Madison Square Garden
Opponent's Blog: Second City Hockey
The New York Rangers will finally return to action tonight as they take on the Chicago Blackhawks at Madison Square Garden, starting at 7:00 PM. The Rangers will be without Mats Zuccarello tonight as he is suffering from a fractured hand, but is expected to be back within two weeks. J.T. Miller was recently recalled, and will slot into his spot with Derek Dorsett still not 100% to return. Cam Talbot will get the start tonight, while Henrik Lundqvist will get the nod on Saturday afternoon.
Player To Watch:
Rick Nash is fresh off of winning a gold medal for his home country Canada, and he had a pretty good tournament in Sochi, Russia. Now with his focus shifting back to the New York Rangers, I expect him to start off where he left off prior to the Olympic break.
