Trends:

The Arizona Coyotes are (3-3-4) in their last ten games.  They are (5-14-3) at home this season.

The New York Islanders (4-6-0) in their last ten games.  They are (11-13-1) on the road this season.

Bottom Line:

The Coyotes have really struggled this season and are just (12-39) in their last 59 games.  The Islanders are (5-2) in their last seven head to head games with the Coyotes.  New York has struggled defensively this season allowing a league high (3.65) goals per game but they also score the second most on the other end (3.44).  Arizona has been offensively challenged for the majority of the season scoring the second fewest goals in the NHL (2.35).  The Islanders may give up a few but they’ll be able to outscore a Coyotes team that has not fared well on their home ice.
