Struggling Coyotes Host Surging Flames

Calgary Flames Arizona Coyotes NHL

The Arizona Coyotes played some great hockey in January to climb back into the playoff race in the Western Conference, but a loss Friday night would give them their longest losing streak of the season and dig them in a deeper hole in the ever-tightening West.

Shark Bites
  • UNDER is 4-0 in the last four meetings in Arizona between the Flames and Coyotes.
  • The Flames are 3-10 in the last 13 meetings in Arizona.
  • The Coyotes are 1-4 in their last five games versus the Pacific Division.

The Yotes have lost five-consecutive games heading into Friday night’s meeting with the Calgary Flames. That streak matches their longest of the season to date (December 1 through December 8) and now has them four points of the eight-seeded Nashville Predators.

A win by the suddenly-hot Calgary Flames would leapfrog them over the Coyotes as they sit one point back of their Pacific Division rivals. Calgary has won three consecutive games heading into Friday’s contest, capped by a 6-5 shootout victory over the San Jose Sharks Thursday night.

The two have met twice already this season with the Coyotes posting 2-1 victories in both games. The Flames had the Coyotes number in the 2014-15 season, however, as they won all five meetings.
