Randy’s Free Pick

The New Jersey Devils have been road warriors all season long, and that shouldn't change here. The San Jose Sharks cant get out of their own way this season, mainly due to a defensive effort that is one of the worst in the league. Playing at home hasn't helped the Sharks, either. A bit juicy on the price, but I'm still riding with the Devils to get the job done.
