New York has struggled on both ends of the ice as hockey betting stats have it. Their offense is ranked near the bottom of the league as they just can’t score goals on a regular basis as hockey betting stats have it. Hockey betting numbers show that the same problem exists on defense even though goaltender Joey MacDonald has shown some promise. New York has talent but overall they are just not deep enough to challenge many of the top teams in the NHL.

Phoenix has also struggled to score goals as hockey betting stats indicate. Gamblers that bet on hockey see that Shane Doan has been leading the team in scoring but overall the Coyotes struggle to score on a regular basis. The good news for Phoenix is that they are near the Top 10 in defense and that usually means they have a chance to win versus the hockey betting line on a nightly basis. Ilya Bryzgalov and Mikael Tellqvist have both been solid this season as hockey betting stats have shown.
