NHL FREE PICK: Take San Jose. According to latest NHL trends, the Sharks are 14-3 in their last 17 games playing on three or more days of rest and are 37-14 in their last 51 games following a loss of three or more goals. The Blues, meanwhile, are 1-6 in their last seven games versus the Pacific Division and 0-4 in their last four games when their opponent scores two goals or less in their previous contest. The Blues were also trapped in Vancouver until early Tuesday morning when their plane was delayed following a victory over the Canucks on Sunday night. The players were supposed to arrive back in St. Louis on Monday afternoon and instead spent the entire day in an airport. The home game following a lengthy road trip is always a bear as well, and the Blues are coming off a three-game. Even though the Sharks in the midst of a nasty seven-game losing streak, but they’re due and the Blues look prime for the taking.
