NHL FREE PICK: Take the UNDER.  According to latest NHL trends, Vancouver is 1-5-3 UNDER last 9 meetings in series, 2-7-2 UNDER L11 at home in series, 1-4-1 Under is 4-1-1 last 6 playoff games as a favorite 1-4-1 Under last 6 after scoring 2 goals or less in their previous game and 5-18-7 Under last 30 games playing on 1 days rest. The Vancouver Canucks have to stay out of the penalty box if they are to avoid getting down 2-0 in this series. The Presidents' Trophy winners were shorthanded seven times in their 4-2 loss in Game One, and were fortunate the Kings cashed in only twice. Daniel Sedin (30 goals)missed practice Thursday and is unlikely to play in Game 2. That’s a big loss for the Canucks, who should play more disciplined in this game and stay out of the penalty box. Without Sedin, the Canucks will have to win this with defense. The Kings want to win but would be happy with a split.
