The script has flipped, at least for the first couple games, as the Arizona Coyotes travel to Anaheim to take on the Ducks.
Arizona has started 2-0, while the Anaheim Ducks have stumbled out of the gate to start the season.
The Ducks have to be incredibly happy to see the Arizona Coyotes walk through the door Wednesday night. Anaheim took 8 out of 10 possible points against Arizona last season and will look to repeat that performance Wednesday night.
The recipe for success has come from G Mike Smith, who has at least started the season off on a much better note than last year.
Smith earned Third Star of the Week honors after saving 67 of 69 shots to lead the Coyotes to 2 straight victories to open the season.
However, Smith will need to change his fortunes, as he’s struggled against the Ducks in his career. The goaltender is just 1-5-1 over the last 7 meetings with Anaheim, this after he started 8-3-1 in the first 12 head-to-head meetings.
Arizona has knocked off Los Angeles 4-1 and followed that performance up with a 2-1 win over Pittsburgh. Both wins have came as giant underdogs at nice prices for bettors.
A win on Wednesday will give the Coyotes their first 3 game winning streak to start the season since the 2003-2004 season.
The Ducks have struggled here early in the season, scoring just 1 goal over their first two games as their offense continues to try to find an answer.
Captain Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry have yet to record any points this season, but this matchup with the Coyotes is exactly what they need. Both have had major success against Arizona and have plenty of career experience to back that up.
Getzlaf has 56 career meetings with Arizona and has posted 57 points on 17 goals and 40 assists. Perry has played in 53 games against these Coyotes and has recorded 42 points with 23 goals and 19 assists.
Defensively, Anaheim’s Kevin Bieksa has averaged 24 minutes per game through the first 2, after seeing just 21 minutes. G Frederik Andersen has faced 69 shots and allowed just 3 goals, but that hasn’t proved to be enough as he’s lost both outings.
