The program of the game day of the NHL regular season will continue with a modest meeting between Arizona and Boston. The start of the game of these teams is scheduled for January 29 at 05:00 Moscow time. Our portal has prepared its forecast for this confrontation for you.
"Arizona" failed the preseason and the start of the season, losing in almost all matches. At the same time, the level of play of the Coyotes is extremely weak, and now injuries do not allow them to show the proper level. Several seasons must pass for the Coyotes to regain a high level of play. Now the team is giving out a series of defeats, and the last offender was Pittsburgh, who won with a score of 6:3.
"Boston" got off to a good start in the new season after the big upheavals of the squad in the offseason, the team looks especially powerful on its own court, where it rarely loses. Now there is no stability in Boston, the team after another disastrous stretch began to gain momentum and gave out a series of victories, but in previous meetings lost at home to Anaheim and away to Colorado in overtime.
Injuries and disqualifications:
Arizona - Timmins (knee injury), Hutton (lower body injury), Yashkin (upper body injury), Dzingel (lower body injury), Hayton (illness), Beagle (lower body injury).
Boston - Zborzhil (leg injury), Frederik (illness), Foligno (lower body injury).
Statistics and figures
- The last match between these teams ended with a 4-2 victory for Boston.
- Arizona has a bad streak of three defeats in a row.
- Boston has won just twice in their last five meetings.
It is difficult to single out a favorite in this game, because Boston has recently lost confidence in its abilities and often loses. Boston is stronger in the selection of performers, but Arizona will have the advantage of home stands. The hosts have problems with building a defensive game, conceding a lot of goals. I think we are waiting for a confident victory of the guests.
