NHL FREE PICK: Take Pittsburgh. According to latest NHL trends, the Rangers are just 8-20 in their last 28 games in Pittsburgh and 3-10 in their last 13 meetings overall versus the Penguins. They’re also 1-4 in their last five road games, 1-4 in their last five conference semifinals games and 1-6 in their last seven versus a team with a winning record. On the other side, the Penguins are 50-19 in their last 69 home games, 18-8 in their last 26 versus the Metropolitan division, and 69-33 in their last 102 versus the Eastern Conference. At -152, the Pens don’t exactly offer great value but if you’re willing to take a higher risk, Pittsburgh should pay off against a tired New York team that just got done going seven with Philadelphia.
