NHL FREE PICK: Take the Under 4.5 LA Kings/NJ Devils. According to the Latest Trends, Kings are 0-4 Under last 4 games following a win, 4-19-3 Under last 26 vs. Eastern Conference, 7-19-6 Under last 32 Saturday games, 7-18-4 Under last 29 vs. Atlantic and 11-25-8 last 44 games as a road dog. Devils are 0-5-1 Under last 6 in series, 4-14-2 Under last 20 Stanley Cup Finals games, 3-10 Under last 13 vs. Pacific, 7-21-1 Under last 29 vs. Western Conference and is 3-8-1 Under last 12 Saturday games. This was a thriller in Game 1, as Anze Kopitar was the hero in the opener, scoring on a breakaway as the Kings improved to 13-2 in the playoffs. Los Angeles will look to stretch its road record to 10-0 as it takes on the Devils in Saturday's Game 2. The Devils managed just 17 shots on Kings netminder Jonathan Quick, but Los Angeles managed just 25 shots in the opener, its lowest total since a series-clinching win over St. Louis in Round 2. Get used to it. This will be a low-scoring series between two excellent goaltenders and solid defenses.
