Randy’s Free Pick

The New York Rangers in the underdog role are attractive, especially given their success on the road. However, the Maple Leafs are a team I’ve backed blindly for much of the season, and they’ve provided no reason to jump off the bandwagon. The Maple Leafs continue to play great hockey at both ends of the ice, and they’ve been incredibly good at home dating back to last year. I’ll lay the cheap juice.
