NHL FREE PICK: Take Vancouver. According to latest NHL trends, the home team is 4-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams, while the Oilers are 1-8 in their last nine trips to Vancouver and 0-4 in their last four games versus the Canucks overall. Vancouver allowed a goal all three times it was short-handed last night versus the Ducks, but look for the Canucks to play much better tonight. Vancouver was 7-4-0 in its last second night of back-to-back games last season and look for the trend of the Canucks playing well on consecutive nights to continue.
