The Arizona Coyotes have yet to score this season — albeit in two games — so a matchup with the league’s best goalie isn’t exactly what the doctor ordered.

John Gibson has started the season in spectacular fashion for the undefeated Ducks, posting a .964 5v5 save percentage (SV%) and 4.39 Goals Saved Above Average (GSAA) in three starts.

Gibson is among the league’s best goalies but he’s not going to keep standing on his head. His expected save percentage (xSV%) at 5v5 is .912 and Anaheim is getting shelled every night, so it’s hard to imagine Gibson will keep posting zeros.
