Randy’s Free Pick
You’re scraping the bottom of the barrel with this one, and this truth is I want nothing to do with either team. However, somebody has to win, and at least the Coyotes are at home. The Coyotes are also better defensively, even if that’s not saying much. It’s Coyotes or pass for me. The Ducks are another level of terrible.
