NHL FREE PICK: According to latest NHL trends, the Devils are 4-0 in their last 4 vs. Atlantic, 5-1 in their last 6 games as an underdog, 8-2 in their last 10 when their opponent scores 2 goals or less in their previous game, 11-4 in their last 15 Conference Finals games and are 8-3 in their last 11 after allowing 2 goals or less in their previous game. Rangers are 2-7 last 9 games following a win. The Devils have five days rest while the Rangers have just one after playing an emotional series. The two teams split their series, 3-3 in the regular season.   New Jersey is playing as well led by future Hall of Fame netminder Martin Brodeur, who comes into this third-round series as a 40-year-old but is playing as well as he did in his prime. He could have used the rest and his teammates needed to heal some bumps and bruises. They take on a tired Rangers’ squad and should jump out in Game 1 with an early lead.
