In a game from NHL, we will see Chicago Blackhawks at New York Rangers.
The Chicago Blackhawks lost for the 6th time in their last 7 games at New Jersey last time out by 8-5. The Blackhawks are rock bottom in their division and I can’t see them climbing from this hole anytime soon. Center Dylan Strome is playing very well at the moment after he was acquired from Arizona while the all-star Patrick Kane is the leading scorer. He has 10 goals and 20 points over the past 9 contests.
The New York Rangers have also lost 6 out of 7 games while allowing 34 goals before ending their frustrations with a 6-2 victory over Carolina two days ago. Ryan Strome, Dylan’s brother, was also acquired earlier in the season and he is playing very well at the moment. He registered 6 goals and 11 points in 27 games for the Rangers.
Both teams are struggling and it is hard to pick anyone to win this game. Still, the Blackhawks have the better players and its high time they started playing like a team. Clearly, their offense is good and it can punish anybody.
