NHL FREE PICK: Take the Under. According to latest NHL trends, series is 3-8 Under in the last 11 meetings in New Jersey. Flyers are 1-4 Under last 5 Thursday games, 1-4 Under last 5 following a loss of 3 or more goals, 3-9-1 Under last 13 when their opponent allows 2 goals or less in their previous game and 5-13-1 Under last 19 games playing on 1 days rest. New Jersey is 0-3-1 Under last 4 games playing on 1 days rest, 1-4-2 Under last 7 playoff games as a favorite of -110 to -150 and 1-4 Under last 5 games as a home favorite of -110 to -150. The New Jersey Devils want to make this a grind-out affair against a potent offense. They should be able to achieve that at home. But an even bigger problem is the absence of leading scorer Ilya Kovalchuk, who was out in Game 2, when they put up 4 goals.  . They may have to do it again, with Kovalchuk's status for Thursday's Game 3 still in doubt. Kovalchuk is dealing with a lower-body injury and is not likely to play. They will not attempt to go toe-to-toe with the Flyers’ instead relying on their defense and counter-attack on offense.
