NHL FREE PICK: Take New York. According to latest NHL trends, the home team is 6-2 in the last eight meetings between these two teams, including the Kings’ two victories in the first two games in L.A. The Rangers are also 5-1 in their last six games playing on one day of rest, 5-1 in their last six when their opponent scores five goals or more in their previous game and 7-2 in their last nine after allowing five goals or more in their previous contest. The Kings became the first team in playoff history to win three straight games in which they trailed by more than one goal when they rallied from deficits of 2-0, 3-1 and 4-2 to beat the Rangers 5-4 in double overtime in Game 2. But eventually there needs to be a market correction and if the Rangers get up by two or more goals tonight, I expect them to keep it.
