Friday's NHL Prediction
With both near the bottom of their respective divisions, Calgary and Phoenix could each use a win when the two meet on Friday in the NHL.
The Flames are 7-7-0 on the season and are four points behind Vancouver in the Northwest Division. Calgary has scored 39 goals and allowed 40. The Flames are 3-3-0 on the road.
Phoenix is 5-5-5 on the year and is 5 points behind Los Angeles for the lead in the Pacific Division. The Coyotes have scored 37 goals and allowed 46 this year. They are 2-2-3 at home this year.
Here is a look at the trends and my pick for tonight’s game.
Calgary Flames at Phoenix Coyotes, 9PM ET
The Flames have won 18 of the last 26 meetings with the Coyotes, including 9 of the last 13 games in Phoenix.
The Coyotes are just 8-0 in their last eight games after a win and 2-8 in their last 10 games at home.
