Friday NHL Free Pick:

The Jackets have dropped two in a row and are now 1-7-2 in their last 10 games away from Columbus. Jonas Hiller (19-4-3, 2.52 goals-against average) had his three-game winning streak snapped on Wednesday but the Predators, but he’s expected to be back in the net on Friday and he should bounce back. Columbus waived veteran defenseman Mike Commodore and rookie center Kyle Wilson recently and placed left wing Ethan Moreau on IR. That seem to be sputtered big time, going 6-11-3 in the past six weeks and now they’re 24th in goals scored per game (2.5) and 23rd per game in goals allowed (2.9). Our pick is the Ducks –115.
