NHL Free Pick: People will be quick to look at Phoenix's impressive 3-1 win at NHL-best Vancouver Friday night and also Chicago's 5-0 shutout loss at Dallas Thursday and quickly make a snap judgment. Of course, on those particular nights the Coyotes played a very good game and the Blackhawks were something less than subpar. But looking at the greater body of work and it was probably an anomaly. Vancouver hasn't been playing at as high of a standard right now as it did earlier in the season. In the case of Chicago, if any team can bounce back from a poor effort it is the defending Stanley Cup Champions. Chicago had one more day of rest and less miles to travel. They are favored in this one for a reason. Take Chicago.
