NHL FREE PICK: Take Washington. According to latest NHL trends, the Canadiens are 0-6 in their last six games versus the Capitals, who are 27-11 in their last 38 games versus the Northeast Division. The Canadiens are also 0-4 in their last four games following a win, 2-7 in their last nine contests versus the Southeast Division, and 7-19 in their last 26 road games. The Capitals are breaking in new players on their top two lines and it's going to take some time for Adam Oates to implement his system. Alex Ovechkin has yet to score a goal but Washington's early struggles should be a distant memory soon. Look for the Caps to notch their first victory of the season tonight.
