A Western Conference clash of two young but flawed clubs occurs tonight, as the Arizona Coyotes make the trip north to scenic Vancouver to take on the Canucks.
The Coyotes may be near the basement of the West’s standings, but at least they have Clayton Keller. One of the future key components of the U.S. national team, Keller leads the ‘Yotes in points with 30 and in a cornerstone for this embattled franchise moving forward.
Arizona also features a watertight penalty-kill unit, in fact, it’s the best in the entire NHL, successful at over an 88% clip. Arizona’s best defenceman is the fleet skating Oliver Ekman-Larsson. After losing four of its previous five games, the Coyotes are most recently coming off a 5-0 drubbing of the New York Rangers, so hopefully that helps their confidence.
It’s clear for all to see: The ‘Nucks are the Elias Pettersson show. The sublimely skilled Swede will win rookie of the year honors and, if Van City actually made the playoffs (though unlikely), he could have a case for MVP, also. As the rookie leads the team in all statistical categories, pulses were raised when it was revealed that he has a mild MCL sprain. Much better than a tear, but he could be out for a bit.
For the most part, people are satisfied with what rookie head coach Travis Green has been able to do on the Left Coast so far, and though Vancouver is far from a finished product, it looks like it is trending in the right direction after milking the Sedin Era for way, waaaay too long.

Free Arizona Coyotes vs. Vancouver Canucks NHL Prediction:
Without Pettersson, it looks like Vancouver’s offence is screwed; the ‘Nucks are coming off being shut out in back-to-back games versus Montreal and Toronto. They need him back as soon as possible. Someone like fellow promising youngsters Bo Horvat and Brock Boeser needs to fill the void.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Arizona ML
The combination of the good vibes of the Rangers blowout and the apprehension surrounding the Pettersson injury makes me think the lowly Coyotes can come into Vancouver’s barn and steal a few chickens – if that’s a euphemism for grabbing a road win in British Columbia.
