Can the Coyotes Bounce Back?

After scoring 12 goals in the previous two games against Vancouver and San Jose, it was a different story when Arizona hit the ice in Seattle. Despite outshooting the host Kraken 39-25, Arizona was shut out for just the second time this season.

If there is a potential silver, lining it could be that the Coyotes responded with six goals last time Arizona failed to score a goal.

Arizona is 3-4 and has been outscored 19- 17 this hockey season in the second game in a back-to-back and that is something to keep in mind when it comes to the Coyotes vs Canucks betting odds.

The total went over in five of Arizona’s last seven games.

Miller Delivering for the Canucks

Before arriving in Vancouver, J.T. Miller never had more than 34 assists or 56 points in a season. It has been a different story in his five seasons in Vancouver.

After falling a point short of his first career 100-point season two years ago, Miller reached that mark with three assists in a 4-3 win over reigning Stanley Cup champion Vegas on Monday. Those making NHL expert picks will take a look at the +160 odds for Miller to have at least two points in back-to-back games for the first time since late February.

While his 65 assists are two shy of his career high, he has more assists this season than he had points in his first seven seasons with the New York Rangers and the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Miller has points in eight straight games with two goals and eight assists in these contests. Keep that in mind when it comes to the Coyotes vs Canucks betting odds.

Eleven of Vancouver’s last 16 hockey games went under the total.

Last Meeting

Conor Garland scored with 1:51 left in the third period as the visiting Vancouver Canucks won 2-1 as only one even-strength goal was scored in the game.

Quinn Hughes, one of the NHL league leaders for points by a defenseman, had a power-play goal to give Vancouver the lead in the second period with Dylan Guenther tying the game on the power play midway through the third period. The game fell well short of the 6.5-goal total.

Coyotes vs Canucks Betting Preview

Vancouver has won seven of its last eight games against Arizona and five of the last six at home and with the Canucks having more to play for than the Coyotes, that trend could continue in the final matchup of the season between the teams.

Forward Nick Bjugstad is questionable for Arizona while fellow Coyotes forwards Travis Boyd, Travis Dermott, and Barrett Hayton are out.

For Vancouver, Elias Lindholm is close to returning to the ice. Lindholm hasn’t played since March 23. Goalie Thatcher Demko took part in Tuesday’s practice so Vancouver could also welcome back its No. 1 goalie soon.
Vancouver is 33-17-5 as a favorite with Arizona 19-40-4 as the underdog.

Vancouver has won its last five home games against the Coyotes

Arizona has covered in 20 of its 38 road games this season with 21 of those games landing over the total.
The total has gone under in 10 of Arizona’s last 15 games against Pacific Division teams.

Vancouver is 15-5-3 outright in its last 23 games as a favorite at home with the Canucks covering against the puck line in just 10 of those matchups. Arizona has won just three of its last 15 games as the road underdog with the Coyotes covering in eight of those games.

Six of Vancouver’s last eight home games went under the total as Vancouver has allowed the third fewest goals per game since the start of March. The total is set at 6.5 goals for this game as another Vancouver home game could go under the total.
