort in defence as well as attack by St. Louis to ensure victory over Arizona once more on Friday.
