NHL Free Pick: While Calgary does look like a decent home dog on paper, Vancouver is on a mission and is playing hockey at an unreal level right now as it has won four in a row on the road and would love to complete the trip unscathed. Daniel Sedin, Canucks leading scorer, has points in all four road games and a total of seven in those games. Vancouver goaltender Roberto Luongo has been stellar of late and has not given up over three goals in a game during his last 17 starts. While the Flames are playing good hockey in their own right, they might want this one a little too much for their own good and it could result in a costly mistake or two in their own end.
