NHL FREE PICK: Take Vancouver. According to latest NHL trends, the road team is 5-2 in the last seven meetings between these two teams while the Canucks are 16-7 in their last 23 games versus a team with a winning record. The Ducks, meanwhile, are 2-7 in their last nine games following a win and 1-4 in their last five games on Friday. Anaheim is off to a nice start but goaltender Jonas Hiller has allowed seven goals in his first two starts. The Ducks have also struggled with their penalty killing, allowing four goals in seven opportunities. Thus, despite the 2-0 start, there's some underlining issues that the Ducks face. Look for the Canucks to pick up their second win of the season and hand Anaheim its first loss of 2013.
