NHL FREE PICK: Take the OVER.  According to latest NHL trends, Washington is 6-1-2 Over last 9 after allowing 2 goals or less in their previous game, 5-1-2 Over last 8 games as a road underdog of +110 to +150, 6-2-2 Over last 10 games as an underdog of +110 to +150 and 16-7-3 Over last 26 games as a road underdog. Washington has underachieved most of the season as they fired their head coach Bruce Boudreau and brought in more defensive-minded Dale Hunter. While that didn’t exactly pay off, the team still has offensive talent led by Alex Ovechkin and Alexander Semin. They are an offensive-minded team trying to defend but there is one major problem. Braden Holtby is in net and is just a rookie in a pressure-cooker moment. Boston lost their last game to Washington in a shootout and before that, lost 4-3 on March 10.Despite their talent, Boston went over 46 and under 33 times this year. Tyler Seguin leads the way for Boston with 29 goals, while Ovechkin has 38 goals. Holtby will be severely tested in the first game.
