The NHL is back in action today as the Montreal Canadiens will clash with the Arizona Coyotes at Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona. The Coyotes were the better team last season as they beat the Canadiens twice last season.

The Coyotes are one of the teams that had high expectations heading into this season. Moreover, this is a team that has an abundance of young talent. However, the season did not start well for them as they lost three of their first four games. Additionally, they scored only 7 goals in those games. However, the Coyotes managed to get back to winning ways as they won 6 of their last 7 games. This is a team that has plenty of talent and there is more to come from them this season.
On the offensive side of the game, the Coyotes score an average of 3.00 goals per game. And this record is enough for the 17th spot in the league in scoring.

The Canadiens managed to get a convincing win against the Maple Leafs and that will give them self-esteem.
However, the Coyotes are the better team at the moment. Moreover, they are on a good run and there is more to come from them. Therefore, I side with Arizona in this one.
