This Wednesday, Clayton Keller and the Arizona Coyotes will head to Rogers Arena to take on Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers. The Arizona Coyotes will enter this game against the Edmonton Oilers following a huge win against the Chicago Blackhawks this past Saturday which resulted in a final score of 4-2. In the game against the Blackhawks, Coyotes forward Clayton Keller managed to score his 32nd goal of the season in the 3rd period which tied things up late for the Coyotes.
The Arizona Coyotes have been on absolute fire lately which is a major shocker considering the way that they have been playing this season. The Coyotes have won four games in a row for the first time all season and have also won 6 of their last 7 games played. Despite the recent success, the Coyotes still have zero chance of making the playoffs this season.
The Edmonton Oilers will enter this game against the Arizona Coyotes following a huge overtime win against the San Jose Sharks this past Monday which resulted in a final score of 5-4. In the game against the San Jose Sharks, the Oilers peppered James Reimer with 52 shots on goal and newly acquired defenseman Mattias Ekholm managed to fire home two goals in the game.
The Oilers have arguably been the best team in the NHL lately as they have now won four straight games while also winning six of their last seven games played. McDavid has been lighting it up for yet another season. McDavid not only leads the Oilers in every category, but is also leading the league in goals, assists, and points. Expect a big performance from McDavid in this one as he was surprisingly quiet against the Sharks.
