NHL FREE PICK: Take the under. According to latest NHL trends, the under is 4-1 in the Blues' last five games versus the Pacific, 16-3-3 in their last 22 games overall, and 16-3-3 in their last 22 games against Western Conference opponents. The under is also 13-3-2 in the Blues' last 18 home games, 5-0 in their last five games versus a team with a winning record, and 4-1-3 in the Kings' last eight games overall. With Brian Elliott and Jonathan Quick in net, neither of these offenses will get going tonight and the Blues have one of the best defenses in the league. Couple that with the fact that they're intimidated by the Kings and we should see a low-scoring affair tonight.
