NHL FREE PICK: Take Montreal. According to latest NHL trends, the Rangers are 2-9 in their last 11 trips to Montreal and 2-5 in their last seven games versus the Canadiens overall, while the home team is 10-4 in the last 14 meetings between these two teams. The Habs are also 5-1 in their last six Monday games, 9-2 in their last 11 after scoring two goals or less in their previous game and 10-3 in their last 13 games playing on one day of rest. Despite its brutal Game 1 effort, look for Montreal to bounce back tonight. This is a better club than what we saw play on Saturday and we expect the Habs to come out focused and with urgency in Game 2.
