Free Pick on Stars
These teams have been here before. In 2014, off a 4-2 win, the Pens had a 3-1 series lead over the Rangers. The Rangers rallied to force a Game 7 though. Once there, they completed the comeback. History is on the verge of repeating itself. Once again, the Rangers have rallied from a 3-1 deficit to force a Game 7. Momentum on their side and playing on home ice, I like their chances advancing. The Pens, who may again be without Crosby, are 24-20 on the road. The Rangers are 29-15 here at MSG. Note that the Rangers are also 21-11 (+10.2) on the season, when off a win of two or more goals.

Sunday NHL Free play. My selection is on Calgary over Dallas at 9:35 pm et on Sunday.
We won with the Stars on the puck-line in Game 6 of this series on Friday but I won't hesitate to go the other way and back the Flames in Game 7 on Sunday. Calgary has been one of the most dominant home teams in the league from a scoring margin perspective, outscoring the opposition by 1.3 goals on average. Meanwhile, Dallas checks in averaging just 2.5 goals per game on the road and we've certainly seen those scoring issues first hand here in Calgary in this series as they've managed just three goals in three games north of the border. After watching their in-province rival, the Edmonton Oilers, punch their ticket to the next round last night, look for the Flames to do the same and secure a long-awaited 'Battle of Alberta' series in the next round. Take Calgary.
