NHL FREE PICK: Take the under. According to latest NHL trends, the under is 23-10-3 in the last 36 meetings between these two teams in Chicago and 26-10-7 in the Kings' last 43 games on Sunday. It's high time that both of these goalies and defenses play a low-scoring game. We saw seven goals scored in Game 6, nine goals scored in Game 5, seven goals scored in Game 4, seven goals scored in Game 3 and eight goals scored in Game 2. You'd have to go all the way back to Game 1 for a total that fell under, as the Hawks beat the Kings, 3-1. With this being an elimination game for the right to play for the Stanley Cup, look for this matchup to be a tight, low-scoring affair. The under is due.
