NHL FREE PICK:
Take Chicago. According to latest NHL trends, the Kings are just 6-15 in their last 21 games against the Hawks and 3-9 in their last 12 games in Chicago. The Hawks, meanwhile, are 7-1 in their last eight conference finals games, 6-1 in their last seven games versus a team with a winning record and 39-15 in their last 54 home games. Chicago created open scoring looks in Game 4 and coupled with Los Angeles' shoddy defense, the Hawks were able to emerge victorious. The Kings don't have the scorers to keep up with the Hawks, so they know they need to play a tough, physical game and keep it close until the third period. But with how poorly they've played on the road, look for the Kings to struggle and the Hawks' goal scorers to take over tonight.
