Detroit Losers of Two Straight
This doesn’t exactly have the feel of a Stanley Cup Finals preview.
Arizona is 0-8 in the month of January and has been outscored 30-13 in those games. Detroit has dropped five of its last seven games, including Monday’s 6-3 loss to Colorado.
Detroit is 7-7-4 on the road while Arizona is 7-6-2 at home so this is about as mediocre of a matchup as could be put together. It is hard to know which Detroit team will be showing up, the one that upset Toronto 4-1 or the one that lost to Columbus 4-3.
Forwards Matt Luff and Filip Zadina are out for Detroit. For Arizona, forwards Matias Maccelli and Liam O’Brien are out while Brian Little is out for the season.
According to the NHL playoff odds, both teams are well back in the odds to win the Stanley Cup. The Red Wings are priced at +15000 and Arizona is at +100000.
Let’s check the latest NHL odds, stats, injury reports, and NHL lines for Red Wings vs Coyotes. We’ve plenty of NHL betting odds for you to consider.
Penalty Killing a Concern
There are plenty of issues with this Detroit team and penalty killing would have to rank near the top of the list.
The Red Wings have killed off just 13 of the last 21 power plays by the opposition and only Vancouver has a lower success rate.
Detroit just allowed two goals on four power-play opportunities in a 6-3 loss to Colorado. The good news is that the Red Wings are facing an Arizona team that has scored on two of its last 16 man-advantage situations. Colorado scored twice on the power play to take a 5-0 lead. Andrew Copp and Ben Chiarot each had their fourth goals of the season to make things somewhat interesting.

When Detroit posted back-to-back wins over Winnipeg and Toronto, the Red Wings only had to kill off three power plays in both games. They will look to stay out of the penalty box in this one.
The Las Vegas odds total has gone over in 13 of Detroit’s last 20 games against Central Division teams.
Arizona Struggling at Home
It wasn’t that long ago that Arizona recorded consecutive home wins against the Boston Bruins, Philadelphia Flyers and New York Islanders, rallying from behind in all three games.
It has been a different story recently with the Coyotes dropping all three home games in January and have been outscored 13-6 in those games.
With five of the next six games at home, there is no time like the present to fix things – even with four of those matchups against teams with winning records.
Forwards Nick Schmaltz, Lawson Crouse, Clayoton Keller, Nick Ritchie and Nick Bjugstad have all been held without a goal in those three road games so there is plenty of blame to go around.
The NHL betting lines total has gone under in five of Arizona’s last six games. However, eight of the last 12 home contests finished over the total.
