NHL FREE PICK: Take New York. According to latest NHL trends, the Bruins are 2-5 in their last seven games versus the Rangers and 3-11 in their last 14 trips to Madison Square Garden. The Rangers are also 5-1 in their last six games following a home loss of three or more goals, while the Bruins are 8-18 in their last 26 games following a win. The Bruins beat the Rangers in both teams' opener in 2013 so New York has revenge on its side. Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist hasn't looked sharp in his first two games, but the defending Vezina Trophy winner should get on a roll soon. He owns a 19-7-2 career record and a 1.58 goals-against average versus the Bruins, who should suffer their first loss tonight.
