NHL FREE PICK: Take New York. According to latest NHL trends, the Rangers are 5-2 in their last seven games playing on one day of rest and 11-4 in their last 15 games on Wednesday. They’re also 20-8 in their last 28 games when their opponent allows two goals or less in their previous contest and 19-9 in their last 28 games after scoring two goals or less in their previous game. New York didn’t show any fight in Game 3 of this series and it’s going to be extremely difficult for the Rangers to beat Jonathan Quick four straight games. But we do expect the Rangers to play better tonight and at least stave off elimination for a few more nights.
