Arizona Coyotes vs. Buffalo Sabres Betting Odds


Arizona Coyotes Analysis

Arizona Coyotes have executed an efficient and balanced offensive strategy this season, led by Clayton Keller with 8 goals and 16 assists to drive their attack forward. Nick Schmaltz brings an exceptional blend of scoring and playmaking that has proved pivotal for their attack. Matias Maccelli’s left-wing play has provided Coyotes’ offense with an additional dimension. Boasting nine goals and 11 assists as well as an exceptional shooting percentage, Coyotes have an indispensable weapon on their ice surface. Coyotes boast 18 points, 14 of them coming via assists, that showcase his ability to distribute puck efficiently and create scoring chances for his teammates. Their formidable offensive trio and strong support from other players makes Coyotes unstoppable when it comes to goal scoring potential.

Arizona Coyotes defense relies heavily on goaltender Connor Ingram this season, with Ingram having demonstrated his talents with an outstanding 0.925 save percentage and 2.35 goals-against average through 16 games. His consistent ability to make key saves has kept them competitive during tight games while showing resilience when under pressure; these performances must continue if they hope to maintain pace against Buffalo Sabres attacks and limit scoring chances.

Buffalo Sabres Analysis

Buffalo Sabres’ offense features an effective and adaptable attack front. Casey Mittelstadt stood out as an instrumental playmaker during 2017 with 16 assists and 6 goals scored during that year alone. Rasmus Dahlin has quickly established himself as an integral component of the Sabres offense due to his vision on the ice and ability to set up scoring plays, while playing an essential role transitioning play and contributing 21 points from defense. JJ Peterka plays an invaluable role for the Sabres on both defense and offense, contributing both goals and assists. On right wing alone he boasts 11 goals scored and 9 assists – an outstanding feat! He combines scoring ability and an above-average shooting percentage, creating an ongoing threat, while his lineup of skilled forwards and defensemen capable of contributing offensively is difficult for opposing teams to adapt or identify scoring opportunities.

On defense, the Sabres depend heavily on goaltender Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen to lead their effort and defend against Arizona Coyotes’ offensive threats. His performance so far this season with a save percentage of 0.907 and goals against average of 2.81 has proven critical against their offensive potential.
