NHL FREE PICK: Take the OVER. According to latest NHL trends, the Kings are 6-2 Over last 8 as a home favorite, 5-1 L6 as a home favorite of -110 to -150 and 5-1 Over last 6 Conference quarterfinal games. The Canucks are 5-1-1 last 7 playoff games as an underdog, 4-1-2 Over last 7 overall, 9-3-2 Over in last 14 Conference Quarterfinals games. The Canucks are in a desperation mode as they cannot afford to get down 3-0 in this series. This was the top team all year in the NHL but they’ve struggled without Daniel Sedin (concussion) who might not be back. But they've also struggled defensively, losing both games 4-2 at home. RW Dustin Brown scored 2 goals in the last game on Friday and he had a goal and an assist in Game 1. The Kings will feel the momentum of the home crowd but the Canucks will put many shots on net against Jonathan Quick in Game 3.
