NHL FREE PICK: Take Minnesota. According to latest NHL trends, the Wild are 10-1 in home games revenging a home loss versus an opponent over the last two seasons and 22-19-5 against St. Louis since 1996. The Blues have gotten great goaltending from Brian Elliott over the last two games, both of which were shutouts. But they've also scored just two goals in each of their last two games as their offense has suddenly gone into hibernation. St. Louis looks more like the team it did last year when it was winning mostly on defense and goaltending, but it needs more offense than it's been generating lately. Look for the Wild to end the Blues' current five-game winning streak tonight.
