There has been a lot of talk to start the 2019-20 National Hockey League regular season about the outstanding play of the Edmonton Oilers. At the start of the season they were given a 0% chance by Las Vegas odds makers to win the Stanley Cup, but remarkably find themselves first in the Pacific Division with 17 points.
Two teams from the Pacific Division that cannot be overlooked for their outstanding play are the Arizona Coyotes and Vancouver Canucks. The Coyotes and Canucks are currently tied for third place in the division with identical records of seven wins, three regulation losses and one loss in extra time for 15 points.
On Monday, the Coyotes and Canucks both came away with victories on the only two games on the NHL’s slate. The Coyotes went into Buffalo and upset the Sabres 3-2 in a shootout, while the Canucks beat the Florida Panthers with ease 7-2.
In the Coyotes win over the Sabres, right winger Conor Garland of Scituate, MA led the team in scoring with two points as he notched one goal and one assist.
