Tale of the Tape: Rangers visit Blackhawks
The New York Rangers and Chicago Blackhawks will be seeing each other for the first time since March 9, 2012, and the sixth time in the past five years.

In the 1950s and '60s, the New York Rangers and Chicago Blackhawks would meet 14 times every season. But as they prepare to face off at United Center in this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry game (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2), the Rangers and Blackhawks will be seeing each other for the first time since March 9, 2012, and the sixth time in the past five years.

Quote of the Day

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
