TIME: 7 p.m. CT

The Blackhawks return to the United Center on Wednesday night for just the second time in the last 29 days as the New York Rangers visit Chicago for the only time this season (TICKETS).


CHI: 26-25-8, 60 PTS (7th in Central)
NYR: 30-24-4, 64 PTS (7th in Metropolitan)


Chicago fell 3-2 to the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday night. Ryan Carpenter opened the scoring, notching his third marker of the season and Patrick Kane tied the game at 2-2 with just under a minute remaining in the second period. Nathan Beaulieu's goal early in the third period proved to be the game-winning marker in the contest. Neither team committed a penalty in the contest, the first NHL game this season with no infractions.

New York fell on Sunday evening to the Boston Bruins at home, snapping a four-game winning streak for the Rangers. Mika Zibanejad recorded a power play goal midway through the third period to pull within one, but Boston registered an empty-net goal in the final minute of the contest.

The Blackhawks went split the season series against the Rangers a year ago with each team winning at home. Alex DeBrincat paced the Blackhawks with three points (2G, 1A) last season and has recorded a point in each of his four career games against the Rangers. Chicago has won three of the last four games against New York and is 6-2-1 vs. the Rangers over their last nine meetings.
