NHL FREE PICK: Take Phoenix. Mike Smith returned from a groin injury on Tuesday and stopped 27 shots in a 4-1 loss to the Blues in St. Louis. But he’ll get his legs back under him after missing six games. The Coyotes are a different team with Smith between the pipes and despite being overmatched, look for them to pull off a big upset tonight versus the Kings. According to latest NHL trends, the Kings are just 3-7 in their last 10 games after allowing two goals or less in their previous game.
